Thought for the day:"I've just bought a new aftershave called 'Breadcrumbs' The birds love it."
So - some signs of the times....
King Harald Blatand, ruled the Denmark in tenth century AD. He is a
famous historical figure for making the Danish tribe. The King was often
named as the “Bluetooth” because his love for blueberries and there was
a permanent blue tint on one of his teeth.
The technology of Bluetooth has been designed for uniting more than
one devices with a single connection or network. Two Scandinavian runes
represent the symbol of this technology. These are “Hagall”, forming the
Latin “H” analog and “Bjarkan” for the Latin “B.” These two initials
have formed the name of Harald Blåtand. And the device color of first
Bluetooth was blue and resembled the tooth shape.
After many centuries, Europe and America were taken away by the
popularity of ampersand and for a very long period of time, English
alphabets were concluded by it. It was until the twentieth century that
it started to diminish. The word ampersand actually means “and per se
and” reflecting a contraction of phrase. Today, the symbol that we use
is merged form of the letters “E” and “T”
The theory states that Hermes (Greek God) possessed a mystic staff
called Caduceus, which precisely looked just like this medical symbol.
The fact is that Caduceus had no relation with medicine, he was meant
for reconciling enemies and stopping disputes.
The truth how this symbol was adopted is that many many years back,
the doctors of US military confused the symbol of Caduceus with
Asclepius who is a Greek god of medicine and healing because they were
similar looking. The mistake was understandable, but since then medicine
is represented by this symbol.
The letter “N” in this semaphore alphabet is communicated by the two
flags in between as inverted ”V,” whereas letter “D” is shaped by one
flag holding pointed upwards and the other in the downward direction,
hence forming the peace symbol.
So - last day of being 62 - but not ready for the Beatles yet ..
