Hot volcanic debris spreading after an underwater vent erupted way back in October 2011, sending ash and chemicals into the sea and causing muddy discoloration of the waters south of the island....you can see the underwater plume being dispersed in the currents.


Hmm! Thanks for that.

I wasn't aware that the smoke coming out of the top of Mount Tiede was volcanic, I thought someone was down there having a ciggy.

I'm being sarcastic by the way.

Have you been to the Canaries Sheila? I had a place there.

It's not smoke from the volcano Roscoe, it's an underwater plume.

So we know Till Eulenspiegel means Tilleul en Spiegel

Completely wrong.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Till_Eulenspiegel
>>>
The literal translation of the High German name "Eulenspiegel" is "owl mirror", two symbols that identify Till Eulenspiegel in popular woodcuts.


https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Till_Eule ... mensgebung
>>>
Der Vorname Till ist eine Kurzform zu Dietrich oder zu Ägidius. Till Eulenspiegel, auch Dil Ulenspiegel und Dyl Ulenspegel genannt. Die niederdeutschen Wörter ule und spegel bedeuten Eule und Spiegel. Tills Nachname wird daher oft als einfache Zusammensetzung der Wörter Eule und Spiegel angesehen, und daher kommt auch die Übersetzung des Namens ins Hochdeutsche als „Eulenspiegel“. Eine Abbildung in einer der ersten erhaltenen Ausgaben des Eulenspiegel (1515) zeigt ihn bereits mit Spiegel und Eule in Händen.

Another meaning hypothetically attributed to his name is "ar*e wipe".

L’étymologie est cependant beaucoup plus triviale : ..... le nom vient du moyen bas-allemand ulen « essuyer » et spegel « miroir, derrière », et l'expression ul'n spegel veut dire je t'emmerde.

Basically F*ck you.

He was baptised three times in one day...once in the baptismal font, once in mud (because the midwife who was carrying him had had a tipple or two) and once in a cauldron of hot water ( to wash him off).

C’est ainsi que Til fut baptisé trois fois en un jour : une fois sur les fonts, une fois dans la boue, et une fois dans un chaudron avec de l’eau chaude.

He lived beside the river Sal

When he finally died and everyone was assembled in the cemetery around the coffin, he was lowered down into the ground on two ropes. But the rope around his feet broke, and the coffin fell so that Ulespiegle was standing on his feet.
The people said, "Leave him as he is; He was strange during his life; He wishes to be so again after his death. They closed the pit and left him standing on his feet.


and his epitaph was...

que nul ne lève cette pierre :
Ulespiègle est ici debout sous terre.


Let no one raise this stone:
Ulespiègle is standing here underground.

Again we get reference to the island of el Hierro in the Canaries where you'll find a ruined Templar tower next to a place called Meridiano.

Le Poulpiquet is an interesting name.

Alas despite some attempts I've yet to go there. Couldn't get to El Hierro last time I was in the Canaries.


Well, I've been looking for material on this. The only thing I have been able to find is this:

Quote:
The story of the Paris meridian is an interesting one. In the year 1601 the young French prince who was destined to become Louis XIII was born and took over the French throne at the age of 9. The young king’s first minister was Cardinal Armand Jean du Plessis de Richelieu and ruled France until the king came of age. In the year 1634 Cardinal Richelieu had decided that the Ferro’s meridian should be used by France in all reference maps, until then no meridian had been used. Ferro was better known as the island of El Hierro and was the western most islands of the Canaries, since this island was the western most position of the Old World. It was also thought at this time (incorrectly) that this island was exactly 20 degrees west of Paris. After the French astronomer Abbé Jean Picard measured the length of a degree and the size of the earth in between 1669 and 1670 he found that the actual position of El Hierro was found to be 20º 23’ 9” west of Paris.

El Hierro is also known by the nickname Isla Del Meridiano and it is situated precisely 18º west of Greenwich. Hierro takes its name from the Gaunche Language for Hero but has been changed through folk etymology to Hierro which means ‘iron’ in Spanish and thus the word Ferro became the nickname used by Cardinal Richelieu. A tower is situated at the western most point of El Hierro, and subsequently the western most point of Europe, which bears the name Meridiano, there is unidentified writing nearby, perhaps Knights Templar.

From Chapter 1, page 7 of :

Archangel Michael, Perillos and the Meridian

It's at Valverde. I took the info from a tourist guide for the island. However somewhere on this forum I did write a bit more about it. Can't find it in a search.

If I recall it had something to do with Henry the Navigator.

Go ahead I'll stay off this thread.

You'd better get going whilst you can.

By the way Just a quickie

There was a member called Aprositus Nesos on here before he/she was chased away like the others.

Google that word.
