OK, you've got the easy part, it's pollen on one of those thingies. Now for the harder part: what kind of flower?

2 clues:
- the five dark spots are a give-away
- unlikely to find it in a garden N or S of the sub-tropical zone. The photo was taken in my garden and we are considered as +/- at the limit for this very frost-sensitive species. I think I've seen them in S Florida (~Miami) and S California (~San Diego), Thailand to Indonesia, Kenya, India (except N. India).

Damn! Babelfish said a "Dübel" is a "peg".. should have known better than to trust that site :) (BTW, what is a peg then?)

AZ

KvHagedorn
7th May 2003, 01:06
a peg is a round piece of wood used to hold furniture together

Ah thank you :)

Should've asked my big Pons dictionary before trying babelfish - but i'm so lazy...

aka as a wall plug (possibly after the trade mark Rawlplug, which was the original marque in the UK, made with aligned wood fibres moulded with a phenolic (?) resin).

peg // n.
1 a a usu. cylindrical pin or bolt of wood, metal, etc., often tapered at one end, and used for holding esp. two things together. b such a peg attached to a wall etc. and used for hanging garments etc. on. c a peg driven into the ground and attached to a rope for holding up a tent. d a bung for stoppering a cask etc. e each of several pegs used to tighten or loosen the strings of a violin etc. f a small peg, matchstick, etc. stuck into holes in a board for calculating the scores at cribbage.
2 Brit. = clothes-peg.
3 Brit. a measure of spirits or wine.
4 a place allotted to a competitor to fish etc. from (usu. marked by a numbered peg).

Oxford dixit!

Fat Tone
7th May 2003, 01:26
As we are being precise (or accurate :D ), when used for furniture joints, its normally called a dowel.

Incidentally, I've never heard of it as a measure or spirits or wine!

az
7th May 2003, 02:02
Thank you Brian for the precise and accurate answer, and Tony for the follow-up :)

My problem was that in german the word "Dübel" is used for both wood pegs ("dowels") and wall anchors.

My big pons dictionary gives dowel or plug as the translation for Dübel. Peg is "Pflock", among about 20 other meanings :)

AZ

KvHagedorn
7th May 2003, 02:19
There are idiomatic implications too. In Britain, dowel might be the proper term for the piece of wood holding furniture together, but in the U.S. we use peg. :)

az
7th May 2003, 02:22
I guess you pegged that right on the head then ;)

Thanks everyone for helping a grammar nut learn something new, and I guess we should get back to the original topic of the thread now :)

KvH - I learnt all my (post-school) woodworking from Norm Abrham - New Yankee Workshop, and he calls is dowel :p

KvHagedorn

Well, your English really doesn't seem to be deficient at all. Sometimes it's surprising to see such holes in knowledge. :)

On the other hand, my German is way too rusty to even attempt to use it now, and it's easy to be lazy when you don't have to use a language all the time.

Really? Perhaps it's just a New England idiom then. ;)

KvHagedorn
7th May 2003, 02:42
Actually, what I call a dowel is the long piece of wood before it is stuck into the furniture and sawed off to make a peg. :)

Fat Tone
7th May 2003, 03:08
LOL - I can't argue with that!

GNEP
7th May 2003, 03:09
I always thought of any cylindrical piece of wood (up to about 1" dia.) as a dowel...

A peg is used to hold the washing on the washing line.

Your pictured jig mentions "dowel pins". Here they are just called "dowels" used to make a dowelled joint. :)

GNEP
7th May 2003, 05:08
And you shouldn't confuse them with "towels" which are used to dry yourself after a shower or bath. :)

Isn't a peg used for hanging clothes as well?

Brian Ellis
7th May 2003, 05:59
Oxford dixit:

dowel // n. & v.
n. a headless peg of wood, metal, or plastic for holding together components of a structure.
v.tr. (dowelled, dowelling; US doweled, doweling) fasten with a dowel or dowels.

Sorry about that. I thought that the NYC public transportation system was pretty well-known so that SOMEONE would've figured it out.

Nothing like that sits on my vines - I have to keep them in my greenhouse in the UK climate. I'm hoping I might get enough fruit for 6 bottles this year :)

Well, I'm a treasure trove of useless information. ;) I did remember a program about the architecture of the thing.. those protrusions are awnings to keep the sun and rain off the windows, btw. Unusual for a skyscraper, but the climate in this instance demanded it. :)

Alright, whose nose is this?
