HELLEBORES – WINTER ROSES

Hellebores are commonly known as “Winter Roses”. They are real jewels in the winter garden. Many gardeners treasure their Hellebores and in recent years extensive breeding has produced some fabulous varieties.

A fascinator is a headpiece, a style of millinery. The word originally referred to a fine, lacy head covering akin to a shawl and made from wool or lace, but mostly feathers. In the modern usage, it refers to a woman’s alternative to hat for formal attire; it is usually a large hair decoration on a band or clip with elaborate trimmings and decoration like a formal hat and it can incorporate a base to make it a miniature hat.

A TRIBUTE TO THOSE LEFT BEHIND AT THE END OF A WAR
A family invests years of love and devotion in a child and watches that little one grow to adulthood and serve our beloved country . . . In the end we get a tri-folded flag that will never fly again . . . Ironic ? . . . Let there be no more war

(My link does not seem to work. I would have played the song from

Jackie Evancho: Danny Boy (

Lyrics

Danny Boy”

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone, and all the roses falling
It’s you, it’s you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
It’s I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying
If I am dead, as dead I well may be
Ye’ll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an ave there for me.

And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.

May there be peace in the world again!

 

C words Can Can

 

 

 

Can-can (sometimes non-hyphenated as in the original French: cancan French pronunciation: ​[kɑ̃kɑ̃]) is a high-energy and physically demanding music hall dance, traditionally performed by a chorus line of female dancers who wear costumes with long skirts, petticoats, and black stockings. The main features of the dance are the lifting and manipulation of the skirts, withhigh kicking and suggestive, provocative body movements. The Infernal Galop from Jacques Offenbach‘s Orpheus in the Underworld is the tune most associated with the can-can.[1]   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Can-can

Bridge over Troubled Water (song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bridge over Troubled Water” is the title song of Simon & Garfunkel‘s album of the same name. The single was released on January 26, 1970, though it also appears on the live album Live 1969, released in 2008. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on February 28, 1970, and stayed at the top of the chart for six weeks. “Bridge over Troubled Water” also topped the adult contemporary chart in the U.S. for six weeks.[2] The single has sold 6 million copies worldwide.[3]

This song’s recording process exposed many of the underlying tensions that eventually led to the breakup of the duo after the album’s completion. Most notably, Paul Simon has repeatedly expressed regret over his insistence that Art Garfunkel sing his song as a solo, as it focused attention on Garfunkel and relegated Simon to a secondary position. Art Garfunkel initially did not want to sing lead vocal, feeling it was not right for him. “He felt I should have done it,” Paul Simon revealed to Rolling Stone in 1972.

Garfunkel said that the moment when he performed it at a 1972 Madison Square Garden benefit concert, as part of a one-off reunion with Simon, was “almost biblical.”

In performances on the 2003 “Old Friends” tour, Simon and Garfunkel took turns singing alternate verses of the vocal.

It was ranked number 48 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Totara Park Bridge

Totara Park is a suburb of Upper HuttNew Zealand, located 2 km northeast of the city centre. It is accessed via the Totara Park Bridge which crosses the Hutt River, connecting it to State Highway 2 and the main Upper Hutt urban area. It was popular in the 1970s and 1980s for families moving into the Upper Hutt area.

Totara Park is built on alluvial gravel. The Wellington Fault runs through the suburb – one section of California Drive straddles the fault, and the road lanes are built on either side of the fault with a large central reservation between them. This was designed so houses would be offset at least 20 metres from the fault, hopefully limiting damage if the fault were to rupture.[1]
