A Forbidden Fruit?


CNCSI-1002

The apple tree was perhaps the earliest tree to be cultivated and its fruits have been improved through selection over thousands of years. The only apples native to North America are crab apples, which were once called “common apples”.

The flowers are white with a pink tinge that gradually fades, five petaled, and 2.5 to 3.5 centimetres (0.98 to 1.4 in) in diameter. The fruit matures in autumn, and is typically 5 to 9 centimetres (2.0 to 3.5 in) in diameter.

The center of the fruit contains five carpels arranged in a five-point star, each carpel containing one to three seeds, called pips.

Apples appear in many religious traditions, often as a mystical or forbidden fruit.

One of the problems identifying apples in religion, mythology and folktales is that the word “apple” was used as a generic term for all (foreign) fruit, other than berries, but including nuts, as late as the 17th century.

Though the forbidden fruit in the Book of Genesis is not identified, popular Christian tradition has held that it was an apple that Eve coaxed Adam to share with her.

In this case the unnamed fruit of Eden became an apple under the influence of story of the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides.

As a result, in the story of Adam and Eve, the apple became a symbol for knowledge, immortality, temptation, the fall of man into sin, and sin itself.

Apples are often eaten raw; except for the seeds, which are slightly poisonous, the whole fruit including the skin is suitable for human consumption but the core is often not eaten, leaving an apple core as a residue.

Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.

Gifts Have Ribbons, Not Strings


Gifts have ribbons, not strings. 

Vanna Bonta

This is a holiday advice from Bonta essay “Ribbons vs. Strings” adapted to Christmas audio Tale “It’s the Gift That Counts” (Holiday Magic 2005 CD).

The above is an extract from Vanna Bonta’s Wikiquote Page.

So, do your gifts have ribbons or strings?

Well, for mine, they definitely have adhesive tapes on them… 😛

Hope you all  enjoy this quote.

I Can Be A Butterfly Too!


CNC2I-1001

Rotting delicacies!

OOH~ LA~ LA~

You are free to judge my life

I simply love it too much to care

I’ve lived my life by counting moments too

Just give me a stick of butter

I CAN BE A BUTTERFLY TOO!

Monologue of a Fly, Clouds N Cups

There is no dignity quite so impressive

And no one independence quite so important

As living within your means

Have a great day ahead!

A Restful Colour

WHAT’S A SURGEON WITHOUT HIS CYAN GOWN?

In the 19th century, surgeons wore white gowns, but in the 20th century surgeons began to wear cyan or green surgical gowns, for several reasons.

  • First, in the brightly-lit operating room, green reflected less light than white and caused less strain on the eyes of the medical team.
  • Second, cyan is the complementary color of red, so red blood on a cyan gown looks black or gray, and not red, and is not as vivid.
  •  Lastly, since green is considered one of the most restful and soothing colors, it causes less anxiety to patients.

Another lovely soul, Nadyess, has shared with us her favourite colour at the comment box and Cyan happens to be her favourite colour.

The reason why Nadyess loves Cyan:

She was born on an Island and because of all the different blue colors from the sea she always used to like that part the most.

Now, let’s read on to find out some little history that we’ve extracted from the lovely Wikipedia:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The name Cyan is derived from the Greek: κύανoς, transliterated kýanos, meaning “dark blue”.

It was formerly known as “cyan blue” or cyan-blue  and its first recorded use of as a color name in English was in 1879.

Wikipedia: Centaurea cyanus

Further origins of the color name can be traced back to a dye produced from the cornflower (Centaurea cyanus).

Wikipedia: CMYK Colour Model

In the CMYK color model, used in color printing, cyan is one of the primary colors, along with magenta, yellow, and black, which can be overlaid to produce all different colors.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cyan is the color of shallow water over a sandy beach. The water absorbs the color red from the sunlight, leaving a greenish-blue color.

Pure water is nearly colorless. However, it does absorb slightly more red light than blue, giving large volumes of water a bluish tint; increased scattering of blue light due to fine particles in the water shifts the blue color toward green, for a typically cyan net color.

Cyan is associated with making someone feel better and protection, as well as being associated with good health from getting exercise by going swimming.

For this reason, cyan colored tiles are often used to pave swimming pools to make the water within them seem more intensely colored, and therefore more inviting

What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn’t have any doubt…

It is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn’t want to go anywhere else.

Now I know why I keep having this inner urge to jump into a swimming pool whenever I spotted one.

Once again, a big thank you to Nadyess for sharing her favourite colour with us and thus making this post possible.

My favourite colour is blue.

What is your favourite colour?

Do drop us a comment if you lovely souls out there would like to share with us your favourite colours.

Have a wonderful and restful day ahead, always!
