Ooh, Rapunzel--not a good thread to come upon when one's stomach is upset!
Wasn't there a Star Trek episode where Viridian 3 was a planet?
Streptococcus viridans produces green colouration on blood agar.
Help me Bill. The old name for P. aeruginosa was...
A durable bluish-green pigment.
One of the major banks (I refuse to advertise who) here had a home loan called "Viridian" ... I'm still trying to figure out why. (Unless it's to make me "green" with envy that I can't get a home loan myself?)
Re: from Jackie----not a good thread to come upon when one's stomach is upset
curious the things we associate with green--
envy-- the green eyed monster,
and being sick and being naive, or worse-- a real green horn
but say emerald
and now we have emeraldeyed beauties,
or the emeraldisle, and the emerald city..
well anything defined as emerald rather than green is prettier!
yellow has the same problem.. yellow bellied, bad, but a hero is often the golden man of the hour..
blue can be many things.. blue prose, or blue mood, or blue skies. blule isn't just the blues
red, while it often shares ground with crimsom, is fine on its own, my love is like a red, red rose.
red can be red with rage, or red blooded hero, or red with embarassment, or volupuous with full red lips!
do you agree, its hard to find possitive associations for green? or am i just looking at the world through rose colored glasses, and only seeing what i want to see?

I know what you mean in the long tradition Helen - but (this side of the pond, certainly) green has become synonymous in recent years with environmental sustainability, which has redressed the balance a bit!
>>>its hard to find possitive associations for green?
Heyyyy, my eyes are green and my hubby things they are positivly beautiful
Here in Canada when a product is said to be green it means it is organic / healthy - oh and generally more expensive.
Let's see...anything good that is green?
Ummmmmmm....well....M O N E Y comes to mind!
Not here Angel dear. In Canada money is multi-coloured and often refered to as Monopoly money by our U.S. brethren.
