Coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Gift Ideas
Image by Lawrence OP
"Now however, let us ask ourselves: what does “Mary Queen” mean? Is it solely a title, together with others, a crown, an ornament like others? What does it mean? What is this queenship? As mentioned above, it is a consequence of her being united to the Son, of her being in heaven, that is, in communion with God; she shares in God’s responsibility for the world and in God’s love for the world. There is a worldly or common idea of a king or queen: a person with great power and wealth. But this is not the kind of royalty of Jesus and Mary. Let us think of the Lord; the royalty and kingship of Christ is interwoven with humility, service and love. It is above all serving, helping and loving…
She is Queen in her service to God for humanity, she is a Queen of love who lives the gift of herself to God so as to enter into the plan of man’s salvation. She answered the Angel: “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord” (cf. Lk 1:38) and in the Magnificat she sings: God has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden (cf. Lk 1:48). She helps us. She is Queen precisely by loving us, by helping us in our every need; she is our sister, a humble handmaid.

And so we have already reached this point: how does Mary exercise this queenship of service and love? By watching over us, her children: the children who turn to her in prayer, to thank her or to ask her for her motherly protection and her heavenly help, perhaps after having lost our way, or when we are oppressed by suffering or anguish because of the sorrowful and harrowing vicissitudes of life".
– Pope Benedict XVI.

“Bad Ass” Aggie Ring Goes to the Art Deco Edison Memorial Tower and “Big Ass Lightbulb!”

A few nice Gift Ideas images I found:

“Bad Ass” Aggie Ring Goes to the Art Deco Edison Memorial Tower and “Big Ass Lightbulb!”
Gift Ideas
Image by flickr4jazz
Aggie Ring loves a good "selfie!"

I could tell that Aggie Ring was impressed. After several moments of silence he spoke out and said, “If my Eyes of Texas aren’t deceiving me, that’s the biggest damn lightbulb I’ve ever seen! I guess it’s true… Everything IS bigger in Jersey!”

The Aggie Ring woke me up early this morning. In fact it was even before 11:30 a.m. so I knew he wanted to do something. I asked the Aggie Ring, “What do you want to do Aggie Ring?” The Aggie Ring replied, “I want to go see the lightbulb!” I wasn’t sure what he was talking about so I said, “What lightbulb?” The Aggie Ring said with emphasis, “Let there be LIGHT!” Then it hit me. Aggie Ring wanted to drive him up the Parkway to the site of Thomas A. Edison’s Menlo Park laboratory so he could see the Art Deco Edison Memorial Tower and “Big Ass Lightbulb!”

Other than the time he told me that he thought Elvis took our change in a tollbooth on the New Jersey State Turnpike, Aggie Ring has great ideas. It’s only about a 20 to 25 minute drive up the Parkway from our house so Aggie Ring and I set off to see the Edison Memorial Tower. The last time we’d been there it had been in horrible shape and they were beginning work on restoring it. That was a bit over a year ago so I assumed that Aggie Ring figured out that they would be finished with the conservation work on the historical site.

When we drove down the little side street where the tower is located the Aggie Ring was overwhelmed with awe at the restored site. Aggie Ring was truly “speechless!” It’s just as beautiful as the day it was built. They did an incredible job on the restoration. After a few moments sitting in the car just looking out the window Aggie Ring broke his silence and asked me, “Did you bring a cigar? Edison loved his cigars and I think he’d have wanted you to smoke a cigar while you’re looking the place over.” Unfortunately I had left my cigars at home so the Edison “smoke out” will have to happen on a future date.

The laboratory building is no longer at this site but it’s still impressive to think of not only the electric lightbulb, but all of the other great inventions that Mr. Edison invented here. Aggie Ring said, “Imagine. He did all this stuff without the help of an Aggie Ring!”

The Aggie Ring and I walked around the tower and took some photos of the “Big Ass Lightbulb” and the historical plaques at its base. The Aggie Ring and I are planning on going back some evening when the lightbulb is illuminated. Aggie Ring said, “It would be cool if you could get a photo during a thunderstorm when there’s lightning behind the tower.” I told Aggie Ring, “You’re crazy! I’m not standing out in a field during a lightning storm with an Aggie Ring on my finger! Maybe if we can get a VMI grad to come with us. Their rings are so damn big a lightning bolt would hit one of them before us!”

