   Gram77  I don't know what others will think of this, but I saw this a long time ago and said "clever" and never gave it another thought. Now that I am in the very golden years it makes sense and I wasted a lot of time chasing windmills before I discovered what this lesson meant. Trust me, this the way to live. Thank you, WW.

   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...

   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.

   Balogreene  I must just be in a bad mood.
If I was gluten intolerant, I would go to a doctor quickly. Supposedly the only people who can not eat gluten, have celiac's disease, which is very serious. If you don't have celiac's, you are not gluten intolerant, but there is something else wrong with your gut, like maybe diverticulosis (or osis, depending ).
Or a friend of mine had an appointment to see about celiac's cause of her reaction to grains turns out she had bowel cancer (a very slow growing, nothing to worry about, but must be fixed type of cancer ).
Gluten is the thing in wheats that makes good bread. I have to admit, I have a ton of gluten-free recipes, cause I don't need the carbs or other side-effects. But, according to scientists, allergists, nutritionists, etc. only about .01% of people have a true gluten intolerance.

   Wrightwinger  You know, Balogreen, you may be spot on about the gluten intolerance ratio. I haven't made an exhaustive study about it. But there may well be some other factor involved. The wheat we buy now is not the wheat sold when we were kids. There are a variety of different strains of wheat, and these have been selectively bred for certain characteristics. Along the way, with depleted soil, and sprays, and chemical fertilizers, and even some gene splicing, I fear that some of the nutrition is lost, and some other things have been added. The thing about much of this gluten free bread is that it is made of a variety of other flours such as rice and sorghum. Add in the manufacturing process of wheat, where much of the nutrition is stripped away to make stable products with long shelf-lives, and even though some of the vitamins have been added back, some of the food value is lost.

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.
