#phrygia was rich in gold.
It is seen in the legends and myths about Phrygian kings. One of this #legends tell us about #kingmidas and his #goldentouch
I wouldn't be retelling the whole story here, but the fact that, when King Midas accidentally turned his own daughter into gold and prayed to Dionysus to rescue him from the curse golden touch has become, Dionysus offered him to wash in river Pactolus, is worth mentioning. It is #historicalfact that this river contained lots of gold.
So, it is no surprise, that #goldworkembroidery appeared in Phrygia from where it spreaded out to Europe.
Byzantine Empire and later Ottoman Empire inherited embroidery traditions of Phrygia.
In Ottoman Empire embroidery surrounded people everywhere. It was found not only on the clothes but also in the furnishes. There are impressive examples of divan and cushion covers, special floor covering for praying, curtains etc. Some of them were embroidered with pure golden thread which is named #zerzud

BAYFIELD’S ICONIC OFFSHORE STEAMBOAT WRECK HAS FINALLY DISAPPEAED BENEATH THE WAVES AFTER NEARLY 50 YEARS .

THERE IS SOMETHING MISSING OFFSHORE FROM THIS BAYFIELD SHORELINE

Yes it’s true….Bayfield has lost one of it’s most notable Lake Huron landmarks or should that be lakemarks.  What was left of the old Steamboat  Linda Hindman has finally disappeared beneath the waves of Lake Huron just off the shoreline south of the harbor.  The rusting hulk had been a tourist attraction and gathering point for summer swimmers, boaters, seagulls and cormorants for nearly fifty years. .

Visiting the gorgeous church of Saint Francis of Assisi. Assisi at this time of year around the holidays is a beautiful place to be. The Christmas decorations are some of the best I've seen in Italy. Also there is a charming cafe just across the way from the upper level of the church which has some delicious pastries.

The fort of Bhansrodgarh situated at Udaipur district of Rajasthan, 120 miles from Udaipur on the banks of the Chambal.  It is surrounded by deep forests and the mountainous terrain.

Lagos Colonial Secretariat.

Lagos Colonial Secretariat designed and built by the Public Work Department of the colonial Government is a building which is over a 100 years old. The Secretariat was completed in 1895. It is regarded as the most imposing colonial building in Lagos, built with imported bricks, each one of which was stamped with the armorial bearings (broad arrows) of the  quartermaster General of Britain which appeared on all British Government property. The building was used by Lord Lugard while directing the affairs of the Nigerian Colony. The building is famous for its English architectural design with its two twin towers which serves as a guard front for security, overlooking the rest of the building and a good vantage point of Lagos Island.

On this day in 1969, the House of Lords passed a resolution to abolish capital punishment. Capital punishment in the United Kingdom was used from ancient times until the second half of the 20th century. The last executions in the United Kingdom were by hanging, and took place in 1964, prior to capital punishment being abolished for murder

Keep the home fires burning? Musketeer Clarke blows on the embers of his 'match' to keep it alight. Keeping your slow-burning cord burning slowly was one of the key challenges for a musketeer - without it, they couldn't fire their gun. But it had many disadvantages: it could easily get wet and high winds could make it impossible to use. Also, on more than one occasion a force was discovered either by the sight of lit match in the darkness or by the acrid smell of the saltpetre-impregnated match burning. The rate of burning was approximately 1 ft (305mm) per hour and a single soldier on guard duty, for one year, could use an entire mile worth of match cord.

The bitter fighting against partisans went on throughout the 1941 and 1945 in Yugoslavia. Here an MG30(t) team from the 7. SS Freiwilligen Gebirgs Division Prinz Eugen guards a mountain road in 1943.

These soldiers, who were ethnic Germans from the Balkans, wear camouflaged field caps and smocks over their overcoats. Just as on the Eastern Front, many victims of the partisan warfare in the Balkans were caused not by the Waffen-SS but by the opposing native factions. However, soldiers from the Prinz Eugen Division were rightfully accused for commiting atrocities and executed by Tito’s partisan terrorists, and the ethnic Germans living in the Balkans (including their families) were expelled, tortured, killed and dispossessed.

My current literature obsession. Sustainability is certainly about using innovation and technology to create solutions for current energy and material wastes, but some solutions are even simpler.

Did you know that medieval farmers rotated the crops they planted in their fields? This helped prevent soil exhaustion, allowing the nutrients in the soil to replenish naturally. No fancy chemicals required, just old-fashioned environmental knowledge.

