Isle Royale was given to the United States by the 1783 treaty with Great Britain, but the British remained in control until after the War of 1812, and the Ojibwapeoples considered the island to be their territory. The Ojibwas ceded the island to the U.S. in the 1842 Treaty of La Pointe, with the Grand Portage Bandunaware that neither they nor Isle Royale were in British territory. With the clarification to the Ojibwas of the 1842 Webster–Ashburton Treaty that was signed before the Treaty of La Pointe, the Ojibwas re-affirmed the 1842 Treaty of La Pointe in the 1844 Isle Royale Agreement, with the Grand Portage Band signing the agreement as an addendum to the 1842 treaty----------

-Rennes ([ʁɛn]( listen) French: Rennes, Gallo: Resnn, Breton: Roazhon, Latin: Condate, Civitas Redonum) is a city in the east of Brittany in northwestern France. Rennes is the capital of the region of Brittany, as well as the Ille-et-Vilaine department.

Condate founded by the "Amorican"people (civitas redonas)

Rennes is the administrative capital of the French department Ille-et-Vilaine. Before the French revolution, prior to the integration of the Duchy of Brittanyinto the Kingdom of France, Rennes was the capital of the duchy, with the other historical capitals of Brittany's Ducal period being Nantes and Vannes. It has a long history due to its location at the confluence of two rivers and its proximity to the bordering regions from which arose various challenges to the borders of Brittany.

The eastern Armorican people of Redones founded Condate —an ancient Celtic word meaning confluent— at the confluence of the Ille and Vilaine rivers and made it the capital of a territory that extended to the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel. The name of the city of Redon also reflects that of the Redones. Early in the 1st century BCE, they adopted the Greek and Roman practice of issuing coinage, adapting the widely imitated gold staters of Philip II of Macedon, in the characteristic Celtic coin metal alloy called billion. Without inscriptions, as the Celtic practice was, the Redones coinage features a charioteer whose pony has a human head. Large hoards of their coins were unearthed in the "treasure of Amanlis" found in June 1835 and that of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Lande, discovered in February 1941. The museum at Rennes contains a large representative collection

Revelation 10
King James Version (KJV)
10 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

The name of the Fourteenth Letter (Nun) literally denotes a fish. This gave rise to a variety of related meanings such as to continue, increase, propagate, and sprout. The word Nun is the root of (neen, son) which occurs thrice in Scripture, a,lways in conjunction with another Nun KeyWord (neked, posterity). This pair appears three times translated twice as as "son" (Neen) and "nephew" (Neked) and onece as "son" (neen) and "son's son" (neked). Integration with the Inner Wheel of Isaiah Neen is profoundly integrated with the chapter sequence of Isaiah, where it appears only in Isaiah 14, translated as son. Nun KeyWord Nachal (Heritage) The symbolic meaning of Nun as Son, Progeny, Perpetuity, and Posterity manifests in the Nun KeyWord (Nachal, Inheritance) which the Lord placed in the seventh Nun-verse of the great alphabetic Psalm 119 (vs. 111): Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart. Heir of All Things This meaning of Nun also manifests with perfect clarity in the Book of Hebrews which opens with the proclamation that the Son is the "heir of all things." This is the meaning of (neen, son) as used in Isaiah 14. It both differs from and integrates with the fundamental Beyt KeyWord (ben, son) which reveals the nature of God the Son, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. Nun , in the Hebrew Bible, was a man from the Tribe of Ephraim, grandson of Ammihud, son of Elishama, and father of Joshua.(1 Chronicles 7:26-27) He grew up in and may have lived his entire life in the Israelites' Egyptian captivity, where the Egyptians "made life bitter for them with harsh labor at mortar and bricks and with all sorts of tasks in the field." (Exodus1:14) In Aramaic, "nun" means "fish". Thus the Midrash tells: "[T]he son of him whose name was as the name of a fish would lead them

In Greek, which is the language of the mysteries, the word IRIN [related in some way to INRI from the Crucifixion], we find the word EIRENE, signifying PAIX (peace) and another one the Latin word PAX, formed of the Greek X and P of the chrisme (Chi and Rô).... The chrisme is the great Christian symbol and also the idea of peace found associated with Christ. The word PAX, a great Benedictine word, radiates at the top of the Cross’

