Posted: Monday, November 12, 2018 9:54:36 PM
Hey, I like that word Niranjan L.'s new to me!

Thanks DragOnspeaker for the great pict and guys have learned me good!

The longest word that I have known was Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, which seems to have one less letter but one more vowel, and here are the lyrics, which I'm sure you're familiar with...

It's Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious

Because I was afraid to speak when I was just a lad
Me father gave me nose a tweak and told me I was bad
But then one day I learned a word that saved me aching nose
The biggest word you ever heard and this is how it goes
Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

He traveled all around the world and everywhere he went
He'd use his word and all would say there goes a clever gent
When dukes and Maharajahs pass the time of day with me
I say my special word and then they ask me out to tea

So when the cat has got your tongue there's no need for dismay
Just summon up this word and then you've got a lot to say
But better use it carefully or it can change your life
For example
Yes? One night I said it to me girl and now me girls my wife
Oh! And a lovely thing she is too. he he he
She's Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Today, Sunday, 11/11/18 is Veteran's Day... I again salute veterans and TFDers who have served in the Armed Forces, for not just "Talking the Talk, but Walking the Walk"...and i will continue to say...God Bless the U.S.A.
hedy mmm

If tomorrow all the things were gone, I'd worked for all my life
And I had to start again, With just my children and my wife
I'd thank my lucky stars, To be living here today
Cause the flag still stands for freedom, And they can't take that away

And I'm proud to be an American, Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died, Who gave that right to me
And I gladly stand up, Next to you and defend her still today
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land, God bless the USA

From the lakes of Minnesota, To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas, From sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston,, And New York to L.A
Well there's pride in every American heart, And its time we stand and say
That I'm proud to be an American...

Again I think of the rule... wording in a sentence, to emphasize when a comma becomes necessary...
"Let's eat Grandma" d'oh!
"Let's eat, Grandma" Dancing

Definetly, commas save lives!

Thanks for the laugh, FounDit, my friend!

You IS so right!

I forgot, it's a COMPUTER MODEL developed by a Californian who is a PLANETARY SCIENTIST...Wow! what was I thinking?

Can't argue with definite words such as suggested and probably...

Think we could send Mr. Stavenkovic and his fellow scientists/stooges up to Mars? Then we could probably say, "Good Riddance", this is only a suggestion!

Ditto thar...
This reminds me of the necessity of a comma...
"Let's eat Grandma"
"Let's eat, Grandma"
Commas save lives!

He was addressing Raymond. Thankyou Raymond.. There are no pauses...

You are correct, however, 'thank you' are two words.

If I was thanking you I'd say, "Thankyou thar" ...if I was thanking you, I would say "Thank you, hedy", because I'm thanking you...hope I've made sense...

Thank you thar, your responses are succinct, as always. hedy

Seriously? Is this really "In the News" stuff? It's pure hogwash!

TFD's "Quote for the Day" choices are also questionable. Jerome Kaplan Jerome, whom you quote often, is a morose character whose quotes are as depressing as he is...we have brilliant men/women whose quotes are worth 'quoting' ...Einstein, Emerson, Chopin, Helen Keller, Kipling, Agatha Christie, Bach, Billy Graham, James Baldwin, Machiavelli, Thoreau, Tolstoy, Spurgeon, Stevenson, Twain, B.T. Washington, Steve Jobs, Wilde, Lincoln, Cervantes, Aesop, Plato, Van Gouth, Maughan...and so many more!

Please! Reevaluate your choices of 'News' and 'Quotes'...

TFD readers,
I have been asked to continue with my 'Heathy' Series.
Enjoy reading, hedy

❤️ Healthy! Series #8 Bones & Joints Treatments
Before modern science came up with pharmaceuticals to help us maintain our bones and joints, herbal medicine offered an array of possible treatments. Here are some that have been used over the centuries.

Herbs with estrogenic effects:
Declining estrogen is one of the causes of bone loss. Herbs that have estrogenic effects include black cohosh (a well-documented herbal alternative to hormone replacement therapy), dong quai, burdock root, Chinese ox knee root, alfalfa, and motherwort. Red clover, the subject of recent scientific study, has been shown to help increase cortical bone. Numerous studies have confirmed that soy slows bone loss, as well as lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of breast cancer.

Herbs that boost the minerals in our bodies:
Herbalists have traditionally recommended nettle, alfalfa, oatstraw, and slippery elm to enhance the minerals in the body and maintain strong bones. In a 1999 Italian study, horsetail was shown to improve bone density.

Herbs that help to relieve joint pain:
Although it has not been scientifically studied, turmeric has been traditionally prescribed to reduce inflammation and relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Devil’s claw (an African herb) and boswellia (a tree native to India, Africa, and the Middle East, which yields a resin known as sallai guggal) have been the subjects of several studies, but the results have been mixed. Other recent scientific studies have confirmed the traditional use of nettles, willow bark, ginger, St. John’s wort, evening primrose, borage, and black currant as effective analgesics and inflammation suppressors. The remedy most thoroughly studied and most confidently recommended is capsaicin, the pain-relieving compound derived from hot red peppers.

RECIPE: Ruby’s Better Bones Soup
2 tablespoons olive oil
1⁄2 cup onions
chopped 1⁄2 cup carrots
diced 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 14- or 16-ounce can crushed or diced tomatoes
2 quarts chicken or vegetable stock
1 4-ounce can water chestnuts, drained
2 baby bok choy, white and green parts sliced separately
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons mixed dried herbs (try parsley, sage, summer savory, chervil, rosemary)
1⁄2 pound fresh kale, stems removed,
chopped 6-8 ounces hard tofu, cubed

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, sauté onions and carrots for 7-8 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for another minute. Add tomatoes, stock, water chestnuts, bok choy (white parts), bay leaf, and herbs and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add green parts of bok choy and kale and cook until just tender (1-2 minutes). Add tofu and cook another 1-2 minutes. Remove bay leaf and serve hot. Makes 6-8 servings.

I don't know, but to me, the brain imploding is synonomous to Alzheimer's disease...same results!
