臺南市 安定區 蘇厝 長興宮

(from http://www.fks.com.tw/?ptype=paper) 蘇厝位於台南縣安定鄉東北方的曾文溪畔。 安定原為平埔西拉雅族目加溜灣社之住地,稱為直加弄。 明朝永歷年間,蘇、林兩庄先民追隨鄭成功渡海來台,在拓荒過程中,經過數次遷徙,終於 在這片土地定居下來,從事農耕與經商,其後人丁日漸興旺,住戶愈來愈多,逐漸形成村落。 由於早期居民以蘇姓、林姓為多,又各據不同的角落,故有蘇厝、林厝之稱。後來才有王、梁 等姓人氏遷入此地共同開墾。 又因這裡在明鄭時期屬「永定里」的一甲,故稱為「蘇厝甲」。 ※坐船來的千歲爺 康熙18年(西元1679年)3月間,一個夜晚,涼風徐徐,萬籟俱寂,台江埔地上傳來一陣悠揚的樂聲;翌日清晨,蘇厝甲的村民相偕前往一探究竟,見有一船滯留河濱,眾人手持清香跪拜,船終於靠岸。村民登船探望,發現船艙內插著12支綢製令旗,上面寫著「玉敕代天巡狩十二行瘟王」,即張、余、侯、耿、、何、薛、封、趙、譚、盧、羅等12府千歲。 ※ 醮典中的巡按官及五主會 台南縣安定鄉長興宮,在每三年一科的瘟王祭醮典前,都會舉行瘟王醮典中的靈魂人物「巡按官」及各會首的擲筊杯選競逐活動,「選巡按官」活動是由該宮的主委「開杯」後開始杯選,最後,角逐出最多「聖杯」的人士,便是該科的瘟王醮典巡按官;其次依杯數多寡分別為主會首、副會首、協會首、都會首、讚會首。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
