For a limited time

by Janet Spencer After Spanish explorers established regular trade routes with the Americas, a new industry was born: Pirating. Come along with Tidbits as we sail the high seas! • Pirating reached its height in the years between 1650 and 1730. Pirate ships didn’t roam around hoping to chance upon a victim; they patrolled known shipping routes. During this time, many governments (particularly England) supported piracy, encouraging it as a cheap way to get expensive goods into their country. Piracy became so prevalent that seafaring trade nearly came to a complete halt. At this point governments began working against the plunder, tracking down pirates and hanging them in public. The last pirate of this era ever hanged in England was strung up in 1840, and in 1862 the last one was hung in America. • In the mid-1600s, there were about 50,000 British sailors making an honest living on the sea, and probably somewhere between 1,000 and 5,000 British pirates making a dishonest living at the same time. During this period, about 80 pirates served on each pirate ship. The career of a pirate generally lasted only a few years or so before they were drowned, killed or jailed. Although some made a fortune and retired, it was more common for the ones who made money to squander it in short order, necessitating another trip.

• The image of the typical pirate that’s been passed down through history is partly true and partly false. Pirates often wore a scarf tied around their head to keep their hair out of their face and to prevent sweat from running into their eyes. They frequently went barefoot which gave them better traction on slippery decks. Pirates wore earrings because they thought it would improve their vision. (Acupuncturists say this isn’t far from the truth.) Burying their treasure is not something that happened often, although there are a few cases on record. Leaving a treasure behind left it vulnerable. Most often plunder was carried to the nearest port and sold. Likewise, walking the plank was a rare occurrence. In fact, there are only two pirates known to have used that method. One was Major Stede Bonnet, who is credited with inventing it, and the other was a Dane called Captain Derdrake. More commonly, men were simply thrown overboard. • Contrary to popular belief, a pirate ship tended to be a fairly democratic workplace. A charter establishing ship rules would be drawn up at the start of each voyage with each sailor contributing to the list and expected to stick to it. Disability pensions were awarded for pirates wounded in battle. Usually, the captain was elected by secret ballot and could be voted out of office. Likewise, ships’ officers were often elected democratically. Many pirate captains preferred to win their battles with a show of force rather than bloodthirsty slaughter. Booty was generally divided fairly, with the captain receiving a share and a half; officers receiving a share and a quarter; and crew getting one share each. Nobody on the pirate ship got paid anything at all unless they captured something of value. Most ships carried musicians on board to provide entertainment.

TOOLS 4 LIFE BY DR. JIM COYLE Principles, Priorities & Practices

Life is like music. You have high notes & you have low notes. Put the right notes together & you have a chord. Life is in harmony when we play the right notes. These three notes (principles, priorities & practices) are a harmonizing chord that resonates direction and purpose in life. Principles are a core foundation for our belief, our behavior, & our reasoning. Priorities are the things that are regarded and/or treated as more important than others. Practices are the actual application of the principles and priorities. So the journey goes from our heart to our head to our hands. If we can play these three notes at the same time we will make beautiful music. www.pastoralcarecentercr.com

What did the pirate say when he crashed his ship upon the iceberg??? Shiver me timbers! A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counseling came up. "Oh! We’ll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship," the wife explained. "He was a communications major in college, and I majored in theater arts. He communicates really well, and I just act like I'm listening.

• In the late 1600s, when most of humanity was still illiterate, ships flew flags with pictures on them indicating their identity and intention. Flags might depict an hourglass (indicating time running out for surrender), or a sword (indicating willingness to fight), or a skull and crossbones, which was by far the most popular design. The color of a flag also sent messages: A black flag meant the pirates would give quarter, and would spare the lives of the captured crew if the treasure was handed over without a fight. If the victims refused to lay down their weapons, a red flag (preferably dipped in blood) would be run up. If a red flag was flying, it meant no quarter would be given and the crew could expect to die. Seeing the sight of a red flag with skull and crossbones was often all it took to convince the victims to give up and hand all their goods over. After all, the cargo on board usually didn’t even belong to them. A white flag indicated surrender. • The French phrase ‘joli rouge’ means ‘pretty red’ which is thought to be the reason the pirate flag is called the Jolly Roger. • Cannon shot was carefully aimed to destroy the sails and masts of the ships being captured without damaging the ship itself. Pirates needed to immobilize the ship but did not want to destroy it. Treasure didn’t do much good if it was sitting on the bottom of the ocean, and the boat itself was a prize worth keeping. Cannonballs were often made imperfectly on purpose because they would make more noise in flight if they were not perfectly round, and noisy cannonballs were more intimidating than silent cannonballs. • The fierce Gujarati pirates made captured merchants swallow an emetic called tamarindi mixed with salt sea water which would cause them to vomit, throwing up any gemstones they may have swallowed prior to being caught. th

