This is a new blog, so get ready to laugh while I cuss mi computadora a little bit. I'm still trying to figure blogging out, so bear with me, or better yet go elsewhere like PureFlorida, my brother's site. Just to get started, I plan to provide information on a unique group of settlers to Florida known as the Minorcans. They arrived in New Symrna Florida in the late 1700's and remain in the St.Augustine, Florida area today. The St.Augustine Diocese Cathedral archives here chronicle their lives, their births and their deaths. While many occupiers took control of St.Augustine, the Minorcans stayed on and preserved a way of life that was different from the Anglo settlements we read about in the Anglo-centric historical accounts of North American history. Like many other poor subsistence cultures, Minorcans perservered by dedication to family values and resourcefulness. I hope to relate some of their stories of survival, their culture and history on this site. Of course, since I am a Minorcan, you will be subjected to me too, sorry about that. So, for now, what to Datil peppers, pilau (pronounced PER-low) and smoked mullet have in common? They are all central to our culture and part of this blog's future posts. Ciao.

Welcome to the Blogosphere. Came here by way of your brother, the Cracker.

I am looking forward to reading all about the Minorcan culture. You know, of course, how unusual it is for a group to retain their cultural elements over such a span of time, as immigrants. Almost unheard of.

I'm a late-in-life anthropology student, so I eat this kind of stuff up. I've already heard about the Datils, and look forward to a pilau recipe.

Again, welcome!

Great fish pict. I'm going to show my hub when he gets in tonight. He's not into blogging but he'll stop at the computer long enough to read a blog if there's a fish in a photo ;)
I'm here via Cracker's site also. Good luck getting your site up and running!

By the way, I've lived in Florida my whole life, and I've never heard of the Minorcan culture. Really look forward to what I learn in the process!

Welcome to blogging; I also came here via Floridacracker. I'm a native Minnesotan, but I spent some time at my grandparents' place on the St. Johns River when I was growing up, and my uncle even knew what a Minorcan was. Looking forward to reading more!

By the way, you have good taste in templates. You're the only other blog I've seen (besides my own) that chose Minima Blue!

yo, Cracker, I'm back up. Seems the IP wants me pay more than once. What jerks, I'm not eating this stuff. Fish23, thanks! Boy am I fighting this program. I'll live.
zanne, blogosheria is a weird place, can you believe PureFlorida considers ya'll friends? Sooo, cool. Deb, that river is beautiful. It's a part of our history. It' a blood vessel for Florida, and it's hemorrageing, don't turn your back on it. Laura, the fish is from a fish house where I take my students to, ah, learn. They do. Dread, that fish is very dead, so what does it matter? I mean, what fish wants to be an education prop? Rex daughter, I sure hope you're right. What a boring world otherwise. To all, and any I missed, wow, I'm impressed. I may have to turn on this 1999 retro 98 machine more than once a month. Oh, well, back to pilau and datil pepper relish, the winter is coming.
