Friday Faves, Issue #9

This edition of the Friday Faves brought to you by the letter “G.”

Destination of the Week:   The Orange Free State.  Saw this place on a world map from the 1980’s.  It was in southern Africa.  The string of learning that ensued about colonialism in Africa, the Boers, and the role of the Dutch East India Company was swift and enjoyable. One more reason to visit South Africa if you get the chance.

Quote of the Week: “You have the freedom to be yourself, your true self, here and now, and nothing can stand in your way”.” –  Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Band of the Week:  A band that has morphed throughout the last forty years, no doubt.  But with (at least) one constant, the band leader Arturo Sandoval.  Great interview here to get to know him, the sample of samples of his sound, with his mentor, Dizzy Gillespie, and something more contemporary.

Meal of the Week:  “I’ll die before I give you that BBQ sauce recipe.”  This makes me hungry.  And itching to smoke some beef ribs or brisket. Might happen this weekend.

Website of the Week:  And it follows from the Meal of the Week, straight up good meat makes good eats. Find it here.

There ya have it, peeps.  Your comments are always welcome.  And you can follow more of the muse via twitter.  My handle is @jhludlum ~

Enjoy the weekend!
