(MB: t. 16.8; 1. 58'8"; b. 11'8"; s. 12.0 k.)

Zillah (SP-2804)—a wooden-hulled motorboat built in 1903 by Charles Clarke & Co. at Galveston, Tex., and rebuilt in 1913 by the same firm—was acquired by the Navy from that same company in June 1918. Though there is no record of the date on which the motorboat was commissioned, she was assigned to the 8th Naval District and served with the naval port guard at Galveston for the remainder of World War I. Zillah was placed out of commission on 13 December 1918. Her name was struck from the Navy list on that same day, and she was simultaneously returned to her owner.

The name Zillah comes from the not so very positive verb צלל :

There appear to be at least two verbs צלל (salal): one means to ring like a bell, and the other means to be or become dark. How or whether these two relate isn't clear and ultimately up to anyone's poetic palate.

Noun צלצל (silsal) means a whirring or buzzing. The exact same noun צלצל (silsal) describes a fish-spear or harpoon and the highly similar noun צלצל (selasal) denotes a whirring locust. Plural nouns צלצלים (selselim) and מצלתים (mesiltayim) denote musical percussion instruments such as cymbals. Noun מצלה (mesilla) means bell.

Frequently used noun צל (sel) means shade or shadow and is often employed to describe the transitoriness of life (a mere shadow). Noun צלמות (salmawet) literally means the shadow of death and denotes a distressful and deep darkness.

A possible third identical verb צלל (salal) means to sink or submerge, although it may very well derive from the previous.

She comes from a large family.

She was a prize-fighter for numerous years and amassed some fame, and met Marlene, Daphne and other fighters there. She left the Prize-fighting circles under mysterious circumstances, possibly because she was tired of the corruption in it.

According to her own words, she is quite amiable outside of a fight but quite bloodthirsty inside of a fight. Barnaby admits to be terrified of her all the time.

She tries not to kill people if she can avoid it.

Schools [ edit | edit source ]

The Zillah School District [1] is a small rural district of approximately 1250 students, housed in four buildings in the mid-Yakima Valley. Zillah is one of the smallest districts in area in Yakima County (estimated 44 square miles). The estimated population of the school district boundaries is 4000.

Zillah is a bedroom community to Yakima. Business and industry in our district boundaries are: diversified agriculture (including fruit tree orchards, vineyards, dairies, row crops, forage crops, cattle feed lot, vegetable truck gardening, etc.) and agriculture related service industries including several diversified fruit packing and shipping operations, wineries, agriculture management and consulting, veterinarian, and USDA Soil Conservation Service. The Zillah School District is one of the top three employers in the community.

The muskellunge (Esox masquinongy), also known as muskelunge, muscallonge, milliganong, or maskinonge (and often abbreviated "muskie" or "musky"), is a species of large, relatively uncommon freshwater fish of North America. The muskellunge is the largest member of the pike family, Esocidae. The common name comes from the Ojibwa word maashkinoozhe, meaning "ugly pike", by way of French masque allongé (modified from the Ojibwa word by folk etymology), "elongated face."[citation needed] The French common name is masquinongé or maskinongé.

The muskellunge is known by a wide variety of trivial names including Ohio muskellunge, Great Lakes muskellunge, barred muskellunge, Ohio River pike, Allegheny River pike, jack pike, unspotted muskellunge and the Wisconsin muskellunge.

Caution: Discretion Advised Adult Themes

Please read these wikis and investigate the massive amount of information available.
It's quite educational, especially considering that almost no one knows anything about these topics yet they have everything to do with our daily lives in countless ways.

Important to note Sofia in these translations:

Safia/Saphia (Arabic), (Persian), (Urdu)
Safiye (Turkish)

Hagia Sophia (from the Greek: Ἁγία Σοφία, "Holy Wisdom" Latin: Sancta Sophia or Sancta Sapientia Turkish: Ayasofya) is a former Greek Orthodox patriarchal basilica (church), later an imperial mosque, and now a museum in Istanbul, Turkey. From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, it served as an Eastern Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarchate of Constantinople,[1] except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.[2]

The Church was dedicated to the Wisdom of God, the Logos, the second person of the Holy Trinity,[3] its patronal feast taking place on 25 December, the commemoration of the Birth of the incarnation of the Logos in Christ.[3] Although sometimes referred to as Sancta Sophia (as though it were named after Saint Sophia), sophia being the phonetic spelling in Latin of the Greek word for wisdom, its full name in Greek is Ναός τῆς Ἁγίας τοῦ Θεοῦ Σοφίας, "Shrine of the Holy Wisdom of God".[4][5] Famous in particular for its massive dome, it is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture[6] and is said to have "changed the history of architecture."[7]

Horseshoe Crab anatomy too?