While modernity certainly has its perks (I’m NOT advocating bathing once a year Medieval style), sometimes history and archaeology can provide solutions humanity has forgotten in the glitter of progress. By balancing the past with the future, we can use thousands of years of human knowledge and innovation to create a brighter future.

I’m also fascinated by the architecture of the Medieval Period, so I’m constantly trying to learn everything I can about it.

Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost.

12/17/1794 — The Architect 📐
.
Plenty of us spend our lives dreaming about the mark we might make on the world 🌎. Some are even hardworking and lucky enough to pull it off. But who takes that call so seriously that they literally leave their legacy all throughout their city? ☄️
.
Mr. Charles Bulfinch. That’s who.
.
The guy really knew how to raise the #roof 🏗
.
Stroll any street in Boston and you’ll eventually end up on the doorstep of one of them Neoclassical buildings Bulfinch was so fond of designing 📏

For one of our first American-made professional architects, Bulfinch showed a heck of a lot of humility and individuality early on ☺️.

Bulfinch got back to Boston and set to work designing an astonishing amount of pro ‪bono‬ work, and it completely reshaped the city we know and love in his image 🎨. It was this magnanimous spirit that helped him land an easy mortgage on a house he’d built for his family today in Boston, 1794 💸. This demeanor also helped him both get out of debtors’ prison after a bad investment AND get elected Chairman of the Board of Selectmen in 1799, a perch from which he converted ‪Boston Common‬ into a park 🌳

It should come as no surprise that in 1817, after years of kicking architectural ass up in Boston, Charles Bulfinch was asked by President James Monroe to design the U.S. Capitol. Unfortunately, this would be the last time any thought would go into that building 🏛

12/17/1794 — The Architect 📐 . Plenty of us spend our lives dreaming about the mark we might make on the world 🌎. Some are even hardworking and lucky enough to pull it off.

A Day at Sikandra

Akbar’s tomb at Sikandra (Agra) is the resting place of Akbar, Mughal Emperor. The tomb is built on an area covering 119 acres during early 17th century. This is the mausoleum that Akbar chose for himself but could not finish it during his time. The monument has Mughal elements like red sandstone and marble with inlay works and geometric patterns.

Once we enter into the gateway, we will find Mughal styled gardens. In the garden, you can find antelope and monkeys. There is a water canal on both the sides of the garden. The tomb has four gates and the south gate is the largest one with minarets on top like the ones in Taj Mahal. A wall covers the tomb. The building is a four-leveled pyramid with marble pavilion. The false tomb is found in the ground floor while the real tomb is located in the basement. The basement is not open for tourists. It is said to contain precious and expensive jewels, weapons and other before the attack of Jats.

The tomb also has the remains of two of Akbar’s daughters. Unlike any other Mughal tombs, the tomb is faced towards the east rather than towards Mecca.

In 1932, the royal Australian Artillery gathered their machine guns and took to the rural regions of Perth, Australia. 👉 Who would be the target of their aim? The mischevious emu… and its entire family. This would mark the beginning of what is now referred to as The Emu War.

After being arrested for smuggling amphetamines and sedatives at the Mexico-US border, Johnny Cash spent a night in jail, later pleading guilty to the drug charges 2 months later.

Exiting the courthouse, Cash was photographed with his Italian-American wife Vivian Liberto, who appeared in the news paper the next day to be an African American women. 
Hate groups would target Cash for this miss-conception, being boycotted by Southern Fans.

“I wake up at 5am on Sunday morning to visit the Rakab Ganj Sahib Gurdwara. A Gurdwara is the sacred temple of Sikhs, this one is very special in Delhi, because it was the place where Guru Tegh Bahadur was cremated in 1675. It is a very special and mystical place to feel peace and get positive energy in chaotic New Delhi. I also met a very nice couple there, they come every Sunday from Noida as volunteers to serve Chole and Bread to the visitors, this is a very special Sikh tradition
where a free meal is served to all the visitors outside the Gurdwara without distinction of religion, caste, gender, economic status or ethnicity”. .

The Spanish Flu:

100 years ago today the world was in the middle of one of the worst natural disasters of all time. Still recovering from the Great War people were yet again plunged into despair.

The 1918 influenza pandemic (January 1918 – December 1920) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic, the first of the two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus. It infected 500 million people around the world, including people on remote Pacific islands and in the Arctic, and resulted in the deaths of 50 to 100 million (three to five percent of the world's population), making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history.

