By

UPDATE!!!!   Because the BLUE JAY CANYON Association filed a complaint with the county, not wanting the faire to be held in The Blue Jay Village, the faire has been moved to BEHIND Jensens--a little street. You'll see signs.

Don't miss the RENAISSANCE FAIRE & SWASHBUCKLER'S FESTIVAL this weekend in Blue Jay Village (Lake Arrowhead). ADMISSION is FREE!  A few of the things you won't want to miss are:

  • SWORDFIGHTING (the kids will love this)
  • LIVE PIRATE MUSIC & SEA SHANTIES (have no idea what that is)
  • BELLY DANCING (come on guys, you know you wanna see that)
  • FACE PAINTING (kids and adults like this)
  • CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW w/HIS Treasure Chest's of GOLD. (we can all use some gold!)

This FESTIVAL takes place in the parking lot where the old "Ice Castle" used to be, across from McDonalds. It also happens to be where WINDERMERE FINE PROPERTIES is located (remember I work there!). We'll have a booth and I'll be hanging out Saturaday from 2:00 to 4:00. Stop and say hello!

Check out BLUE JAY VILLAGE  for more info on times.  MAP TO GET HERE.

Kat,

Sounds like FUN! Thought I would help you out with the "Sea Shanties" thing!

Sea shanties (singular "shanty", also spelled "chantey"; derived from the French word "chanter", 'to sing') were shipboard working songs. Shanties flourished from at least the 15th century through the days of steam ships in the first half of the 20th century. Most surviving shanties date from the 19th and, less commonly, 18th centuries.

In the days when human muscles were the only power source available aboard ship, sea shanties served a practical purpose: the rhythm of the song served to synchronize the movements of the sailors as they toiled at repetitive tasks. They also served a social purpose: singing, and listening to song, is pleasant; it alleviates boredom, and lightens the burden of hard work, of which there was no shortage on long voyages.

Most shanties are "call and response" songs, with one voice (the shantyman) singing the line and the chorus of sailors bellowing the response (compare military cadence calls). For example, the shanty "Boney":

Shantyman: Boney was a warrior,
All: Way, hey, ya!
Shantyman: A warrior and a terrier,
All: Jean-François!

( Catchy little tune, don't you think)?

Working it as a short-drag or sheet chantey, hands on the line would synchronize their pulls with the last syllable of each response.

Musically, shanties seem to reflect a variety of sources. "Spanish Ladies" is a perfect galliard (popular around 1600), songs like "Fire Marengo" look like West African work-songs, others are adapted "folk" songs or 19th century polkas and waltzes. Lyrically, like the blues, shanties often exhibit a string of stock verses without much explicit, continuous theme.

Hope to get by and see all of the excitement!

Michelle:  You are a walking blog of shanty info.  Shanties..in any form, now, do not sound so appealing to me. LOL

I am showing property in the morning, so if you're up here, go ahead with the shanty work.  Hee hee

Hope you have a super weekend.

Why, I'm going to have to have a word with them! LOL

• fuddy-duddy •

Printable Version Pronunciation: -dee--dee Hear it!

Part of Speech: Noun

Meaning: A bland, old-fashioned, usually middle-aged person who poses no threat and avoids excitement or risk; a stick-in-the-mud old fogey or, as a fuddy-duddy himself might put it: a milksop, a milquetoast.

Notes: Fuddy-duddy is a bit outdated and is more likely to be used by fuddy-duddies themselves than a hip scenester. Notice that you always replace the Y with an I before the plural -ES. Don't reverse engineer the plural and spell it in the singular fuddie-duddie; that might seem a bit harebrained.

In Play: Fuddy-duddies tend to be soft-spoken older males: "I love to go down to the park in the evening and stroll among the old fuddy-duddies playing checkers." (Everybody needs an occasional break from the excitement.) But this word can also apply to women: "My mom is such a fuddy-duddy she wants me to keep my collar bones covered!"

Word History: Today's Good Word is one of those nonsense words that flummox our British cousins (click here for Prince Charles's opinion). Ignore dictionaries that try to relate it to Scots English fuddy "animal tail, dock-tailed animal"; that explanation doesn't fly, float, or play. The word nearest today's Good Word is dud and the suffix -y is a marker of 'motherese', the language we speak to children. A duddy then would be a dud that only appeals to babies.

LOL. That is funny. David (my honey) told me I should write a message to the paper... IF I do, I'll use the above meaning.
