Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

What flowers were in Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis funeral?

White lilies were reported to be Mrs. Kennedy's favorite flower. Someone recalled that her coffin was covered with beautiful white lilies the small variety, the type used in "Mouget Des Bois" perfume (Coty) that was so popular as a fragrance in the 1960's. The lilies were in the shape of a cross, surrounded by what appeared to be green fern clippings. When Carolyn Bessette and JFK, Jr. were married, Carolyn carried a small bouquet of these lilies and JFK, Jr. wore a lily in his boutonniere. It was said that when the guests saw the beautiful bride, coming down the aisle, the sight of her small white bouquet of lilies brought them to tears because they recalled that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis loved that flower.

A horizontal arrangement is one that is low to the vision and extends horizontally to the container. Most dinner arrangements are made this way in order to be properly seen over during the meal. While elements might protrude in the vertical, for the most part the design is a straight line on the horizontal plane.

Where can you find estimated operating costs for an indoor 8 lane competitive pool?

This is a really tough question because there are so many variables - where is the pool located, type, what type of water handling systems, estimated swimmer load, etc..etc..

First, search the Internet. After a quick Google search using "pool operating costs" as the search criteria, I found a budget estimate from the City of Oklahoma that might be of general interest ... http://www.okc.gov/mgr/mgr_library/20040210/poolreport.html This estimate is interesting because it shows that labor costs (facility management) is generally larger than the fixed costs of water, chemicals, machinery/parts, etc.

The next place to go is to try to find similar pools (in your state or region if possible). Your best bet in being able to get actual operating cost data is for public pools. Contact the City Manager or other city official and ask what operating costs were estimated and approved by the City Council (or other government agency). This information is usually readily available to the public and should give you a very good estimate of ALL of the operating costs.

Last, go visit a similar pool facility and ask to talk with the site manager. He/she might be willing to give you rough estimates of the overall total operating costs. Don't be surprised if they don't want to provide a lot of cost breakdown and details - most facilities would rather not divulge this information.

Are silk or dried flowers better to use in floral arrangements?

I used to co-own a flower shop and I can tell you that it all depends on what you intend to use the arrangement for (such as an event) and for how long. For long-term, home use, I would recommend a dried arrangement, but keep in mind that some dried flowers attract moths - which can lead to a host of problems. Silk is a nice alternative. You can find lots of silk flowers that look real and have amazing color. If the flowers are for a picnic or get-together, I would go with fresh. An empty coffee can or oversized coffee mug make nice containers. Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers: * Dried as it gives it a classic old look. It depends on what the atmosphere of your house looks like.

What are the most popular wrestling factions?

FactionsHere are opinions:
  • The 5 most popular faction's are nWo, 4 horsemen, the corporate ministry, DX, and probably evolution
  • everyone knows that the nation of domination was the best...only after the rock took over...of course.
  • I would say DX, but i also think that NWO wolfpack was great in wcw,
  • (5 best factions): 5: ministry of darkness; 4: 4 horseman; 3: NWO; 2: corporate ministry 1: D genertaion X (only in 1st because theyt ran from '97 to 00', longest faction ever, 3 years)
  • The NWO, Wolfpac, and ministry of darkness were the most dominant factions ever. they almost took over the wcw and wwf.
  • The Corporate Ministy is the best overall but my personal favorites are evolution, DX and NWO 2000
  • I say four horsemen, but there's no true #1, it's only an opion, with each fan. So every faction is #1 in some one's mind.
  • Ministry of darkness, DX, Nation of Domination are my favourite factions. Evolution wasn't that good. nWo is my all time fav too.
  • I think the nWo and the bWo
AnswerMy opinion only, but If i had to make a top 5 of the greatest factions in wrestling i would have to look for popularity, overall impact and how long they lasted.

