We, me, have a very short termed heritage memory

Think I'm going to try and change that for my great great grand children, even if it just starts with the little knowledge I know of my ancestors. Myom and dad have passed 10!years ago so no help there. There is always time to start recording what you remember. How cool would it be if my GGGrandpa would have made a few notes along his life journey, really expressed himself and I got to read them 100 years later
It just fits in with my overall thesis that through the study of history we not only learn more about ourselves but we can also get a greater understanding for the motives of our neighbors. Details, even small details like the origin of the unique food, the Navajo Taco, can give the researcher just a wee bit more understanding of the Navajo people themselves as well as the region they are living in... maybe even serve as an article of diplomacy.

Let us not forget, after WWI at Armistice Day the Americans, French, Italians and Germans had a lighthearted competition to see whom had the best cheese (Im not making this up) in order to ease the obvious diplomatic tensions. France won.

Wow... sorry I really went there.

You are more likely to have a threesome with members of the Japanese women's curling team whilst spinning a plate on your head than you are likely to screw up a batch of JAOM.

This is my thread and I say it's ok, so there.

Learning from our history is the only way to ensure civilization progresses. That's why is sad to see the selective use of history by many governments to justify their ulterior motives.

I'm sorry to hear of the current plight of the native Indians in the US. Seems to be case around the world from the aborigines in Australia to native Indians in Taiwan.
