A coal scuttle also called a hod, "coal bucket", or "coal pail", is a bucket-like container for holding a small, intermediate supply of coal convenient to an indoor coal-fired stove or heater. It is usually made of metal and shaped like a vertical cylinder or truncated cone, with the open top slanted for pouring coal on a fire. It may have one or two handles. Homes that don't use coal sometimes use a coal scuttle decoratively..The word scuttler comes, via Middle English and Old English, from the Latin word Scutula, meaning a shallow O- Pan..Hod, term for a Coal scuttle, bucket-like container for carrying coal...Get Carter: Jack Meets Eric "Advertising Martini?" and later On Greets O- Pan..O pan great big frying pan...

Miner X-tracts O-re,Coal, or OTher minerals from the earth through mining..2 senses in which the term is used.. In its narrowest sense, a miners is someone who works at the rock face; cutting, blasting, or otherwise working and removing the rock.. In a broader sense, a "miner" is anyone working within a mine, not just a worker at the rock face..There have been miners since people first began mining. In regions with a long mining tradition, many communities have developed cultural traditions to the various regions, in the forms of particular equipment, symbolism, music, and the like..Minerva (Etruscan: Menrva) was the Roman goddess of wisdom and sponsor of arts, trade, and strategy. She was born from the godhead of Jupiter with weapons.. From the 2nd century BC onwards, the Romans equated her with the Greek goddess Athena.. She was the virgin goddess of music, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, weaving, crafts, and magic.. She is often depicted with her sacred creature, an owl usually named as the "owl of Minerva", which symbolizes that she is connected to wisdom...Coal Bucket - No 9 Thirlmere Coal Hod, I like it when some tough nut comes pushin' his way in and out of my house in the middle of the night!..I'm going to sit in the chair and whistle "Rule Britannia"...
