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.
[French : bon, good + vivant, present participle of vivre, to live.]
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....

muerte should be mort
Got my French and my Spanish and my HTML confused.
“Come to Jesus” moment! Glad to see it.
A little late for those he banned though.
Are the rest of you getting that odius Tom Barrett ad before the song plays? Or, is that just a special gift for those of us who have a Wisconsin IP address? Trust me, we do NOT want Tom Barrett as our Governor in Wisconsin. Please, no Barrett.
Hopefully, they can come back. Some have already, under other screen names. The FR discourse has suffered in the absence of some of the great old names who were here in the beginning. Some have died, some have gotten tired, some have been banned — but I miss them all.
I’m not seeing any ads.
I guess I’m just lucky. On my computer an obnoxius Tom Barrett ad pops up accusing our Governor Walker of being anti-woman. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The incompetent Barrett is running in a recall to try to unseat Walker.
It’s “We can’t Barrett”
Does a mort-gage tell you how long you have left to live?
Or it gages how long you have to pay!
I heard that the word mortgage origninated from the phrase death gamble. If you died before you were paid off the debt extinguished with you. Not sure if that is accurate.
Interesting. I’ve been cautiously engaging with some who are advocating 3rd party nonsense. Good to know that I probably won’t be banned for wanting to remove Obama for our only realistic option.
Did you hear it from a friend who heard it from a friend?
