I've loved M.C. Escher since I saw his works on "The Curiosity Show" (Aussie TV science show for kids in the 70s.)

Posted: Thursday, April 19, 2018 7:23:32 AM
She wrote most of her best lines. She had some beauties!

"When I'm good, I'm very good. But when I'm bad I'm better."

"It's not the men in my life that count, it's the life in my men."

"When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before."

"Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution."

"I'll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure."

My personal favourite: "A hard man is good to find."

Bessie Smith was born at about the same time as my great-grandmother. When I discovered the blues, she quickly became my favourite singer. When I get a few too many drinks into me, I break out into "Me & My Gin".

RIP Bessie!

Deliberately choosing the least-likely of the possible synonyms as "the right answer" is one of its delights.



I don't normally have a masochistic streak. I don't know why I waste so much of my time playing their stupid games. Boo hoo!

Topic: Match Up Error - Synonyms
Posted: Sunday, March 25, 2018 2:33:15 PM
I'm sure there used to be a thread for this, but I can't find it for the life of me!

Here are today's Match Up words:

emancipate................. stir up
belittle .................. manumit
bestir .................... rouse
foment .................... derogate
antecede .................. antedate

Here's the mistake I made:

bestir ____________________ stir up
foment ____________________ rouse

But I should have put:

bestir ____________________ rouse
foment ____________________ stir up

So I only got three pairs right. This has happened before! To bestir IS to stir up, to rouse & to foment! Brick wall

I heard that astronomers are so sick of Uranus jokes that they wanted to change the name of the planet.

They propose renaming it Urectum, after the Greek god of bugger-all. Whistle
