Actually they did think the ad was too controversial, promoting "relgious doctrine" I believe was their reason, but don't feel too bad, for the 2010 Superbowl CBS rejected an ad promoting a gay dating website as too controversial too. wink.gif

Shadows, have you read any books by Robert Monroe? Journeys Out Of The Body is one. Very good. Not a shaman per se, but developed a way to have an OBE at will, with some training and wrote about his experiences while out of body. He eventually started an institute in Charlottesville VA to teach his methods. Very interesting guy.

Hope they let you choose what kind of noise maker, wouldn't that be fun? I know they'll designate something specific and approved most likely, but if you could put a big AAOOOGA horn on it that would be fun.

Wow, a holiday weekend and you can't even get to be notorious. Actually an un-wanted list can be taken two ways; not on the wanted list or just plain unwanted. Did they clarify? Maybe you should take the muffler off your scooter so it wakes up the neighbors every time you ride, or wear a fez and ride around in circles like the Shriners.

Once when we were kids, my older brother and I rode our bikes (bicycles) out to watch a local parade go by. My brother had an odd bike our father had built for him which he had painted white with red stripes, like a barber's pole. Don't ask me why, he's just goofy. Anyway, as the parade went by there was a space between the floats. My brother rode his bike into it and proceeded down the street waving to the crowd as if he were part of the parade. Not a big deal, it was a small parade in a suburb. It was a hoot though, although I freaked out at the time and kept trying to get him to come back out, thinking he'd get into trouble. Maybe you could do something like that. You'd probably make both lists ...wanted and unwanted! My brother got away with it I think because his bike looked as though it belonged in the parade!

Hope you're having a great holiday weekend then Camac, lots of parties and beer I suppose? Or are you just riding the bike through the neighborhood with the gang of Senior Scooties?

I think attitudes are changing, but are they changing fast enough? I don't think we understand our biosphere well enough to know where the tipping point is, which makes us both too carefree and too panic ridden at the same time. The bottom line is the same, stop doing what we're doing, but its for our own sake not the planet's. It would help if we'd stop lying to ourselves, both in terms of justifying the continuity of destructive activities and proffering pseudo-noble ideas like "saving the planet", a phrase that reaks of denial, for how can a humanity whose activities are responsible for causing the damage about which they subsequently lament, save the object of their carelessness? The two attitudes cannot coexist, and this duplicity does little to solve the problem for it deflates commitment and perpetuates fence-sitting. Is it an emergency yet? That's the question to ask, for when its considered of paramount importance to live in such a way that we don't destroy that which we depend on for life, then that will be the only turning point that will evoke sufficient emotion and commitment to the task at hand. You can't want things to change and stay the same simultaneously. Hard choices are afoot and superficial token gestures yield superficial effects.

Regarding human stupidities like war, I have no prognosis. When humans tire of thinking of war as a solution and begin to think of it as untenable as a problem solving method and as an abomination in its own right, they will no longer choose it. History tends to convince us of an unlikelihood of such a stance, but remoteness is not impossibility. What's assinine to me is that still mankind destroys other humans over religious ideas, something they cannot prove or even know but simply believe. Primitive is the consciousness that considers the reality of human life of lesser importance than a speculative cosmology.

My mistake I meant to say Brythonic Celt. Hey I'm an old fart and the minds not what it use to be. rolleyes.gif angel_not.gif

Oh I understand, I really do. I'm pushing...well, I won't say, but definitely been drafted by Nature to serve within the territory of Old Fartdom. My youth has gone bye-bye and I've acquired a deep affection for sleep. Silly me, I've been studying another language (Welsh) for a number of years and forget as much vocabulary as I learn sometimes. So "I meant to says" are becomming more commonplace for me too. Sigh.