Aggie Ring said, “It’s a good thing Edison invented the lightbulb or there’d be a lot of Waggies drinking their tequila shots by candlelight!” I told the Aggie Ring, “True… Those Waggies love their tequila the invention of the lightbulb makes it a lot easier for them to pour the tequila and do body shots!”

Aggie Ring asked me to provide some info on the Edison “Big Ass Lightbulb” Memorial Tower for your educational enlightenment (“Get it?” Aggie Ring said):

Thomas Alva Edison Memorial Tower and Menlo Park Museum, New Jersey

"Let there be light." Thomas Alva Edison’s Menlo Park Laboratory and Memorial Tower. Those of us on the Jersey Shore call it the "Big Ass Lightbulb!”

The Edison Tower, located on the site of the original laboratory at Menlo Park, New Jersey, to which Thomas Alva Edison moved in 1876, was erected in 1937 as a monument to the great inventor. The Tower is the gift of William Slocum Barstow to the Thomas Alva Edison Foundation Incorporated in behalf of the Edison Pioneers. It was dedicated on February 11, 1838, the ninety-first anniversary of the inventor’s birth.

Rising 131 ft. 4 in. above the ground, the tower looms as the highest discernible object for many miles. Surmounting the 117 ft. 8 in. concrete-slab structure is a 13 ft. 8 in. replica of the original incandescent lamp which, when illuminated, can be seen for a distance of several miles. It once served as an airplane beacon. The Tower is designed for pressure of wind at a velocity of 120 miles per hour. In its construction, which consumed slightly less than eight months, approximately 1200 barrels of Edison Portland cement and 50 tons of reinforced steel were used.

The large bulb on top of the Tower was cast by the Corning Glass Works. The replica bulb contains 153 separate pieces of amber tinted Pyrex glass, 2 in. thick, set upon a steel frame. The bulb is 5 ft. in diameter at the neck and 9 ft. 2 in. in diameter at the greatest width and weighs, without the steel frame on which it is placed, in excess of three tons. Before the restoration, inside this Pyrex glass bulb were four 1000 watt bulbs, four 200 watt bulbs, and four 100 watt bulbs. A duplicate of each was arranged as automatically to cut in should its companion bulb fail.

The Edison Tower has been completely restored and when complete, the bulb is now illuminated with modern Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology. Mr. Edison would be pleased with this, I’m sure.

While we don’t have any records of exactly what was said when Mr. Edison perfected his invention, I suspect one of his workers shouted out something like this: “Holy Mother of Baby Jesus on a Donkey!” “Mr. Edison, You’ve done it!!! You’ve perfected the Electric Light!!! You truly are King of Kings!!!!”

The tower is located on a mysterious plot of land and exactly at midnight on the night of a full moon, it would be a perfect site for the ritual sacrifice of virgins. Too bad we don’t have any of those in New Jersey! 🙂

Evening dress 1914

A few nice Design Gift Ideas images I found:

Evening dress 1914
Design Gift Ideas
Image by Dovima-2010
This gown from 1914 exemplifies the fashion aesthetic of the time, in which multiple layers and textures of fabric were intended to give the appearance of an unstructured and spontaneous design.

The use of the selvedge edge at the front of the dress, for example, was an intentional technique used by couturiers of the period to express the idea that fabric was wrapped and draped with minimal tailoring. More careful examination, however, reveals the gown’s unusual construction. The train itself forms a pleated overpanel at the back of the bodice, accomplished through a complex series of drapes and folds.

Only a designer of Madame Gerber’s caliber could maintain the overall feel of simplicity while executing the complicated design of this dress.

