history of actual Bai Mei or Bak Mei:







https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bak_Mei

Quote:
The leader of the Shaolin Temple, Hong Mei (“Red Eyebrows”) died, leaving his legacy to Chi Thien Su, also known as Jee Sin, one of the five Great Kung Fu Masters. According to some stories another such master, Chu Long Tuyen, the monk who would later become Bak Mei, did not accept this. He believed the Ming had become corrupt and Chi Thien Su would still serve them; Bak Mei would rather serve the foreign Qing Dynasty. Then came the attack against the Shaolin Temple at Quanzhou in Fujian province in 1647. Some sources indicate that this temple was actually in Henan, or that the invading forces recruited help from Tibetan warriors in the attack. The Five Elders survived, however, and soon Chi Thien Su would found a second Shaolin Temple at Nine Lotus Mountain, also in Fujian Province. The Five Kung Fu Masters survived the first destruction of the Shaolin Temple by Qing Imperial forces and sought shelter in another temple, Fujian Temple, but the other monks were massacred. After Bak Mei refused to provide his real name for fear of retribution (against his family and students - if they survived), the Abbott of the temple christened the monk “Bak Mei”

Low here is 39. I'm surrounded by palm trees and coral reefs... This ain't natural.

There was snow (albeit mixed with rain) in FLORIDA yesterday!

"Normal" will have no meaning in climate going forward.

Normal simply means average when it comes to climate. It always has been rarely dead average. Maybe when there was no water on Earth is was.

I have one of Ryan Callahan's game jerseys, identical to this one.

I've been wearing it quite a bit in this cold weather!

Do you just want to celebrate another day of living, do you want to celebrate another day of life?

NHL's #1 team, the Tampa Bay Lightning appear to have slacked off for last night's game and consequently got spanked 5-1 By Calgary!

LOL! The President and I are apparently like two peas in a pod! We both apparently believe that exercise is superfluous, and we have only have so much energy to expend in our lifetimes, and should not waste it on exercise!

I finally figured out after all these years how to spell and what it means when my grandfather often called me (in German) when I was a kid!

He called me a LAUSBUB. It sounded like he was saying lausboop.

It means RASCAL.

FERNSEH means TV, BTW)

I remember when we were kids and had to go along for department store (like Marshall Fields) shopping, we'd sometimes get something by the 1/4 lb. from the candy counter. I'd go for the malted milk balls, whilst my bro' went for the chocolate covered raisins.

I invented cinnamon cola years ago. I should have acted on in and cashed in.
