Black Canada: A Brief History | Abagond (Reblog)

Very much enjoy a good history lesson and this was a good one! Thanks Abagond!

Black Canada: A brief history | Abagond


Unlike the Caribbean and America, slavery was never big in Canada. Instead:

Blacks came to Canada in four main waves:

1. Black Loyalists (1780s, 1810s)

2. Underground Railroad (mostly 1840s-1850s)

3. The Lily White Canada Policy (c. 1896-1962)

4. Caribbean immigration (1960s to present)


Blog Publisher's Disclaimer: This post presents an overview of what I know in 500 words or less. I do not pretend to be an expert! I mostly use present-day place names. Corrections welcomed.

Connecting this with a link from one of my other blogs, as the topics are related:

The Practice of Human Bondage: When Did Slavery Begin? (BlogJob.com)







If interested in historical fiction Under The Lion's Paw grapples with the subject of slavery; the time and place setting is the 1830's through post-civil war, in both the U.S. and Canada.

18 Marketing Trends to Watch in 2018 | Entrepreneur.com (Reblog)

I am always desperately seeking ways and means to hone my Internet, affiliate and content marketing skills. I try all the tools and resources offered (as long as they are free with an option to upgrade later). I sift through all the advice, tips and tricks from the “experts”. One thing that I have noticed and it's a story that has not changed over the years (Eh!  for about 4 or 5 years). 

It's a prediction about the future of Twitter.

Extracted this quote from an article by Entrepreneur.com titled "18 Marketing Trends to Watch in 2018".
11. Twitter dies a quiet death.
Twitter has been unable to grow users in 2017. The platform has focused on user acquisition rather than on making improvements to their ad platform. As a result, marketers are already using other social media platforms to connect with prospects. This trend will continue in 2018 as Twitter continues to struggle.

I don't know about other Twitter users but this saddens me. Nevertheless, I keep trying to prepare myself for the "Moment" when I will no longer be able to save or view any more Moments.  If this prediction is true, all I can say is:  
"Dear Twitter,
I am glad that I won't be a student attending university pursuing a business or marketing degree, because your organization will likely be a case study.
You will be remembered affectionately by me."

Movie Review: Flame of Stamboul (1951) (Reblog)

An alternative title for this blog post could be:  "Welcome to the World of Double Oh!"  Check out Double O Section, a blog for reviews of all things espionage like this 1951 movie.

"After the defeat of Germany at the end of WWII (and the end of the Forties spy classics that went with it) and before James Bond came along, most spy movies were simply crime movies with exotic settings. But as the Cold War warmed up, a few managed to subtly buck the trend in the 1950s, in some ways presaging the direction the genre would go in the Sixties, following 007's explosive cinematic debut. Columbia’s B-programmer Flame of Stamboul, directed by Ray Nazarro and starring the future governor of Hawaii Richard Denning, is surprisingly such a film. ..."






This blog's first post is dated October 2006 and is titled simply "List"; "a Top (double-oh) Seven list of people in the world of fictional spies to keep an eye on."  Interesting list.

It's 2017 and this amazing blogger is still publishing posts. Sharing the link below to the latest post.

2,500 Movies Challenge | Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) (Reblog)

I love old movies. On the hunt for a recommendation and came across this movie review of "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" (1982) starring Steve Martin (of "Saturday Night Live" fame). This blog is published by "Dave" and he plans to review a total of 2500 movies. This reblogged movie review is Number 1060. It was posted in 2010. As of June 2014, he was still posting! So much for setting yourself an achievable goal.

FYI. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid is available as an Amazon Instant Video.

If You Could Create A Monster (Reblog)

This cool post is a reblog from my fellow blogger and friend who is participating in a writing challenge.  It's perfect for the Halloween holiday!

Here are my responses to the questions, if I were going to create a monster.


What Does The Monster Look Like?