One problem Camac, Brythonic is not Gaelic. Brythonic is one of the two branches of Celtic languages and also the name given to a language no one knows much about but which they suspect preceded the Brythonic branch languages, which are Welsh, Breton and Cornish. The other branch is the Goidelic which includes Gaelic, Scots Gaelic and Manx. The two branches are distinct but share some gramatical similarities such as lenition, or initial consonant mutation and I believe VSO word order, which Welsh has. Many people (including the site admin people here apparantly) think all the Celtic languages are Gaelic languages. That is not so.

No problem friend. Besides the Welsh are commonly overlooked especially in the States. The Irish and Scots fever is so strong, not that there's a problem with that, I have Scottish ancestry too! Be well sir, and thanks for your information, its a fascinating subject, no? Wish we knew more about it. Maybe more archeological sites will be discovered and shed some light sometime in the future. At least the languages are still around.

Hiya Camac!! Good to see you...well like this anyway.

Yes, that's what I was saying too, that's why I brought up the Welsh poets Taliesin and Aneirin who lived in Scotland. One can find in placenames in Scotland names of Brythonic origin as well, but don't ask me what they are...forgot. Ravages of age.

Be well my Cannuck friend. Don't spend all your loonies in one place!

Because the Irish resisted foreign occupation far longer than other Celtic peoples and never became "Anglicized" even after being conquered by the English, they have retained far more of their Celtic identity than other peoples with a Celtic heritage.

Celtic identity is a dubious term, yet that said, I think you'd offend quite a few Welsh with your statement, maybe Scots too. Neither are English nor consider themselves to today. The Welsh have retained their language, a hallmark of culture if there ever was one, since the 6th century and retained it throughout all the conquests you mentioned to the present. If there were not Brythonic, proto-Welsh or whatever you want to call it during the Roman occupation, and had it not survived, there would be no Welsh today. There are between 500,000 and 700,000 Welsh speakers today. Welsh was spoken throughout much of England and north into Scotland. Taliesin and Aneirin, 6th century Welsh poets, both lived in Scotland. Llywarch Hen was another Middle Welsh poet and king of a land in England not Wales. Resisting occupation is one thing, resisting cultural integration and destruction is another, and it can be argued that the Welsh have done better than either Irish or Scots in that regard, particularly with regard to language preservation. That is about all that's left in practical terms of a Celtic identity.

The Angles and Saxons were invaders, not indigenous to Britain any more than the Norse invaders who eventually settled in NE England were. They came in the 5th century and Celtic or proto Celtic languages were already being spoken. The Romans left Britain in 410 when the Emperor Honorious told the Britons they could no longer depend on Roman protection. Since the Romans had been fighting the Celts since they came, even built Hadiran's wall to keep invading Pictish in Scotland, I think we can assume Celts were well established before Angles, Saxons and Norse came almost a century later. The Norman conquest wasn't completed until 1066. I don't see how any of these invaders could be considered any more Insular Celts than the Romans could. They did not speak a Celtic tongue, nor did they ever acquire one. Anglo-Saxon or Old English is of the Germanic branch not the Celtic. English acquired many words from Old Norse in about the 7th or 8th centuries as well as grammatical changes, but had no significant influence from the Celtic tongues, which might suggest a certain lack of involvement with them, and certainly not an acquisition of their culture.

When I was a kid my mother used to make gulash. I don't know how authentic it was but it was easy and cheap. She'd take hamburger in a frying pan, add quartered tomatoes and onions and cook that until done, then add cooked elbow macaroni. It was very good, easy to make and cheap. Spice it as you like it.

I like Loreena McKennit and Maddy Prior but I'd also add Sandy Denny (!!). Group? Well, not strictly Celtic, but the Incredible String Band and Pentangle, Solas, Karen Casey and her band, the Chieftans of course, Mary Jane Lammond to name a few. Some singers who sing in Welsh too: Julie Murphy and Sion James.

There was an article in a recent National Geographic about the Hebrides, with a great photo of Fingal's Cave.

I think of the Highlands. I'm a sucker for mountain terrain generally and the Highlands are gorgeous. I can almost hear Celtic music too. I also think of Edinburgh castle!
