Origin of the name:

The name “Dolomites” is derived from the famous French mineralogist Déodat Gratet de Dolomieu who was the first to describe the rock, dolomite, a type of carbonate rock which is responsible for the characteristic shapes and colour of these mountains; previously they were called the “pale mountains,” and it was only in the early 19th century that the name was Gallicized.

Good Manners

I’m just saying, annoying twitter remarks come down to a simple premise: Ask yourself do you really need to tell us that?

Pull a page out of the twitter playbook: ‘I shall not commit unnecessary annoying personal remarks without due course and attention’.
