How did Blue
Jordan get its name?
For me, history gets more inter-
esting the closer to home it gets.
Consider some local place names,
for example. Just east of Frostproof
is Blue Jordan Forest. With each
passing year fewer people remem-
ber that this relatively recent resi-

dential area was named after the
barely noticeable slough that flows
between Lake Arbuckle and Lake
Walk in Water and crosses under
Hwy 630 shortly east of Walk in
Water Road. Today, hardly anyone
knows that there is also a Brown
Jordan. Before she passed away
some years ago, Gertrude Richards
(Moser) told me that Brown Jor-
dan is the slough that seeps out of
the bayhead near the new State
Forest office just east of Wardlaw
Road, and it flows under Hwy 630
to Reedy Lake. (By the way, Jordan
was, and still is, pronounced "Jer-
dun" by Frostproof natives.)
My question for you is, "What is
a Jordan?" No one I have spoken
with seems to know. Whoever
named it, didn't name it "Blue Jor-
dan Creek"; they just named it
"Blue Jordan" as though a "Jor-
dan" was a type of waterway. Does
anyone out there know anything
about the origin of the names
"Blue Jordan" and "Brown Jor-
dan"? I hope so, because it would
be a shame to lose the story behind
these two interesting names.
I looked on-line and found
some clues. One old meaning of
the Arabic word "Jordan" was
"watering place", and a more
modern (14th century AD)
Hebrew definition was "urinal".
Perhaps these two tiny waterways
were local watering holes for cattle
or horses (or people for that mat-
ter) and one may have had clear
(blue) water and the other had tan-
nic (brown) water. Maybe these
watering places had sulfur-
smelling water and they named
them "jordans" to be a humorous
way to complain about their smell
by comparing them to a urinal. Per-
haps they just borrowed Jordan
from the biblical Jordan River. But,
if so, why? And why didn't they also
name other nearby creeks "Jor-
dans", for example Reedy Creek
and Livingston Creek were not
named Reedy Jordan and Liv-
Good clues, however, come
from local people, not from far off
sources. So, if you remember your
Granny or your Great Uncle talking
about Blue Jordan or Brown Jor-
dan, please search your memory
and share what you remember.

Canned soup no comparison to homemade
When the temperature gets a lit-
tle cooler, my family usually starts
asking when I will make some
chicken soup. This makes me
smile because this family favorite is
Homemade chicken soup is an
amazing thing. It is filled with nutri-
ents and natural substances that
help keep you healthy. And the dif-
ference between homemade and
canned soups is something that
words cannot explain you have
to taste it for yourself.
One of the best home remedies
for cold and flu is-one of the oldest
- good old chicken soup. But if you
are eating canned soup in the hope
of fighting off a cold, you are proba-
bly not getting all the health bene-
fits that come with real, home-
made chicken soup.
A study conducted at the Uni-
versity of Nebraska found that-
homemade chicken soup (with
lots of chicken, onions, garlic; cel-
ery and parsley) counters the
effects of immune-system cells
called neutrophils, which cause
inflammation in the nose,, throat
and lungs. Cold symptoms.such as
a runny nose are caused b3 this
immune response, rather than the

icines that ease cold and flu symp-

ral antibiotic. Onions also contain a

Chicken is a good source of pro-

strong and fight infection. It also
contains tryptophan also found
in turkey which.might make it
easier to sleep.
Vegetables such as parsnips
and carrots contain vitamins, anti-
oxidants your body needs to fight
The broth in chicken soup aids
in hydration. You need lots of fluids
to help your body fight the flu.
The warm vapors from the
soup helps to shrink sinus passage-
ways, thus reducing pressure, con-
gestion and pain.
Chicken soup contains impor-
tant vitamins and minerals that
help your body gain strength and
aid in the healing process.
It is my opinion that the trick to
making good chicken soup is using
Holiday eating doesn't
One thing I have learned, espe-
cially around the holidays, is that
the process of losing body clutter is
a journey ... not a destination. It's
also a process that doesn't go on
holiday when we do. We are either
on task orwe're not. Being "off" so
to speak, is an invitation to trouble.

When we set out to do some-
thing that's new to us, it's very rare
that we ever have the foresight
and/or skill set to accomplish it
without looking outside ourselves
for help. This is how we get the
education we need to make
informed decisions on what to do.
.This is also how we develop skills
we may not have had previously.
But there is something we bring
to the table -- we either have it or
we have a lack of it. And that is dis-
cipline. The D word. There's a
word we all love to hate. Discipline
is one of those things we all bristle
against and yet it is one very neces-
sary component to dealing with
enough chicken. Depending on
your own preferences and dietary
concerns, you can use a whole
chicken or just the white meat.
Here's my own recipe for
homemade chicken soup.
4 medium onions
4 cloves garlic, crushed
4 cups chopped celery
2 cups chopped parsnips
S/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
/2 cup chopped fresh sage
/4 cup chopped fresh thyme
2 sprigs fresh Rosemary, leaves
5 pounds chicken
S6-8 cups water or chicken broth
(just enough to cover the chicken
in the pot)
/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot, saut6 onions, gar-
lic, celery, parsley, sage, thyme and
Rosemary in (EVOO) until translu-
cent. Add parsnips and chicken.
Add enough liquid water or
chicken broth to cover chicken
completely. Bring liquid to a boil,
and then reduce heat to simmer.
Simmer for four hours or until
chicken is falling off the bone.
Using a colander to catch the veg-
etables and chicken, strain the
stock into another pan. Allow the
stock to cool. When it is cool, skim
off the fat that rises to the top. (If
you have a cat or dog, you can mix
the chicken fat in their food -
Unless of course the veterinarian
has put the pet on a restricted diet.)
Remove the chicken from the
strained' mixture. Discard the
cooked vegetables. Most of the
good nutrition has cooked out ol
them and is in the stock. What you
are discarding is just fiber. When it
is cool enough to handle, bone the
chicken, cut into small pieces and
add to the stock.
In a small saucepan, heat just
enough of the stock with meat for
the number of desired servings. Eat
as is, or add noodles or vegetables

I prefer to add chopped carrots,
parsnips, onions, celery and pars-