There are also some Oars, so you row the water and you also row the air with the fan.
Flagellum = Whip - Antenna - Lash

Funny how "Whip" and "Lash" are both nouns and verbs that you do with them.
Lashing (ropework)

By the way, I almost forgot:
Meet "Lucy":

Esox is a genus of freshwater fish, the only living genus in the family Esocidae—the esocids which were endemic to North America, Europe and Eurasia during the Paleogene through present.[2]

The type species is E. lucius, the northern pike. The species of this genus are known as pike and pickerel, and in heraldry they are usually called lucy.[3][4]

So that's why you have to pay 'coin' to cross the "River of the Dead", it's a Pike (tollroad).

In the Symposium, Plato draws a distinction between a philosopher and a sage (sophos, σοφός). The difference is explained through the concept of love, which lacks the object it seeks. Therefore the philosopher (literally lover of wisdom in Greek) does not have the wisdom he or she seeks. The sage, on the other hand, does not love or seek wisdom, because he already has wisdom. According to Plato, there are two categories of beings who do not do philosophy:

Gods and sages, because they are wise
senseless people, because they think they are wise.

The position of the philosopher is between these two groups. The philosopher is not wise but, aware that he is not wise, seeks wisdom, and loves wisdom. This distinction between the philosopher and the sage played an important part in Stoic philosophy that developed after Plato.[1]

Forgot to list this, about the word Faure

Archimedes? We could spend a whole week just reading about this one guy and all of the related information.
I prefer to jump around and come back when it's needed for whatever specific train of thought I find myself on.

The common insect Issus was discovered to have actual "gears" in it's legs:

They are the first animals discovered to possess a locomotive gear mechanism.[1] Prior to their discovery, it was assumed only humans had invented gears.[2] The gears in the insect legs however, have nothing to do with power ratios, but only with synchronising the action of the jumping legs.

. has in its juvenile form hind leg joints that form two 180-degree, helix-shaped strips with twelve fully interlocking spur type gear teeth.

So we have grips of interesting terminology everywhere here.
Spurs, Worm, Crown, Sun and Moon, etc.

These gears represent being crushed between the Rock and the Hard place, Catch 22

So what does mechanics, sailing, farming, cooking, etc have in common?

6. Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail

The Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail features wineries on beautiful vineyards and winery owners tending to visitors in the tasting rooms. This particular wine trail is referred to often as the region’s “green” tour through the wineries of the Yakima Valley AVA. The trail takes visitors through some of the area’s best vineyard and orchard land, with each and every winery provides its own unique setting for sipping a glass or two of wine. No reservations are needed to stop by the tasting rooms of these wineries, which vary in architectural style from modern Northwest to traditional European.

Notice of Partial Opening

Beginning Wed Oct 7, 2020 until further notice, Blowing Rocks Preserve is partially open to the public, with a number of restrictions in place for the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and the community.


As of February 10, 2021 our west parking lot and Lagoon Loop trail are now open to the public. The Hawley Education Center, restroom facilities, and other west side trails remain closed until further notice. (Nearest public restrooms are located at Coral Cove Beach Park, approximately one mile south on Beach Road.)

See more closure and protocol details under the Visit tab.


After five decades of protecting Florida’s great places, The Nature Conservancy considers Blowing Rocks Preserve one of our proudest achievements. This peaceful, barrier island sanctuary is a well-known model for large-scale, native coastal habitat restoration.

The ecosystems found here are disappearing fast from many Florida islands, and a number of endangered plants and animals call this special place home—including rare loggerhead, green and leatherback sea turtles.

The preserve was named for its rocky Anastasia limestone shoreline—the largest on the Atlantic coast. During extreme high tides and after winter storms, seas break against the rocks and force plumes of saltwater up to 50 feet skyward. It’s an impressive sight. What exactly are the Blowing Rocks?



Jupiter Island, Hobe Sound, Florida

Turn left (north) on U.S. 1 to Jupiter Inlet
After crossing bridge, immediately turn right onto South Beach Rd. (CR707)
Follow South Beach Rd. for 2 miles. Preserve sign is on the right. Parking located ½ mile ahead.


