"..."Luke" was a Middle English word, now obsolete, meaning "warm," which was based on "lew," another word for "warm." "Lew," in turn, was derived from the Old English word "hleow," meaning "warm."."Lukewarm" actually amounts to saying "warm-warm," but this sort of redundancy is common when obsolete words are carried over into modern usage.

If we trace "hleow" back a bit further, we find the Latin word "calor," meaning "heat." "Calor" gave us "calorie" (a measure of heat), "cauldron," and, from the derivative word "calere" ("to be hot"), the word "nonchalant," describing someone who stays cool."

Today I learned that the states that execute the most people are the same states that had the highest levels of lynchings in the early 20s.

The video is an iphone clip of the last few minutes of the very last gig of last week's music festival - the only chance I had to take any video! It was packed and we had to turn people away three nights running - keep an eye on the girls outside the window.... A great weekend, seven gigs in two and a half days in the pub, but I've subsequently spent most of this week like a zombie.
 
 

Very cool. They were rocking inside and outside for sure.{#Cheers} Glad it was a success.

 
Awesome band, and really nice blokes, normally a three-piece but Jay the bass player wasn't required for the encore so made the most of his spare time getting to know the audience a member of the audience better
 
Here they are with Jay and his bass:
 


 
 
BTW, we were only a tiny part of the festival - it was all over the town, and even Nancy played the piano in the local theatre along with all the other pupils of her piano teacher. Lovely weekend.

Yesterday I learned that you cannot open Grooveshark in IE 8.  It locks the damn thing up every time it's tried.

My sister's friend renovated her basement to look like an art deco speakeasy, complete with 3-D Maxfield Parrish clouds on the ceiling!

He was one of the first to embrace mass-produced art as frame-able product people would pay good money for. The one I have (Daybreak, smaller) probably sold for under $10 when it was released. Quite a chunk of change back then but because of his fame thru magazine covers, these good-looking prints sold very well. Wiki says enough prints of Daybreak were sold to go into 1 in 4 households in America.
 
Wiki also tells us that Mel Gibson's wife bought the original in 2006 and sold it at a 2.5 Million dollar loss 4 years later

In my research of Parrish, there was a hilarious direct quote. It was a time when he changed from people to landscapes...and he told the reporter, "I'm done with girls on rocks."
 
Also, his skies, landscapes, etc. were done in such a way that they were almost 3D-looking......but you can't tell unless you're standing next to an original.

I wish his stuff would go on tour! LOVE it.

I'm pretty sure we could find the Parrish if we looked long enough but at the very least it's "in the style of..."
