BIOGRAPHY: James Adair (circa 1709-1783) was a native of County Antrim, Ireland, who came to North America, and became a trader with the Native Americans of the southern states. He resided in their country forty years, beginning in 1735, and was almost entirely cut off from the outside world, and from the year 1744 he resided chiefly among the Chickasaw. In 1751, he moved to Laurens County, South Carolina. He published a very elaborate work on their manners, endeavouring to prove them descended from the Jews. It is entitled The History of the American-Indians, particularly those Nations adjoining the Mississippi, East and West Florida, South Carolina, &c. London, 4to. 1775; but the work has been distrusted, although Dr. Boudinot, in his Star in the West, has adopted its views.

Hope everyone has Happy Holidays – despite the moody/cold/wet weather that may come our way before Christmas.
I know many have been dealing with issues that life seems to ‘surprise us’ with; but you have to remember, there are people who care about you, and will listen if you want/need to talk.
Yesterday I spent trying to get my hobby room in order – but I never realized exactly how much yarn, string, floss that I have collected — it would fill a small room! (so it nearly does.)
Now, that I have that ‘stash’ somewhat sorted – what do I do with the rest of my treasures? Old school yearbooks, newspaper clippings, ticket stubs, old grocery list — outdated addresses/phone numbers on scraps of paper — You get the general idea…
Yes, CHRISTMAS is quickly approaching.
No, we have not completed our shopping list , yet.
Dave and I may end up creating gifts — at least a few. Others will be added as we can purchase them.
With the economy on the skids — I am sure everyone is trying to find ways to save money while not losing the true spirit of Christmas giving.
One long-tried tip? Trade days, flea markets and yard sales…
Not your style of gift source…well, give a try — you will never know what unique gift items can be found, and most very reasonable in cost.
The best quote I have heard lately — “Rare books, make for rare gifts”. So, most rare books won’t be found in a new bookstore.
Just a bit of a ramble for this first Friday of 2009.
Anyway, here’s hoping you have the best holidays possible. Drop a note my way if you get a chance during this hectic season.
