Bourbon Vanilla coffee has a flavor like no other. Colombian beans yield a bold brew that serves as a rich coffee base for a wide variety of flavored coffee blends. And to top it all off, these beans have a bourbon vanilla flavoring. 🍨

John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, was born on this date in 1745.  Jay co-wrote the Federalist Papers along with Alexander Hamilton and James Madison.  In 1778, when Jay was chief justice of the New York Supreme Court, he wrote that criminals "multiply exceedingly. Robberies become frequent." Reflecting the traditional hue and cry, New York Law required "that all men generally be ready, and armed and accoutered, . . . and at the cry of the country, to pursue and arrest felons." From The Founders' Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms, p. 154. .

On This Day in History December 11, 1931: The Statute of Westminster was the British’s law granting the former colonies of the Dominion of Canada, the Commonwealth of Australia, the Dominion of New Zealand, the Union of Sourth Africa, the Irish Free State and Newfoundland full legal freedom unless they chose to remain subordinate to Britain. The resolutions were enacted during the Imperial Conferences of 1926 and 1930. So what exactly did this statute accomplish?

According to the post Statute of Westminster from the Canada to the World and Society website: “The British giving full legal autonomy meant the Dominions had more freedom. Now the British could no longer have nullify laws of other Dominions, the Dominions could make their own extra-territorial laws, British laws no longer applied to all Dominions and Canada could make its own laws except those that directly amended the British North America Act. Under the Statute of each of the Dominions would have the right to choose which of the new resolutions it would accept and which would be rejected in favour of past regulations.” #StatuteofWestminster #BritishHistory #CanadianHistory #AustralianHistory #NewZealandHistory #IrishHistory #UnitedKingdom #BritishColonialHistory #ColonialHistory #ColonialIndependence #BritishEmpire #OnThisDayinHistory #ThisDayinHistory #HistoryToday #TodayinHistory #History #Historia #Histoire #HistorySisco

Last week we spent the evening in Parramatta, an old stomping ground of ours. Whenever we are there I always like to take a moment to visit the female factory. I love watching the process of positive change happen within the precinct. As we drove around I explained a little of the history to the kids and showed them the old  building that once house children. They were fascinated and filled with questions which was a poignant reminder of how often the best stories to teach with are those drawn from the pages of history.

I hiked back to my productive 1775-1818 site and the ground was frozen 1-2 inches thick, had to use my pickaroon to dig a few of the signals.  Thankfully the snow had flattened a lot of the overburden and I was able to find a few targets without moving more logs. Found various 18th century buttons, another early knife blade(#5 or 6), lead roundball, pottery shards, etc.  I was lucky enough to find one more copper, a 1776 KG3 Hibernia. This site has produced the majority of my older coins found this year. #xterra705 #minelabdetecting #relichunting #savinghistory #colonialhistory #1776 #cellarhole #metaldetectingfinds #hibernia #kinggeorge3

The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, is truly a site to behold. Built by George W. Vanderbilt in the early 1890s, the mansion is the largest privately owned home in the United States. 🇺🇸 Via @biltmoreestate

Explosive! This cannon was captured by the Dutch colonial army in 1873 when they defeated the Acehnese on the island of Sumatra. The piece was a sixteenth century gift by Sultan Soleyman of Turkey (1494-1566). An Acehnese delegation visited the Turkish ruler to be praised for their attacks on the Portuguese in Malacca. They brought pepper with them. In exchange, the Sultan offered the delegates this 6 meter long gun.

The Dutch king Willem III (1817-1890) offered the war loot to @museumbronbeek and decided to place an extra wreath in gold (!) on top of it (swipe to see). The added ornament commemorates all who risked their lives for King and Country in the overseas possessions. As such, this so-called 'pepper piece' has a very dual and contested history. #bronbeek #museum #exhibitions #militaryhistory #colonialhistory #warloot #gun #cannon #giftexchange #diplomacy #aceh #sumatra #turkey #dutcheastindies #housoforange #willemiii

“Siege of Pensacola”
➖
In 1779, Spain entered the American Revolution on the American’s side. Spanish governor of Louisiana, Bernardo de Galvez, took the initiative and began attacking forts in British West Florida. He captured Mobile and Fort Bute, before turning to Pensacola, the capital of West Florida. The first attempt to take Pensacola was ruined when a hurricane dispersed the invasion fleet, which had sailed from Havana. After regrouping, the fleet sailed again and arrived in March. The Spanish grossly outnumbered the British forces with only around 2,0000 British garrisoning the fort, while the Spanish had around 7,000 soldiers. After a 61 day siege, a howitzer shell ignited a gunpowder magazine causing a massive explosion. The Spanish then poured in through the gap. The British commander, John Campbell, surrendered Pensacola and the rest of West Florida to the Spanish.