All are relevant
The same hidden imaging in this "Crucifixion" is in Da Vinci's "St Ann
with virgin and child" the vulture.
The painting is quite large, larger than 3x5 feet (but I don't
remember exactly how large) and was finished in 1954. The actual cross
is the net of a cube. For his painting, Dali added use of the net of a
tesseract. In viewing the original one is immediately struck by the
simplicity of the landscape, background, and Christ's body contrasted
with the classic realism of Gala/Madonna and the relatively grotesque
detail amplification of Christ's knees and hands.
In the original
painting you can see at least 5 images of Gala in Christ's right knee
and 5 images of Salvador in Christ's left knee.
It would be interesting
to view this under ultraviolet and infrared light to explore what else
Dali may have hidden in this painting. Oddly the only other art I've
seen to take direct inspiration of 'hidden images in knees' is male
erotic Tom of Finland 'biker boy' 1982 where a lower woman's torso is
hidden in right knee; a man's upper torso and phalic image are hidden
in the left

(Reuters)- Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc settled with Freddie Mac a $1.2 billion claim, freeing up millions of dollars which will be available for distribution to the bank's creditors.

Under the settlement, Lehman will make a one-time cash payment of $767 million to Freddie Mac, Lehman said in a court filing on Wednesday.

The dispute stems from two loans extended to Lehman by Freddie Mac in the months before the bank filed for bankruptcy. Lehman was scheduled to repay the loan on September 15, 2008, the day it filed for the biggest-ever bankruptcy.

Lehman had set aside $1.2 billion to cover the claim as a general unsecured claim, but Freddie Mac argued that the claim should get priority status.

A priority claim would have allowed the government-controlled mortgage agency to be paid before several other creditors.

Once Wall Street's fourth-largest investment bank, Lehman's bankruptcy was a major trigger for the 2008 global financial crisis.

Lehman emerged from Chapter 11 in March 2012 under a plan that could eventually return $65 billion to creditors. The company is winding down, a process expected to take a few years.

What you are wondering really occured.
In the painting there is a light blue/green house on fire to the right of the Jesus ,
and two white houses ,one in the shape of steps to the left on fire.

In Dylan's "Tangled Up in Blue" he mentions "Montague St. Delacroix, Louisiana"

Then she opened up a book of poems ( song lyrics )
And handed it to me
Written by an Italian poet
From the fifteenth century
And every one of them words rang true
And glowed like burning coal
Pouring off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you .

( Nostradamus )

I lived with them on Montague Street ( song lyrics)
In a basement down the stairs
(chagall's white step house).

If you check montague st in Delacroix La.
You will see that it is next to Mineola.
There is Mineola bay on the Chain o lakes in Illinois.
The lotus (Lillie's ) covered the chain, Egyptians symbol of 4 elements combining.

The caricature is of mother of my children.

Marc Chagall
French, born Vitebsk, Russia (present-day Belarus), 1887–1985

White Crucifixion, 1938

Oil on canvas
154.6 x 140 cm
(60 7/8 x 55 1/16 in.)

The 1938 painting White Crucifixion represents a critical turning point for the artist Marc Chagall: it was the first of an important series of compositions that feature the image of Christ as a Jewish martyr and dramatically call attention to the persecution and suffering of European Jews in the 1930s.
In White Crucifixion, his first and largest work on the subject, Chagall stressed the Jewish identity of Jesus in several ways: he replaced his traditional loincloth with a prayer shawl, his crown of thorns with a headcloth, and the mourning angels that customarily surround him with three biblical patriarchs and a matriarch, clad in traditional Jewish garments. At either side of the cross, Chagall illustrated the devastation of pogroms: On the left, a village is pillaged and burned, forcing refugees to flee by boat and the three bearded figures below them—one of whom clutches the Torah— to escape on foot. On the right, a synagogue and its Torah ark go up in flames, while below a mother comforts her child. By linking the martyred Jesus with the persecuted Jews and the Crucifixion with contemporary events, Chagall’s painting passionately identifies the Nazis with Christ’s tormentors and warns of the moral implications of their actions.

3 is the symbol for heaven , 4 is the symbol for earth ,
Between 3 and 4 is a special place .
Numerical Meaning
One implies "unity (e.g. Deut 6:4 Eph 4:5,)

Among other definitions, two can imply "witness."

The implication of three is "divine perfection" or "holiness."(e.g.
(Matt 12:40).

Examples include:
•Three major feasts appear in Jewish Tradition (Exod 23:14-19)
•Prayer was urged three times daily (see Dan 6:10 and Ps 55:17)
•Three-year-old animals were prized for special sacrifices (Gen 15:9)
•In Christianity, there are three persons in the Trinity: Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit

Four signifies "the world," preeminently in the Book of Revelation.
•Four corners of the earth (Rev 7:1)
•Construction of the altar: 4 corners, 4 pillars, etc.(see Exo 27:1-8
and Exo 27:16)

Both Hebrew and Christian sources believe six indicates
"imperfection," "man", or "evil." For Christianity, this occurs
preeminently in the Book of Revelation. A secular source,
Britannica, reports that it means "perfection" in religion.

