Re: Stationery

some elementary school teacher told us the way to keep
the two word apart was to remember 'pen' has an 'e' in it,
as does 'stationery' (pen and paper).

Re: Snog

Sometimes on TV shows whatever you want to call it is almost
repulsive. The noise of all the snogging has me muting the sound
until the show moves on.

Re: Sempiternal

The old RC Latin Requiem Mass had the three pleas called the
Agnus Dei, the first two ending in 'miserere nobis' (have mercy
on us).

The third and last ended with "Dona nobis pacem' (grant us
peace), and then 'sempiternam', eternally.
