My moccasins are new,
. . . and smell of fresh
buckskin.

They are tight and strong,
for life is a great journey;
. . . a sacred path.

And the circle awaits me . . .

The circle is a whole.
The circle is life,
and its surroundings.
Our surroundings . . .
It is time.

The circle is me,
and the circle is you.

a lot of wisdom there!!!!!!!!!

"My moccasins are new, and smell of fresh buckskin."

An Indian woman's tunic, hundreds of year old,
hand crafted at a time when steel needles and
spun thread did not exist.

Designed to compensate for a woman's breasts
and large pockets for gathering and carrying.

An Indian man's tunic, made by an Indian Woman.

Notice this is not cut for a woman's breasts
and there are no pockets. Men are the hunters
who bring home kill too large for pockets.

Ceremony dresses for Indian women. The decorations
are sea shells.

Again, all of this, hundreds of years back, sewn
with bone needles or hardwood needles employing
leather thread, gut string or hand woven thread
from plant fibers.

On your far right, reed weaving much like in
a previous picture.

I can't pronounce anything correctly, My relatives pronounce everything perfect. Dad and a few aunts and uncles go to Norway every few years to keep in contact with the relatives still over there, they visit the original family homestead, which is still kept up. Someday I will get the chance to go as well but right now I am to busy with my family. I don't get much time off with 4 children.

"are those choctaw"

No, these are tribes of the Southwest, Hopi,
Navaho and others; Arizona, New Mexico, parts
of Texas. These areas are closer to home and
more studied than Choctaw and Cherokee, save
for the Trail of Tears period of Southeast
tribes transplanted into Oklahoma.

Much Indian history, a lot of Indian history
is forever lost because of genocide. Hundreds
of tribes became extinct, through genocide.
We know very little about those tribes.

My college classes focused on California Indians
and Indians of the Southwest.

Not sure about the hand rolling but I have heard
a rumor Tex gets a thrill riding bareback, both
he and his horse.

Interesting study in Population Geography.

East coast Indians, the least is known because
those tribes are the first to be assimilated by
the (Borg) Anglo culture. Do not be confused,
a lot is known about tribes along the Eastern
Seaboard areas of North America, from Canada
down to Florida. However, anthropologists
cannot fully sort out which traditions and
cultural aspects are original and which are
tainted by the Anglo invasion.

Moving westward towards the Mississippi River,
a bit more is known because assimilation by
the Anglo cultures took place a century or
two later than in the Eastern Seaboard.

Midwest and south, even more known, save for
some tragic events. By the time Anglos arrived
west of the Mississippi, America was a country
with a standing army. During this time, Indians
were simply slaughtered causing the loss of
almost all Indian history; Trail of Tears.

Plains Indians and Southwest Indians, much more
is known because they were amongst the last to
be slaughtered by Anglos. Up until 1900 to
1920, many Southwestern Indians, especially
the Navaho, still lived traditional lifestyles.
These Indians lived in remote wilderness areas
and are nomadic in nature making them harder
to hunt down and kill. Much is known about
tribes of the Southwest.

Best known are West Coast Indians, from California
to Canada, because by the time Anglos arrived in
the Wild West, Anglos has become a little bit
more civilized and laws had been passed to
protect Indian tribes.

Our knowledge of tribes is a direct reflection
of the westward movement of Anglos. Least amount
of knowledge is in the east, the greatest amount
of knowledge is in the west. This is an ironic
and tragic result of expansion and genocide.

Much the same happened in Central America and
today's Mexico as the Spanish invaded and killed
Indians in search of gold, spices and other
exotic trade goods. Difference is the Spanish
were successful at completely wiping out Indians
in that region, thus we know so little about
the Aztec, Inca and other tribes. They remain
a mystery of extinction in history.

anglos killed just to kill. if you read anout lewis and clarks expedittion before anglos moved west and compare it with today it shows how this country has been completely stripped of most of its natural beauty. the trail of tears is another chapter that was conveniently left out of most history books, at least when i went to school. it angers me to see how what really happened differs from what is taught in school !

