    Although this spider looks ferocious, it's a very common and benign garden spider, sometimes called the Writing Spider, because it leaves zig zag patterns in its web that some people think looks like writing. (See picture below). Perhaps this was the stimulus for the wonderful children's book, Charlotte's Web?

    http://www.constellationsofwords.com...ions/Lyra.html

    Testudo, Lyrae Testudo, and Testa, were Latin names for this constellation. Turtles, Tortoises, and Terrapins are reptiles of the order Testudines (all living turtles belong to the crown group Chelonia) [5]. Testudines, Testudinidae, from Latin, and Chelonian from Greek are used interchangeably for this family of reptiles and have the same meaning. Latin testudo is related to the word test, meaning a cupel for refining or separating metals; also has the meaning of an examination or trial, and probably cognate with Latin texere, TO WEAVE "[Klein], from the Indo-European root *teks- 'To weave; also to fabricate, especially with an ax; also to make wicker or wattle fabric for (mud-covered) house walls'. Derivatives: text, textile, tissue, context, pretext, (these words from Latin texere, to weave, fabricate), texture, tiller² (a lever used to turn a rudder and steer a boat), toil² (an archaic word for net for trapping game 'caught in the toils of despair', from Latin tela, WEB, net, warp of a fabric, also weaver's beam - to which the warp threads are tied), entoil (entrap), toilet (French toilette, clothes bag, diminutive of teile, cloth), subtle ( sub 'beneath' + TELA 'WEB', from Latin subtilis, 'thread passing under the warp,' the finest thread; weaver, maker of wattle for house walls, builder; *teks-tor, builder), tectonic (structural deformation of the earth's crust, also relating to construction or building), architect (from Greek tekton, carpenter, builder, craft of weaving or fabricating), technical, polytechnic, technology, (these words from Greek tekhne, art, craft, skill), dachshund (badgerdog, from Old High German dahs, badger), dassie (from Middle Dutch das, badger, from Germanic *thahsuz, badger, possibly from this root, “the animal that builds,” referring to its burrowing skill, but more likely borrowed from the same pre-Indo-European source as the Celtic totemic name *Tazgo- as in Gaulish Tazgo-, Gaelic Tadhg, originally 'badger'). [Pokorny teks- 1058. Watkins] Maybe towel is related to toilet.

    Legend has it that four Cathar priests escaped with a sacred scroll, believed to have been written by Jesus himself, and hid pieces of the scroll around the world for safekeeping. They encoded the locations of these scrolls by weaving codes into cloths (Weaving was big for the Cathars - they even called themselves The Weavers).
