Power Plant Men Learned Themselves Proper English

Power Plant Men

The electricians on our crew must have heard Gary Wehunt say the phrase “…of a morning” a dozen times before someone brought it to his attention.  I think it was Andy Tubbs while we were sitting in our Monday Morning Safety Meeting.  He said, “What did you just say?”  Gary repeated himself,  “I do ‘such and such’ of a morning.”  “Of a morning?  What does that mean?”  Gary asked, “What?  Of a Morning.  Isn’t that right?”

It’s true that there is a certain “Power Plant Speak” that seems unique to people that work in factories, power plants, line crews and other such situations.  I can speak only for the power plants where I worked.  I would describe the type of speech as “colorful”.  Not in a vulgar sort of way, but in a flowery way.

Power Plant Men in general didn’t curse as you may see them depicted in movies…

I looked at all friends, and did not find a better friend than safeguarding the tongue.
I thought about all the dresses but did not find a better dress than piety.
I thought about all kinds of wealth, but did not find a better wealth than contentment in a little.
I thought of all sorts of good deeds but did not find a better deed than offering good advice.
I looked at all types of sustenance, but did not find a better sustenance than patience.

Bütün dostları gezdim, dili tutmaktan iyisini görmedim.
Her çeşit elbiseyi gördüm, iffet ve sakınmaktan daha iyi elbise görmedim.
Bütün malları gördüm, kanaatten daha iyisini görmedim.
Her çeşit yemeği gördüm, tattım, sabırdan lezzetlisini görmedim.
Bütün iyilikleri gördüm, nasihatten iyisini görmedim.

Your friends are three and your enemies are three. Your friends are: your friend, the friend of your friend, and the enemy of your enemy. Your enemies are: your enemy, the enemy of your friend, and the friend of your enemy.

Dostların da düşmanların da üç grubtur: Dostların ;Dostun ,Dostunun dostu, Düşmanının düşmanıdır. Düşmanların: Düşmanın, Dostunun düşmanı, Düşmanının dostudur.

― Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu-Talib

A brother is like gold and a friend is like diamond. If gold cracks you can melt it and make it just like it was before. If a diamond cracks, it can never be like it was before.”

Bir kardeş altın,bir dost ise elmas gibidir. Altın kırılırsa yeniden eritir, eski haline çevirirsin. Fakat elmas kırıldımı hiç bir zaman eski haline dönmez.

― Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu-Talib

First Night Design | Rachel Strong by Léon Bakst 1924 #Cards #Prints

Rachel Strong by Léon Bakst 1924 © First Night Vintage Rachel Strong by Léon Bakst 1924 © First Night Vintage

The Russian designer and painter Léon Bakst (1866–1924), born Lev Samuilovich Rozenberg, is more generally known for his luscious costume and set designs for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes as witness Schéhérazade. When I discovered his magnificent portrait of Rachel Strong, the future Countess Henri de Buazhelen, on Wikimedia, I was entranced and knew I had to sell it on First Night Vintage.  What I wouldn’t do to be dressed thus — such elegance. If I had the means and the money, I would get gifted photographer James Hall of Just Add Pictures, whose recreations of classics I have enjoyed, to recreate this portrait with me and my dog! I can dream.

Who was Rachel Strong? Apart from marrying Count Henri de Buazhelen, I have been able to find nothing of note about either of them, which is…