This picture depicts the Spanish forces repulsing a British sally. In the center, is Galvez, standing proud and defiantly on the ramparts. Native Americans can be seen lying injured on the ground. These were most likely Choctaws, who offered assistance to the British. The British could have had around 1,500 Natives assisting them but mismanagement by the British commander, John Campbell, caused many to go home. —-

Series of new content by moi emerging on the @creativedatabase site so head over to shadesofnoir.org.uk to read about some topics that have been emerging within public discourse, my artwork & review coverage of some phenomenal events I have had the pleasure to attending this year.
.
A few titles include:
.
- ‘Risk’ as a Buzzword
- Decolonizing & Other Acronyms, Part 2
- Regression: /rɪˈɡrɛʃ(ə)n/
- White Privilege: The Little Things
- The ‘I’ in Internet
- B.A.M.E is LAME
- Post-Back: in conversation with @ian.barrington & so much more...
.
EXTRACT [Risk as a Buzzword]:
.
...Decolonising the Institution event, hosted by the @rcasu.org.uk Co-President Benji Jeffrey to a well-oversubscribed viewership within the @royalcollegeofart Gorvy Lecture Theatre on 11th April 2018 [...] concerns regarding the usage of the term ‘risk’ within this context:
.
“How are trialling other methods in education a risk at all if the current system is failing students, Austin remarks post-event. Important to note however, [that the system] would be failing ALL students, not only those who have been historically marginalised. All students suffer because they all leave [university] with an internalised hierarchy of Art + Design histories/realities – with western/whiteness at the centre.
.
[Therefore, whilst] this system demeans everyone’s humanity, […] for some it might inflict feelings of loneliness/isolation, for others it gives institutional validation/supremacy” (Austin, 2018).
.
How then can risk be explored through managing exposure? .
Who has the necessary skills to guide us in the ongoing anthology of decolonisation? Students? The Teaching Staff? Policy Makers? Similarly we musk ask again, what does decolonisation mean?
.
HAPPY READING 📖

Captain David Judson House. 1723.

Exploring Stratford's past - and mine! In second grade, my class took a field trip to Judson House. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I was bored. I've grown since then.

The house is from 1723, but the foundation dates to the 17th century.

This little cutie just arrived this week, the Chain of Hearts or Ceropegia woodii. She's tiny, a gift, and lots of her wee stems were crushed in transit, so she's getting lots of TLC. Here's a closeup of her tiny trailing hearts. It's hard not to have visions of her settling in and becoming a magnificently prolific hanging sculpture over time. Am sharing these because the leaves are so pretty 🧡🌱and also to include the first European illustration of the plant, by Botanical Artist Matilda Smith. Smith's work is really special. The chain of hearts is native to the Kingdom of Eswatini, Zimbabwe and South Africa. When a living plant was sent to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew in 1894, Smith illustrated the variegated variety for Curtis’s Botanical Magazine in 1900. Her work is so lovely. This second image is courtesy of Wikipedia :) Happy Sunday! 🧡🌱

🕺💃Weekend Vibes 💃🕺 ◇♧My Love For Contrast♤♡
Wearing a 70's inspired Flared Sleeve Polka Dot Blouse with a Bright Pink Tangail Saree!! 👑💎
Also wearing a Big Cocktail Ring brought at @hm London years Ago....
🤗
 Here is another interesting Story.I  always saw this bright pink Cotton Saree that was brand New hanging in My Amma's Closet. She never really Wore it...and as I admired the Artsy border I never really understood why this neglected piece sat unnoticed. 
I rarely asked Mumma to give me her Saree's but this One time I made an exception. She didn't take a Minute,this brand new Hand me down became one of My Best Friends. It is of a super soft Cotton textile and the border is a Contrasting yellow. Tangail as I read in Wiki was produced in Bengal and parts of Bangladesh...during the colonial period the Britishers tried to destroy Systematically the Weaving industry but Tangail survived and the Weavers of West Bengal adopted some of these Gorgeous traditions and so Tant or Tangail survives!! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