•Part 2• 
Using that framework, Jane Austen unveiled her wit and dislike of sensibility, or romantic hysteria, a distinct perspective that would eventually characterize much of her later writing. The next year she wrote The History of England..., a 34-page parody of historical writing that included illustrations drawn by Cassandra. These notebooks, encompassing the novels as well as short stories, poems and plays, are now referred to as Jane's Juvenilia. 
Jane spent much of her early adulthood helping run the family home, playing piano, attending church, and socializing with neighbors. Her nights and weekends often involved cotillions, and as a result, she became an accomplished dancer. On other evenings, she would choose a novel from the shelf and read it aloud to her family, occasionally one she had written herself. She continued to write, developing her style in more ambitious works such as Lady Susan, another epistolary story about a manipulative woman who uses her sexuality, intelligence and charm to have her way with others. Jane also started to write some of her future major works, the first called Elinor and Marianne, another story told as a series of letters, which would eventually be published as Sense and Sensibility. She began drafts of First Impressions, which would later be published as Pride and Prejudice, and Susan, later published as Northanger Abbey by Jane's brother, Henry, following Jane's death. 
In 1801, Jane moved to Bath with her father, mother and Cassandra. Then, in 1805, her father died after a short illness. As a result, the family was thrust into financial straits; the three women moved from place to place, skipping between the homes of various family members to rented flats. It was not until 1809 that they were able to settle into a stable living situation at Jane's brother Edward's cottage in Chawton.

On yesterday’s date, December 16, 1775,  Jane Austen was born in Steventon, Hampshire. While not widely known in her own time, Austen's comic novels of love among the landed gentry gained popularity after 1869, and her reputation skyrocketed in the 20th century. Her novels, including Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, are considered literary classics, bridging the gap between romance and realism.

On yesterday’s date, December 16, 1775, Jane Austen was born in Steventon, Hampshire. While not widely known in her own time, Austen's comic novels of love among the landed gentry gained popularity after 1869, and her reputation skyrocketed in the 20th century. Her novels, including Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, are considered literary classics, bridging the gap between romance and realism. Jane was the seventh child and second daughter of Cassandra and George Austen. Her parents were well respected community members; her father served as the Oxford-educated rector for a nearby Anglican parish. Jane was apparently born later than expected as her father wrote of her arrival in a letter that her mother "certainly expected to have been brought to bed a month ago". He added that her arrival was particularly welcome as "a future companion to her sister". The winter of 1776 was particularly harsh and it was not until April 5 that she was baptised at the local church with the single name Jane. The Austen family was close and the children grew up in an environment that stressed learning and creative thinking. When Jane was young, she and her siblings were encouraged to read from their father's extensive library. The children also authored and put on plays and charades. Over the span of her life, Jane would become especially close to her father and older and only sister, Cassandra (who interestingly didn’t marry either). Jane and Cassandra would one day collaborate on a published work. In order to acquire a more formal education, Jane and Cassandra were sent to boarding schools during Jane's pre-adolescence. During this time, Jane and her sister caught typhus, with Jane nearly succumbing to the illness. After a short period of formal education cut short by financial constraints, they returned home and lived with the family from that time forward. Ever fascinated by the world of stories, Jane began to write in bound notebooks. In the 1790s, during her adolescence, she started to craft her own novels and wrote Love and Freindship [sic], a parody of romantic fiction organized as a series of love letters.

Did you know that after Prince Albert died, Queen Victoria kept the room he died in, the Blue Room at Windsor Castle, the exact same as the day he died? 
On the express orders of Queen Victoria the room was to remain as it was when Prince Albert died here in 1861. Fresh flowers, clothes and hot water continued to be carefully laid out each day and the sheets changed. In the latter years of the 19th century the curtaining had became faded, frayed and rotten and desperately needed to be replaced. It was 'fearfully' replaced with new silk faded down to the original. This fact was carefully kept from Queen Victoria who thankfully never noticed the change due to her increasingly bad eyesight. After the accession to the throne of King Edward VII he had this room totally redecorated to serve as his Study-it serves this purpose today. 
Prince Albert's rooms were located from the south wall of The White Drawing Room through to the King's (Victoria) Tower at the South East corner of the Castle. The Blue Room itself adjoined the White Drawing Room, the walls being hung with blue damask with matching curtains. 
The ceiling was painted with angels and stars after Albert's death but otherwise everything remained as it had been in his lifetime.
Photo above shows the Blue Room after Albert died.
