Spring Roller Window Shades
- (window shade) an opaque window blind that can cover or uncover a window
- (Window Shading) Any device for reducing unwanted heat gain from a window.
- A window blind is a type of window covering which is made with slats of fabric, wood, plastic or metal that adjust by rotating from an open position to a closed position by allowing slats to overlap. A roller blind does not have slats but comprises a single piece of material.
- The period from the vernal equinox to the summer solstice
- A resilient device, typically a helical metal coil, that can be pressed or pulled but returns to its former shape when released, used chiefly to exert constant tension or absorb movement
- the season of growth; "the emerging buds were a sure sign of spring"; "he will hold office until the spring of next year"
- a metal elastic device that returns to its shape or position when pushed or pulled or pressed; "the spring was broken"
- The season after winter and before summer, in which vegetation begins to appear, in the northern hemisphere from March to May and in the southern hemisphere from September to November
- jump: move forward by leaps and bounds; "The horse bounded across the meadow"; "The child leapt across the puddle"; "Can you jump over the fence?"
- a grounder that rolls along the infield
- a long heavy sea wave as it advances towards the shore
- An absorbent revolving cylinder attached to a handle, used to apply paint
- a small wheel without spokes (as on a roller skate)

David Gill 1843 - 1914
David Gill was born in Aberdeen and educated at Dollar Academy. He spent two years at Aberdeen University, where he was taught by James Clerk Maxwell, and then joined his father's clock-making business. It would seem that Gill's interests lay elsewhere since after a few years he sold the business, and then spent time equipping Lord Lindsay's private observatory at Dun Echt, Aberdeenshire. In 1874, Gill joined the expedition to Mauritius to observe the transit of Venus. Three years later he went to Ascension Island, accompanied by his wife, Isabel, to observe a near approach of Mars and to calculate its distance. En-route to Ascension they transited St. Helena in July 1877. While carrying out the Mars calculations, he was notified of his appointment to the Cape Observatory, which, over the following 27 years he was to refurbish completely, turning it into a first-rate institution. Gill was a meticulous observer and had a flair for getting the best out of his instruments. His solar parallax observations with a heliometer and his calculations of distances to the nearer stars, are testimony to his outstanding work. Gill used the parallax of Mars to determine the distance to the Sun, and also measured distances to the stars. He was Her Majesty's Astronomer at the Cape of Good Hope from 1879 to 1906. On Gill's retirement in 1906, the couple moved to London, where Gill served for two years (1909–1911) as president of the Royal Astronomical Society before his death in 1914. In 1878 Isabel published “Six Months on Ascension, An Unscientific Account of a Scientific Expedition” Arriving off Jamestown on July 1st 1877 they stayed until the 10th and Isabel wrote as follows: Chapter II describes the voyage from England and first impressions of St. Helena At Dartmouth, on the 14th of June, we joined the Balmoral Castle, a beautiful new steamer of the Donald Currie Line, bound for the Cape of Good Hope. She had left the London Docks three days before, having all our goods on board except the chronometers, which we brought with us. None of the outward-bound English mail ships touch at Ascension, so that we were under the necessity of taking our passage to St. Helena, there to wait for a return steamer from the Cape to take us back to Ascension 1877 At last on the 1st of July, at 4 a.m., the screw suddenly stopped, and I knew and rejoiced that we were in the Bay of James Town. At the first peep of dawn I hurried on deck and saw, so close to the ship as to make me start, dark sterile rocks rising almost perpendicularly from the sea, and partly enclosing the bright blue bay in which we were anchored. At the bottom of a strange cleft in these fierce, fortress-looking crags, a quiet little town nestled close to the sea, filling up the lap of a valley scarce 200 yards wide. Here was the landing-stage, and just beyond, a row of dark Peepul trees fringed the shore, shading and cooling the cluster of low, white houses that we were so blithe to see. Besides these, little or no vegetation appeared. The great towering rocks were cold and bare. A long ladder of 600 steps sprang from the town up the steep western side, called Ladder Hill, and at the top I thought I could descry some forts and the grim mouths of cannon. St. Helena can hardly be mentioned, much less looked upon, without memories of Napoleon crowding upon us, and I wondered, as I suppose everybody does on seeing the island, how the first sight of these grim prison walls had affected the man who seemed to find the world too small for him ? But this was no time to speculate on questions of by-gone history. The present was urgent, and suddenly remembering the terrible chaos in my cabin, and boxes still unpacked, I gave up dreaming and set to work. How very easy it is to pull things out of a box, and how difficult to get them into it again, especially in a space 7 feet long by 3 broad! The Governor's Secretary was already on board, having kindly come off thus early to advise David about landing and stowing away his numerous cases. At Lord Lindsay's kind instigation, Lord Carnarvon had previously sent despatches, requesting assistance for him in this and other matters; and for the timely help thus given we were most grateful. That lovely Sunday morning the bay was smooth and bright as a mirror, without a trace of the dreaded rollers, so that we and all our delicate impedimenta came safely and easily to shore. The Governor's pony carriage was on the wharf, and while David counted and sorted out his goods, I was driven up a short incline to the Castle, where I waited for him comfortably in the large cool rooms. Here I occupied myself in watching for the return of four gentlemen, our fellow-passengers, who had set out soon after daybreak for Napoleon's tomb, in the interior of the island. They were still missing, although the Balmoral Castle was getting up steam; and the Captain, kind as he was, would be off the moment the ship was ready to sail. Tha
It was morning at Vicki's house and I noticed that the window shade looked like a Japanese painting because of the sun and the trees outside. I thought it might make an appealing photo.
