    Antiques Roadshow US Palm Springs CA Hour 03 (I’m not sure when this episode aired the first time.)

    At 22:13 a man presents some memorabilia from his great grandmother, Dr. Bessica Raiche. She fell in love with flying as a passenger in 1908. After that first flight, she left her medical practice and began constructing a plane along with her husband. In 1910 she became the first female aviator to fly solo.

    I’d never heard of her before; so I read more about Dr. Raiche here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bessie_Raiche

      She was a dentist first, then an aviator, then a medical doctor. You would think everyone would know her name. Unfortunately, like so many remarkable people, she was lost to time.

        Have you ever encountered one of those Facebook posts where they accuse whites of stealing history and list all the ancient people who were black? Cleopatra is one I remember. There’s a whole bunch of them. Basically, if it took place on the continent of Africa, the people were black Africans according to them. We whites stole their history and heritage.

          It’s like that with almost everything. Once the people pass away that lived through an event, the event can be turned into whatever. Racial socialism was another get rich scheme like all the other socialism branches have been from the beginning.
          If you Google search on the topic, it goes on about how they weren’t really black or white and how it was rich people that made the distinction of color to keep poor people in their place.

          Any of those “reclaimed history” sites are unhealthy to the mind and spirit. Macedonian Greeks were olive skinned but the revisionists espouse the belief Cleopatra was dark-skinned with lower African-continent tribal facial features. Apparently American black “historians” were the ones who started this whole pack of lies.

          They also claim Beethoven, Jesus Christ, ancient Israelites (thus indicating all present-day Jews are usurpers–I’ve run into that meme at CTH on occasion!!!), Mesopotamians and just about anyone living near or on the African continent. No use arguing with the brainwashed…their hate is virulent.

          BTW, ancient Egyptians didn’t think in terms of “race” as no one did at that time. They thought in terms of culture and tribal groups. There is some evidence that parts of Egyptian culture moved from south to north over thousands of years and morphed into what we think of as ancient Egyptian culture.

          Egyptians considered themselves superior to all other peoples because of their culture, not their skin color. They were fine with incorporating into their ranks members of other tribes which may have had darker skin as long as those people opted into Egyptian culture. The ruling classes married other tribal groups as part of diplomacy and peace treaties. You only have to look at their wall paintings/sculptures to see the color differences between them and some of their wives and their war captives.

          No one living today is completely one ethnicity. We’re all a mixed bag because of ancient migrations and intermarriage. So “racism” is ridiculous. Culture, though, is still the main sticking point. If you really look at it, everything still boils down to culture and how that influences everyone either for good or ill.

    Happy Saturday everyone. Almost all our leaves have fallen with the exception of one bright and beautiful one with yellow trees just outside the bedroom window.

    Now it’s time to blow leaves off the driveway because when the get wet and compressed it is a mess. Especially in the dark, hard to see the ditches.

    Watching a story on the local CBS affiliate on the Sufi mosque that was attacked in the Sinai yesterday. Despite Egyptian reports that it was ISIS and is attacking their encampments with airstrikes (why not before), despite the local ISIS commander openly saying they were going to eradicate all Sufis in the province, despite ISIS saying they considered the Sufi Moslem heretics, despite survivors saying that the attackers carried ISIS black flags, despite Obama not making a public announcement blaming the attack on conservative/white/Southern/gun-nut/Republicans…the report would not say ‘Moslem’ or ‘terrorists’.

    They went to great lengths to classify them as ‘militants’ without mentioning or discussing religion, not even Moslen at all, just ‘mosque’. As it’s doubtful that a mosque in the middle of the Sinai desert would be packed with visiting Southern Baptists or hosting a Jehovah’s Witness meeting I guess we’re supposed to just assume the mosque was packed with Moslems.

    They also didn’t mention that this was a large and well prepared attack. The report said ‘gunmen’ while papers in the Mideast and Europe are full scope. The attackers used burning cars to block the roads to the mosque while attackers fired RPGs into the mosque then entered and started systematically shooting those inside. As ambulances and police responded another group of attackers ambushed them as the burning cars blocked their way. Yup, sounds like another case of senseless and random gun violence.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
