The Evening Is Magic
Mirrors Mirrors On The Walls!
Did You Know? -The earliest manufactured mirrors were pieces of polished stone such as obsidian, a naturally occurring volcanic glass. Examples of obsidian mirrors found in Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) have been dated to around 6000 BC. Polished stone mirrors from central and south America date from around 2000 BC onwards. Mirrors of polished copper were crafted in Mesopotamia from 4000 BC, and in ancient Egypt from around 3000 BC. In China, bronze mirrors were manufactured from around 2000 BC.
Did You Know? -Metal-coated glass mirrors are said to
have been invented in Sidon (modern-day Lebanon) in the first century
AD, and glass mirrors backed with gold leaf are mentioned by the Roman
author Pliny in his Natural History, written in about 77 AD. The Romans
also developed a technique for creating crude mirrors by coating blown
glass with molten lead.
Some time during the early Renaissance, European manufacturers perfected a superior method of coating glass with a tin-mercury amalgam. The exact date and location of the discovery is unknown, but in the 16th century, Venice, a city famed for its glass-making expertise, became a centre of mirror production using this new technique. Glass mirrors from this period were extremely expensive luxuries.
Keep On Dancing
Mary and Arthur trip the light fantastic
Did You Know? - To "trip the light fantastic" is to dance nimbly or lightly, or to
move in a pattern to musical accompaniment.
This phrase evolved through an interesting series of usages and references. The phrase is typically attributed to Milton's poem L'Allegro, but a somewhat similar phrase appears in Shakespeare's The Tempest. The phrase in this modern usage comes from the lyrics of the song The Sidewalks of New York.
