it was a long ceremony that felt more like a celebration than a mourning especial to westerners and I don't think Nelson would have been offended and would be amused buy the controversy

He is probably smiling at your constant mis-spelling of his
name. Or not.

I mean, once is excusable, but to do so repeatedly......

It was good to share in your culture briefly that day....

and I finally understand the meaning of 'doubloon'!

You could say the penny dropped, lol

I have been hunting high and low for that doubloon to no avail.....

the "social and pleasure clubs" were the backbone of a strong culture that took care of their own and still do, they are most visible on Fat Tuesday at daybreak on Tchoupitoulas st. in elaborate "Mardi Gras Indian" costumes, the tradition is attributed to homage being paid to Native Americans who helped escaped slaves. it also became a competition between social clubs in liue of the knife fight

http://www.neworleansonline.com/neworleans/mu...

one band that comes to mind is Dirty Dozen, of course Tuxedo as you see in the link

the term Krewe is reserved to private Carnival clubs that that put on the parades and balls during Carnival season and Mardi Gras day, all out of their own pockets, they even rent the street and pay for police security incurred from the festivities, bands are refereed to as bands, I am sure there are some exceptions

once someone moves to the Big Easy they become "local" quickly, Pais will attest to this

once a local leaves the Crescent City they are never home until they return, how beautiful to bring New Orleans home with him to his former home for his final rest, I know it was the only way to have people even coming close understand all the things he had told them

Good Morning LIM,

and thanks so much for this, I was totally oblivious to the history...a little wiser now.
Tuxedo could quite easily have been the band who accompanied the funeral to the
nearby town of Porthmadog fulfilling the deceased wishes to the end of his journey.
I like to think we made the band as much at home as we would have been in their
keeping...well, I certainly dancing along with them, lol. and I would do so again.
I won't rest until I find that doubloon!

You can check out of the Crescent City but you can never leave.........

Good Morning Everyone,

a blustery (and do I see snow) day....putting up the tree today,
a small'ish one in the window, after all, it's nearly Christmas.

Hope everyone is keeping warm and looking after themselves this
cold weather. Big freeze on the way apparently.

Re your post of yesterday, El..
Yeah, plenty 'L's' in that:)

Not to mention the name El:)

VERY wild here too today,
I'm disappointed I can't figure this 'dose' out..
I felt fine yesterday, at at shops etc trying
To do cards & Christmas bits that fell behind."
This morning I got up and didn't feel a bit well.
I'm on a course of steroids ..could be that as there hard
on the system.
I just dono' hope it passes by soon,
I feel more insecure at this age out these things.

El, Christmas trees are very pricey here now..
I swapped my thinking on it last year, saw a beautiful
big
Ornament of a group of carol singers dressed in
Victorian costume, all sparkly and beautiful.

Replaced them with a Christmas tree..
Will do likewise this year, won't be here anyway
Christmas Eve or Christmas Day..
Ringing the changes.

Good luck with your tree, El.
How do the cats react:)

All the 'L's clickety click......it's okay it's the strain, lol

Your ornament sounds lovely, very festive.

The tree hasn't yet materialised, we got caught up in
something else, to be honest I usually wait until Christmas
Eve, and may just do that this year.'Blue' is the bugbear
with baubles, and Clancy isn't even allowed in the lounge,
he is like a naughty teen...:)

Grace, take heart, those steroids take a while to 'kick-in'
and could it be that you did too much too soon yesterday,
plenty of time to get yourself rested before Christmas itself.

I see it's the first part of the grand final tonight (X-Factor)
I will watching along with you....I missed a few as you know,
so am looking forward to seeing if those I 'fancied' got through.
You take care.....
