Talkin' 'bout a Revolution

On August 10, 1585, Queen Elizabeth of England signed a treaty of support for the "Dutch Rebels", an outgrowth of the Water Geuzen.  They had, at the time, no homeland but were fighting against Spain which occupied and ruled the low countries.  When finally victorious, they founded the Dutch Republic.  This pissed off Phillip the Sap so much that he started the Anglo-Spanish was and dropped a bundle on the the Spanish Armada.

On August 10, 1680, under the leadership of Po Pay or Pope', the indigenous pueblo people began a revolt against the Spanish colonial rule of Santa Fe de Nuevo México. This was a Spanish province generally located in the area currently known as New Mexico but larger than today's State. The Pueblo revolutionaries killed some 400 Spaniards and drove the remaining 2,200 settlers out of the province.  The Spaniards were unable to reconquer the area for twelve years.

August 10, 1782 was the birthday of aptly named insurgent leader Vicente Guerrero.

Though the Pueblo Revolution doesn't get a lot of ink  in the "World History" books, part of the date does.The 10th of August is often used to denote the Storming of the Tuileries Palace in  1792, ending the French monarchy with the arrest of Louis XVI.

In between those last two events we find the effective date, so to speak, of the revolt of the 13 North American colonies against England.  Though the US Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776, news of that event did not reach England until August 10, 1776.

Interesting history of the convergence of those various revolutions.

I've got to get my mower blade turning revolutions today...trying to mop up a few last acres. So better head out in the AM cool (about 70F right now).

Take care everyone and thanks for the OT, el.

That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

with her notion of women standing for what is humane. Unfortunately history shows otherwise. The few women who have achieved power and prestige have not exhibited a concern for being exceptionally humane. It could be that class is the problem as opposed to gender. When those in power are capable of consigning huge swaths of people to the category of "deplorables" humanity is in trouble.

Thanks for the OT el, ( I finally addressed your carrot issue, back in the carrot column:-) ) and good morning all.

what a great bike, i missed riding it even though it hurts my hands gripping
upon return stopped short in front of storage door
lost my balance and tipped over against wall of neighbors house
banged left shoulder hard enough to break my collarbone
which is why i am typing like archie the cockroach today

i am so lucky neighbors gf was there and she went out and bought me a sling and some cbd lotion
and she called to check on me later and that was really nice
are you sure you dont want to go to the doctor she kept asking
well yes i would i said but i cant afford it

im pretty sure ice and rest and mobilization will be recommended
and i am already doing those things
took an advil dose it made me sick to my stomach but no hives
it got me through the day and night dozing upright in my chair
right on

big challenge carrying water down to little eden
yesterday was over 100f today will be cooler
second crop of long beans growing

@eyo

I meant to say earlier if any of the sweet potatoes are too big for your oven, saw them in two and bake in pieces.

Most clavicle fractures heal within 4 to 8 weeks.

I'm sure you found this info too...

The vast majority of collarbone fractures can be treated with a simple sling. Sometimes a swath is wrapped around the sling to hold it to the body. Occasionally a figure-of-eight splint is used. This wraps around both shoulders and the neck to hold the shoulders back and up. Either method is appropriate treatment for the broken collarbone. Patients will be instructed to wear the sling at all times until there is no further pain with movement. This is usually 2 to 4 weeks for children and 4 to 8 weeks for adults.

Be careful and watch yourself. Anyway to rig the bike to carry water as you walk it to the garden? Best to keep weight off your shoulder to heal quickly and well. Do you have nettles for tea? Many suggest it is helpful.

number 1 bicycle injury, especially among serious riders, I'm told, and many happen when stopping or standing still. Hope it heals properly and soon.

Watch those high temps and stay hydrated. Any way to find some old scrap rain gutters and use them to let gravity move the water? Or a long hose, a funnel, and a ton of patience?

get well, stay safe and have a good one

Wasn't Emiliano the original guy that said "It is better to die on my feet than to live on my knees"? I think so. Lots of hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants have a pic of him with that quote attributed to him on the wall. So a hero to me just for that.

If you read the lyrics, it is commendable how often Ian Anderson worked a bird mention, often as metaphor, into his poetry. Far above and beyond probably any other contemporary 'rock' artist. He is a great poet, not to mention, songwriter, artist, musician, theatrical director etc. At 16 in '72 I saw the Thick as a Brick tour in LA. Whole album straight through, mind blown forever. Of course that was the first tour without Clive Bunker and Glenn Cornick, so MK III Jethro Tull. I don't count the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus appearance with Tony Iommi on guitar as a version since it didn't last but a few weeks, though that performance was great.

have a goodun'!

This is the live stream going on for over an hour. I see lots of firemen sifting through debris looking for people.

Baltimore Gas Explosion Kills 1, Levels Homes

One woman was killed and several others were injured in what authorities described as a major gas explosion Monday in a northwest Baltimore neighborhood that sparked a search for people who may be trapped.

Two people were transported to a hospital in serious condition following the blast involving three homes, the city fire department said in a statement posted on Twitter. An adult woman died and fire department personnel “continue to search for more,” the statement said.

The local firefighters union reported that at least five people, including children, remained trapped.

Video shows several residential lots covered with piles of scattered debris, the homes completely flattened. Neighboring homes were seen with broken windows and damaged walls.

Oye that was horrible and I think PGE got to skate on serious charges and only had to pay a small fine? Wasn’t Enron the last company that was seriously charged for anything, but then Lay just suddenly died the next day after he was found guilty? How convenient for him.

Have you been having rolling black outs this summer so that they don’t burn California to the ground?
