BARBER-2 little bits from this entry. one, that during Henry VIII,it was decreed that barbers should be restricted to do bloodletting and drawing teeth(extractions?), no more extra stuff.
and it explains the barber 'pole'. the poles were to have a pole with a basin at the bottom, which symbolizes the bloodletting bowl. the red stripe symbolizing the bandaging around the arm in bleeding.
BARD-welsh, ancient celtic poets.
BARHAM, Richard Harris aka Thomas Ingoldsby 1788-1845 celebrated humorist. i am only including him cause his entry was nice and he has been lost to history. i think.
due to an arm injury, he became studious and went into the church. he had always been a man of fun, so the church was a surprise. he wrote several humourous tails and had several books. and as it says in entry-intolerant of all that was mean, base, and false.
i find him worthy.
BARNAVE, Antoine Pierre Joseph Marie-b 1761-1793 great orator and lawyer. early participant in the 1st french revolution. he proposed that the french have 2 chamers of parliament. i had been just reading an oration by Beaconsfield, who had brought up the fact that 2 houses are needed. while escorting the royals to thier end at the guillitine, he developed sympathy for them and he eventually was executed by same in 1793.
i have been reading the definative diary of anne frank in the lower library(bathroom) and just finished it. i really feel some of her thought related to me. and it is such a good thing her diary survived if she didn't. and it helped a little at this time of grief.
shit happens and then you die.

BAMBOO-they had correctly classified bamboo as a grass. not much except all the uses the asians did with bamboo.
BAHMIAN-talks about the caves, that they wereoccupied then(i forgot if they still are). the big buddahs were called colossal standing idols. mentions a smaller one than the 2nd biggest, the inferior one being in the valley. the sleeping buddah?
not called buddahs, but does bring up buddahs in speculation of the 'idols'.

BAATIERE/BARETTIERE, John Phillip b 1721-d 1740
young genius. at 5 could speak french, latin, and dutch and could read greek. he then learned hebrew. in 3 years translated the hebrew bible into latin and french and could easily go from french/latin back into hebrew. collected obscure, rare and difficult hebrew words for a dictionary. when 11 translated the hebrew Itinerarium. studies the 30 years war, antitrinarium,and (hmm, hard to read my note!) baqunia baqurian? concerningegyptian antiquities. he died at 19yrs 8 months. he had always been frail.
BARBAROSSA-red bearded-2 turkish corsairs of the 1500's. the older Aruch/Horuk?Ouradyh. the younger Khizr, later caller Khait-ed-deen 'one good in faith'. christians turn his name into Hayraddin. PIRATES! ruled the mediterranean with a small fleet of ships. or as the EB says. pests of the sea. pests. good word, Abu G is a pest under georgie.
