Witness The Determination And Persistence Of A People Preserving A Symbol Of Strength that does not involve ritualistic animal sacrifice –

Begin by reading about the UFFINGTON HORSE. A three thousand year old CHALK HORSE that withstood the storms of time and stands today as a testament to the tenacity of the people who maintained it through all those years.

– lines are being drawn –

It’s time to retire hardball. Everybody plays it–and all it amounts to–at the end of the day–all things being equal in a perfect world, without rushing to judgment–that it is what it is–been there done that–deja vu all over again–on so many different levels. When the other shoe drops, where the sun doesn’t shine, that’s the bottom line. If it walks like a duck, wears lipstick and if the shoe fits, then the moment of truth has arrived. The fat lady hasn’t sung yet, so it appears to be DOA–dead on arrival.

The Rise of The Green Lairds

Climate-savvy millionaires are buying up huge areas of the Scottish Highlands and transforming how it is managed. These “green lairds,” many of them from overseas, are rekindling debates about who owns Scotland’s land and what they’re doing with it.

The main road into Kildrummy, a 5,500-acre estate on the edge of the Scottish Highlands, runs past a ruined castle and across a scaffold-clad bridge to an unloved building that the new American owners, Camille and Christopher Bently, call the manor. It was built in 1901 to accommodate shooting parties held by Colonel James “Soapy” Ogston, who made his fortune from a soap factory in nearby Aberdeen.

The Bentlys are restoring the manor as their home. Beyond an entrance hall bristling with deer antlers is a gloomy interior with a grand stairway and extravagantly flowered wallpaper, time-dimmed and peeling. Camille Bently brings out the estate’s old game books, handwritten records of the thousands of grouse, deer, pheasant and duck that were once shot at Kildrummy each year. The game books also note the hunters’ names and the conditions for each day’s shoot. Camille reads one entry – “Birds did not want to fly today” – and snorts: “No shit.”

Camille and Christopher, a multimillionaire property developer from California, bought Kildrummy in 2020 for £11 million, or about $15 million. The estate has dense timber forests, wind-raked moors, a botanical garden and that atmospheric castle. It also has a history that the Bentlys, both avid conservationists, are determined to forget.

Wealthy people have long come to Kildrummy to shoot grouse and other game, an elite pastime that involves intense management of the land. Heather-clad moors are partially burned to improve breeding conditions for the grouse, whose predators are trapped, poisoned and killed. In 2015, a Kildrummy gamekeeper was jailed for four months after he was secretly filmed battering a rare hawk to death.

The Bentlys have banned trapping and sport shooting at Kildrummy and aim to turn the estate into a semi-wilderness where dwindling species are revived and protected. “There’s been too long a history of abuse on this land,” Christopher says. “It’s just got to stop.”

A perfect baked cereal dish for a breakfast buffet. Peanut butter and orange marmalade atop a brown sugar-sweetened cinnamon-spiced stone ground Scottish oatmeal cooked with apple cider! For added protein we add a little textured vegetable protein. A spray of fresh blueberries completes this Breakfast Masterpiece!


SWEET CHILI. That’s what Steve always says he wants. No heat except lots of black pepper. He’s that kind of guy – black pepper with everything and lots of it!

Oatmeal never tasted so good! Make ahead to refrigerate to use throughout the week or serve on a breakfast buffet. Sometimes we serve it for supper: Place a square on a plate topped with a little margarine and smoky walnut crumble. Microwave just till hot and experience heaven on a plate!


When there’s not one thread or color that dominates the fabric we call it a plaid! The Animal-Free Chef feels free to extend that designation to food. There’s no one flavor that dominates the dip. Enjoy this Scottish plaid!

Hi Sharon Lee,

My name is Adrian Morgan. We are related by DNA and also we share a common pair of ancestors from England – James Davies (1812-1873) and his wife Maria Frances Hazell (1812-1874). They had various offspring, including my 2nd great grandfather, John Hazell Davies, and his brother Samuel M. Davies to whom you are descended through your grandfather James Frederick Davies Jr. (1899 – 1964).

But I can tell you something about how your Davies ancestors came to be in the United States. John Hazell Davies (my direct ancestor) was the oldest of six siblings who survived into adulthood. The family lived in Horfield, a part of the port city of Bristol in the southwest of England. Their father James was a carpenter. His brother Samuel (your direct ancestor) was born on 16th July, 1843 and was baptised a month later. On 23rd October 1864 he married Emily Eliza Mayhew, who was two years older than he. She had been born in St Pauls, adjoining the south end of Horfield, and her father Evan was, like Samuel’s father, a carpenter.