James Oglethorpe was the founder of the Province of Georgia and the town of Savannah in 1733. Oglethorpe’s plan for the colony included no slavery, small but equal sized farms for everyone and well planned towns based on Roman ideals with town squares for open spaces and a grid pattern of streets. Savannah still shows vestiges of Oglethorpe’s plan with city wards based on a set number of houses (about 40) for each town square. Town families were also to be allocated five acres beyond the town boundaries for a small farm. Above all his plan was for the “middling” strata of society and it was designed to foster egalitarianism. Some historians claim the Colonel William Light was influenced by Oglethorpe’s plans and ideas when he planned the city of Adelaide. But Light was also influenced industrialism and the need for open parklands. Edward Gibbon Wakefield was also possibly influenced by Oglethorpe for his pan was also designed to equalise the price of farm lands, stop land speculation and use funds from the sale of land to subsidize the passage to SA of workers and servants. Similarly Oglethorpe’s plan used funds from the colony Trustees to subsidise passages to Georgia for intending migrants. Thus both the Oglethorpe and the Wakefield plans sought to replicate the best features of British society in a far off land. Both plans were expected to be a refuge for Protestants and Dissenters, with the Oglethorpe plan forbidding emigration of Roman Catholics to Georgia .Both colonies encouraged persecuted German Lutheran emigrants. Both were designed to encourage small scale farming, create a viable sustainable economy and produce an ordered society. Both plans were centred on a large well planned capital city (Adelaide and Savannah) which was to be the focus of all economic activity in the early years. In the end both plans were modified and then largely ignored as attempts of using colonisation systems for social engineering were not greatly successful. As early as 1738 colonists petitioned the colony Trustees and Oglethorpe for permission to own slaves. The Trustees did not give in on this until 1750 but two years later Georgia became a Crown colony under direct control of King George II anyway. Slavery then expanded and prospered as the favoured form of cheap labour rather than English labourers on assisted passages from England. Oglethorpe left Georgia for good in 1734 and other Trustees continued to control Georgia until it became a Crown colony.

Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace House Oglethorpe Avenue.
Juliette Gordon was born in 1860 and married William Low in 1886 a wealthy cotton factor or merchant who inherited his father’s house, Andrew Low House in that year. We visit Juliette Low’s Birthplace House in Oglethorpe St, (Wayne-Gordon House) which was built in 1823 for James Wayne a US Congressman and Savannah mayor before purchase by the Gordon family. After her marriage Juliette’s husband William Low upgraded the Lafayette Square mansion. But when William Low died in 1905 he left his estate to his mistress including the Lafayette Square house (built 1848). Juliette contested the will and got the Andrew Low House back whilst still living in England. In 1911 in England Juliette had founded the Girl Guides Movement. In 1912 she returned to Savannah and established the movement in the United States. Juliette lived in Andrew Low house from 1912 until her death in 1927. The Girl Scouts of America purchased the Wayne-Gordon House in 1953 to turn Juliette’s birthplace into a museum, and her Andrew Low house carriage house for the First Girl Guide headquarters.

Some recommendations for your free afternoon in Savannah.
1. So much is possible because General Sherman spared burning Savannah when he reached it on 10th December 1864. General Hardee of the Confederacy had 10,000 troops entrenched in the city. After a short battle Sherman opened up his links to the Union navy near Savannah and obtained guns and ammunition for an attack. Sherman surrounded the city and then advised General Hardee to surrender or be attacked or face slow starvation as all supplies in would be cut. Hardee fled with his troops up the Savannah River and the mayor of Savannah went out to Sherman and surrendered the city without a shot fired. Sherman entered the city and established his headquarters there. On 20th December he telegraphed President Lincoln "I beg to present you as a Christmas gift the City of Savannah, with one hundred and fifty guns and plenty of ammunition, also about twenty-five thousand bales of cotton." You can visit Sherman’s headquarters in Green-Meldrum House (1853) in Madison Square next to St. John’s Episcopal.
2. Harper-Fowlkes House, on Orleans Square built in 1842 for the Gardiner family. It has had numerous owners. The last owner Alida Fowlkes restored and redecorated the house and left it to the Society of the Cincinnati upon her death in 1985. They still run it and the tours are less formal than those by the Savannah Preservation Society. You can touch things! The Society was formed in 1783 to preserve the ideals of the American Revolution (it has nothing to do with the city of Cincinnati). To join the Society one of your male ancestors has to have been an Officer of the Continental Army for at least three years or have been an officer killed in battle during the War of Independence.
3. Davenport House on Columbia Square (1820). This red brick Federal style house was built for a builder as a show case of his skills. It was saved from demolition by the Savannah Foundation in 1955 which was formed for this purpose. Since then they have saved dozens of historic houses. It is good to hear the story of the Savannah Foundation. Davenport died of yellow fever and his wife took over. During the Civil War she had three sons fighting for the Union and three for the Confederacy.

Can YOU find the adorable little Aggie Ring in this photo?
