Re: Cracker

Hi Michelle,
I appreciate your blog entry about Florida Crackers.
Believe me, it takes a lot more to be a Cracker besides being born in Florida.
Did you know that William Shakespeare coined the term "Crackers", describing Celtic people and their sense of humor? Hence the term 'wise-cracking'.
It is a way of life, a culture that is getting close to extinction; a people that live and have lived, by all the values, ethics and honesty that are missing in today's society and that everybody, deep inside their heart, is longing for.
I am fortunate enough to have had the chance to meet some of these incredible, hardworking people.
We are currently, (for the first time ever), making a full length documentary movie about the Cracker culture.