My monster would have to be green. It's a throwback from that old movie The Exorcist where the possessed girl puked up green vomit. That scene got stuck in my brain and ever since then, that puke color green is associated with monsters. Even though it was the devil. In my mind, devil and monster are the same thing!  But SHE would also be attractive or alluring.  That way people would at first want to approach her.



How Big Is The Monster?
Really huge! Way bigger than an ordinary person because it would give the monster a sense of believing SHE is too big to be overcome. Like the American banks.  (Sorry.  Bad joke.)  That way when the humans take her down, it will be a surprise! “Yeah! That's right! Take that! Bet you didn't even see us coming!!”   :)



What Is Unique About The Monster?
The monster would have a combination of traits borrowed from the X-Men mutants (because I'm not very original).  Not sure what combination, but it would be definitely be able to morph or shape-shift.  Although because it's so big, even though it can change its shape, it still wouldn't be so easy to go run and hide.



What Does The Monster Eat?

Humans! 

Monsters who eat fruits and veggies don't scare nobody! 



Where Does It Sleep?
The monster would have to sleep some place that is either extremely cold or extremely hot, because that would make it more of a challenge for the humans to try to get rid of it while it's resting up for the next day of ravaging the human race.



What would the monsters be called?

My monsters would be called Cannibellas. Well because they're flesh-eating monsters that are also female, and they're not really that ugly or crude to look at. Sort of like the sirens in Greek mythology. They could lure people, especially men.  But because they are so huge, most men would probably run from them!! :)

History of India : The Significance of 12 September | dracula fun (Reblog)

My comments: The blog publisher says the incident is minimized in the record of history. But it says they gave land grants to the families of the slain soldiers, so – in my mind - the authority gave credit where credit was due. It's better to not get any mention in history than to serve faithfully and then have your family disregarded as if you didn't do anything at all. The family who lost a member who died as a valiant soldier more often than not probably depended on that person for their own survival. It's the least the country's leaders could do.

History of the Indian army (as in India, not Native Americans).  Interesting history.

Create ~ Cook ~ Capture: Are Food Trucks Safe? (REBLOG)

Are food trucks safe? Depends on who you ask?  We are a house divided.  My husband and I would not answer this question the same.  It is a great way to picnic without needing to pack up your own food.

Hmmm?  Thinking of food trucks as a convenient way to picnic has never occurred to me.  On the plus side, all of my food truck experiences have been very satisfactory.  So I agree with blogger's conclusions.

Support Rural Communities in India : Gift a Book, Support Artisans (Reblog)

Ever consider that books you throw away might be of value to a little child? Learn more about this program.  'Aham Bhumika' is an NGO, a group of like minded people based in Bhopal, a city in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. Striving for the betterment of the underprivileged in rural areas of India, they frequently run "Donate a Book" campaigns. They also support the works efforts of the rural women to help them support their families.  (See embedded tweet below.)  I first learned of this initiative in 2014.

Most Beautiful Islands: Croatia-Dalmatian Islands (REBLOG)

So very pleased to share this link about the Croatia-Dalmatian Islands. Found the World's Most Beautiful Islands (mostbeautifullisland.blogspot.com) blog a couple of years back. It appears that neither the blog or the Facebook page has been updated since 2012, but no matter as the information provided about the most beautiful islands in the world is enough to whet your appetite and make you hunger and thirst for more. Never been to Dalmatia but one reference to this place in the New Testament and ever since it has been on my wish list of  "Places I'd Like to Go.

When the Apostle Paul* was preparing for his execution in Rome, he sent final instructions and words of encouragement to Timothy, a young man he referred to as his “son in the faith”. He told him what he expected of him and what needed to be done to carry on the missionary efforts. In what is believed to be one of his final letters to the young minister, he made mention of his “other son”, Titus. He said that Titus was on his way to Dalmatia to continue spreading the gospel message. Just that one mention of the place and my heart was captivated. 

(*REF:  Paul and Friends)
  • If you have ever been to Dalmatia, please share some of your experiences?  Provide comments below or let's discuss a guest post.  Thanks!  Thanks!!  Thanks!!