• The word ‘pirate’ comes from the Greek ‘peiran’ meaning ‘to attack.’ • The word ‘careen’ comes from the French word ‘carene’ meaning the keel of a ship. Boats that collected barnacles and seaweed moved sluggishly in the water so they needed to be cleaned regularly, especially if they were pirate ships that needed to outmaneuver their victims. The boat would be tilted on its side to be scraped, repaired, and re-caulked. ‘Careening’ has now come to mean lurching or swerving while in motion. • Coins could once be cut into pieces to make change. A dollar coin could be broken into eight bits. Two bits equaled a quarter of a dollar. That’s how pirates got pieces of eight and England got the halfpenny and the farthing, which was originally a ‘fourthings’ or a fourth of a penny.

• In the 1700s, an American ship called the Nancy was suspected of pirating and of running Britain’s blockade of France. Cornered in the Caribbean, the captain of the Nancy tossed incriminating logbooks and papers into the sea just before being captured. The captain and crew of the Nancy were taken to Britain to stand trial. However, without the ship’s papers, there was no evidence. Just then a second British ship sailed into port, bringing the Nancy’s papers. They had found the ship’s papers in the belly of a shark they caught off Haiti. The captain of the Nancy was convicted and hung. The papers were placed in a museum.

● On June 28, 1928, a 26-year-old Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five fellow jazz instrumentalists record a song called “West End Blues.” The technology didn’t allow for playback, so when Armstrong and his Hot Five ended their session, they hadn’t even heard the recording that is recognized as a critical influence, even on rock ‘n’ roll. ● On June 30, 1936, Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone With the Wind” is published.

A diet study has revealed some promising news for those who are at “high vascular risk,” meaning they have a greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease due to high blood pressure, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease or smoking. Spanish scientists found that a Mediterranean diet can benefit cognitive function -- the ability to process thoughts -- more so than a plain low-fat diet. The participants (average age 69) were assigned different diets for six years. One, a Mediterranean diet, included extra-virgin olive oil and mixed nuts. The results for those on that diet were “statistically significant.” It’s thought that the diet not only reduced cognitive impairment, but also slowed its progression to dementia. Additionally, heart attack, stroke and related deaths were down by 30 percent. The key ingredient: olive oil. Apparently, a chemical in olive oil (polyphenol) clears plaque buildup from the brain seen in Alzheimer’s disease. The Mayo Clinic likes the Mediterranean diet, too. Its website cites research showing that the diet was associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular mortality, cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. What does the Mediterranean diet consist of? A lot of vegetables. Lots and lots of vegetables. Specifically: Plant-based foods such as vegetables and fruits -- nine servings a day Grains, rice, pasta and no-salt nuts Whole-grain bread dipped in olive oil Virgin or extra-virgin olive or canola oil instead of butter No salt -- instead use herbs and spices Red meat no more than a few times a month Fish and poultry at least twice a week Fatty fish, such as mackerel, tuna and salmon, high in omega-3. Go online for recipes or check your library for Mediterranean diet cookbooks. Ask if your doctor thinks this kind of diet would be appropriate for you.

ANNE BONNY & MARY READ

December 22– January 19

A chance meeting results in an interesting exchange. Don’t believe everything you hear, Capricorn. A standoff at work is a real eye-opener.

January 20– February 18

You’ve got the upper hand this week, Aquarius. Use it to your advantage. A personal issue comes to a head for a friend. Be there for them.

February 19– March 20

Money matters take precedence this week. Review your budget with care, Pisces. There are ways to cut back. A mentor makes a generous offer.

March 21– April 19

A project grows. Plan accordingly, Aries, or prepare for less than stellar results. Youngsters bring a breath of fresh air to a special occasion. Enjoy!

April 20– May 20

Summer calls for sun in the fun. Take a break from the action, Taurus, and you will return with a fresh perspective and more energy to tackle a nagging problem.

May 21– June 21 Oops, Gemini. An argument at home spirals out of control due to a crass remark. It’s your turn to play peacemaker. A report receives rave reviews.

June 22– July 22

Concerns grow over a relative’s need for independence. Don’t add to the fodder until you have your facts straight, Cancer. There is more to the situation than you realize.

