Webs Galore on a Wednesday

Here's the quote you have all probably addressed in BYG Adventure's Ponder for today - WEB.  

Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practise to deceive!

Sir Walter Scott, Marmion, Canto vi. Stanza 17.
Scottish author & novelist (1771 - 1832)  

You might have thought this was Mr. Shakespeare, but Sir Walter Scott said this!

Then comes to mind a bit of difference in spelling - Jack Webb from the old TV Series Dragnet.  Remember this?  I used to watch this show faithfully.

This video would probably be more appropriate for Halloween, but it tells a bit of info on the strength of the spider web material.

The word web is often used to refer to a textile that might be used, say to make seat belts.

I like to think of the word in relation to a sort of mystery:  the thief was convicted by a web of evidence that pointed directly to him.  I'm working on a romance/mystery at the moment and am building the web of evidence connected to a crime committed against my heroine.  It's fun to reveal items one at a time to set the police on a course to capture the perpetrator.

There you have it.  Webs on a Wednesday!   photo image13_zps64a48e1e.png