Both religions believe that seven implies "totality of perfection,"
"completeness."

Examples:
•There are seven days in a week
•In the Book of Revelation, there are multiple examples, including 7
churches, 7 bowls, 7 seals, 7 trumpets, and 7 spirits.

Eight means a "victory".

Examples include:
•8 people on Noah's Ark (see Gen 7:7 and 2 Peter 2:5)
•Circumcision on 8th day (Gen 17:12)

Twelve implies "governmental perfection.
Examples include:
•The twelve tribes of Israel ◦There are multiple examples in Ezekiel
regarding construction in the heavenly Jerusalem for the twelve tribes,
including 12 foundations, 12 pearly gates(Ezek 48:30-35), and 12 angels.

•Twelve Apostles

1,000 signifies "immensity" or "fullness of quantity", preeminently in
the Book of Revelation

( all of the following must be considered as fiction)

The feast of Saint Gabriel was included for the first time in the General Roman Calendar in 1921, for celebration on March 24. In 1969 it was transferred to 29 September for celebration together with St. Michael and St. Raphael. The Church of England has also adopted the 29 September date, known as Michaelmas.

The Eastern Orthodox Church and those Eastern Catholic Churches which follow the Byzantine Rite celebrate his feast day on 8 November (for those churches that follow the traditional Julian Calendar, 8 November currently falls on 21 November of the modern Gregorian Calendar, a difference of 13 days). Eastern Orthodox commemorate him, not only on his November feast, but also on two other days: 26 March is the "Synaxis of the Archangel Gabriel" and celebrates his role in the Annunciation. 13 July is also known as the "Synaxis of the Archangel Gabriel", and celebrates all the appearances and miracles attributed to Gabriel throughout history. The feast was first established on Mount Athos when, in the 9th century, during the reign of Emperor Basil II and the Empress Constantina Porphyrogenitus and while Nicholas Chrysoverges wasPatriarch of Constantinople, the Archangel appeared in a cell nearKaryes, where he wrote with his finger on a stone tablet the hymn to the Theotokos

In times of unusual danger, when the malice of the devil seems triumphant, St. Michael will come to our aid.

Sepember 29thThis is the feast day of St. Michael and all the Angels. It is the most ancient of all the angel festivals. The Anglican church celebrates all angels, both name and unnamed on one day. Roman and Orthodox Churches separate them into two categories (with the unnamed angels having their feast day on October 2nd).

In the Roman Catholic Church, the solemnity of Mary as Mother of God (Theotokos) is celebrated on 1 January, on the same day as the Octave of Christmas. Her maternity was celebrated on 11 October in pre-1970 versions of the General Roman Calendar, which some traditional Catholics still observe.

Three is a symbol of Heaven
Number Three (3) is a symbol of intuition, magic, creative power and joy that it brings benefit from them. It also represents the time, consisting of three components: the already known and experienced of the known past, I lived called the present and the unknown and uncertain, called the Future. In this way, it symbolizes the transformation of the what is known to identify what is new and unknown, that is creative forces lurking in all of us.
Is considered a number of excellent, covering the whole thing as a result of that is the sum of the numbers 1 and 2 It symbolizes the divine trio of faiths: Christian – God Father, Son and Holy Spirit of God, Egyptian – Osiris, Isis, Horus, the Babylonian – Ea, Marduk, Gibil; Hindu – The Brahma-creator (Trimurti), Vishnu-life, Siwa-death; Greek – Zeus with a triple thunderbolt, Pluto (Hades), the three-headed dog Cerberus from the trident of Poseidon.
This number also means light, sun and fire. Thanks for linking in the characteristics of the first two numbers three represents consciousness, harmony, balance and growth. Compounds with the number three is: a beginning, middle and end; heaven, earth and hell, faith, hope and love.
Between 3 and 4 is where "Jesus" dwells .

Four is symbol of Earth

The ancients believed the World to be composed of 4 basic elements – Fire, Water, Air and Earth. These were considered the critical energy forces that sustained life. All of these elements are integral parts of matter or the physical universe, and the human body is a physical creation existing in the material realm. Therefore, the human beings were seen to be made of and governed by the four elements. Maintaining a balance between these elements was advocated to ensure physical as well as psychological well-being.

