Tidbits from the web
The etymology of Orange
The etymology of Orange
Until the 16th century, there was no word for that color in English and even then, when writers referenced it, they said something like “that thing that is the color of an orange”

Updates on Stark:
+ Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the survey. The feedback was extremely valuable!
+ Michael and I (Cat) just got back from San Francisco where we planned and worked side by side on something new. Full Disclosure: We’ve had our lips sealed about something huge we’ve been working really hard on for the last couple of weeks. More on that very soon. It’s beautiful…
