Crespine made the appearance at the end of the thirteen century. It was some kind of hairnet and had some innovation element, as in the Miggle Ages to show female hair considered to be immoral.
The crespine was a vertical item that plaited on each side of the face. In the 14th century, the veil reappared, but in new form as a 'nebula' headdress, made of a half-circle of linen framing the face.
In the contrast to the kerchief that was worn on the neck, rounded 'nebula' headdress, was framing the face in a square frame.
Also, in the end of te 14th century the was a cushion-headdress, what had some kind of padded roll worn over the hairnet. Sometimes this was pushed to extreme. The horn headdress came about 1410 with a structure called the "horn-of-a-cow" on which was draped the veil, followed by sausage-shaped roll of padded material forming a narrow U over the forehead.

Success means action,
Determination and dedication!
School activity
Means creativity!
Try not to quit, just come upon
Bumping in and leading on.
Day-to-day battling -
Successful people keep rousing
And going ahead
With creative hands
And knowledge-heads
By learning new things,
Everybody able to follow the dreams,
And apply job-oriented skills
From start, at the LRC orientation,
Followed by research and materials variation,
To digital portfolio preparation.

History of Shorts

We are wearing shorts in Miami a lot. But what is the history behind them? Perhaps the tradition came from sport activities.
Sports in 1920s made an influence on bathing costumes. Tennis players worn the summer clothes of this period. In April 1931, Senorita de Alvarez played tennis in divided skirts which came to slightly below the knee, and two years later Alice Marble of San Francisco appeared in shorts above the knee.
And Mrs. Fearnley-Whittingstall appeared at Wimbledon without stockings. This uproar by public, but was soon adopted by majority of women-players.
Cycling, although contributed to the fact that young women adopted shorts, sometimes so short that opposition made expressions when English cycling clubs went abroad.

On Friendship

"Being a good friend, and having a good friend, can enrich your days and bring you life-long satisfaction. But friendship don't just happen. They have to be created and nurtured. Like any other skill, building friendship has to be practiced."

206 Bones?

We count on our body every day! Bones are holding our skin together. Our muscles help us to move and our nerves will tell us what hurts. There are 206 bones in our body!
  • 54 bones in our hands and wrists
  • 52 bones in our feet and ankles
  • 106 bones in hands and feet make the majority of the bones in our entire body
We have 606 muscles in our body, and we use 200 muscles to take a simple step! It doesn't matter whether it's a giant step or a baby step. Our muscles make up about one-half of the body weight. The essential part of our muscles is our heart!

"May Morning" by John Milton

Now the bright morning star, day's harbinger,
Comes dancing from the east, and leads with her
he flowery May, who from her green lap throws
The yellow cowslip and the pale primrose.
Hail, bounteous May! that doth inspire
Mirth and youth and warm desire;
Woods and groves are of thy dressing,
Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing.
Thus we salute thee with our early song,
And welcome thee, and wish thee long.
