“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog.

*******************************************************************

Unfortunately, we had to drop the 3rd cousin, Lady L, off to her own devices.

But you know the conversation between Ron and I marched on!

In part II we are talking about:

  • Lucky black-eyed peas and links to Rosh Hashanah, African cowpeas, live-stock, enslaved people and the Confederacy
  • “Throw away” foods during slavery 
  • What the hell?  Ham hocks and ox tail, formerly throw away foods, cost waaaaaay too much these days.
  • Indigenous people working together to farm for food and for healing.
  • When Funeral Homes change into family homes or, even worse, restaurants
  • From cess pools to a waterfalls
  • “Hamlets” in Georgia? Really?

Of course, this conversation was inspired by my post on New Year’s traditions in the South.
