In good company

It's always a delight to see customers so happy to be in the company of their new Kenny Croes Dummy Store figure. The little guy has been named "Nathan Little". The tall guy on the right is Franklin. He mentioned that he works with kids of various and blended ethnicity and he wanted a figure that might represent a kid of mixed heritage. So Nathan's skin color was darkened slightly to reflect that. I love the fact that ventriloquism is used to teach youngsters.

    That's just kind o' wonderful, Kenny. :-)

  2. the Shuraydas of Tubna, Cheap Jordan Shoes, who by the 1860s could field 500 armed men (and women) in the al-Kura region further north. Both families had served as local tax collectors for various distant Ottoman governors in Damascus in the 19th century. By and large, shaykhs like the Furayhats and Shuraydas did not always feel the need to amass large personal estates for themselves at this time. Control over economic surplus was what mattered, not titular rights to ownership. Since shqykhs were able to use their position to expropriate tribute payments in the form of grain and animals from their protegees, they saw no need to rely solely upon personal agricultural exploitation for survival. In turn, these settled shaykhs were still sometimes subject to extortions from even more powerful bedouin tribes like the 'Adwan and Bam Sakhr.
