Cat & bergamot? Let`s talk about habits?.

Cat & bergamot? Let`s talk about habits... Conversation First

... about accustoming, habits and about all little by little

***

Instead of an epigraph:

“Tastes differ, is thousands of opinions …“

(Vladimir VYSOTSKY) of

Only - only on screens with triumph the ten-serial telechariot “Mastera and Margarita“ swept by, and the perception of citizens considerably changed towards bigger tendency to mysticism and to all more - to less beyond - to astroforecasts, horoscopes, meeting ceremonies of “year of the Fiery Dog“ in the corresponding clothes (not in dog skins, matter of course, and in bright fabrics it is red - a red range) and to delightful hopes for magic disappearance of housing and gas problems - not to kerosene stoves to come back! Chudnenko`s

!

Charming witches are smeared with the rejuvenating creams (probably, with glycyrrhiza powder - about it read articles here, in the Life magazine), becoming even more charmingly and when “ease in a body was formed“, go to free flight of the liberated soul; black cats even in habitual “Magicians“ are perceived as younger relatives of an artful Hippopotamus now, and Berlioz does not manage to light the tube - the foreign consultant with Annushka spoiled all game! - but we in the mornings (or in the evening, it a matter of habit) make tea with a bergamot.

Custom is second nature, someone used to say, similar Volandu. Castaneda with the Indians smoking a confidential grass and chewing hallucinogenic peyotl advised (as if lived in the country of councils!) to get rid of habits.

Both theses have the right for existence as they contain a truth kernel. And really, the created habits, sometimes, drive us into similarity of the blazed track. With which there is also no wish to turn. And when they, habits, begin to disturb really the owner (or is more often than him to the immediate environment), they appear to be eradicated very difficult.

I if a habit to drink in the mornings a cup of good coffee (unlike champagne which, all remember drink days not only aristocrats at this time) or to luxuriate catlike (let and in a year of a dog) under a warm blanket hardly anyone - that calls harmful - in the same way harm of a morning cigarette will hardly raise doubts. As - the cigarette reduces life in any way, and a coffee cup, certain experts say, prolongs. And with cholesterol, besides, everything is all right.

By the way, about cats - their habit to lose mind in the presence of other drink speaks simply: the same experts consider that biochemical the volatiles emitted by “a weaker cat`s sex“ are similar to substances of essential oil from roots of a valerian medicinal.

“Scent of a Woman“, repeatedly strengthened, dements or “brainwashes“ cats - if to dig out plant roots, four-footed sufferers are pulled together with all the district, carrying a ruthless ancient instinct. It is repeatedly checked!

... more strong only her attachment of mummy and kids... As with pleasure sleep!. (Photo: the author is unknown :), the neigbour`s photo album)

However, acquaintances spoke to me, as kitties with pleasure “consume a valeryanochka“. Well, means, and pink dreams soar in the cat`s world!. Eventually, that can be stronger than the true female attachment!

Dealt with it. Also we will lay aside beaten alkogolno - heroin (was about to tell “heroic“) subject - here indisputable harm of accustoming is repeatedly proved, and on quite lethal examples recorded by passionless statistics.

Other habits still raise certain doubts. For example, connected with consumption of chocolate, a bergamot, bananas and so on.

However, doubts belong to a measure of the use of a product more likely. If to arrange itself a holiday and to overeat chocolate, it is possible to fall down with pain in a liver (so anything to overeat it - or to drink too much - also not that will be!) and the banana hobby can lead to failure in work of intestines (by the way, bananas, oranges plus other citrus are contraindicated at some diseases) and numerous is production - to household inconveniences. In the same way as the habit of one known model to daily shock doses of laxative called its close relations with the boyfriend into question - can imagine!. The girl was cured of harmful addiction to internal purity only by the tsunami which tired out the long-legged beauty on a palm tree top where she stayed all day and still slightly - slightly (water did not fall down yet), lost an opportunity to accept a handful of tablets on duty and many other opportunities.

