PostSubject: The practice of Swathing//needs to make a come-back   Wed Dec 19, 2012 12:48 am

Greetings:

http://history-world.org/Dancing%20In%20The%20Middle%20Ages.htm

The black death, which originated in Central China about 1333, appeared
on the Mediterranean littoral in 1347, ravaged the island of Cyprus, made the
circuit of the Mediterranean countries, spread throughout Europe northward as
far as Iceland, and in 1357 appeared in Russia, where it seems to have been
checked by the barrier of the Caucasus.

Scarce had its effects subsided, and the graves of its 25,000,000 victims
were hardly closed, when it was followed by an epidemic of the dance of St.
John, or St. Vitus, which like a demoniacal plague appeared in Germany in
1347, and spread over the whole empire and throughout the neighboring
countries. The dance was characterized by wild leaping, furious screaming,
and foaming at the mouth, which gave to the individuals affected all the
appearance of insanity.

The epidemic was not confined to particular localities, but was
propagated by the sight of the sufferers, and for over two centuries excited
the astonishment of contemporaries. The Netherlands and France were equally
affected; in Italy the disease became known as tarantism, it being supposed to
proceed from the bite of the tarantula, a venomous spider. Like the St.
Vitus' dance in Germany, tarantism spread by sympathy, increasing in severity
as it took a wider range; the chief cure was music, which seemed to furnish
magical means for exorcising the malady of the patients.

Yes, Titus, I know what "swathing" is. My question was : What has "swathing" to do with the article on "the black death" that was posted underneath that title ...?

Yayyyy! It worked!

Actually I had already been to my signature and it was there and I could delete it only by typing over it. I don't want a signature at the moment so I didn't know what to do. Then, after Benjie mentioned about checking my signature, I tried again ... same thing. Mad Then I had the bright idea of typing over it ... guess what? Space-space-space-space ... clever Rainbow sunny

that's what you get when you hit the enter key..... it's an old typewriter term, when you hit that on typewriters the print carriage, or the paper carriage would return to the left side of your paper.

Now days the cursor just goes to the next line..... it's sometimes called a line return in main frame computer talk.


I guess I'm showing my age...

Greetings:

There are reasons why toga-parties are so favored,hormones are freely flowing to pick up sugar-amplification.Our
teenagers should be in tight clothing when attending dances.Aside,the table-stretcher at my gym told me he has to
wear tight underwear.
