After 10 years without I have
satellite again thanks to my Brother Mike W. I’m absolutely
addicted to the H2 channel when it’s about Ancient Aliens and
America Unearthed; both are very well produced in that they bring up
more questions than answers that leave the viewer to make up their
own mind. In fact, they are the very opposite of organized religion.
I love especially when my own belief that we here on this Earth have
been created as an extraterrestrial alien ant farm science project is
validated though not in those words. Ayyyyy!!!!
Yeah, yeah, yeah believe what you like
but please don’t deny or diss other people’s creation stories,
which are every bit as valid as any other that have millions of
followers or just a relative few. Just to reiterate: the Great Flood
must have been an actual event because most cultures have their own
stories about what happened; not just the Judeo-Christian story about
Noah and the Ark.
In fact I saw an episode generally
about North American Indian Peoples’ Creation Stories, NOT MYTHS,
about how the flood wiped out the previous civilizations because the
people became wicked and then the creation of our Turtle Island where
we live now. In addition to oral history there are also really big in
every sense of the word signs on rock art, in caves, hieroglyphics,
pyramids, ancient cities; and texts, mounds, artifacts, human remains
and even colossal figures drawn in a desert that can only be seen
from the air like the Nazca Lines in the plains of Peru and the
Carnac Stones in France.
Yes I freely shout that I am a ‘nerd’
and do not apologize for it, rather I make a point of keeping an open
mind for unfamiliar ideas, practices and cultural beliefs. I like
that about me and in other people. So when I see that not only books
but television programs that have the integrity to investigate and
broadcast non-mainstream shows I watch them and crave more.
The most fascinating show I watched
was a woman archaeologist who in the 1950s, in a dig in central
Mexico, came upon artifacts that were dated back to 300,000-400,000
years ago made by people!!! WE people here in America where our
ancestors are still being portrayed and dismissed as having only come
here via the Bering Strait 10,000-13,500 years ago. Gaghhhh!!! The
findings were not published because she being a she and the dating
was so incredible no one could or would acknowledge it and then the
artifacts conveniently disappeared.
For not remembering her name I
apologize; I feel she deserves justice and acclaim for her work.
On the weekend for lack of
enlightening programming on satellite I watched “Bizarre Foods”
hosted by Andrew Zimmerman, famous for eating bugs, gizzards and
other queasily questionable – to my palate – foods. But recall
that I consider keeping an open mind is essential so … while I had
a hard time deciding if I would actually eat this or that ethnic
delicacy there was also the story of the culture behind it which was
wonderfully interesting and enlightening.
Like, I would totally eat a chocolate
covered cricket (or pretty much anything smothered in chocolate, I’m
being real here) but would pass on most of any innards of a beast
that was barely cooked. I started out hungry when I was watching the
show but got rather green about the gills when even Andrew grimaced
at the feast in Madagascar, I mean that guy will shove anything in
his face!!! But what a job he has, hey? He travels the world, eating
all along the way and gets paid for it. Big, bald obese white men
have all the luck! I want in that game.
Speaking of game I asked my Dear
Gramma Rose about what she used to eat as a kid. Her father Henry La
Prairie was a trapper and log burler and they lived here in Rezberry.
She said they had a cow and that the family ate what ever was put on
their plate. They dined on a lot of catfish, rabbits of course,
porcupine, beaver, venison, moose and spuds; all the good stuff and
she’s 96 years-old now. No fast food in those days unless you count
deer and rabbits.
I’m trying to eat better again, I
did very well for a while until a holiday feast came up and all bets
were off. My main goal is to be healthy as I can in this crazy
preservative filled GMO insecticide world. I’m sure I won’t be
chasing any rabbits and reading its label like I do grocery items but
I won’t count it out either.
No stern lectures from me; I just want
my People to Live Long and Prosper. Thank you, Spock, for that
