   Wrightwinger posted on Main Page The Lobby  Probably on the wrong wall... Sorry if that bothers anyone. But I saw this picture today on FB and as I looked at it closely, the expressions on their faces and the determination and the joy on their faces humbled me. And I spend way too much time grumbling, and not enough time being thankful. I need to work on that...

   StormCnter  I don't think it's important which wall this is on. It's a reminder of a lot of things. God bless and watch over these children. They are an inspiration.

   Alice  I agree that it's coming our way, and that makes me tired. There are many, many interesting things to do other than planning for an extended period of extremely limited movement. But it looks like it would be prudent to do such planning. Oh well.

   Lonestar Jack  I was struck by two quotes from Englishmen from days gone by.

1. Lord Robert Baden-Powell who founded the Boy Scouts.
"Never do for a boy what he can do for himself". Take that you enabling parents.

2. Shakespeare -- you remember the archaic old guy you had to read about in school.“O God, that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains!". Seems to be our current plight.

   Wrightwinger posted on Health & Diet  There are several folks in my family that don't tolerate glutin in bread. We have found a type of bread mix that makes my mom very happy called Pamela's bread. My wife makes it for her in a bread machine and I slice it for her. It looks, smells and tastes pretty good. Here is the website for it, along for other glutin free products.

Joking aside I used to buy by the bushel such as these from a local farmer as they weren't considered saleable to the chain stores; made great marinara sauce!

   Wrightwinger posted on Nostalgia  As I grew up, I heard a rich and varied dialect in my little corner of Appalachia. If you are of Scotch-Irish ancestors, see how many of these Elizabethan English terms and pronunciations you can remember, I think I heard most of them growing up... And they are fading away, into monochromatic Newspeak where accents are washed away, words lose their meaning, and their value. Enjoy!

   MeiDei  Enjoyed reading that - now I know why my highly educated, world traveler friend from nearby Ohio speaks as some in the article mentioned. Found a comparison via Michener's "The Covenant" where the characters struggle to keep their languages even as they evolved into a mix vs. how the Brits insisted on English only. The root of Varsity was new to me as were the references to double negative usage. Thanks for posting!

   StormCnter  What an interesting article. I am well aware of my Texas twang. My Onstar cannot understand the numbers I speak into the mike (nine always is interpreted as five ) and when I tried to order a fried pie at a Utah KFC, the cashier had to call the manager who, when he finally understood, advised me that "frahd pahs" were not available, but he could offer lemon tarts.

   Balogreene  And in an area of Northeastern NM, linguists study their Spanish, because it is the Spanish spoken in the 16th century. Amazing what semi-isolated areas retain.

   Wrightwinger posted on Main Page The Lobby  If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle the with bull$&/7. What did she say?
"Wow.
“My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”

   Gerty  Gotta catch your posts fast, Mr.Wright!

You've got to give the woman credit for something---spitting out the MOST number of words to have the LEAST amount of meaning!!

It's an inborn talent--probably DNA related. How many times have you seen this in the classroom?

   Bettijo  Would somebody please decipher this for me. Does she ever say what this "major accomplishment" is? It will be fun to watch her debate her Republican opponent, or, Heaven forbid, a foreign leader.

   Safetydude  Please don't compare George Orwell with the Hildabeast.
In "1984" George Orwell used the term 'doublethink', not doublespeak. Doublethink is the ability to hold two contradictory beliefs and believing them both at the same time.
Hillary believes she's brilliant and all her failures are successes. A perfect example of 'doublethink.

   MeiDei  Correct SD - I mismatched Orwell's Double Think with his News Speak. I hate when I do that : )

"Doublespeak is language which pretends to communicate but doesn't. It is language which makes the bad seem good, the negative seem positive, the unpleasant seem unattractive, or at least tolerable. It is language which avoids, shifts or denies responsibility; language which is at variance with its real or purported meaning. It is language which conceals or prevents thought.

   Wrightwinger  I suppose they didn't suit somebody... I sure didn't think that was in any way offensive, merely clever... Oh well. It sort of puts a damper on my desire to post... I saw some positive comments before it went away. I didn't see any negative ones.

   Bettijo  Mr. Wright, I did not see your post which went missing, but my curiosity got the better of me and I searched for dam beavers and found this site: http://ssqq.com/archive/vinlin20.htm
about the delightful correspondence between the authorities and the owner of the property on which the dam beavers had built a dam. I think the problem with your post is the word "dam." Maybe if you had hyphenated dam-beavers it would not have been picked up as offensive by comment police. Anyway, the fact that someone thought this story was offensive is as humorous as the original letters. You cannot fix stupid.

   Wrightwinger posted on Politics  Now who was it that made it a point to study this fellow? Wasn't it Hillary, and BHO, and a host of other folks causing so much discord? C. S. Lewis wrote a book called The Screwtape Letters from the point of view of a wily old devil, named Screwtape giving advice to a lesser imp about how to subvert a man into darkness. This fellow wrote about how to disrupt society. And we see the fruit of their efforts daily.

   MeiDei  Cloward & Piven expanded on Alinsky & almost bankrupted NYC. Now their followers and those of Alinsky are in full swing in the nation - you have to wonder what they think they'll receive.

   Wrightwinger posted on Household Hints  A while back, someone posted a query about making laundry detergent. This site has a good instructions for making a quart of liquid detergent that takes a tablespoon per load of laundry. Looks to be very economical, shouldn't have any allergens, and no perfumes. Enjoy!

   MeiDei  Here's a very simple laundry recipe - haven't tried it yet, need to get a replaement gallon jug.

Easy Homemade Laundry Detergent
A close friend of mine has been making laundry soap like this one for years, until just recently she found an easier one to make and passed it on to us.
3 Tablespoons Borax
3 Tablespoons Washing Soda (Arm & Hammer was shown )
2 Tablespoons Dawn Dish soap (pick the scent you like best )
Put these ingredients in a one gallon jug. Pour 4 cups boiling water into the jug. Swirl until ingredients are dissolved in the liquid. Let liquid cool. Then fill almost to the top with cold water. The bubbles will overflow out of the bottle.
I love this because you can pick an awesome scent with the Dawn dish soap. This dish soap works the best because it gets grease out
