PHOTO HUNTERS - TWO


It was so difficult to decide what photo to post for "TWO" but last Friday Sarah (our niece) and Ben were married and so I thought this was the perfect photo of TWO lovely people on their very special day. Many thanks to our daughter Lynn and son-in-law Steve (another perfect "TWO") for sending me this photo that they had taken.


BTW if any of you know someone who's starting to plan their wedding can I point you in the direction of Denisebydesigns; our very own fellowblogger MrsNesbitt has started this site to show some of the beautiful personalised wedding/birth and anniversary stationery she has to offer. I'm sure many of you will remember the beautiful memorial cards she made for Mick...should you be in the position of needing something similar her LivingMemorials site will give you details as how to contact her and give you more information as to the many ways she could help you remember your loved ones..

A bit of Trivia
The symbol we use today in the Western world to represent the number 2 traces its roots back to the Brahmin Indians, who wrote 2 as two horizontal lines (it is still written that way in modern Chinese and Japanese, and is analogous to the Roman numeral II). The Gupta rotated the two lines 45 degrees, making them diagonal, and sometimes also made the top line shorter and made its bottom end curve towards the center of the bottom line. Apparently for speed, the Nagari started making the top line more like a curve and connecting to the bottom line. The Ghubar Arabs made the bottom line completely vertical, and now the glyph looked like a dotless closing question mark. Restoring the bottom line to its original horizontal position, but keeping the top line as a curve that connects to the bottom line leads to our modern glyph. (information from
Wikipedia).

Hi Ruth --

A request, if I may: Can you indicate on your Photo Hunt visits which of your blogs hosts your Photo Hunt pictures? Had a bit of problem figuring out which was the right one to visit in return -- you have so many blogs! ;S