A bergamot - absolutely other business. Well what harm from it? Though my relatives, looking early in the morning on kitchen, wrinkle noses - again “tea with cologne“ made!. Perish the thought, and here … I speak - a matter of taste.

But now we argue on tastes. And once, davny - long ago, everything was absolutely in a different way...

Representatives of the sort Citrus appeared on Earth about 30 - and millions years ago or even moreover (known Japanese tsitrolog mister Tanaka so considered). During era of the top Cretaceous, magnificently remote from civilized mankind, - when there was an unforgettable separation of the Australian continent from the general Euroasian continent - here in those times and the first citrus appeared on the planet.

Evolution went to itself and went under the own steam as suddenly quite recently - some five (either seven, or six) millions years ago the Person interfered with it!

People paid attention to interesting fruits - moreover, undertook their selection (perhaps, selection spontaneous, unconscious when seeds of the most tasty collected fruits, being successfully eaten, were thrown out about huts, and shoots soon rose and trees of future citruses - descendants grew). Originally initiators of cultivation of citruses knew about ten their types or versions. And all of them were cultivated in Hugo - East Asia.

But it were no modern fruits! Both they looked, and “were tasted“ a little differently.

According to ancient documents of India and China, fruits of citruses of a polzovalistogd enormous popularity - but not as food! And as lechebno - hygienic means or even ritually - magic! Yes, here and not differently! And sladkoplodny grades arose already later, is closer to the early Middle Ages.

Before finally passing “from cats“ to a bergamot, it is impossible to resist temptation to mention a two-three of the facts and faktik concerning a citrus in general.

Transcaucasia. That the culture of a citrus was well-known here in the XI-XII centuries (our era), testifies Bottoms - more precisely, a fragment of the poem “Iskender - Nam“ with the description of a feast in honor of Alexander of Macedon`s arrival in the city to the Bard (Azerbaijan):“ ... From snack everything that is precious - both wild oranges, and a quince, and pomegranates, as well as oranges“.

I for a second we will be late beyond the Caucasus: the modern Georgian name of one of a citrus (specifically orange) “portokhal“ undoubtedly confirms a secondary introduction of a plant from Portugal.

Everything, we come back to Europe!

So, by Citrus bergamia Risso from a nice sort of a citrus of family rutovy - the tree without prickles from Hugo - East Asia in the past was grown up almost only in the Italian province of Calabria. By the way, on the basis of bergamot oil in 1676 (we will celebrate anniversary of this event soon!) cologne - naturally, in the city of Colon was for the first time made. The word “cologne“ in translation - all remember? - “water from Colon“...

Cat & bergamot? Let`s talk about habits... Conversation Second

Practically in all European languages the name of a plant is said equally: bergamot at British, Bergamotte at Germans; French, distinguished grassiruya, say - “bergamotier“.

Roots of similar similarity, of course, Italian - davny - long ago, at the bottom delightful Alpy, in Northern Italy, arose the small town of Bergamo which became over time an administrative center of the province of the same name. Bergamskiye Alpy is not the homeland of a citrus of a bergamot, but only the homeland of the European name and Lombardsky` part of Alpy. And all know that lombardsky merchants not only financed crusades and controlled a financial condition of many royal surnames of medieval Europe, but also traded in spices. Our citrus was included into their number.

By the way, bergamsky marble - vulpinit - is called so not from at all - for a bergamot, and thanks to the fact that it was for the first time found near the city of Bergamo.

But in honor of a pear-shaped fruit of this citrus selectors were called pear grades - “a muscat bergamot“, “the Circassian bergamot“, “a bergamot summer red“ … by Zolotisto`s

- a pear-shaped fruit of a bergamot, yellow with a greenish shade (not pears!) contains essential oil which is used for a fragrance of creams and ointments, in perfumery and not only - for example, in the course of production of such known tea as “The gray-haired count“.

