I don't know if this is a stupid question, but I need help identifying a plant I read about a while ago that I can't remember the name of. It's from Brazil, small, 6-8 inches, I think, forms a round mound of shorter grass-like leaves with a single tall flower spike coming out of it. The flower spike is topped with a ball of small, daisy-like flowers that look metallic bronze before they're open. You'd think that with that detail I'd be able to name the darn thing, but I just can't. It's driving me crazy!
I don't know if this is only in the UK, but on TV when presenters interview someone who does not speak english, how do they understand each other?The interview is shown as a 2 way conversation, but with each speaking their own language (eg one english, one spanish, with the spanish subtitled for the viewers) with no pauses inbetween. I presume that there is editing involved, but frequently the camera angles are so varied (or interviews are carried out in a moving vehicle) that you can tell there is no interpreter in the near vacinity.Maybe I have low expectations of the presenters, but I'm sure that most are not sufficiently bi-lingual to accomplish this unaided, or even good enough actors to ignore the invisible translator, or ignore the distraction from the invisible earpiece
Okay, I know an Anglophile is someone who loves all things British, but is there a word for someone who loves all things Irish? Or Celtic in general?
Is there a washable pad that can be used in the kitchen? I have a renter that drinks coffee. In an effort to be very thoughtful he places a paper towel under his coffee mugs that he keeps next to his coffee maker to catch spills so they won't stain my 1970 white with gold flecks laminate countertop. I'm looking for something that would replace the paper towels he uses to eliminate the waste of paper, that's dishwasher safe and that's half the size of a cutting board. Anybody know of any such thing?
A table mat? Wipeable but not washable. I don't know what they are called in the US, but they are effectively coasters for plates.