Off to help load up tree trimmings at a rental
to take to the dump. Do not worry, my husband
will not trick me into being left at the dump
like he did years back. I dunno, some people
around here might prefer I be left at a dump.

See ya!

An update on the meth freak renter mentioned
way back there.

He is now reduced to living in a car loaned to
him by a friend in prison.

I drove by, very early morning, and noticed him
sleeping in his car, sitting upright behind the
steering wheel, head leaning in an uncomfortable
position against the driver's window, mouth wide
open in a snore mode, one arm tossed over his head.

The boy has not enough brains left to at least
sleep on the backseat.

He keeps his pit bull chained to the door of his
car, in keeping with a paranoid meth freak.

He is clinging to the familiar by remaining in
the neighborhood, but never in front of our
rental. He is a completely outcast, people
around there call the police frequently to
report him as a vagrant and a drug dealer.

Senseless.

Revenge often not be needed extracted directly.
Many times people are their own worst punishment,
usually with only with a need for someone to
gently nudge them in the direction of punishment.

Now he is homeless, addicted to meth, a drug dealer
and a petty thief. Will not be long he will be
back in prison where, oddly, his quality of life
will enjoy a great improvement.

In keeping with odd, his friend who loaned him
that old Lincoln Continental, is a Morongo
Indian who receives about thirty-thousand a
month from his casino "pension" payment. He is
in prison on drug related charges.

How ironic Life hands some a good life and they
throw away that good life.

people like that usually punish themselves a lot worse that we could even if we were trying. the worst punishment is when they wake up and finally realize what they have done with their lives. this is a truism in life.

ya...

sadly, have come to realize this... I *assumed* my stuff was still available...

On another computer, I have saved Web images of several...will revive...other stuff, I could perhaps scan... I do not have the portfolio I should...lost and damaged through the years and moves...available now only in old files ("morgues") and microfiche... I haven't published anything in a few years, now...

I see Citysearch still has a few "briefs," which are interesting only academically: they have a strict word-count limit, so it's interesting to try and convey the "essence" of a place in a few words...

I went over there to copy out my Bantam Rooster
story, a really cute story which is highly
relevant to topic of discussion, all I found
is this,

"This post was removed due to vulgarity, profanity
and personal insults as well as being disruptive."

I will recreate the Bantam Rooster story for
you boys, cute funny story bound to make you
smile if not laugh.

Rather humorous, some darn good rants going
on over there, in "Purl Gurl's World."

Kinda forgot about my own board over there,
after returning here.

Oh, not Purl Gurl's World, Purl Gurl's Place.
Suppose I was not impressed enough to remember.

Yes, I was in here at three or four in the morning
a couple of days back; Grandma's Day.

No, I not a grandmother. Grandma's Day is every
single day. Grandma would also wake up around
three or four in the morning, light some coal oil
lamps, go out to our well house, fetch some fire
wood, build a fire in her stove, then prepare for
the coming day.

She would stoke her fire, pump many buckets of
water to fill her water tank inside her stove
so the men folk would have warm water for face
washing and shaving. While her water warmed, she
would make biscuits, from scratch, go out to
the smoke house, slice off some pork, fetch
potatoes from the root celler, then proceed to
cook a big breakfast for all, scrambled eggs,
a slice of ham, fried sliced potatoes along
biscuits and gravy, all washed down with great
raw milk. Maybe some butter if she churned.

Nothing as good as breakfast in kitchen warmed
by a wood burning stove and lit by coal oil lamps.
That is stove as in cooking stove.

We would not eat again until after sunset.

Periodically, when a busy day is about rise,
I will have Grandma Day. This is a day I wake
up and start the day around three or four in
the morning, like Grandma. I think we set fence
posts, poured concrete that day, at a rental.
Worked until sunset, just like on our farm.

Saturday, I grabbed our daughter and took her
along. The two of us erected about a hundred
feet of fencing during the day. This is part
of her earning her keep, although she works
full time during the week.

