In Bellingham on August 30th-limited pre orders.
Click on “View Calendar” and scroll down to Boundary Bay Brewery on August 31st. Orders must be submitted by August 28 at 2 PM. I particularly liked the Cheddar Garlic Roll, the Smoked Salmon Pate and the Cinnamon Cardamon Braid. I’m looking forward to trying the Fresh Rhubarb Piroshky.
SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESSES
Send me your shout-outs for locals. Tell me something they’re doing well. I will relax my rules about being non-commercial in this pandemic to the extent that I will include shout-outs from happy customers, and news about innovations businesses are trying. If we want our restaurants and small local businesses to survive we need to patronize them. Tell me who’s doing something wonderful!
FREE DOCUMENTARY FILM
On August 18, 1919 the 19th amendment was ratified by the United States Congress providing the first women with the right to vote. CASCADIA will celebrate the centennial of this historic day the special screening of the documentary film, “Inez Milholland: Forward Into Light,” directed by Martha Wheelock. Watch the trailer here. The film honors suffragist Inez Milholland who literally gave her life fighting for the right to vote. Her martyrdom compelled women to be the first group to picket the White House, with Inez’s plea emblazoned on their banners: “How long must women wait for Liberty?” This civil disobedience and direct action pushed women’s suffrage front and center and finally into the 19th Federal Amendment. The film will be available free of charge August 15th and 16th. I will post the link and password later this week.
I was amazed at how many gardeners wanted my eggshells. I’m willing to be a collection point, or just start saving your own and let me know when you have enough to post.
Still seeking a really big cardboard box! ~ Fl!p
RADIO FREE FL!P: THE GLORY OF LOVE
Big Bill Broonzey
Especially that bent note at .58 sec, and also later. It was recorded solo, July 1957, around a year before he died. [I got to play his guitar at the Old Town School Of Folk Music in Chicago in 1971.]
Big Bill Broonzy (26 June 1898 — 15 August 1958) was a prolific American blues singer, songwriter and guitarist. His career began in the 1920s when he played country blues to mostly black audiences. Through the ’30s and ’40s he successfully navigated a transition in style to a more urban blues sound popular with white audiences. In the 1950s a return to his traditional folk-blues roots made him one of the leading figures of the emerging American folk music revival and an international star. His long and varied career marks him as one of the key figures in the development of blues music in the 20th century.
Broonzy copyrighted more than 300 songs during his lifetime, including both adaptations of traditional folk songs and original blues songs. As a blues composer, he was unique in that his compositions reflected the many vantage points of his rural-to-urban experiences. (The above is adapted from Wikipedia).
