I'm glad you've stopped by to read this blog. I hope you like it and will choose to be a follower. Also, please feel free to comment on the content. I'm open to positive and negative comments, as long as they are in good taste.
This blog has been in existence since 2009, and I have posted nearly every day. To date there are over 1700 blog postings. The archives button will lead you to past posts.
You'll notice pretty quickly that my purpose is to expose words and phrases that are common to our speech and printing in American English. Occasionally I drop in a word from another language,(such as "pie a la mode")but only if it is fairly commonly used in everyday parlance. I then comment on the word or phrase, relating it to some aspect of our lives. It may be politics, sports, the arts, or even something I've been reading. Sometimes I get carried away with the commentary and almost forget what word I'm exposing!
So, once again, WELCOME. I hope to see you here frequently.