Safety Protocols

TNC strongly recommends that visitors observe social distancing at all times please keep at least 6 feet (2 meters) apart from other visitors, staff and volunteers. TNC strongly recommends that face coverings be worn in the parking lots and trails leading to the beach. Face coverings may be removed once visitors are on the beach, while ensuring that social distancing is observed.

Preserve Access and Parking

As of February 10, 2021, both the east and west parking lots are open to the public. The east parking lot is limited to 17 vehicles (in addition to one accessible parking space) at any given time. Street parking is not permitted, per Town of Jupiter Island policy.

For more information, please email [email protected] or call 561-744-6668.


The preserve visitor fee is temporarily waived.

Preserve Guidelines

Help protect the preserve’s native habitats and wildlife!

  • Pets, alcohol, spearfishing, and picnics are not allowed.
  • Do not collect or release live plants or animals. Do not collect Anastasia limestone rock or other natural resources.
  • Drones, photo shoots, and video shoots are not permitted.

When the Rocks Blow

The beach and ocean conditions at Blowing Rocks Preserve are always changing and might look different each time you visit! Typically, summer months bring calm, clear waters that are excellent for swimming and snorkeling. Winter months tend to bring rough seas and larger waves that cause the “blowing” action, when large waves crash up against the rocks. If you want to time your visit to observe this impressive sight, there are two factors to consider: Is the sea rough or calm? Is it high tide or low tide? Your best chance to observe the “blowing rocks” is to visit on a day with rough seas at high tide. The time of high tide is different each day – you can click here to view the current tide schedule. Please note that our hours of operation do not change depending on the tides.

Plan for an Eco-Friendly Visit

There are many ways to be a friend of nature while exploring the outdoors. Here are some tips to having an environmentally responsible visit.

  • Bring a reusable drink bottle(s).
  • Pack snacks in reusable containers or bags.
  • Charge your camera so you can capture interesting sights, taking only memories and leaving nature intact.
  • Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a hat, SPF clothing, sunglasses, and/or reef-safe sunscreen. (Learn more about reef-safe sunscreen and other ways to #RespectOurReef.)
  • Pack in, pack out – if you do have waste, be sure to collect it all to properly dispose of it before leaving or once you have returned home. Bins for recycling and the landfill are available onsite.
  • Keep a safe distance from wildlife. (It can be dangerous to wildlife if they are fed, touched, chased, or crowded.)
  • Have fun at the beach but be sure to fill any holes and flatten any sandcastles when you’re done to prevent dangers to sea turtles.
  • Before you leave, rinse or brush-off yourself and gear to prevent species from traveling to new habitats.

Things to See

Wonder what you’ll see here? Native habitats—including beach dune, coastal strand, swamp and tropical hardwood hammock—are flush with red, black and white mangroves, gumbo limbo trees, Jamaica caper, sea grape, railroad vine, sea oats and much more. Healthy seagrass along the lagoon harbors urchin, blue claw crab and the endangered Florida manatee.

Sea turtles returning to nest on the north beach include loggerhead, green and leatherback. You may spot a number of shorebirds such as the brown pelican, osprey and least tern, as well as fiddler crab and a wide variety of small marine creatures.

Seasonal Wildlife and Plants


Ospreys, which can be observed year-round, are especially plentiful during the winter months. Palm, pine and other migrating warblers enjoy the mild winter here, as do a few ruby-throated hummingbirds. The coral bean produces its bright, red tubular flowers, while the wild poinsettia is also in bloom.


The unusual necklace pod blooms, and plentiful beach sunflowers show their bright yellow blossoms. Butterflies, such as great Southern whites, Cassius blues and skippers flutter about the preserve.


The mile of Atlantic Ocean beachfront provides important nesting habitat for imperiled sea turtles. At night, female turtles come ashore, climb above the high tide line, dig a hole with their flippers and lay their eggs in nests of sand. On many summer mornings, turtle tracks are clearly visible in the sand. To spot them, look for horizontal tracks in the sand that look like they could have been made by a small bulldozer or tractor tires.

The rocks and worm-rock reefs offshore offer great opportunities for snorkeling or scuba diving as well as occasional sea turtle sightings.

Please note that sea turtles and their nests are protected by federal as well as state and local laws. If you are fortunate enough to see a nesting sea turtle or hatchlings, please do not touch or otherwise harass them or their nests.


A variety of birds migrate through the area, including warblers, offshore pelagic birds, hawks and falcons. Our abundant sea grapes are fruiting, turning out grape-like clusters of berries.
