Jester s- Not the Fools You May Think

woman1
A jester or fool was a type of entertainer and archetype in Medieval Europe, similar to a modern clown or comedian. With their colorful, eccentric outfits and repertoire of juggling, acrobatics and wit, jesters were a favorite of commoners and noblemen alike. Jesters were commonly travelling minstrels and acrobats, performing at village fairs and festivals. Those who were especially lucky or talented would be hired as court jesters, becoming a regular fixture of a noble or royal court. They would perform tricks, sing fables and satirize daily court life in front of the upper class. Court jesters were granted special privileges, and were allowed to speak in a way that other commoners were forbidden to. With this license to offend, court jesters served as a “voice of the people” in a culture with rigid social barriers. A court jester could openly mock and satirize their social betters without consequence, and were often favored by their lords as trusted advisors who could always speak their minds. Queen Elizabeth I is recorded as having scolding her court jester for not being harsh enough on her. A successful jester had to be skilled in both physical acts and possess a quick wit and knack for singing and storytelling. Jester performances were usually a mix of juggling, acrobatics and magic combined with fables, songs, jokes and political commentaries. There was no fixed costume for a jester, but costume usually involved loud, motley colours, bells and baubles and a hood with tr...

rand7
Hair removal treatments are no walk in the park. They are obviously slightly painful, but having them done by experts can turn your hair removal appointments into anticipated spa dates and well worth the money you pay for them. With the number of spas and hair removal clinics in Brisbane, it is difficult to choose a clinic and expect the best results, not unless the clinic has the best reputation around. If you are searching for a clinic randomly, you could end up going to a clinic who will give you subpar service and and results that are below what you expected. How Hair Removal is Done Hair removal treatments use laser pulses to kill the hair by focusing the light on the pigment which absorbs the light and causes the death of the hair follicle. This means that you get a permanent, hair-free, smooth skin, with no need to use temporary hair removal products and procedures such as depilatories and waxing just to get the same results. Hair removal is the removal of hair from various parts of the body, not just on the obvious places such as the legs and back. You can also have hair removal done on your face, your chest and other places where hair should not be.

How To Sell My Car In Gold Coast: A Few Tips To Help You Make The Most Out Of It

Leatherman Pulse multi-tool, shot on black.
One of the questions that many people have when trying to sell their cars is "how can I sell my car Gold Coast and get the most out of it?" If you are in the process of selling a car, it’s important that you approach this issue with the seriousness it deserves if you are to profit maximally from it. In order to do so, there are a number of things you might need to keep in mind before actually starting the process of selling the car. Some of these include: Be careful about repairs A general rule of thumb is that in order for you to sell the car quickly and for more, you should try to have it repaired before putting it on the market. However, this is not always as simple as it sounds. When thinking of doing repairs, it’s always wise to find out whether this will result in any tangible benefits or not. The best way to do this is by finding an estimate of how much you can sell the car for when it’s all fixed, and then compare the profits you make from this with if you decided to sell the car as is. If you end up spending too much on the repairs, the resulting car might be more difficult to sell since it will be more expensive, and you may end up making less from it overall. Try to have the car valued by a professional When you are thinking of putting the car on sale, you should try to find out how much its worth is. One of the major mistakes that many people make when selling cars especially for the first time is putting an arbitrary price tag on the car. In many cases, doing thi...

Rainwater Harvesting – Water Tanks for Rainwater Collection

woman4
In Australia drought and water conservation are of constant concern. We are a dry continent; in fact we’re the driest inhabited continent on Earth. Every drop of water is precious, and investing in rainwater harvesting is of benefit to both individual households and our nation as a whole. Rainwater harvesting simply means the collection of rainwater for re-use, instead of allowing it to run off into the ground. The rain water collected has a myriad of uses; gardening, irrigation, water features, livestock, washing, bathing and heating. With minimal treatment, rainwater can also be used as drinking water, and is just as safe as the water that comes out of your tap. Just as solar power provides free energy, rainwater harvesting provides free water. Not only will it reduce your utility bill, it increases the sustainability of our reservoir and groundwater supplies.  Rainwater harvesting means that you can bypass water restrictions to some extent, using your own supply instead of a limited supply of main water. Not only is Australia a land of droughts, in many areas floods are a constant concern. Without rainwater harvesting, almost all flood water is wasted as it washes away and becomes contaminated. Not only does rainwater harvesting find use from this abundance of water, it reduces the burden on storm drains and other water safety measures. Domestically, the most common method of rainwater harvesting are roof catchment systems. Rain that falls on the roof is siphoned off v...
