“Lingerie is so important, and I need jewelry more than clothes. I think every woman should own something that makes her feel sexy, as well as something that makes her feel happy. I love beautiful scarves… jackets…a great pair of blue jeans. Hats are always fun. My cowboy boots at the moment are bringing me a lot of pleasure. I think every woman has to decide for herself what truly turns her on. ” — Elizabeth Taylor

The Great Barracuda or Sphyraena barracuda is a salt-water fish belonging to the Sphyraenidae family. 

The Great Barracuda is described as being a long, silver, and short-finned fish with long teeth, pointed mouths, and bars of dark blue or silver on their bodies. They can grow up to 165 centimeters in length (5 feet) in length and have a frightening appearance.

The Great Barracuda feeds on a variety of fish, some even large as themselves, such as mackerel, tuna, grouper, needlefish, and have even been known to attack dolphins. Many divers have been bitten by barracudas as they are known to attack shiny materials that they may mistake for prey. No one has died from being bitten by barracudas, but precautions such as not wearing flashy jewelry is important when diving in places barracudas live.

Barracudas environments consist of coral reefs, and open waters in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Depending on the species, barracudas can be found in much of our oceans. 

Barracudas reproduce sexually during the warmer months of the year. Females will release eggs into the water where males will fertilize them. Barracudas do not take take of their eggs, and they are left to drift into shallow waters to hatch into larvae. As the larvae grow larger, they will move into deeper waters.

Fun Fact: Barracudas’ age can be determined by counting the rings on the scales structure of their inner ears. 

Fun Fact 2: Both my grandparents and my parents have swam with barracudas. Once, my grandmother was almost attacked for wearing a silver necklace, but was luckily able to tuck it into her wetsuit. 

Mary Tudor, Duchess of Suffolk/Isabella I of Castile

I already wrote about this some time ago but I have recently had a discussion with lizzie278 and I decided to bring that topic up once more.

This portrait was identified as Mary Tudor, Duchess of Suffolk years ago and nowadays most of us aren’t able to believe it could have been anybody else. However, some time ago, Spanish experts picked the subject up, having a strong suspicion it might have been a portrait of their most famous Queen, Isabella I of Castile. Precisely a copy painted after an original which got lost to time.


Personally I support that notion.


This coin which is of Isabella I of Castile made historians suspicious. Collars, the one in the portrait and the one in the coin are EXACTLY the same. Why would Mary Tudor be wearing a collar of the Spanish Queen? It seems to be extremely important piece of jewelry since Isabella’s likeness was engraved, having that collar on. Let me bring to your attention the fact that since there isn’t any other criteria, like specific signs, letters in the said portrait that would indicate it’s, in fact, Mary Tudor, Queen of France and Duchess of Suffolk, the very identification is still open and jewelry is the main clue in situations of this kind. Of course, considering the fact these two pieces of art are different when it comes to their forms (coin vs. painting) it won’t be an excat copy (please, note, I mentioned that pianting might have been painted after another one) but anyway, in spite of everything, as far as I’m concerned, we can tell it’s the same collar. Also as a whole, it isn’t a Tudor style, the headpiece and haircut Isabella is wearing are exactly the same as the ones of the sitter. The fact someone identified it as Mary Tudor a century ago doesn’t mean they were right in their assumptions. Also, the fact the sitter is a beautiful, young woman doesn’t mean it can’t be Isabella of Castile. She wasn’t born an old, ugly and fat hag - she had all the traits of 15th century ideal of beauty: fair eyed, fair/auburn haired, of a light complexion. Again, as it might have been a copy, probably painted some time ago after her death, she might have been idealized by the painter. 

As we can notice, the same/similar jewelry (again, all forms of these pieces differ from one another which is understandable) is on Joanna I of Castille’s sepulcher. So, it leads me to the conclusion that collar was a symbol of power, something significant and tightly associated with the Spanish Royal House. Two queens of Castile are wearing the same collar in two the most important, symbolic likeness: a coin and a sepulcher. I just can’t imagine the French Queen wearing an expensive collar of the House of Trastamara.

I was feeling nostalgic...

…And started to remember a bunch of theories we all had before Arc V reavealed the Interdimensional War plot. And because I’m a huge dork I ended up making a list(feel free to add yours):

Remember:

  • When we all thought Reiji was going to be Kaiba 2.0?
  • The theories of Sora being a time traveler from GX (well that one was half true)?
  • When we thought Sawatari was going to become a serious threath?
  • That we started to make theories about the character’s jewelry being important? (Reiji’s earrings, Sawatari’s necklace etc.)
  • When we speculated that Yuto was also a time traveler, and the son of Yuzu and Yuya?
  • When the Ruri = Yuzu theory was still plausible?
  • When we thought every single character was going to have counterparts
  • …And some people thought Shun could be Reiji’s counterpart? (Or even Sawatari’s for some)
  • When we thought Yuzu’s bracelet was going to be stolen?
  • About the “Yuya/Yuto is adopted and the lost brother of Yuto/Yuya” theory?
  • The time when we thought Yuto was some kind of protective spirit (ala Yami) for Yuzu?
  • When we were sure Yuya was going to be forced to join LDS because of the Pendulum Summon?
  • About the “Pendulum Summon is actually evil and is going to destroy the world”?
  • When we thought Reiji could be working with the enemies?
  • When we thought Yuzu was going to be “corrupted” by learning Fusion and pass to the enemy’s side?

Maybe you don’t remember, maybe you joined the fandom later, but because this is the first time in a long time that I follow since its birth, so I guess it’s kinda like remember all the funny things a baby did before it grew up, and before all the drama too.

Little visitor ( closes starter )

Bernard was quite perplexed by his current situation , and he was t very sure what to do about it either . You see Bernard had began to notice things in his home go missing , not important things like jewelry or money , just small barley noticeable things like spools of yarn , sewing needles , tissue paper , buttons and very often bits of food , at first Bernard had suspected mice but they when more interesting things turned up gone he shrugged off the idea.

Now it was t as if Bernard couldn’t replace the things he’d lost , he was t upset or angry with whatever little creature was doing this , no he was more curious about the little thing , he was very confused by what it could be , because for some reason where ever it had been always smelt like human to the old werewolf .
