If you want to catch up with our most famous songster, the nightingale, just visit Minsmere at the end of April, or early May, and stand on the edge of the car park. You'll soon hear the dulcet tones of the poets' favourite bird.
-Stephen Moss, "Birdwatch", The Guardian, October 23, 2000

--Quote of the Day: I'd never met a woman I considered as intelligent as me. That sounds bigheaded, but every woman I met was either a dolly-chick, or a sort of screwed-up intellectual chick. And of course, in the field I was in, I didn't meet many intellectual people anyway. I always had this dream of meeting an artist, an artist girl who would be like me. And I thought it was a myth, but then I met Yoko and that was it.
-John Lennon

--French Word of the Day: jewelry (noun) les bijoux (mpl);
(eg) la bijouterie f;
(transl) (in shop, workshop)

a piece of jewelry
