Word of the Day
- A perennial plant, Tanacetum Balsamita, of the natural order Compositæ, a native of the south of Europe, long cultivated in gardens for the agreeable fragrance of its leaves.
- Leaves used sparingly (because of bitter overtones) in sauces and soups and stuffings.
This word is Middle English in origin, and ultimately comes from the Latin 'costum,' cost, plus 'marie,' Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Quote of the DayIt is only by introducing the young to great literature, drama and music, and to the excitement of great science that we open to them the possibilities that lie within the human spirit
- enable them to see visions and dream dreams.
- Eric Anderson
