Posted on 07/25/2012 10:27:06 AM PDT by tioga
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.
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....

103 Days till we throw the bum out! Sorry, we missed half a day today, but let’s make up for it!
And my air conditioner just died......pray for us. We might melt
In the campaign ad madness
The ‘rats have given a try
To several choices of cynosure
But they continue to deny
The obvious lack of agreement
With each and every source-
Now, they fuel the foolishness
By maligning Romney’s horse
Here, there are lots of horses-
Their owners aren’t usually rich
Maybe Obama’s minions should find
Another reason to whine and bitch
If all my neighbors who own horses and other creatures with hooves were rich, I’d be living in one fine la-de-da neighborhood...
Oh, crap-I hope it is nothing big.
Me too - my husband is headed right now for a part - hopefully that takes care of it.
Oh, crap-I hope it is nothing big.
The U.S.A., once the world’s cynosure
Had apple pie, Chevrolet, Dinah Shore
But the liberal sleaze
Has us rife with disease
I think, in November, we’ll find a cure
May I suggest the next “Word for the Day’’? Maunder.(v.i.) 1. To talk in a rambling, foolish or meaningless way. 2. to move, go, or act in an aimless, confused manner. “Obamas maundering speech left many to wonder as to what he was talking about’’.
A/C is over-rated. Just open a window.
Kidding. Just got back to the hotel and the maid must have left mine on. Good for her.
Central air? Wow, bad news.
Now that’s a horse of a different color. A+++
I pity the poor gov agent assigned to research me on the internet bc I once claimed TEA Party membership. A+++
For sure. A+++
It’s a repeat, but I will put it in my top ten and use it again. Thanks.
The cynosure in these parts today was the 87th annual Cincoteague Pony Swim. I steered clear of there today, but have to go tomorrow and will be back on Friday to watch the return swim.
Very cool. A+++
Those poor beasts must be getting really old.
Three separate times last week one or another of the stallions swam their mares and foals over to Chincoteague - of course they had to be rounded up and brought back over to Assateague!
Kind of a “wash, rinse, and repeat”, eh?
Is “swam their mares” some sort of equestrian euphemism? ;-)
On these islands, you can not only lead a horse to water, you can also make it swim. But only if you're a stallion.
Give it a try if you want.
Not that I know of.........
I’m surrounded by comedians.............
As if that were a bad thing.
It took two trips to the ac supply store but it turned out to be the fan motor and my smart guy repaired it himself..... four hours without air conditioning but it was working by late afternoon. Thanks - I knew you would understand how bad it can get here in the summer.
Yikes that was tough to read
Windows open? I don’t know that ours have ever been opened. ;^)
Hallelujah! You forget that I spent a summer in Houston in 1980 which had record breaking heat at that time. I was very concerned for you! We were there for a trial that summer and lived in the Allen parkway apts in river oaks.
Opening windows is such a PA thang. Honestly there may be 2-3 daysin early spring and late fall where that works otherwise tidies Zero to coolthehouse.i don’t believe in it !
Had 2 spicy chikin biskits for breakfast at Chick-Fil-A. Will be eating at Chick-Fil-A at least once a week for the rest of the year. August 1 is "Chick-Fil-A Day"...I expect they will be overwhelmed.
Let the Obamathugs in Chicago keep Mr. Cathy's store from opening there...it will only further drive up his business.
Xsbaby and I stopped at the drive thru at theYulee, FL Chickfila yesterday just for diet lemonades bc I’m so incensed over this BS. We will def go on 8/1and probably several times in between. let them keep it up and it will drive the majority who support traditional marriage to go there daily!
My daughter and I had chick fil-A yesterday at the mall. We eat there often, but it is usually so crowded - and it still will be here. Hopefully some who pass it by because of the crowds will stop and eat there so they don’t lose a single penny over this.
Xshub predicts colleges will prob be pressuredby protests to close them on campuses. Pretty sure UVA will bc they def have one.
And I’ve thought ahead to my ofc holiday party and imgoing to bring a platter just to explode a few heads.
I think it is a First Amendment issue - and I love the idea of you taking a platter of nuggets!
