If you are from the South, it is likely that you are familiar with persimmons. Persimmons are a fascinating fruit that grows wild throughout much of the South. When completely ripe, the pulp is sweet and delicious, but when not ripe, it will turn your mouth inside out!!! Pictured here are the steps involved from harvesting the ripe persimmons, to “pulping” them, and eventually turning them into delicious “persimmons balls” or pudding. I’m really unsure if this is just peculiar to the South or if persimmons also grow in the wild in the more northern states. I can tell you the finished product is delicious!!!

Mother of pearl, also known as nacre, comes in different kinds of natural colors, but is always bleached and beautifully dyed for decorative uses. We will learn more about the MOP buttons below. About MOP Buttons MOP buttons are a kind of shell buttons that are made from an inorganic-organic composite material produced as an inner shell layer by a specific kind of mollusks.
Abalone and pearl oysters also give the mother of pearl appearance from their shells. MOP buttons are extremely resilient and very strong. These buttons have been used in tailored, high-quality shirt dresses for centuries. They provide that extra elegant touch you always look for in high-quality shirts and their semi-brilliant surface blends with a fade white tint bringing out an incredibly beautiful look on your shirts.

Etymology[ edit ] The taxonomic term Bivalvia was first used by Linnaeus in the 10th edition of his Systema Naturae in to refer to animals having shells composed of two valves. The name “bivalve” is derived from the Latin bis, meaning “two”, and valvae, meaning “leaves of a door”. Some, such as the cockles , have shells that are nearly globular; cockles can jump by bending and straightening their foot.
Others, such as the razor clams , are burrowing specialists with elongated shells and a powerful foot adapted for rapid digging. The shipworms , in the family Teredinidae have greatly elongated bodies, but their shell valves are much reduced and restricted to the anterior end of the body, where they function as scraping organs that permit the animal to dig tunnels through wood. Bivalve shell Near the hinge of the shell is the umbo , often a rounded, knob-like protuberance usually surrounding the beak.
The umbo generally and the beak specifically represent the oldest portion of the shell, with extra material gradually being laid down along the margins on the opposite sides. The hinge point or line is the dorsal region of the shell, and the lower, curved margin is the ventral region. The anterior or front of the shell is where the byssus when present and foot are located, and the posterior of the shell is where the siphons are located.
In bivalves, the mantle lobes secrete the valves, and the mantle crest secretes the whole hinge mechanism consisting of ligament , byssus threads where present , and teeth. This line known as the pallial line exists because, parallel to the opening edge of the bivalve’s shell, the mantle is attached to the shell by a continuous narrow row of minute mantle retractor muscles. The function of these small muscles is to pull the loose edge of the mantle up out of harm’s way when this is necessary because of minor predation attempts.
In many bivalves, the mantle edges fuse at the posterior end of the shell to form two siphons , through one of which water is inhaled, and the other expelled, for respiration and suspension feeding. This is visible on the inside of the valve as an indentation on the pallial line which is known as the pallial sinus.
Metal These buttons were made from a variety of pure metals and alloys. Though you may find an occasional sterling, gold or pewter button, most metal buttons were made from brass and copper. CC- if these buttons are one- piece they can be cleaned with water and dried quickly.
Heroes and Villains – A little light reading. Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many.
Special thanks is given to Shirley Wiesmann who has compiled this data and we hope you will find it helpful. Silver Definitions Pure Silver has a brilliant white metallic luster. It is very ductile and malleable below gold and palladium one of the platinum metals. In order for Pure Silver to be hard enough and suitable for arts and crafts including jewelry, it must be alloyed with other metallic components which helps to make it hard enough and suitable for crafting.
Designers have crafted bead chains, chokers, necklaces, earrings, pendants, rings, bracelets, hair clips, brooches and jewelry sets using Pure Silver and an alloy additive. Products that have been crafted out of Pure Silver with alloys are ecclesiastical of the church and domestic plate, flatware, jewelry, buttons, buckles, boxes, toilet articles to name a few.

This story is an exclusive chapter excerpt from MATE: Become the Man Women Want. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…until you climb into his skin and walk around in it. Not when it comes to sex and dating and women, anyway. Why does this matter? As a man, it is impossible to be better at mating until you understand the subjective experience of a woman, because it is fundamentally different than yours in many ways.
If you can account for those differences, you will be well on your way to increased success because most men spend zero time thinking about this. The differences start from the very beginning, at our deepest primal levels. When a man interacts with a woman, his greatest fear is sexual rejection and humiliation. This causes him to spend as much time and energy if not more on defensive strategies to protect against rejection as he does on mating strategies to attract women.
Women are totally different. In these interactions, they are not much afraid of rejection. Rather, when a woman interacts with a man, she is afraid of being physically harmed or sexually assaulted. You are probably perfectly safe.

Tinned vegetable stew ration, named after the manufacturer. The inscription on the back of the MM says for bravery in the field, and some soldiers maintained that the Maconachie ration see above was so terrible that only a brave man would eat it and thus be awarded a medal for doing so.

To that end I hope this workshop will further that interest. I invite you to ask questions and learn to date buttons as to their era, material and value. Along the way it is my hope to save valuable buttons from being used for craft projects and to encourage others in the collecting of buttons.
buttons were favored for both military officers garments and civilian men of standing. A base of wood, horn, ivory, or bone was capped with a layer of silver, usually plain.