🕺💃Weekend Vibes 💃🕺 ◇♧My Love For Contrast♤♡ Wearing a 70's inspired Flared Sleeve Polka Dot Blouse with a Bright Pink Tangail Saree!! 👑💎 Also wearing a Big Cocktail Ring brought at @hm London years Ago.... 🤗 Here is another interesting Story.I always saw this bright pink Cotton Saree that was brand New hanging in My Amma's Closet. She never really Wore it...and as I admired the Artsy border I never really understood why this neglected piece sat unnoticed. I rarely asked Mumma to give me her Saree's but this One time I made an exception. She didn't take a Minute,this brand new Hand me down became one of My Best Friends. It is of a super soft Cotton textile and the border is a Contrasting yellow. Tangail as I read in Wiki was produced in Bengal and parts of Bangladesh...during the colonial period the Britishers tried to destroy Systematically the Weaving industry but Tangail survived and the Weavers of West Bengal adopted some of these Gorgeous traditions and so Tant or Tangail survives!! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Shoot Done at the Lovely Cafe Quaint,Jaipur @jawaharkalakendra Picture Credits @buddhaeye . . . . #jaipurdiaries  #colonialhistory  #indianhistory  #weaving  #britishindia  #allaboutjaipur  #instablogs  #instapics  #jawaharkalakendra  #photographyoninstagram  #photographersoninstagram  #sareerevolution  #saree  #sarinotsorry  #culturevulture  #bbcculture  #bbc  #incredibleindia  #desifashion  #textilesofindia  #victoriaandalbertmuseum  #clothes  #beyourself  #bodypositive  #noairbrushing 
Here is the other surface find from my quick hunt yesterday. A flat button with a plain front and beautiful design on the back. Funny how all the decoration is on the back! .

You'll never go unwelcomed by the architectural beauties when in Mumbai. This 19th century colonial period structure with its Venetian-Gothic style of architecture stands tall and strong since then, and has been recognised as the UNESCO Heritage site for all the right reasons. This is Rajabai Clock Tower in the Fort Campus of University of Mumbai. A well maintained, managed and conserved colonial structure, known for its architecture, stained glass and also the tunes of the clock after every 15 minutes, adds to the beauty of this city. ❤

Seventy-seven years ago today, the world irrevocably changed for so many Charlotteans as they learned of the attack on Pearl Harbor and awaited the entry of the United States into World War II. Cade Lee Austin was 16 years old on December 07, 1941. By 1944, he had enlisted in the U.S. Navy. The dress blue uniform blouse and navy flag hat seen here were a part of that journey taken by a young 19 year old sailor as he traveled half a world away in service of his country.

In 1876, a ship carrying exhibits to be displayed at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition from the rapidly developing colony of Victoria didn't quite make the journey - the captain was accused of sabotage but acquitted, and many public figures lost credibility because of the mishap.

I'm thrilled to have the chance to analyse these events as well as their repercussions further through a Masters in History at @unimelb! Thank you to @_annagrace_smith, @_laidey.ofthe.lake_, @jessiefrommelbourne, @bibliovita, @otsara, @girlprinter, and of course my family (@seememories) and friends for the support so far! The images are of the exhibition itself, a stereoscopic view of the Victorian court, and finally, the letter that started this whole journey.

This is my first piece of pewter silverware! Nice little colonial spoon bowl with a clam shell pattern on the back. It might not look like much, but saving history that could be 300 + years old is amazing to me!

Today, most of our Christmas celebrating comes to an abrupt end once the presents have been opened and the meal eaten.

But in the 18th century, December 25 kicked off the first of the 12 days of Christmas (in colonies that actually celebrated the holiday, anyway). New Year’s Eve didn’t warrant a lot of special attention. The 12th night, January 6, was considered a good occasion for balls, parties and weddings.