Bergamot oil received not only from a peel of fruits (where contents as much as possible, from one to 3 - x %), but also from leaves, young escapes and flowers. It has fresh pleasant aroma also it is considered the best of all that is received, processing a various citrus. It is considered. But certain citizens are allowed to have own opinion - we have a pluralism long ago, and it is not obligatory to reach consensus. Cookery and perfumery - not policy. The smell, you see, differs radically.

At us it once long ago called “orange - a bergamot“, and some scientists - and not really scientific, and it is rather politicians... (uneducated politicians?) - counted up as a kind of a wild orange, prickly to a protivnost.

Confusion in names - a commonplace, both in the past and in the present. The human factor whether you know …

B H_ a century sour or bitter “orange“ (a bigaradiya, a wild orange) was delivered by Arabs to the Region of Mediterranean, seemingly, before other citrus. Arabs called it “íàðàíäæ“. French “orangerie“ - i.e. an orange plantation - “lasts“ through French “orange“ from these most Arab and Persian words “narandzh“ and “narindzh“ (which originally called sour “orange“, and only much later other look, much more sweet), and Sanskrit “narang“.

the Word “orange“ appeared much later - it is the German Apfelsine that in translation means literally “the Chinese apple“.

Of course, in names it is possible to drown.

It is considered that on the Black Sea coast of Citrus bergamia it was entered into culture in 40 - x years before last (that estkh_kh) centuries. Though the bergamot, apparently, approached Europe and in the early Middle Ages - Ancient Georgia to the queen Tamara had direct connections with India, China, Iran (all - proximity to the Great Silk Way) from where together with other goods, spices, fabrics, other deficiency, also these plants could be brought. Fruits of a citrus are often mentioned in monuments of drevnegruzinsky medical literature of the XI-XVI centuries. It is quite probable that the bergamot with other citrus began to be grown up in the first “botanical“ (pharmaceutical monastic) gardens of Ancient Armenia.

By the way, about “narindzh“ also in great Shot Rustaveli`s poem “The hero in a barsovy skin“ better known is told us as “The hero in a tiger skin“.

Generally, history at a bergamot, it is equal as antiquity of “roots“ of other citrus, quite decent. And a track record quite decent - cologne, tea, drevnegruzinsky medicine …

Use of similar plants in Europe was standard for expensive spices of that era - at the numerous noblemen, merchants, newly-baked knights who grew rich on the First crusade and who opened for themselves the East, a sdabrivaniye of meat dishes (vegetables and fruit in medieval half-civilized Europe, unlike the civilized East, used extremely seldom and few) east spices in magnificent doses was considered as chic - to show off to neighbors, having bought the Japanese truck with frills, they could not yet - and became a habit. Causing in passing gastritises and other “pleasures“ - gluttony consequences. Practically all spices, it is well-known, very stimulate appetite.

Is better they would study more carefully the list of the main mortal sins where also the gluttony got lost.

Is clear that simple peasants and handicraftsmen of spice like a bergamot, black pepper and cinnamon could only smell - and that from far away - and then, having deeply sighed, to further sup a wooden spoon thick porridge or liquid soup.

To us, misters are companions, ladies and the lady, and also their children, it is necessary to take, probably, in this question the correct position, having resorted to traditional “golden mean“. In total - in the twenty first century we live!. We consider ourselves as educated people! We know everything about how to grow thin and how to grow plump. Everything we know

about drugs and diseases - but a little about health.

Finishing conversation on habits and a citrus, I will tell only that according to some information excess consumption of ascorbic acid (it is equal as a habit to eating of oranges and lemons in kilograms) leads not only to reduction of volume of a purse, but also to painful symptoms in legs that is observed sometimes during the strengthened treatment of various colds.

However, similar symptoms have also other reasons.

… And whether it is worth getting used to something, solves, eventually, everyone for himself.