In September 1871, Emily’s father died and though I cannot find records of Samuel’s occupation from the 1871 census, in 1872, at the port in Bristol, Samuel and Emily boarded a steamship, the S.S. Arragar. The ship arrived at the port of New York on 24th May 1872. The ship’s manifest states that with them were their three young children, James, aged 4, Mary Ann aged two and a half, and Richard, aged 1.

Two years later, they were living in Massachusetts. In 1872, Eliza had given birth to a baby girl called Maria Frances. She had been named after Samuel’s mother, Maria Frances Hazell. The girl did not survive, and died the following year. A fifth child would be born in 1874, named after Samuel, but he died before the year was out.

Samuel was working in Leeds, a village attached to Northampton, in Hampshire County, Massachusetts. The Mill River cut through a valley and to create power for industries from Williamsburg to Northampton, a dam had been built on the Mill River, close to Williamsburg. The design for the dam had been produced by one of the consortium of business owners who had financed its construction. The man had no training in civil engineering or construction. In May, severe storms caused torrential rain, and on the morning of Saturday 16th May, 1874, the dam burst. 139 people were killed in a space of minutes. According to the memorial at Leeds (pictured below) fifty one people in the village were killed. Samuel was one of those who drowned. He was thirty years old.

Eliza and the three children she had brought with her from Bristol had not been in the path of the torrent. Six years after the Mill River Disaster, she remarried, and became Mrs Brewster. Her Bristol-born children grew up. They did not attain great ages. James Frederick died in 1924, aged 56, Mary Ann died in 1912, aged 42, and Richard died in 1937, aged 66. Eliza herself died in Northampton, Mass. on 3rd November 1896, aged 55.

The Mill River Disaster, as it became known, was the first major dam disaster in North America.

James Frederick Senior, who had been a child on the boat from Bristol, married Annie M. Bullman, herself a migrant (she was born in Ireland in 1871). They had four children, and your grandfather James Frederick Junior, was the oldest of the children.

I hope this information will be of some use to you. I recommend that you get in touch with a woman who made the tree from which entry I copied below, who has spent years tracing the links between her family members in America with those in the United States. This is her page on your grandfather, with a photo of him…

I hope this information has been helpful. By the way, I too was artistic – I worked as a graphic designer and illustrator. I also love animals and cooking.

If you have any questions, please get in touch. Wishing you all the best

“A touch of Dutch” my mother said to me of Nanny Kay, my mother’s mother, Katherine Clara Dow Davidson. I often wondered what the majority or the other part was. Sometimes the majority doesn’t matter when it comes to DNA.

After reading about the DUTCH recently, I determined that that’s all I needed along with everything else – the other more prominent nationalities percentage-wise in my heritage portfolio – to develop the FIVE PRINCIPLES TO A BETTER LIFE. It’s like an overlay and a foundation at once upon which everything else grew.

Sometimes it doesn’t take much to make all the flowers bloom.

Thank you Nanny Kay for loving the animals as your friends.

Who was Nanny Kay? Tall, smarter than most her age – skipped three grades in early school – stubborn, lenient, organized, tenacious in a settled way, could and would talk to anybody and everybody unless you did her wrong. Remember this is a TOUCH OF DUTCH as my mother said. Did with less and still walked worked acted with dignity and was the one everybody loved and respected.

When she drove down from New Hampshire arriving in the early morning and I awoke to her laughter with Mom, sitting at the dining table, I knew it was going to be a good day.

Wonder what the DUTCH will do with that?


THE HAGUE: The Hague is a city on the North Sea coast of the western Netherlands. Its Gothic-style Binnenhof (or Inner Court) complex is the seat of the Dutch parliament, and 16th-century Noordeinde Palace is the king’s workplace. The city is also home to the U.N.’s International Court of Justice, headquartered in the Peace Palace, and the International Criminal Court. ― Google





The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is the primary judicial branch of the United Nations. Situated in the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands, the court settles legal disputes submitted to it by states and provides advisory opinions on legal questions submitted to it by duly authorized international branches, agencies, and the UN General Assembly.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that has its headquarters in The Hague in the Netherlands. The ICC has the jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes.

The International Court of Justice is an integral part of the United Nations and acts as its primary judicial branch. In fact, the United Nations Security Council enforces the rulings and judgements passed by this court.

The International Criminal Court is an independent organisation and is not a part of the United Nations. However, they do work alongside each other and the United Nations Security Council can refer to situations involving international crimes to the ICC.

