Weird Google Sidebar Ads: 

I just searched on 'condor cuisinarts' (what some environmentalists have dubbed electricity-generating wind turbine farms), and the sidebar lists three ads for Cuisinarts, one for condors. Condor. It's what's for dinner.

no, wait, 'condor' seems to be a brand of golf ball. oh, well. it was more interesting the other way.

kiyo(i), kiyo(meru)
meaning: pure, clean
清潔 == seiketsu == cleanliness
清浄 == seijou/shoujou == purity

Left radical is 'water', right is 'blue/green' (青), acting phonetically to express 'clear/clean'. 'Clean water' eventually came to mean 'clean/pure' in general. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Blue water is clean and pure.'