We are allowed to throw it all right back to last year right?

#TBT to May 2017 
This is the Emanuel House standing in its 80s right in Lagos Island. This edifice takes nothing short of the Afro-Brazilian architecture with its concrete balustrades (way different from the usual balusters as seen in buildings like the Old Secretariat along the Marina etc) and it’s plain Doric columns (which are part of the classical orders of columns in architecture) and some Doric pilasters on the left side of the structure. Hopefully we at The Facade Nigeria don’t have to start a hashtag or petition for its safety and longevity ☺️

This statue of Columbus has a native Taino, inhabitants before the Europeans, named Anacaona. She was the first Indian to learn to read and write, as she is doing on the statue. Today (Dec 5) is an anniversary when Columbus was in the Dominica Republic.

Stone wall along the Dean Family Cemetery, heading straight off down a hill, into the woods. With an abundance of stone and boulders in this rocky terrain, stone walls were incredibly common in colonial Massachusetts and Rhode Island (and even today, too). You'll often find centuries old stone walls in the woods, the old property lines of the past. .

What a fun day exploring old Spanish forts around St. Augustine! The first is Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest masonry fort in the US, the Spanish started construction in 1672 and completed it in 1695! The second smaller but equally exciting one is Fort Matanzas constructed in 1740 to protect Castillo. •

Join fellow patriots on the banks of the Delaware River to watch the 66th annual reenactment of George Washington’s daring 1776 Christmas night river crossing. During the event, several hundred reenactors in Continental military dress listen to an inspiring speech by General Washington and then row across the river in replica Durham boats.

The reenactment is set for Tuesday, December 25, 2018. The crossing will begin at 1:00 PM, but early arrival is strongly recommended in order to get a good spot on the viewing line. Admission is free!

The church at Port Arthur was gutted by fire in 1884.  If you look closely as the tower you can see the reddish burnt stone above where the old shingle roof once was. #portarthur #portarthurhistoricsite #ruinedchurch #tasmania #tasmanpeninsula #discovertasmania #convicthistory #exploretasmania #australianhistory #tasmanianhistory #colonialhistory
This is the most poignant scene for me at Port Arthur: the ruined church amidst the tress planted by people homesick for a country they might never see again.  The church was never consecrated (as it was shared) and over a thousand people worshipped in it each Sunday in its heyday.  #portarthur #portarthurhistoricsite #ruinedchurch #tasmania #tasmanpeninsula #discovertasmania #convicthistory #exploretasmania #australianhistory #tasmanianhistory #colonialhistory

Last week Marabou posted about colonial language shaping the way people understand African history and culture at the British Museum. Last Friday, coordinated actions by Decolonize This Place at The Brooklyn Museum and at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) asked for accountability and repatriation of African objects. As people demand museums acknowledge and rectify historical transgressions, how are institutions responding? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Over the past two weeks there have been articles about French President Macron vowing to return pillaged African objects, the Rapa Nui and the Chilean government continuing to petition the British Museum for the return of Hoa Hakananai’a, and the British Museum “returning” objects to Nigeria. Public interest in repatriation of objects and acknowledgment of colonial forces shaping the way museums are structured is increasingly reflected in the mainstream news. Marabou has compiled some articles and annotated them for your reading pleasure. 🌈🤓🗞 The articles highlight the British Museum, the French Government, and the Brooklyn Museum.

Yet another of the wonderful images shared by a local family, cant wait to see what else they have safely stored!

We love that this community holds so tightly to its treasured memories and lifts up its own.

How lucky Old Schoolhouse Milton is to have even a small part of this history to treasure and share!

