Re: Earmark

Slava, I totally agree with your concept of desecration in a
'dogeared' book. Abhorrent.

Re: NIGGARDLY

I could not agree more. Language is forever changing, and
it can lose this word without any remorse.

Re: Mattress

I have a creek on my property and it serves also as a
run off for rain from the streets. The bank is very unstable
in many areas. I have secured mattress springs from beds
in three places, now long buried under silt, to reinforce
the bank. The word applies to me in a very real way.

Re: Esurient

there is an actress on Chicago Med with the name YaYa DeCosta.
I had an internet tech come to my house with the first name
of Yaya. He was from the West African country of Burkino Faso.
We had a most interesting discussion

Re: Memorial

Here at Offutt Air Force Base, home of STRATCOM,
they finished identifying the 300th set of remains
from the torpedoing of the USS Arizona from
Pearl Harbor Day. Remember all who died.

Re: Macabre

A SciFi book I recently finished,humans were
given a small dot mechanism which they stuck
behind their ear, and it became a universal
translator for all alien languages. I'm hoping
for that in heaven.

Philip- Back in the day, right after dinosaurs were no more, everyone learned Latin. It was required in private and public schools. In Junior year I transferred schools and French was offered. I loved it. Took it four years, visited Quebec, and eventually France. But no body anywhere uses it around ...

I was not too much into politics at the time
but I remember people sighing and rolling their
eyes at the mention of his name.

Re: Close

Thanks, Doc.
I also remember how classmates used the term
"that's close" when expressing 'disbelief' to something
another said. It was sort of like "no way" is used by
many today. "That's close" was early 1960's colloquialism.

Re: Drastic

Definitely futbol or soccer related and probably some east
or southeast asian language. "Gargle"(I like that) is not any
help for me either {nor Babel}.
