hello

hello–the most common use is used as a telephone greeting (hello?), but used for expressing surprise or interest (hello!) before the telephone.  Remember the telephone?

1827 is the date the Oxford English Dictionary cites as the the first published use of “hello” as an expression of surprise.  At the same time (early 1800′s) a similar expression, “halloo” was used as in fox hunting.  “View Halloo” is the stage of the hunt when the hunters sight the fox in the open.  

1876 Alexander Graham Bell is generally credited with inventing the telephone.  Bell used a primitive microphone made up of a needle poked into a fluid.  

1877 April, Thomas Edison filed his patent on the carbon microphone.  He is also credited with using “hello” as a telephone greeting.  Edison’s carbon microphone made the telephone commercially practical .  

1877, July, Edison was experimenting with recorded sound and shouted the fox hunting “Halloo!” into the mouthpiece of the strip phonograph.

1877, August, A letter of this date has been found suggesting that “hello” had become his choice of greetings.  

1888, January, The first public telephone exchange opened and it has been “Hello” ever since.

The use of the telephone in the 1800′s violated the Victorian ettiquite rule that one didn’t address a person unless you had been introduced.  “Hello” was used because you didn’t know who was at the other end of the line.  So in a way the telephone contributed to the leveling of class distinctions at the turn of the century.

Babs was the land speed record car built and driven by John Parry-Thomas. It was powered by a 27-litre Liberty aero-engine.

Babs began as ‘Chitty 4’, one of Count Louis Zborowski’s series of aero-engined cars named 'Chitty Bang Bang’. As it was built at Zborowski’s estate of Higham Park near Canterbury, it was also known as the Higham Special.

Parry-Thomas rechristened the car Babs and rebuilt it with four Zenith carburettors and his own design of pistons. In April 1926, Parry-Thomas used the car to break the land speed record at 171.02 mph (273.6 km/h).

During a later record attempt at Pendine Sands, Wales on 3 March 1927, the car went out of control at speeds in excess of 100 mph. The car rolled over and Thomas was killed. Following the inquest into Thomas’s death, Babs was buried in the sand dunes at Pendine.

In 1969, After 40 years, the car was exhumed and restored to running order over several years by Owen Wyn Owen.

“Whatever dramas are going on in my life, I always find that place inside my head where I see myself as the cleanest, tallest, strongest, wisest person that I can be. […] My bad habits aren’t my title. My strengths and my talent are my title.” - Layne Staley 

“Layne wore his soul on the outside. He was luminous…too tender for this world. We are all very sad too lose him, but happy that he’s not sick anymore. He’s free on his own journey.” -Ann Wilson
