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”.

Tectonics

Noun (used with a singular verb)

    1. The study of the earth's structural features.
    2. The art or science of construction, especially of large buildings.


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....

Review Threads:

Review Thread One: Word For The Day, Thursday 11/14/02: Raffish (Be SURE to check out posts #92 and #111 on this thread!)

Review Thread Two: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/14/03: Roister

Review Thread Three: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/28/03: Obdurate 2. The art or science of construction, especially of large buildings.


TOPICS: Word For The Day
KEYWORDS:
The tectonics involved in fabricating a letter to the Fifth Circuit Court to cover Obama's constitutional ramblings was completed by Eric Holder. One wonders if this helps or hurts the current case the judges are hearing. In an apparent attempt to thwart the judges on some level, the letter was only 2 1/2 pages long. Is that like giving them a raspberry?

Awright! We know this one! After a long day of doing tec stuff (mixing white electricity and red electricity, stuff like that) what tonic does a man need?
Could be hair tonic if they got a good crop on the sod.
Or a good muscle tonic that you don't have to share with the horse, something IQ&S, which is...Iron, Quinine, and Strychnine (in right small amounts).
But best bet is Gin and Tonics got up by someone who knows they ain't paying for the gin.

On Wall Street, moods shift like tectonics
One day they love gold, next bionics
But the faithful bull mobs’
High regard for Steve Jobs
Has made Apple the best of tech tonics

But in a massive tectonic shift, Macs are now vulnerable to Malware through JAVA? And I cannot find anyone to tell me how to find out if my machines have been infected. I have already disabled the java plugins from all of my browsers.

It is a beautiful day here. Bright and sunny, but cool. I have to bake for Sunday. Sugar cookies shaped like Easter eggs with a lemony yellow glaze frosting and decorations.

Cloudy and 73 here-

Cyclical climate change is known
To the researchers of tectonics-
That it is completely natural
Infuriates those prone to moronics

The environazis just can’t abide
What is beyond their control-
It blows up their silly agenda
Of giving the planet a “soul”

It drives them to rabid foaming
When “real” science shines a light
And sends their man-made nonsense
Up in smoke and out of sight

Nobody loves him more than me, but I think he willl be better served by waiting a few years. Although the prospect of him debating Biden is pretty delicious.
