    Taipei, Taiwan's Bustling Lunar(Chinese)New Year Shopping Center-Dihua Street

    in Travel

     


    Dihua Street or Grocery Street is where many residents of Taipei, Taiwan head to for stocking up on food, snacks and treats for the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year. I recently visited the famous shopping market just two days before New Year’s Eve. I was there to shop, sample food, indeed why many people pay a visit and talk to some Taiwanese about why they enjoy Lunar New Year.


    Dihua market, for most of the year is Dihua Street-a center in Taipei for traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, fabrics, incense, and Taiwanese tea processing. First constructed in 1850, it’s original name was Center Street.


    This is the busiest time of year for Dihua street, with extra food stalls and vendors using all kinds of tactics to get your attention. Most of which are pretty friendly.


    Sampling is big here and many people come just to load up on the freebies. If you’re new to the food of Taiwan it’s a great place to learn about some of the traditional snacks and newer items with ingredients that can range from peanuts to dried fish.


    It’s Taiwan, so of course there’s always someone cooking food around the corner.


    The southern portion of Dihua is the oldest street in Taipei, dating back to Dutch rule from 1624-1661.


    In Taiwan many markets were built around temples and Dihua is no exception with worshippers getting in their last wishes for the year, or perhaps a good start to the new year.

    EDL Radio ~ ISIS Threatens Terror in the UK

    in Politics Conservative

    Militants from the terror group, also known as Daesh, identified Britain as its number one terror target in the chilling message. It said that the UK is due the "lion's share" of ISIS's wrath - in revenge for the RAF's bombing campaign in Iraq and Syria. The jihadis are thought to have their sights set on central London, after a recent video highlighted a string of potential targets. 


    (To that, we say.... "BRING IT ON, YOU BASTARDS, just TRY to mess with Britain...")

    Military Monday with USNI Press Author Dwight Hughes – A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY

    in History

     Most Americans, when they think about the Civil War, probably remember the great land battles like Gettysburg and Shiloh, not realizing that there also was a significant maritime conflict as well. From inland waterways to the deep oceans, Union and Confederate naval forces were engaged in a four-year struggle for control of the trade routes to and from North America. One key campaign was the Confederate attempt to interdict key Union maritime activities, particularly whaling ships which supplied important oil products. To accomplish this task, Confederate Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory commissioned and acquired a small number of armed merchant cruisers, mostly from Great Britain. Though few in number, these merchant cruisers harassed Union trade routes across the globe, and required the Union Navy to commit valuable resources to hunt them down. Along the way their captains and crews became legends in the annals of American naval history.


    To learn more about the Confederate commerce raiding campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Dwight Hughes to discuss his new book, A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY.  The book chronicles the voyage of the Confederate merchant cruiser CSS Shenandoah, which in 1864 and 1865, circumnavigated the globe on an epic wartime cruise. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to both gentlemen, in what will be certainly an intriguing hour.

    Tea - Brief History: Great Beverage!

    in Health

    Tea-the second most consumed drink in the world--does not have its origin in Britain, England, France ir Holland. Camellia Sinensis--Tea's official, biological name--is a native of China, found its way to Japan by way of traveling monks and through to India by various other means.


    By the time Europeans encountered this fabulous beverage, it had been in use in Asian countries for untold thousands of years. It was just not called Tea.
