Sabine Parish, Louisiana

Boundary disputes followed the purchase. The Neutral Ground Treaty was affected in , declaring the area “Sabine Free State,” a demilitarized zone, which became the neutral strip for outlaws, desperadoes, criminals and filibusters. Both nations claimed ownership but neither exercised control. English speaking settlers from the older eastern states began moving into the section during the westward expansion years before the boundary was established. They settled on Spanish grants known as Rio Hondo claims. One of the earliest settlers was Thomas Arthur, who filed a claim for acres 2. In , Spain abandoned all claims to land east of the Sabine River and the United States moved in to establish law and order. Great caravans of home seekers marched over the old highways and many of them settled in present-day Sabine Parish.

I reviewed it last year and didn’t like it straight at all. This is also the year the Lincoln penny replaced the Indian head cent design. I have managed to get my hands on a number of samples of Johnnie Walker Red Label which occupy a range of periods from the s through today. But this isn’t that post.

This photonegative-based stern-on view of an eight in mid-stroke, designed by Fritz Fenzl Aicher, Joksch, Wirthner, Nagy and printed by Fehling, Hanover in stunning colors produced one of the most highly acclaimed posters issued for the Munich Olympics.

How can I tell how old my blanket is? There are a number of clues to dating the manufacture of various point blankets. If the blanket has a label the task is fairly easy. I have identified and dated some two-dozen styles of labels used by the Hudson’s Bay Company since I have also done a considerable amount of research on the dates of labels used on blankets made by many mills like Early’s of Witney, Pendleton and Jacob’s of Oregon, as well as for blankets marketed by retailers other than HBC, like the T.

In my second book The Collector’s Guide to Point Blankets there is an extensive section on labels and their approximate dates.

You have probably read about or heard stories of people — maybe even your relatives — who ate decades-old canned vegetables or fruit and lived to tell the tale. In one famous study conducted in , for example, National Food Processors Association scientists analyzed year-old cans of corn that had been stored in a home basement in California. Lab results were similar for canned tomatoes and red peppers recovered from a century-old sunken steamboat discovered near Omaha, Neb.

While these stories are interesting, as you store food for long-term emergencies, you are right to wonder:

Then come the breadth of undefined fruitiness and the sweet floral notes of pansies, violets, and lilacs.

Field Artillery March” and published in sheet music form with different lyrics. The recording was released as a double-faced inch single on Victor , with “Liberty Loan March” on the other side. The usual legal battles ensued regarding the rights to the song and these were never properly settled.

He went on to record it on at least three other occasions. Elvis sings the “Merry Christmas to you” line a couple of times during the takes of “Thinking About You.

They settled to the east of ancient Elam during the period of instability and migration which occurred throughout the Middle East between BC. During this same period other tribal groups such as the Aramaeans and the Sea Peoples were causing chaos further west. Despite occasional theories which have them descending from the Caucuses, the Persians were clearly of Indo-Iranian stock, an Indo-European grouping which formed in Central Asia, somewhere between modern Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.

This origin has some support in the similarity of names towards the eastern side of the Caspian Sea, and the resemblance noted between Old Persian and Sogdian languages. They drifted into what is now Iran from the east alongside other similar groups which included the Alans , Mannaeans, and Medians , probably via Sogdiana and Transoxiana, not long after Indo-Aryan groups had started to enter India.

Alternatively you might be curious about something you have either inherited, or found in a thrift store, charity shop, car boot sale or junk shop.

Maybe you have a work of art lying unwanted in the attic or garage, or stashed behind a wardrobe. Whatever the circumstance, the point is that you need to know more about your old picture or painting. This article will attempt to give you some practical advice on researching and marketing an old work of art. The vast majority of these paintings, prints, and etchings will have a relatively low market value and may be tricky to sell, but don’t give up just yet because there are many lost and forgotten masterpieces out there just waiting to be re-discovered.

Steps to researching and appraising antique art. First make sure it an original rather than a copy or a print. Examine with a magnifying glass to identify whether the piece was painted or printed 2.

If it is a print, it still may be worth something. If yours is a limited edition it will be worth more than a normal print.

Importance to Native trade[ edit ] The classic design featuring green stripe, red stripe, yellow stripe and indigo stripe on a white background In the North American fur trade , wool blankets were one of the main European items sought by native peoples in exchange for beaver pelts, buffalo robes, pemmican, moccasins, and other trade goods. They were desired because of wool’s ability to hold heat even when wet, and because they were easier to sew than bison or deer skins.

Wool cloth of one kind or another was traded as far back as the French regime in North America — , but HBC point blankets were introduced in to compete with similar blankets offered by the Montreal-based private traders. The “point” system was invented by French weavers in the mid th-century since then, as now, blankets were shrunk as part of the manufacturing process.

The word point derives from the French empointer, meaning “to make threaded stitches on cloth.

Indeed, what makes a great whisky event? But comfort, decadence, and camaraderie have evolved, for me at least, to be almost as important. I’m going to make the case that Matt Lurin’s Water of Life just might be the ultimate whisky event. I’m going to lay out my reasoning in detail and back it up with photos and descriptions of last year’s astonishing event and details of this year’s which continues a dramatic evolution towards whisky event greatness.

You can see an example of another VFG member’s Pendleton jacket with a similar label without wool mark, or R, in this case here that we know to be at least s from the extensive material content labelling.

Six people have lost their lives this year alone, so deadly is this inhospitable mountain, where winds of up to mph whip sheer rock faces while the tiny figures slowly scaling its icy ridges are consumed by what is known as summit fever, putting themselves at unimaginable risk to reach the top. These are the treacherous conditions which the TV presenter Ben Fogle and former Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton will face when they attempt to scale Everest in May At 44 and 37 respectively, both with spouses at home Fogle also has two young children with his wife Marina and blossoming careers, the decision to pack themselves off to Everest and attempt a climb which can frequently prove fatal, could be considered foolhardy.

I want to be the dad who does them. But I think the best relationships are the ones that keep each other on their toes. I think everyone has something that attracts them to their partner that also frustrates them. Are they ready for the inevitable gossip? Each year, hundreds of climbers are thwarted by poor weather or simply not getting high enough, quickly enough, and must call off their attempt. The Everest sweet spot – when the conditions are just right – occurs over two weeks in May.
