Greenygrey is a Homeless Word: Remember the Strays

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon.  Although we have made great progress in identifying a place for greenygrey in society, we must remember that it still has no place in any of the great word houses, known as dictionaries, such as Oxford, Collins or even our beloved Free Online Dictionary.

Greenygrey not at Home in a Dictionary

A search on Greenygrey in the Free Online Dictionary now brings up the sad message: Word not found in the Dictionary and Encyclopedia.

So although I have provided many reasons for greenygrey finding a place in the dictionary it is still at the moment out in the cold.

Homeless and Stray Numbers Rising

While the Greenygrey can survive out in the cold, due to its winter coat, it is not so easy for many people and animals.

And with numbers apparently rising in the difficult economic conditions, as winter arrives in the northern hemisphere, we should perhaps remember them.

Green Thinking about Identity

In the above image, both squares and circles are really the same colours.

Hi, it’s Green.  I was catching up with Grey’s latest Werewolf of blogs, and read that it saw a television documentary called The Code, and that it made Grey wonder if green and grey are dominant colours in nature and the human mind.

We are still rebuilding communications with Oz, so cannot bring the blogs into the Greenygrey world at the current time.

Horizon: What is Colour, and How does it Influence?

No sooner had I read that, than I read an article by our ol’ buddy, Marc Latham, on Suite 101, about a Horizon documentary that had the latest research on how colour is created and how it influences us.

It theorises that colour is subjective and influenced by society and language. Colour can also influence our moods and behaviour.  I’m happy to say that green is usually considered good by the human mind, with red its negative opposite.

The programme is available until September 19th on the BBC website, but I don’t know if it’s available in your human world country.

Article Citing Research Linking Biological and Political Development

World Science has just published an article featuring research finding that political development has a similar structure to that found in biological systems.  It ties in nicely with the Time Stands Still poem recently published to this site.

It also has an article about butterflies treating their young, which is relevant for the ant theory poetry previously featured on the site.

Thanks to World Science and the researchers for the info, and you for visiting.  Have a great weekend!
