2. 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
3. Baeometra of lily & sapphire
Baeometra is a genus in the family Colchicaceae containing a single species, Baeometra uniflora.
It is native to South Africa, where it is commonly called beetle lily due to the dark markings on the tepals. The genus was erected when the British botanist Richard Salisbury described the species "Baeometra columellaris" in 1812, although the plant had already been discovered, described and painted in 1793 by the Austrian botanist Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin under the name Melanthium uniflorum. The correct name for the species was thus settled in 1941 by the South African botanist Gwendolyn Lewis to be Baeometra uniflora (Salisb.
The epithet means "single-flowered", which is contradicted by the fact that the stem usually bears at least two yellowish flowers. The species is related to the genus Wurmbea, which is present in southern Africa and Australia, and is known to be a poisonous plant containing the alkaloid colchicine. It has been introduced to Australia, where it is considered to be an invasive and unwanted addition to the local flora.
4. The Revisionaries of lily & sapphire
The Revisionaries is a 2012 documentary film about the re-election of Don McLeroy, the former chairman of the Texas Board of Education. The film also details how the Texas Board's decisions on textbook content influence textbooks across the nation and affect the American culture war.
The Revisionaries was directed by Scott Thurman and produced by Silver Lining Films, Magic Hour Productions and Naked Edge Films. The film generated a great deal of buzz prior to its premiere on April 20, 2012 at the Tribeca Film Festival. Texas Monthly reported that "the film received rave reviews after its Tribeca premiere.
" The Revisionaries went on to win the Festival's Special Jury Prize. During the awards presentation, Michael Moore stated "I hope every American sees this film," and called The Revisionaries "a must-see film for anyone concerned about enforced ignorance and intolerance, and for those who still believe in science and in Thomas Jefferson." On July 18, 2012, Kino Lorber acquired all North American rights to The Revisionaries.
The film premiered theatrically on October 5, 2012 in Dallas, Texas, and the Public Broadcasting Service's (PBS) Independent Lens aired an abridged version of the film in late January 2013. The Revisionaries went on to win the 2013 PBS Independent Lens Audience Award and 2014 duPont Award for excellence in broadcast journalism.
Pyeatte-Mason Cemetery of lily & sapphire
The Pyeatte-Mason Cemetery is a small historic cemetery at the junction of Waterside and Lily Streets on the west side of Maumelle, Arkansas. It occupies a small wooded lot, and has ten marked graves. It contains graves of some of Pulaski County's earliest settlers, the Pyeatte and Carnahan families.
They settled this area in 1812, calling it Crystal Hill. The only dated graves in the cemetery are marked 1818 and 1883. They were led by the brothers James Pyeatt, a farmer, and Jacob Pyeatt, who operated a ferry on the Arkansas River.
The first Protestant services held in Arkansas were conducted in 1812 in the home of James Pyeatt by the Reverend John Carnahan of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. The original settlement, called Pyeattstown, grew to 150 people by 1819. Pyeatte township was formed in 1823.
James Pyeatt died in 1833 and was buried near his land in a small cemetery that is now near the Maumelle Country Club's golf course. The township of Maumelle was formed in 1842. It was composed of two sections: Little Maumelle and Big Maumelle.
The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
6. Edgar Vincent of lily & sapphire
Edgar Vincent (13 March 1918, Hamburg 26 June 2008, New York City) was an American publicist and actor of German birth.
He began his career appearing in small roles in Hollywood films during the 1940s but his German accent prevented him from moving further with his career. In 1949 he joined a New York publishing firm with his first client being the opera singer Ezio Pinza. He went on to specialize in being a publicist for opera singers, helping shape and forward the careers of major stars like Lily Pons, Anna Moffo, Eleanor Steber, Jussi Bjrling, George London, Leonard Warren, Mirella Freni, Shirley Verrett, Cecilia Bartoli, Dolora Zajick, Dorothy Kirsten, Eileen Farrell, Birgit Nilsson, Rise Stevens and Salvatore Licitra.
He had a particularly close friendship and relationship with the late Beverly Sills and was also a close friend and adviser to Plcido Domingo in addition to being his publicist. Vincent also worked for Mikhail Baryshnikov and a handful of musicians other than opera singers, including conductors Erich Leinsdorf, Leopold Stokowski and Georg Solti; the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich; and the violinist Isaac Stern. He also worked frequently with his colleague, fellow publicist Margaret Carson.
7. 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).

9. Goeiemorgen, morgen of lily & sapphire
"Goeiemorgen, morgen" ("Good morning, morning") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, performed in Dutch by Jacques Raymond and Lily Castel. The song was performed tenth on the night (following the United Kingdom's Clodagh Rodgers with "Jack In The Box" and preceding Italy's Massimo Ranieri with "L'amore un attimo").
At the close of voting, it had received 68 points, placing 14th in a field of 18. The song was originally intended to be performed by Nicole & Hugo, who would represent Belgium at the 1973 contest with "Baby, Baby", however shortly prior to their departure to Dublin for the contest, Nicole fell ill with jaundice and the duo were unable to attend. As an indirect consequence of the late cancellation, "Goeiemorgen, morgen" was recorded by both duos and Nicole & Hugo even released the song in a French-language version, then entitled "La vie chante".
The song itself is an up-beat number, dealing with the simple joy of waking up in the morning. It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 1972 Contest by Serge & Christine Ghisoland performing " la folie ou pas du tout".
