Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day!  And I thank my friend, Art, for the reminder.

Here is an article from TIME that talks about the event.  The story includes a very handy  Pirate Name Generator.

For the rest of the day, you may refer to me as Capt. Angelina Firepants, or just stick with my true pirate name, Anne Bonney.

Recipe for Hard Tack

Mix one teaspoon of salt with one pound of flour.

Add enough water to make a very stiff dough.

Flatten the dough to about 1/2 inch and cut it into about 4 inch circles. Punch holes in each circle with a fork.

Bake in a flat pan at 250 degrees for two or three hours.
If the hard tack should happen to go bad, just remember to choose the lesser of two weevils.

Whose birthday am I celebrating today?

March 8, 2012

Well, mine – or at least my alter ego’s. Anne Bonney, intrepid female pirate, was born this day in 1702, in Ireland. Joining forces with Calico Jack Rackam, they sacked harbors around the Caribbean until Jack was caught and hanged. Anne fared somewhat better and evaded the hangman’s noose.

Anne and Jack are the ones responsible for giving pirates the skull and crossbones flag.

I particularly enjoyed the stories about Anne and Calico Jack as told by George MacDonald Fraser in The Pyrates!
