Thief knot

The thief knot resembles the reef knot except that the free, or bitter ends are on opposite sides. It is said that sailors would secure their belongings in a ditty bag using the thief knot with the ends hidden. If another sailor went through the bag, the odds were high the thief would tie the bag back using the more common reef knot, revealing the tampering, hence the name, it is difficult to tie by mistake, unlike the granny knot. The thief knot is much less secure than the insecure reef knot, it unties itself. The thief or bag knot is called bread bag knot, it appears like the reef knot, but there is one real and scarcely evident difference. It does not consist of two half knots. There is a legend that sailors tie clothesbags, bread bags with this knot and that thieves always retie them with reef knots and so are detected, it is a pleasing story. However, if I have met this knot in practical use, I have neither recognized it nor paid penalty for my failure to do so. List of binding knots List of knots The Reef Knot Family

Congo Square (album)

Congo Square is the thirteenth studio album by American singer and songwriter Teena Marie. Released in the United States on June 9, 2009, it would be her only album for the revived Stax label and the final album released before her death in late December 2010; the album features collaborations with Teena Marie's daughter Alia Rose—who records under the name of Rose LeBeau—and rapper MC Lyte, as well as Faith Evans, George Duke and Shirley Murdock. The album title references Congo Square, in the Tremé in New Orleans, an area in which, during times of slavery, slaves were "allowed to dance and sing in the wardrobe of their mother country on Sundays." Teena Marie said of the album: "I've been through quite a few trials and tribulations over the last two years. I felt like God was putting his arms around me. I started thinking about the music I grew up on --; each song I was coming up with began to sound like the style of some favorite artist of mine from the past... Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye, Billie Holliday, the old Chicago soul of The Emotions and the new Chicago vibe of Kanye West...

Ice Cube's bumpin' of course, Rick James. It's all in there." Teena Marie expressed her appreciation for Faith Evans, saying, "I've always loved Faith and her vocal style. She reminds me of me, her correlation with Biggie -- having a career with him and without him -- reminds me of Rick. I feel. Of the younger ladies, she's the one I love most." All songs written except where noted.
