In the second millennium B.C. Tyrrhenian civilization was swept away. Was it an earthquake or a tidal wave? Maybe something even more spectacularly deadly. http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/aug/15/bronze-age-sardinia-archaeology-atlantis
We have a friend who’s a chef in Austin, Corey Harris, and in her latest column in BISON REVIEW, she included this great recipe! We have so been enjoying this!
COREY’S SALSA VERDE
1 lb. tomatillos, husked, cleaned and cut in half
2 jalapeños, whole
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
4 TBL olive oil
1 bunch cilantro
2 TBL fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste.
Spray the tomatillos, jalapeños, and onion with oil, sprinkle with sea salt, and grill over mesquite chips until just starting to char. Remove, throw in blender with all the other ingredients, and chop. We like it a little chunky. We have so been enjoying this recipe as a condiment for grilled bison tenderloin steaks. Tastes great on tacos, fajitas, and burritos, as well!
Just an interesting article for your week!
Hi All! Was it a cosmic impact that caused the global cooling period known as the Younger Dryas around 12,800 years ago and decimated Clovis Culture? Those of you who read CHILDREN OF THE DAWNLAND are already familiar with this fascinating theory. We used it in the book. Our child heroes survive, of course! http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/07/150727180224.htm
This is an intriguing take on the future of humanity. Fred Singer is quite right that global cooling is inevitable. The earth goes through natural warming and cooling cycles. Just a question of when… http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/07/a_paradigm_change_redirecting_public_concern_from_global_warming_to_global_cooling.html
The chemistry of the murder victims’ teeth tells us these men were raised in the same region where they were buried, but spent a lot of the lives far away. When they came home, their people were apparently not happy to see them. Notice that from the positioning of the skeletal remains, the men appear to have been hurled into the grave. California’s native peoples traditionally went to great effort to properly bury their dead loved ones.
Well, the fifth Yellowstone tourist this year was attacked because she decided to take a selfie with her six year old daughter in front of a bison. Really?! She placed her six-year-old daughter in front of a one ton wild animal? It boggles the mind…
This is an old story, but worth remembering as we watch ancient archaeological sites being destroyed outside of North America. It happens here, too. Sadly, a few years ago several Navajo destroyed ancient rock art images of Hopi katchinas. Religious extremism is found in every culture around the world.
Also, what it looked like before…
