Key Requirements for Higher Google Page Rank

Since readers have continued to be curious about Google Page Rank (GPR), I decided to take up an assignment for myself and write GPR Part I...

The Hologram of a Hydrangea

H is for Hologram. Hologram is a photograph. It gives a three dimensional view of the object photographed. The word is derived from Greek. Holo means 'whole', and gram means 'message.'

A few days back I took my mother to therapy, and while waiting for the massage tables I saw these beautiful hydrangeas in front of the office. They lured me and tempted me to go after some holograms.

I am taking the easy way out this week, because both words are not new to me, but do feel guilty about the promise I made to myself. So here is an H word that I probably learned in biology but could use a refresher: hypothalamus. The hypothalamus forms the floor of the third cavity or ventricle in the brain. Below and connected to it is the stalk of the pituitary gland. The hypothalamus helps regulate metabolism or body functioning.
Thanks for stopping by today.

  3. Hypothalamus is a pretty significant part of the brain. I'm no medic but I do know it can upset the balance of one's nature if it is damaged. Very nicely done hydrangeas.

  4. Ah, I'm learning a new word today, though I don't know when I'm going to use it :-)

    Sorry for the lack of visiting, but school starts and there are million other things to do..

  5. I was watching the cartoon Arthur this a.m., and there was a rock band all the kids wanted to see who turned out to be nothing but holograms!

  9. The H words you mentioned here are known to me... I just don't remember to use them in my daily conversation. For the Holograms... I just use photos, pics, pix, pictures and snapshots... for the hydrangeas... i just call it flower hahaha because it is easier to say so with hypothalamus. And just thinking of those words give me a headache. hahaha. But thanks for sharing... it's nice to be reminded.

  11. I felt so clever I knew what the words meant before I looked at the meanings.
    I haven't been around lately, so I guess I've missed A to G?

  12. @Tumblewords: Hologram is such a forgotten word in photography. We don't use it enough.

  14. @ChrisJYes, the word is so powerful isn't it? I think it is almost a must know for us all.

  15. @MumsyI think you will probably use hydrangea, and perhaps holograms in your photography Mumsy.

  16. @Roger Owen GreenInteresting, I love how some of the future movies make holograms and use them as the "mighty" one.

  17. @Olive Cooper Nurses and doctors are so great with vocabulary. There are so many that normal people don't know about.

  24. Well, your post today is most educational!! I love hydrangeas but my favorites are the colors ranging from violet to the mauve colors. I seldom see holograms but find them quite interesting. As for my hypothalmus...it just does its job without my ever paying much attention to it - as do my other body organs, thankfully!!!
