2. Goeiemorgen, morgen of lily & sapphire
"Goeiemorgen, morgen" ("Good morning, morning") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, performed in Dutch by Jacques Raymond and Lily Castel. The song was performed tenth on the night (following the United Kingdom's Clodagh Rodgers with "Jack In The Box" and preceding Italy's Massimo Ranieri with "L'amore un attimo").
At the close of voting, it had received 68 points, placing 14th in a field of 18. The song was originally intended to be performed by Nicole & Hugo, who would represent Belgium at the 1973 contest with "Baby, Baby", however shortly prior to their departure to Dublin for the contest, Nicole fell ill with jaundice and the duo were unable to attend. As an indirect consequence of the late cancellation, "Goeiemorgen, morgen" was recorded by both duos and Nicole & Hugo even released the song in a French-language version, then entitled "La vie chante".
The song itself is an up-beat number, dealing with the simple joy of waking up in the morning. It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 1972 Contest by Serge & Christine Ghisoland performing " la folie ou pas du tout".
George Tzavellas of lily & sapphire
George Tzavellas, also rendered Giorgos Tzavellas, Yiorgos Tzavellas, or Yorgos Javellas (Greek: , 1916, Athens October 18, 1976), was a Greek film director, screenwriter, and playwright. His filmmaking was particularly influential, with critic Georges Sadoul considering him "one of the three major postwar Greek directors" (along with Michael Cacoyannis and Nikos Koundouros). Tzavellas wrote at least 26 plays, in addition to writing the scripts for all of his films.
Among his notable films are Marinos Kontaras (1948), the drama O methystakas (1950), and Antigone (1961), a cinematic adaptation of the Sophocles tragedy. His adaptation of Antigone reimagined it in the language of realist cinema, omitting stylized elements of Greek stageplay such as the chorus, and attempting to convey the same information via setting and dialogue. In 1964 he was a member of the jury at the 14th Berlin International Film Festival.
His masterpiece, however, is the 1955 film The Counterfeit Coin (I klpiki lra), a film in four parts, linking the stories of several people through their transactions of a single counterfeit gold coin.

6. Baeometra of lily & sapphire
Baeometra is a genus in the family Colchicaceae containing a single species, Baeometra uniflora.
It is native to South Africa, where it is commonly called beetle lily due to the dark markings on the tepals. The genus was erected when the British botanist Richard Salisbury described the species "Baeometra columellaris" in 1812, although the plant had already been discovered, described and painted in 1793 by the Austrian botanist Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin under the name Melanthium uniflorum. The correct name for the species was thus settled in 1941 by the South African botanist Gwendolyn Lewis to be Baeometra uniflora (Salisb.
The epithet means "single-flowered", which is contradicted by the fact that the stem usually bears at least two yellowish flowers. The species is related to the genus Wurmbea, which is present in southern Africa and Australia, and is known to be a poisonous plant containing the alkaloid colchicine. It has been introduced to Australia, where it is considered to be an invasive and unwanted addition to the local flora.

Edgar Vincent of lily & sapphire
Edgar Vincent (13 March 1918, Hamburg 26 June 2008, New York City) was an American publicist and actor of German birth. He began his career appearing in small roles in Hollywood films during the 1940s but his German accent prevented him from moving further with his career. In 1949 he joined a New York publishing firm with his first client being the opera singer Ezio Pinza.
He went on to specialize in being a publicist for opera singers, helping shape and forward the careers of major stars like Lily Pons, Anna Moffo, Eleanor Steber, Jussi Bjrling, George London, Leonard Warren, Mirella Freni, Shirley Verrett, Cecilia Bartoli, Dolora Zajick, Dorothy Kirsten, Eileen Farrell, Birgit Nilsson, Rise Stevens and Salvatore Licitra. He had a particularly close friendship and relationship with the late Beverly Sills and was also a close friend and adviser to Plcido Domingo in addition to being his publicist. Vincent also worked for Mikhail Baryshnikov and a handful of musicians other than opera singers, including conductors Erich Leinsdorf, Leopold Stokowski and Georg Solti; the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich; and the violinist Isaac Stern.
He also worked frequently with his colleague, fellow publicist Margaret Carson.
11. Background of lily & sapphire
He worked on the First Transcontinental Railroad as the foreman of a group of Chinese railroad workers, many of whom Chin, himself, recruited and helped to gain passage into the United States.
His leadership was important to the construction of the railroad because Chinese railroad workers were used to lay the steel rails. Following the completion of the railroad in 1869 he settled for a time in Black Hawk, Colorado where he was the unofficial leader of a group of Chinese immigrants who settled in a community called Cottonwood. Chin eventually achieved modest success in mining investments in Central City; by the 1870s, he had earned enough money to bring his family over from China.
Upon their arrival, he moved to Denver, where he, as well as his children and descendants, became important figures in the city. He died in 1894 and was buried in Denver's Riverside Cemetery. In April 1901 his body was exhumed and transferred to China.
