Tungsten

Tungsten /ˈtʌŋstən/, also known as wolfram /ˈwʊlfrəm/ (wuul-frəm), is a chemical element with the chemical symbol W and atomic number 74.

A hard, rare metal under standard conditions when uncombined, tungsten is found naturally on Earth only in chemical compounds. It was identified as a new element in 1781, and first isolated as a metal in 1783. Its important ores include wolframite and scheelite. The free element is remarkable for its robustness, especially the fact that it has the highest melting point of all the non-alloyed metals and the second highest of all the elements after carbon.

Still here? Good.

 

Look at that nice mane of hair. And LovelyWife’s hair is not bad either.

Sixteen years ago LovelyGirlfriend became LovelyWife. This is our Tungsten anniversary. Like Tungsten, being married 16 years is a hard and rare thing. Like Tungsten, we are remarkable for our robustness, and I have a really high melting point.

LovelyWife likes to set things on fire (that’s the carbon reference) including my heart.

And that’s a W. 😉

Happy Anniversary Honey! XXX

  1. Congrats! That is so awesome!

    HHH finally gave up on gold and bought a Tungsten wedding ring because his old gold one kept getting bent & scratched at work. (He’s a maintenance man) Best investment ever, you know, besides marrying him in the first place!

  2. Comme toujours, je suis en retard, sur la question des anniversaires. N’en reste pas moins que nous vous souhaitons un bel anniversaire. Nous sommes très fiers de vous. Bisous. Papa et maman.