Indian soldiers pace, as the band wait to join Independence Day celebrations at Wagah border. Indian and Pakistani soldiers perform a daily confrontational march and flag ceremony here, at a gate on the Radcliffe Line, drawn by the British in 1947.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was as close as I got to Pakistan this summer, as obtaining a visa and entry into India with any connection to Pakistan, including heritage or a visa in your passport, is highly unlikely. Right-wing Hindu nationalism in India is dangerously strong, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BJP party, which has close political ties with the Hindu supremacist party RSS, which was inspired by the likes of Hitler and Mussolini’s fascist ideologies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

• European Barmaids in 19th/20th century colonial territories -
European barmaids were banned from working in 1902 in India (Calcutta) and Burma. Bars had become a place where European- mainly British- women were more frequently working at in colonial territories such as India. The ban was placed because in serving mixed race and Indian men they were blurring the lines between social and racial hierarchy and the government were worried about too much cultural fluidity. In short, white British and European women serving colonised men was seen as the wrong way around. Bars also led to sexual encounters which again mixed racial boundaries according to opponents of the ‘barmaid’. These women, after the ban, continued to work in less official bars and also in prostitution but the authorities didn’t care as long as officially it wasn’t seen that white women were serving a ‘lesser race’ in their words. 🍸 -
Such a small part of life was a large microcosm of colonial beliefs in not blurring the established lines between the colonised and the coloniser. -

In short, white British and European women serving colonised men was seen as the wrong way around. Bars also led to sexual encounters which again mixed racial boundaries according to opponents of the ‘barmaid’. These women, after the ban, continued to work in less official bars and also in prostitution but the authorities didn’t care as long as officially it wasn’t seen that white women were serving a ‘lesser race’ in their words. 🍸 - Such a small part of life was a large microcosm of colonial beliefs in not blurring the established lines between the colonised and the coloniser. - - #history  #modernhistory  #colonialhistory  #india  #britain  #england  #europe  #indianhistory  #britishhistory  #calcutta  #burma  #britishempire  #racism  #empire  #bar  #alcohol  #beer  #women  #womenshistory  #womensrights  #prostitute 
Just came across the most fascinating book in Barnes and Noble.. a history of Chesapeake Bay region historic architecture by the research department at Colonial Williamsburg. Excuse me while I nerd out on bricklaying styles 😆#VirginiaHistory #ColonialHistory

My real life #bookshelf and #reading view. I have read most of these, with a few exceptions. They are a mess because my youngest enjoys pulling them all out to look at them! .
.
A few of these that you can kind of see were on my #2018booklist, and one that struck me pretty hard was, Congo: The Epic History of a People by David Van Reybrouck.
.
I liked the narrative style of this book, it isnt dry or boring, and it feels truly like storytelling; the reader is drqwn in with vivid descriptions of the people and places, so much so that you can't help but feel the hot sun and feel the dust settle on your skin. The other thing I liked about it, is that it covers history pre-colonization: most books tend to treat Congo as though it just began to have history in the 1880s. .
That said, I got stuck and havent yet finished, as the topic and its devestation hit very close to home. It covers the history of what is now DRC from the period from the beginning of the slave trade to the more recent first and second Congo wars- the deadliest conflict since WWII- with what is estimated at 5-6 million people having lost their lives. .
My husband grew up in the time of these two wars, which to some extent continue to today, and when I read these stories I see the faces of my in laws- hence me not finishing it. If you can, though, I recommend it to anyone interested in knowing more about the region- and really, Western countries have been involved in various ways politically, militarily and economically, so its worth a read if only for that. .

【BCS Event - De Onkruidenier's Natural Cement Workshop 🌞🌞🌞】 Yesterday our residency artist group De Onkruidenier host a natural cement workshop collaborating with local ecological expert Mr. Chen (陳江河老師) and Cheng Chen Environmental Education Foundation (財團法人建臻環境教育基金會) in an cultural building of Cheng Family (程氏古厝). In the morning, Mr. Chen showed us along the Shalun Beach (沙崙海灘) to see the coastline that has deep connection with the colonial history. After lunch, Jonmar and Ronald demonstrated how they make organic cement following the recipe from their ancester made by sand, shell, rice and sugar. Afterwards, all the participants created their own compressed landscape with the materials they collected from the beach with the natural cement as glue. .. It was a very relaxing afternoon and everyone enjoyed constructing a miniature garden. Thanks to all the friends who joined yesterday.

I can't believe I found a second piece to the Andrew Jackson Hard Times Token. I now have the complete donkey! Do you think this broke from a plow? Found both on a farm permission.

Among our many artifacts at #woodbridgeonthederwent is this ball and chain. Many of our guests try lifting it, and how the poor beggars got around dragging or carrying this, is beyond imagining.
