Word For The Day, Monday, 6/29/09



In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".

adamantine; adj.

1. utterly unyielding or firm in attitude or opinion. Unyielding; inflexible: "If there is one dominant trait that emerges from this account, it is adamantine willpower" (Eugene Linden). 2. too hard to cut, break, or pierce. 3. like a diamond in luster.

Etymology:1200–1250; ME < L adamantinus < Gk adamántinos. See adamant, -ine 1

Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.

The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....

Re: the ruling against Ms. Sotomayor, I put forth this little ditty:

O my darlin’, O my darlin’, O my darlin’, adamantine
You have lost, now go forever - I’m not sorry, adamantine...

Perhaps it is “coal” a rare material now more precious than other wasteful uses of carbon. Better get our resident geologicialist involved before the issue becomes any more transparent and opinions crystalize.

I’m gonna go out in a while to stimulate the local economy. Rush the turtle is nearly out of food, CG is nearly out of cologne, the hummingbirds need a new feeder, and I just want something new & pretty.

(Robt notes that the shorter and thinner that new & pretty item is, the more CG will be stimulating the local AL economy .....)

it is right up his ally. the huge media attention that the OTHER duke rape case got, when this is a Duke official as perp. it cuts right at the heart of gay adoption, and the black/gay coalition, which is tenuous at best.

I hate killing bees. I’ve never been stung.

The bee keeper said there were at least 7000 (yes) between our stucco wall and the bath area. It’s a pretty large area. Had we waited two weeks, they would have had to tear down the wall and get the comb out of there.

As it was, he just drilled two small holes in the wall, and sprayed inside with some kind of gas. Then he sprayed outside. They could have been the Africanized bees, but it’s hard to tell in the very beginning. Only $164 to have that done. Cyber was in the bathroom listen because the bee keeper said there would be a lot of noise. Cyber said it was like running water. LOL!

The bee keeper had five more appointments after ours which was at 2:00 p.m. Busy little buggers. Kill the Queen and the whole swarm with the exception of the drones would die within days. All bees are female, again with the exception of the drones. If you have an Africanized drone doing it with a honey queen, you’ve got troubles.

So much for my many Sons of B’s!!!

Beautiful pome, BTW.

68-degree high? We’re in the high 80s at night. 105 to 107 tomorrow, but we’re actually not as hot as normal. We should be over 110 by now. The wind has picked up, so we may just get the dust storm before the rain.

Red Dwarf is hysterical. But you have to start from the beginning episode to understand the not so understandable concept of the show. Cyber started me in the middle and kept talking about the cat. I didn’t see a cat.
