A rather nice thought for the day...

Did you know that the word 'polite' comes from the jewellery trade? When diamonds or jewels are said to be cut and polished to their absolute flawless best, they're said to be 'polite'. What a lovely thing to aspire to be - a flawless, polished diamond when you're being polite.

No. Seriously? Well fancy that. No wonder good manners seem to be such a rare and precious thing these days! t.x

Kitschen Pink - Welcome to the blog and well put. I was quite fascinated too - any other little gems I come across, I intend on posting too.
