OMG! I have been practicing my Spanish with this senorita at Captain D’s

OMG!   I have been practicing my Spanish with this senorita at Captain D’s


Police hunt for mother, who ran $300 million meth operation.


Sooner or later you will find a replacement for a bad spouse, but it’s awfully durn hard to find a good herd dog.

Well, at least that is what I thought.  Nowadays in the Highlands, if you don’t celebrate Hitler’s birthday, the pickings are slim.  If you don’t like meth, you’uns better just be reaching for a mail order bride catalogue from La Republica de Colombia.   The last time that I was even in a dating relationship (which was shortly after Charlemagne was crowned Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire)  the college accounting professor turned out to be a meth and crack addict.  

At least over the past five years, when I had money for fish and chips, I could fantasize at Captain D’s Seafood Restaurant.  There, the lovely Mexican Indian senorita, supervising the service counter, enjoyed talking in Spanish and about the civilizations of Mexico with me.   I wondered how she could afford the fancy silver and turquoise jewelry from Taxco, Mexico . . .  now we know.  See the video below.

Now for the good news!   Two weeks ago, a couple who have been subscribers to the People of One Fire since Charlemagne was crowned, stopped by to see me after attending a family reunion near Etowah Mounds.    You know how I have complained in the past about the incessant bomb explosions and assault rifle fire coming from just over the county line?   My visitors got to hear a bomb go off.  Now there are three believers.

NO!   The Sephardic Princess has never returned to the cheese counter at Walmart.

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.



    maybe your explosions are black powder cannon fire. there are people who do reenactments for both civil war and the rendezvous camp outs. the black powder is ethical for cannon, rifle, pistol, etc, (maybe not pipe bombs).

    ola sailor!

    • No they were practicing building booby traps (IED’s) and blowing up buildings. They won’t get to actualize their ambitions.

The Information World is changing!

People of One Fire needs your help to evolve with it.

We are now celebrating the 11th year of the People of One Fire. In that time, we have seen a radical change in the way people receive information. The magazine industry has almost died. Printed newspapers are on life support. Ezines, such as POOF, replaced printed books as the primary means to present new knowledge. Now the media is shifting to videos, animated films of ancient towns, Youtube and three dimensional holograph images.

During the past six years, a privately owned business has generously subsidized my research as I virtually traveled along the coast lines and rivers of the Southeast. That will end in December 2017. I desperately need to find a means to keep our research self-supporting with advertising from a broader range of viewers. Creation of animated architectural history films for POOF and a People of One Fire Youtube Channel appears to be the way. To do this I will need to acquire state-of-art software and video hardware, which I can not afford with my very limited income. Several of you know personally that I live a very modest lifestyle. If you can help with this endeavor, it will be greatly appreciated.

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