July 23– August 22 Big ideas call for big support, Leo. You may have to scale back on an idea in order to bring it to light. A mix-up in communication ends in laughter.

August 23– September 22 Gather the troops, Virgo. A home improvement project looms. Romance burns bright. Perhaps it’s time for a getaway, or the very least, a date.

September 23– October 22

Don’t underestimate the resourcefulness of a young friend, Libra. If you need help, say so and they will provide. A long-held opinion changes.

October 23– November 21

Making up is not always as hard as they say it is. Give that loved one a call and do your best to set things right. You may soon need their help, Scorpio.

November 22– December 21

If you can dream it, you can do it, Sagittarius. Nothing is beyond your reach this week. Invitations arrive by the dozen. Say yes to the best and toss the rest.

• Anne married James Bonny, and they moved to a pirate’s hold-out in the Bahamas where Anne became involved in the lives of the pirates. When the Governor of the Bahamas offered money in exchange for information about the pirates, James Bonny spilled the beans, much to the wrath of Anne, who subsequently divorced him. Not long afterwards, she fell in love with a dashing young pirate named Captain Jack Rackham. • Anne wanted to travel with Captain Rackham as he plundered the seas, but having a woman on board a ship was problematical. She started to disguise herself as a man, serving alongside the other sailors on board Rackham’s sloop called the Vanity. • In the meantime, Mary Read was born in England around 1690. When she was still an infant, her father left on a sea voyage never to return, leaving her mother destitute. Her mother decided to travel to London to beg for financial support from her mother-in-law. Knowing that the woman disliked little girls, she dressed Mary like a boy. The ploy worked, and Mary spent the rest of her childhood pretending to be a boy, even after her grandmother died.

• Mary Read found that life was easier for a man than it was for a woman, so she continued to masquerade as a man even as an adult. She became a professional soldier, and fell in love with another soldier. When she revealed her secret to him, they were married and settled down to a normal husband-and-wife existence as innkeepers. • When her husband died, Mary found herself destitute. She disguised herself as a man, and got a job as a sailor aboard a ship headed to the Caribbean. When the ship was overtaken by Captain Jack Rackham, she joined Rackham’s crew aboard the Vanity. • It wasn’t long before Mary Read and Anne Bonny— both serving on the same ship, both disguised as men— discovered each other’s secret. They became best of friends and served side-by-side for the next several years. • In 1720, the Vanity was anchored off Jamaica. The men were all quite drunk. Suddenly a British navy sloop hove into view, and the Vanity was under attack. The drunken soldiers cowered below, leaving Mary and Anne to fight the invaders on their own. The women yelled at their mates to “come up, you cowards, and fight like men,” to no avail. They were overtaken, and the entire crew was taken to Jamaica for trial. • Captain Jack and his crew were tried on November 16, 1720, and sentenced to hang. Anne was allowed to visit him before his execution, and her scathing rebuke lives on in history: “Had you fought like a man, you need not have been hanged like a dog!” • Anne and Mary were tried and found guilty. But at their sentencing, when the judge asked if they had anything to say, they both revealed themselves to be pregnant. Since British law forbade killing an unborn child, their sentences were stayed temporarily. • Mary is said to have died of a fever in prison in 1721, before the birth of her child. Other reports say she feigned death and was sneaked out of the prison under a shroud. • No record of Anne’s execution has ever been found. Some say that her wealthy father bought her release after the birth of her child and she settled down to a quiet family life on a small Caribbean island.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It was American industrialist Henry Ford who made the following sage observation: "Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right." ● It took Leonardo da Vinci four years to complete his iconic painting the "Mona Lisa." ●If you're planning a trip to the United Kingdom this summer, you might want to add a side trip to Llanfair in Wales. The town's Welsh name is llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantsiliogogogoch, which means, roughly, "Saint Mary's Church in a hollow of white hazel, close to a whirlpool and Saint Tysilo's Church and near a red cave." The sign at the railway station that has the town's name is 20 feet long.

● Before 1948 on the island of Bermuda, cars were forbidden. Thought for the Day: "The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it." -- Oscar Wilde (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

• The first voyage by the Clermont was met by the public with suspicion. Many referred to the boat as “Fulton’s Folly” due to its unusually long length and the smoke and fire associated with the vessel’s newfangled steam engine. Many thought it would blow up or sink on its first voyage; they were wrong! In fact, because Fulton wisely paid attention to passenger comfort, the Clermont became a very profitable vessel for transporting passengers to destinations on the Hudson River.
