      “Japanese language… green is considered a shade of blue”

      The words of each language to do with colour determine how we see colour

      and A and B are the same shade

      It’s mind-boggling… :o  :funny:

  5. Yesterday
  6. Revisiting my earliest monologues after adding a new one, I'm astounded still at what I managed so early on in my writing journey. 'Barred' in particular is a favourite. And it serves to remind us Pride is here for a reason.  🌈🏳️‍🌈

     

  7. Something New

    I have been silent here for awhile and this is one of the reasons why, I’ve been writing a lot. One of the things I have been writing is a novella/novel set in contemporary London. This is the first chapter of that story, The World Out There.

    This is a dark and very adult story. It follows nineteen-year-old Liam as he tries to adjust to his new life.

    Chapter One sets the scene on Liam’s life and where he is. Read it here.

    Happy reading.

  8. I started doing some tidying 

    …and ended up doing archeology :o  :gikkle:

      Are you using relative or absolute dating on your finds? 😛

    2. Zombie

      Zombie

      @drpaladin I use the “layer” method:

      on top = newer :) 

      underneath = older :D

      invoices + correspondence provide accurate datelines for when nearby items were “laid down” - better then carbon dating :gikkle:

      of course, the layers get f*@%+! up if my sister’s been rummaging - kinda like a geological earthquake… :unsure:

    World Juggling Day

    World Juggling Day is held annually on a Saturday closest to June 17 to commemorate the anniversary of the foundation of the International Jugglers Association (IJA) in 1975.

    Young woman in clown costume juggling balls in an old market place on July 27, 2008, in Kazmierz Dolny, Poland.

    The unofficial holiday was first observed in the mid-1980s as National Juggling Day in the United States in order to raise awareness of the art and science of juggling and to encourage people to take up the art.

    In 1995, the name of the day was changed to World Juggling Day in order to reflect the global reach of the IJA.

    How to Celebrate?

    • Attend juggling contests, festivals, and shows where professional jugglers perform.
    • Try your hand with juggling. Just make sure, you start with small items. So no knives or heavy items, ok?

    Did You Know…

    …that the earliest record of juggling objects dates back to 15th century Egypt?

      We got the rain band, no severe weather but it's still coming down.

  14. We topped 100 F yesterday, but a cool down arrives early in the week.  We have it much better than out west where the heat has been unrelenting while they also endure the worst drought in 150 years.

      I've never experienced weather as hot as that.

      I think that when the Fahrenheit scale was set up 100F was supposed to be the blood temperature of a healthy human. Perhaps we've grown less hot-blooded during the last century or two.

    International Picnic Day

    International Picnic Day is a made-up holiday that is celebrated annually on June 18. So, pack your picnic basket, hop into the car, or walk to a park or a picnic area and enjoy an outdoors meal by yourself or with your family and friends to celebrate this unofficial holiday.

    international-picnic-day-fun.jpg

    International Picnic Day is a day to commune with nature and enjoy a lovely summer day if you are in the Northern Hemisphere. For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, who says you can’t picnic indoors? Just spread a blanket in the middle of your living room. Maybe even create a pillow fort and enjoy some time with your family!

    A similar holiday is celebrated in the Australia’s Northern Territory on the first Monday of August each year. Picnic Day in this region is a public holiday.

     

    How to Celebrate?

    • Plan a picnic and invite all your friends and family.
    • If you are working, take your lunch hour off to have a picnic by yourself.

     

    Did You Know...

    ...that according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world's largest picnic was held in Lisbon, Portugal on June 20, 2009? Over 22,000 people attended this picnic organized by Realizar Impact Marketing and Modelo.

    I was working from home, interviewing a famous neurologist for an article, when my three-year-old announced she had to go potty and waddled into the bathroom.

    After some loud moans, she yelled, “I did it, Mom! I pooped in the toilet! I pooped on the floor too! But I’ll clean it! Oh, I stepped in it!”