#5- The Four Horsemen

#4- The Nation Of Domination

#3- Evolution

#2- DX

#1- NWO

Lots of People don't include the four horsemen in there list but they belong there I'm talking the original four horsemen. The Nation of Domination was nothing more then a big street gang they were very overpowering and they had youth (dlo rocky and Henry) and wisdom ( Ron simmons and kama). Evolution was just that! they had francishe players in the making with orton and batista and alot of experience and teaching when it came to Triple H and Ric Flair. DX was stearing the wwf into the attitude generation. they were everything the fans wanted with some of the most memorable catch phrases and taunts in the business. To Me The Reason NWO is the number 1 faction in wrestling is because they were more overpowering then any group on the list. Even with the original 3 they were still the most powerful. The difference between NWO and DX is that nwo wasn't about humor and doing taunts or things like that. The NWO represented power and dominance and the NWO will be remembered for the most shocking moment in wrestling when hogan turned heel. And it just grew for there and it became a lifestyle and there has been many versions of the nwo so that to me is why nwo is by far the best.

are you ready?D-X is the best by far.

What do you put on live flowers to get glitter to stick and stay on the flowers?

Nothing. Please. Poinsettias aren't lilies, but there is a phrase that is still applicable: "gilding the lily". It refers to taking something inherently beautiful (a real flower) and adding something synthetic (glitter or gilt) which actually takes away from the natural beauty rather than adding to it.

ANSWER: Although I completely agree with the above answer, you can buy a special floral glitter spray which contains a clear adhesive that makes the glitter stick.

Why does sugar prolong the life of a cut flower?

Mainly, the sugar replaces the sugars the plant normally would be producing in either the high light environment of the greenhouse or out of doors. Even though the stem and leaves are probably still producing sugars indoors, the low light is not suitable for normal photosynthesis.

What is the problem with flowers purchased in the Oklahoma City area that they all die within a few days of purchase when existing flowers in same households do fine?

Do you mean flowers purchsed from a florist or a grocery store? Please be more specific with your question. == Is it possible that you did not cut your stems when you brought them home? Cut flowers must have the stems recut before they are vased for display. Another issue is that you did not thoroughly clean the vase before you put flowers in them. After washing the vase, thoroughly rinse it, then put a vinegar solution in it to remove all traces of residue. Solution: 1/4 cup of vinegar to 1/2 gallon of water. Rinse again. Flowers are most susceptable to soap residue. Finally, did you use the nutrient solution that came with the flowers? Many bouquets come with the solution in the package. This solution is both nutrient and anti-fungal, so use it according to package directions.

How do you make bows from 1 wide ribbon?

This is tricky to describe but easy to accomplish. You need your ribbon and a piece of flexible wire. A pair of pliers is nice, but not entirely necessary. Using your non dominate hand, pinch the ribbon about 6" from the end. With your dominate hand, make a loop to one side of the pinch, shiny side out, about 6" long. Now pinch the ribbon with the same fingers of the non dominate hand but as you pinch, twist the ribbon in the pinch so the dull side of the ribbon is facing you. Make the 6" loop with the shiny side out, and once again pinch it and twist. This will always make the shiny side go out. Repeat these two steps, using a smaller loop each side, for seven repeats. Now you have a fist full of ribbon, so how to finish it? Make a small center loop loosly around the thumb of the non dominate hand and let about 6" of ribbon dangle down. Cut ribbon from the bolt. Take the wire and bend it around the ribbon twists and under the center loop that your thumb is holding. Bend wire to the back of the ribbon and twist it by hand until snug against the ribbon. Taking your index finger, insert it into any loop of the ribbon to rearrange it to your satisfaction, leaving the center loop in place. Pull the trailing end of the ribbon to the bottom of the bow, making it about even with the first "tail". When you are happy with the arrangement of the loops, use the pliers to tighten the wire to secure it. Bend the wire in a fashion to use either as a hook for a vase, a pick for a pot, or trim it to tape to a package. Now practice! It gets better over time. This method works with any size ribbon. The narrow ribbon needs 9 loops, and a pot bow only needs 5 loops to look nice.