Today, her and I took turns operating a hundred
pound Bosch jack hammer busting up a run of
concrete, a foot wide by thirty feet long. This
including shoveling it out, wheelbarrowing and
all that. We are about to install an underground
electric run and sprinkler pipes for a rental.

The moral to this story is there is no moral.

I am just bragging about how darn hard we work.

Took a niece out to aimlessly drive around in
my Corvette. She calls, asks if we could drive
around and talk. This is her signal she has
some issues. She did. I could not resolve her
issues. Only she can do this, even though she
is only fourteen. Be sure I was both honest
and compassionate. Toughest time our lives is
when we are teenagers, very tough.

Ended the evening with a dead battery. I forgot
to turn off my headlamps when we stopped for
frozen yogurt in a mall. This responsibility
became hers. She had to break a dollar to attain
some quarters, make a phone call (we have no
cell phones) to my old man, explain were we
are and to bring jumper cables. She does fine.

While waiting for hubby to show, I spot a young
couple told her to watch. The boy has his arms
wrapped around her, she does not wrap her arms
around him. She is pushing backwards, he is pulling
her close, "Watch, he will take her arms and make
her wrap her arms around his neck." He does. This
leads to a talk about how men are control freaks,
how men are physical, demanding, all the usual
stuff. Eventually, as I predicted, she would push
away from the boy being uncomfortable. She does so.

My old man brings the wrong truck, no jumpers.
We have to ride back home to pick up cables.
My niece asks if she could just stay home.

"No, you may not. You must see this event through
from start to finish. Go fetch the jumpers," and
I tell her where to find those jumper cables.

Back at the 'Vette, she is taught how to hook
up the jumpers, let the battery charge a bit,
and she has to start the 'Vette, after being
advised how to place a stick shift in neutral.

She does just fine and rides with me back home.

Issues. She wants me to buy her a pack of smokes.
This was a tough topic to discuss. Some of her
friends have cigarettes, she wants to fit in.

Dealing with peer group pressure is so hard.

"...but smoking pot is illegal and smoking
cigarettes is legal." How do you justify this?

You do not. There is never a rational explanation
for hypocrisy.

We move on into topic of her being on a diet and
she is doing well. Sex, drugs, rock n roll, the
whole stick. I tell her I would rather she smoke
pot than cigarettes, talk about how nicotine is
the most addictive drug known, smoker's breath,
the stench, health, cancer and all that.

She is grounded for Summer, the last month of
Summer. She and friends do a sleep over, get
drunk the night of the sleep over. Next night,
the night she is to go home, they get drunk
again. She calls mom for a ride home, mom
figures out she is drunk. I explain to her
this is stupid. "You got away with this on
the first night. The second night you knew
mom would pick you up. You turned yourself
in, you confessed. That was stupid."

We talk about the importance of planning, the
importance of being a good thinker, the critical
importance of responsibility, like not drinking
and driving.

Not sure all soaked in. On the way home we pull
up next to a Mustang GT. She wants me to race
the Mustang, which is no race at all. I do not
tell her Mustangs are no match having street raced
those before, always blowing their doors off.

I do tell her if we are caught street racing, our
laws require I spend a night in jail, my 'Vette
taken away and I will be charged with child
endangerment, along creating severe family issues.

My niece did come away with a fifty dollar bill.
I asked her if she would trade her remaining two
quarters for fifty bucks, "Sh!t yes I will," and
she does. Know where she stashed that fifty I
peeled off and handed her? In her bra. Smart girl.

This led to talk about how important is being
successful and earning good money along with
how only mature and responsible people are
those who win in life; nobody will give you
fifty bucks for two quarters.

No moral but this is why I am up late, tonight,
and will be up at five in the morning, to get
right back to work.

If there is a moral, discussion boards are no
different than teenage peer group pressure.
Here people behave as their peer group does.
Most often, this behavior is inappropriate.