    There was an uncomfortable silence as I realized the doctor had heard every word. “Ha ha,” I laughed nervously. “Do you have kids?”

    “No,” he said, “and I never will.”

    Eat Your Vegetables Day

    Whether you love your veggies or can’t stand them, you should celebrate Eat Your Vegetables Day on June 17. Why, you ask? Because the doctor says so, and because vegetables are delicious!

    Two boys enjoying their vegetables on Eat Your Vegetables Day.

    If you can’t stand greens and veggies on your plate at a meal, maybe it is time to start today. Vegetables are healthy and full of vitamins, phytonutrients, fiber, and minerals. Eating vegetables every day can help reduce the risk of a variety of health problems, including type 2 diabetes, obesity, and some types of cancers. Doctors around the world recommend that people eat at least five portion or servings of vegetables during the day.

    How to Celebrate?

    This is an easy day to celebrate. Eat up your veggies today and make a resolution to add more greens and vegetables to your diet in the future. Here are some more ways you can celebrate Eat Your Vegetables Day:

    • Visit your local farmer’s market and get some locally grown produce.
    • Prepare all your favorite veggies for all your meals.
    • Make your desserts using veggies.
    • Have at least five vegetables today.

    Did You Know…

    …that onions are the world's most widely used vegetable?

      @Ron are bumble bees different than bees? Cause bees lose their dart after having sting so imagine if you try to force separate bumble bees while they're having sex... he might lose his "dart" :gikkle: outch

      @clochette female bumblebees have a sting (and they can use reuse them) but males don’t - so don’t pick a fight with Big Momma Bee! :o :funny:  @Ron they’re not aggressive creatures so let them have their “fun” :lol:

      I like the bumblers, too, Zombie. I ended up needing to dodge one on a walk shortly after my post. Serendipity?!

  22. Teasers for the return of the DYSU story. The Next Stage will officially start being posted on the 1st of August 2021 with a prologue. 

    Every week until then, you can enjoy another glimpse of what's to come and speculate on what is actually going on for some of the media's headlines. The couple are in for a whole lot of drama when they are back in the spotlight!

    Bloomsday

    Celebrated annually on June 16, Bloomsday celebrates the life and times of Irish author James Joyce.

    bloomsday-fun.jpg

    The name and the date of this unofficial holiday come from Joyce's epic novel, Ulysses. Published in 1922 as a novel, the book follows Leopold Bloom, an advertising agent as he goes about his day in Dublin on June 16, 1904. According to some sources, June 16, 1904 is the date when Joyce met his future wife Nora Barnacle.

    Controversial Book

    Considered to be one of the most defining works of modernist literature, Ulysses courted controversy when it was first came out in serial form in the American literary magazine, The Little Review. It was banned in the United States and the United Kingdom until the mid-1930s.

    Thought to have been first observed in 1924, fans of the novel re-enact the events that occur in the book as a way to celebrate this literary holiday.

    How to Celebrate?

    • Participate in your local Bloomsday events.
    • If there aren’t any such events, what about organizing one of your own?
    • If you haven’t read the book, or it has been a while since you last read the book, maybe it is time to get a copy and read it.

    Did You Know…

    …that James Joyce suffered from cynophobia or the irrational fear of dogs?

    Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!, Quebec

    Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!—apparently the only town in the world with two exclamation points in its name—sits at the top of the Témiscouata valley.

    Some believe that the exclamatory portion of the town’s name comes from the sound that newcomers would make upon seeing the valley’s shining lake for the first time: ha! ha!

    Others say that the name comes from the fact that “haha” was once a synonym for cul-de-sac (a possible reference to Lake Témiscouata presenting an obstacle to roads).

    Either way, this funny Canadian town name has had visitors chuckling for generations.

  26. Woo-hoo!!! As the vaccination is going well and the numbers are above expectations the restrictions are being left earlier. From tomorrow mask isn't mandatory outside (except near school, farmer market...) and no more curfew starting Saturday night instead of July 1st! 

    With the heat of the last week masks we're starting to feel like a sweat suit.
