2. Frau Wber of lily & sapphire
Frau Wber (Mrs Wber) is a popular and long-running drag act on German television, who appears in a number of light entertainment, Schlager and Volksmusik programmes on the state channel SWR, and on SWR-produced programmes of the same type in ARD. The character is played by Hansy Vogt, who also presents programmes as himself, and sometimes appears both as himself and Frau Wber in the same programme.
Vogt is also lead singer of the Schlager party band Die Feldberger, and in addition performs as a ventriloquist. Frau Martha Wber is a comic stereotype of a confused, elderly Swabian lady, and speaks in a strong, comical, Black Forest dialect. Typically, she appears in sketches and games, tells corny jokes, and performs scripted banter with minor German celebrities and Schlager singers.
The programmes in which she appears are generally designed to appeal to the elderly (a large proportion of German viewers) and the humour is gentle. The character thus cannot be compared with more contemporary and risque drag queens such as Lily Savage or RuPaul, and is more similar in tone to the cross-dressing exploits of The Two Ronnies or Stanley Baxter in classic light entertainment programmes of the past. She has co-presented the SWR show Frhlicher Alltag since 1998, and also frequently appears in other programmes such as Frhlicher Weinberg (SWR) and Immer Wieder Sonntags (ARD).

7. Life of lily & sapphire
Loat was born in Battersea in about 1880 and her father was John Loat. She was head pupil at Tiffin Girl's School in Kingston-on-Thames.
She took shorthand lessons and this skill gained her a position at the National Anti-Vaccination League which had been founded in 1896. Loat had no strong views on vaccination. She was working for the league's secretary answering correspondence and during this time she became a strong supporter of the league.
When the secretary resigned she was soon confirmed as the replacement secretary at the beginning of 1909. The league became her life and she knew a lot about the subject of vaccination and the possible hazards associated. She was invited to speak internationally in the 1920s and the 1930s and she would answer correspondence on the subject.
She enjoyed debating with critics. The Leagues journal The Vaccination Inquirer and Health Review had been published since 1880. Lote took on the editorship of the journal in 1932.
In 1951 she published The Truth about Vaccination and Immunization. This was a small book that itemised the arguments against vaccination. It is still re-issued.
Loat was also opposed to vivisection. Loat wanted to retire but no replacement could be found. This was a disappointment to her.
Loat died in Kingswood in Surrey in 1958. She was working for the National Anti-Vaccination League whilst in hospital during her final illness. She was still the editor of the league's journal- the journal's final issue was in 1972.
8. When the Lilies Bloom in France Again of lily & sapphire
"When the Lilies Bloom in France Again" is a World War I era song released in 1918. Robert Levenson wrote the lyrics.
George L. Cobb composed the music. It was published by Walter Jacobs of New York City and Boston, Massachusetts.
There are two versions of the sheet music cover. One was designed by Rose Starmer. The cover is described as an "artistic words only cover.
" Another cover is a painting of a garden, with lilies in the foreground. The song was written for both voice and piano. The song uses nature as a metaphor to assure listeners of hope and that everything will be restored at the end of the war.
It also highlights a promise a soldier makes: "When the lilies bloom in France again," the soldier will return to his sweetheart. The song starts by describing lilies growing and birds singing in France. This scenery is now bare, but "the flowers will bloom again, That's a part of every soldier's vow.
" The chorus is as follows: When the lilies bloom in France again And the fields are white as snow Then our work will be done And I'll come back to the one Who'll be waiting for me I know Then we'll all see the silver lining That will soon pierce the dark clouds through When the lilies bloom in France again, I'll come back to you, sweetheart
