I noticed that there wasn’t much posted online about a linguistic anthropological topic that is of particular interest to the study; focal vocabularies. These are vocabularies that a particular culture or people have developed in relation to something that is a central focus point or important aspect of their respective livelihood. For instance, “many circumpolar languages have rich focal vocabularies related to snow…[Likewise,] in mountainous areas of Afghanistan, people use many terms for varieties of rocks”.

Purple foods are really really healthy and good for us. “That’s because many purple foods contain anthocyanins, which are red, blue and purple natural pigments. Anthocyanins are healthy because they’re powerful antioxidants and may help boost the immune system, maintain health and prevent disease, said J. Scott Smith, Kansas State University professor of food chemistry.”.
Very excited. I hadn’t changed the oil in my own vehicle for years, but I finally decided to buy the necessary equipment and supplies when I bought my most current car, the ’99 Subaru Outback. I knew that I’d enjoy owning the car for a long time, considering it’s a station wagon, super-reliable, not bad on gas mileage, and a ton of fun to drive.
I literally spent about 10 minutes changing the car’s oil and about two weeks putting it off because I didn’t want to run into unforeseen problems. Yes, it did cost a little bit more than a cheap-o $17.99 job from a corner shop, but now I own the tools to perform the task myself on ANY vehicle, rendering future oil changes cheaper. The sense of accomplishment is pretty great, I must say.
Ingredients (makes 4 servings)
- 2-1/2 slices bacon
- 6 ounces chipped chopped ham, shredded
1/4 onions, chopped
- 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce (such as Heinz® Original BBQ Sauce)
1 tablespoon bottled sweet chili sauce (such as Heinz® Premium Chili Sauce)
NOTE: The times on this recipe are for a much larger sandwich platter. Do yourself a favor, the first time you make it, stick around and watch your sandwiches’ progress.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Allow the bacon to cool, and chop.
- Cook and stir the onion in the bacon grease left in the skillet until onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir in the bacon, chipped ham, barbecue sauce, and chili sauce until the mixture is well combined. Transfer the ham mixture to a large bowl, and stir in the pickle relish and chopped pickle.
- Place about 1/4 cup of ham mixture on a bun, and top with a slice of Cheddar cheese. Close the sandwiches, wrap each in foil, and bake in the preheated oven until hot and the cheese has melted, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot.
This could also be an excellent dish for making on the engine of your car as well!
This is just so sickening to me that we’re getting them conditioned to use technology that’s chiefly obsolete, bad for the environment, and the economy.