Membership in the ICJ consists of all UNITED NATION member States. It’s automatic and an extension of the UNITED NATIONS.

Membership in the ICC IS OPTIONAL. It is done through APPLICATION and is independent of the United Nations.

NOTE: I wonder if the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court endorse/support the death penalty?

Nanny Kay said to me, and the others at varying times, “Your mother will never tell you this, but you have Indian blood in you”.

We all believed her; somehow we knew anyway. But with the Indians, if you don’t know your tribe then you have no pride, thus are discounted. I never cared about being recognized, knowing that the half breed and partial breeds among Canadians and Americans is higher than one might think. Being a thoroughbred is important to their race, which puts me at odds with their ideology from the foundation up.

I identify with a part of their spirituality without knowing what it is. I figured that’s the way it’s supposed to be. When landing in the Pacific Northwest long ago and frequenting the library, I saw a book called GOD IS RED. I was intrigued, since I was searching for something unknown. How could God only be red?

I was disappointed to discover the degree of torture their history involved and the respect they claim to have for the animals they kill.

Unless it’s a painless mercy killing, there is no respect in the enslavement, torture and slaughter of any animal for any other reason.

If they respect the animal so much, then why aren’t they leading the pack in animal rights and animal-free cooking and eating? They’re not still living in tents are they?

For me, Indians stay too much in the past. Wearing those dead bird feathers as a ceremonial symbol of their sordid violent history is no different than wearing furs. Somebody died a horrific death for it. How do you respect the animals as you’re skinning them?

aside: Not many women are Founding Members back in 1944 – not that long ago. How come so many white faces, when now they seek a pure race, otherwise you don’t belong?



Do tribal nations have an embassy in Washington DC? At the embassy opening in 2009, President Jefferson Keel said, “For the first time since settlement, tribal nations will have a permanent home in Washington, DC where they can more effectively assert their sovereign status and facilitate a much stronger nation-to-nation relationship with the federal government.”

NCAI History

The Founding Meeting of NCAI:
The 1944 Constitutional Convention – Denver, 1944

The Seven Grandfathers Teachings that correspond to 7 spirit animals vary between nations, but they all share the concept of having a moral respect for all living things. The Seven Grandfathers Teachings are commonly viewed as lessons needed for a community to survive, to live a good life, and to respect the Creator, the earth, and one another.”

“The buffalo, for example, represents respect because it gives every part of itself to sustain a human being’s life. This doesn’t mean the buffalo holds less value, it means it respects the balance of life and understands its place.”

‘Let’s make something clear here, the buffalo doesn’t GIVE every part of itself to sustain a human’s life. The HUMAN TAKES IT.


I checked my spirit animal and I thought I was supposed to check the boxes that applied, not just one. So the first result wasn’t accurate – WOLF.

I took the test again and followed the directions accurately and my spirit animal was – RAVEN.

This test is kind of like a horoscope that never changes. And any of them could apply to anyone.

It implies that all people fall into one of seven categories. Or like the horoscope based on date of birth, all people fall into one of twelve categories.

Superstitions run deep in all cultures. It’s how humans explain to themselves that which they don’t understand but know exists.

Pharrell Williams drew some heat Wednesday (June 4) for wearing a Native American headdress on the cover of Elle UK, leading the singer to apologize for what many considered cultural appropriation of a sacred tradition — despite the fact that he is part Native American.

“I respect and honor every kind of race, background and culture,” he said via a rep. “I am genuinely sorry.”

I say to the Indians what I say to the Blacks, “get over yourselves. You have all the flaws you accuse others of having. Even worse – because you refuse to change in yourselves what you hate in others”.

There’s nothing sacred about anybody’s culture.



There are 574 federally recognized Indian Nations (variously called tribes, nations, bands, pueblos, communities and native villages) in the United States.

We all have a place on this beautiful planet. Learning to live together, rather than under threats of harm if one group doesn’t do what the other group demands of them, opens the collective mind of all the inhabitants to multitudinous ways of progressing onto a future where we all survive and thrive.

  • Restricting speech restricts free thought and free action.
  • Restricting speech, restricts ideas, thus enslaves the individual and the group. Enslavement leads to torture and torture leads to slaughter if left unchecked.
  • It is up to us to change ourselves through self-awareness and self-education. It is not our job to change anybody else through harmful and hurtful coercion or punishing tactics.
  • Be the example of peace, not the cause of chaos. You don’t have to be a part of anybody else’s solution, when you direct your own life in your own way, that raises you up, while respecting the lives, not necessarily the ways, of others.