The black and white halves of the Yin-Yang symbol are similar to the two sides of a coin. They are different, and distinct, yet one could not exist without the other. The circle itself - which contains these two halves - is like the metal (silver, gold or copper) of the coin. It is what the two sides have in common - what makes them "the same."
When we flip a coin, we will - in terms of the imprints - always get either "heads" or "tails," one answer or the other. Yet in terms of the essence of the coin (the metal upon which the "heads" and "tails" symbols are imprinted)

the Ojibwe culture includes a third gender. Ojibwe Two-Spirit women take on men’s roles, classified as either "Iron Woman" or "Half Sky". Generally two-spirit men practiced Shamanism and it was taboo for women to take on this role, but a two-spirit following this path was called an Iron Woman. The Half Sky two-spirit would be physically good at a man’s trade (like hunting). Also, there is an instance when a wife becomes a widow and takes on her husband’s manly deeds; this woman is called a "Woman Covered All Over".

Zechariah 6:13
King James Version (KJV)
13 Even he shall build the temple of the Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

Eze (pronounced [ézè]) is an Igbo word which means King, with further
implied meaning of "chieftain" of the tribe or kingdom. Such words as
Igwe and Obi plus others are used by Igbo people as titles of respect
and homage to the Eze. Igwe is derived from the Igbo word Igwekala or
Eluigwekala, "the sky or heaven above the sky is higher or bigger than
land", implying that the Eze is a higher servant of the people. Obi is
normally the centre building for receiving visitors in an Igbo leader's
or man's homestead; and when used as a title of respect for the Eze,
Obi implies: "the one who sits in the throne house or heart of the
Kingdom."In Igbo tradition and culture, the Eze is normally an absolute
Monarch advised by a council of chiefs or elders whom he appoints based
on their good standing within the community. A popular saying in Igbo
is "Igbo enwe eze", which translates to "the Igbo have no king." This
popular saying does not, however, capture the complexity of Igbo
societies as portrayed in many centuries ofanthropological,
sociological and political research

Èze has been described as an “eagle's nest” because of its
location overlooking a high cliff 427 metres (1,401 ft) above sea level
on the French Mediterranean. It's so high that the light ochre church
within (Notre Dame de l’Assomption built in 1764) can be seen from
afar. An Egyptian cross inside the church suggests the village's
ancient roots, when the Phoenicians erected a temple there to honour
the goddess Isis.Traditionally, the territory of the Principality of
Monaco was considered to begin in the Èze village (outskirts of Nice),
running along the Mediterranean coast to Menton on the present Italian

A structural keel is a beam around which the hull of a ship is built.
The keel runs in the middle of the ship, from the bow to thestern, and
serves as a basic foundation or spine of the structure, providing the
major source of structural strength of the hull. The keel is generally
the first part of a ship's hull to be constructed, and laying the keel,
or placing the keel in the cradle in which the ship will be built, is
often a momentous event in a ship's construction — so much so that the
event is often marked with a ceremony, and the term lay the keel has
entered the language as a phrase meaning the beginning of any

In the city that calls itself the "Home of the Blues," the Checkerboard is among the most storied of the bars that have provided a place for young artists to shine in Chicago, which launched the 31st annual Blues Festival on Friday.

"If it wasn't for blues clubs, you wouldn't be talking to me now," said revered guitarist Buddy Guy, 77, who opened the Checkerboard in 1972 with current owner L.C. Thurman.

"I went in these blues clubs, somebody found out I could play a little bit, and they say,'bring him back in here'...," Guy told Reuters. "I opened up the Checkerboard to help keep that alive."

Guy, who in 1981 jammed at the Checkerboard with the Rolling Stones along with Waters and Junior Wells, later parted ways with Thurman and in 1989 opened his own venue, where he still makes regular appearances.

In its heyday, the Checkerboard also saw the likes of Chuck Berry and Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant.

For most of its existence, the club sat on a tough stretch of 43rd Street.

HOW IT WORKS
Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves. There are such unfortunates. They are not at fault; they seem to have been born that way. They are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which demands rigorous honesty. Their chances are less than average. There are those, too, who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest.
Our stories disclose in a general way what we used to be like, what happened, and what we are like now. If you have decided you want what we have and are willing to go to any length to get it-then you are ready to take certain steps.
At some of these we balked. We thought we could find an easier, softer way. But we could not. With all the earnestness at our command, we beg of you to be fearless and thorough from the very start. Some of us have tried to hold on to our old ideas and the result was nil until we let go absolutely.
Remember that we deal with alcohol-cunning, baffling,
1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol - that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