A lot of people, a majority of people who
participate at discussion boards, need to
grow up, need to mature, need to be responsible
and need to not succumb to peer group pressure.

At times, this discussion board teenage behavior
is downright annoying.

A bantam rooster shows up at our farm, probably
ran off from another farm down the route. He
immediately sets about proving himself to be
the King of Cocks.

This King of Cocks, every chance possible, would
come running at you to flog your ankles, peck
at your feet, all to remind you he is the true
King of Cocks. Each time, we would give him a
swift boot sending him flying across the barnyard
to land in an ego tussle and a cloud of dust.
Right back he would come running to defend his
precious ego, only to be booted again.

The King of Cocks was after the hens so much,
he literally plucked all the feathers off the
back of the hen's necks. He had those hens in
such a sexual fright, they quit laying eggs.

I am helping Grandma in her kitchen. She says,
"Child, go out there and wring that bantam's
neck then pluck him for dinner."

Dinner that night, there is just enough of the
bantam, being so small, for a few bites for
each adult. We children do not enjoy eating
the King of Cocks with so little to go around.

However, I sure enjoyed wringing his neck.

___

That is my bantam rooster story which was
removed "...due to vulgarity, profanity
and personal insults as well as being disruptive."

Sure a lot of bantam roosters around these boards.

I ain't no lady!

This is possible, Bdgee. I would expect, however,
a pattern to develop if a software glitch, such
as article numbers ending in "09" or articles
posted within a specific timeframe, displaying
problems, like vanishing.

Software glitches are very predictable, once
a glitch is found, which can be very difficult.
A glitch may appear random but never is. Software
is a collection of written instructions. To be
random, those instructions would have to change.

Could be a software problem, though. I cannot
completely dismiss this.

Might be I am cranky this morning. Might be my
attitude is tainted by typical behavior displayed
by moderators and administration at all boards.
Also possible is my back is sore from lugging
around a jack hammer leading to being snappy.

Randomness is usually a human factor, not a
software factor.

For trivia, when I operate our big yellow jack
hammer, I sit on its handles. This drives its
chisel an inch or two into the concrete before
I ever pull the trigger.

Our girl suggested my bouncing around on a
heavy duty pogo stick would probably work
better than a jack hammer.

Pretty funny, she is young and thin. Her feet
lift up off the concrete an inch or two with
each hammer cycle. I suggested she is not yet
a substantial woman.

She suggested I suck on a piece of concrete.

I suggested she shove some concrete in her pants.

Her father and my husband, suggested we both
get back to work.

I didn't mean the thing IS random, just that I can't see any pattern.

Having had, in the past, to find software bugs, I don't plan to go into it in any serious way....ain't my software.....ain't my responsibility....I hate programming....I'm proud to be lazy as hell....

deleted and I'm wondering if there is a software
problem."

This is not a software problem. Articles are
being deleted by choice. This is confirmed.

Thanks, Lady.

In the last couple of days, I've watched some "deletions" that I am certain were not due to software.

Yes, very discouraging to learn we cannot come
over here to off topic to cut loose, to have
some fun, to enjoy some smiles and laughs.

All of us are adults and should be treated
as such in exchange for our bringing true
value to this site. Without seasoned traders
like us, this board would have no value.

I have noticed off topic participation by long
time regulars is down a lot just as participation
by long time regulars is down over at hot stocks.

Pump and dump activities continue to increase.

My personal expectation is long time participants
are to be given generous leeway in exchange for
our adding significant value to Allstocks. We
display adult level responsibility and expect
to be treated with the same.

More discouraging is I was subjected to private
intimidation by a moderator to support stocks
in which this moderator is vested. I have very
serious issues with that type of behavior. More
simple, I am insulted and very angry. I will not
be dishonest with readers simply for profit by
others nor my own profit; friendship does not
include a requirement of being dishonest.

My dignity cannot be bought.

We earn money for readers and we protect readers
from loss of money. This is valuable. However,
our participation is down, significantly, as a
result of perceived treatment.

What keeps me here is our, plural, friendship.
