What Expressions Irritate You?

We all have our Opinions. Our ideas. Our attitudes. Our rants.One of my issues is the use of the language to mislead the public. But the issue I raise here is the use of words to imply excellence, superiority, desirability.What words? Hand-crafted. Hand-di

How many people can still remember Buster Brown shoes?

Standing in a grocery checkout line yesterday, while my wife was paying for her grocery items, the man behind us in line said something about Buster Brown and I told him I had no clue as to what he was talking about. He looked at me and said, "You are pr

You English Experts: How Bad Is Your English, Sometimes?

Actually, I am quite adept in using my native tongue. No, I am not a stickler for rules, especially when rules seem (frankly) stupid. For instance, I ignore the rules when it comes to silent "h" and the use of 'a' or 'an'. Even so, there are times when I

Have You Ever Heard the Name DEMING JARVES?

When I was a youngster, my family didn't have a lot of money, but my father insisted (and she loved it) that my mother not work to bring in additional income. Rather, she would maintain the home and engage in a host of other activities, including shopping.

Doomsday prophets aren't making much headway when they say they favor mass pandemics to reduce the overpopulation of the planet.

I began to see the way the doomsday prophets were going. They start out with concern for the planet, but are only whistle blowers. They do not care about anyone. They are only interested in creating fear among everyone who is lulled into listening to their

The Difference Between Professional and Expert

I'm always expounding about the poor word usage of people in general. Not that I expect perfection. "Lord knows" I'm far from perfect. And I pen my fair share of word errors. But some expressions particularly "get my goat".One of those goat getting utteran

Do you Collect Books?

The library is the place for me. They have real books that don't cost a dime to check out and read at my leisure. What could be better than that? Owning my own library. I once collected all my books in paperback form. I once had over a hundred pap

Texas Blue Bonnets are Everywhere and Spring has Sprung in Big D, Dallas Texas

Before mowing the yard there were bluebonnets all over the back yard. We forgot to take a photograph of the flowers all over the lawn and when I came across this pic for this particular article, I wanted everyone to see for themselves how nice they look.

Sweat Your Body, Sweat Your Brain and Have Fun Writing

Have you ever undertaken a work that, when you finished it, it brought you great satisfaction? I mean really great satisfaction? Perhaps you planted a garden, crocheted a quilt, built an outbuilding, crafted a work of art, bred an orchid... Well these work

Lost in a Walmart, looking for my better half while she was looking for me.

First, it began like any normal shopping day. We filled up the gas tank, then drove to the local Super Center and I got out like I usually do, searching for an Amigos electric shopping cart for my wife. I go into the store looking around to see if there is

It's hard to imagine that about 182 years ago a man made a glider and took to the skies.

It has been a brief time in human history since the days of the first man made flight. First without an engine, as a glider, then not too much longer after that, the steam engine. It has been little over a century since the first man risked life and limb t

Why the big deal about making coffee? I guess it's because it's one drink I never get tired of.

It started a long time before I even bothered to grow up. When I was just a toddler. Coffee was a thing that my mom and my dad had every morning. Along with a cigarette. I didn't like the smell of burning cigarettes and the smoke got in my eyes
