Word For The Day, October 2, 2012
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".
1. (before 1872) the temporary platform on which candidates for the British Parliament stood when nominated and from which they addressed the electors.
2. any place from which political campaign speeches are made.
3. the political campaign trail.
4. Also called hustings court . a local court in certain parts of Virginia.
[before 1050; Middle English, Old English < Old Danish hūs-thing house meeting. See house, thing2]
Not going to the hustings. Going back to bed. Been fighting this thing since Friday.
get well soon, soother!
"Please state the nature of the medical emergency..."
Thanks. I was off yesterday and slept all day. I went through all the motions this morning and just did not have the energy to get out the door.
The dog is happy cause everyone’s home now.
no school today?
i have been feeling that i have something in the incipient stages, starting in my chest and vocal cords. for some reason my voice is prone to going. i recall when the kids were little going to the falls church quack center and he threaded something through my nose down to my vocal chords and said that they were strained and that i should stop talking, whispering is worse than talking and go in the steamy shower for 15 min at a time to breathe in the steam. Tell a mother of small children to STOP talking? yeah, right.
Gargle with blessed salt in warm water. Works for me.
that looks really good and you are going to make me jones for it now with that pic!
So Sorry you are feeling ill.
Honey and Lemon and Rest....
And Of COURSE, Chicken Soup are this old vocal teacher’s Rx.
Which is hard if you are a Mom...The most important job in the world!
The Hastings Will Continue and hold a place for you, awaiting your return.
i need to send you Father DeCelles sermon from Sunday. Xshub came home raving about it. i wanted to send it last night, but your email doesn’t pop up on the ipad like it does on my computer, so i will do it now.
I fear for our once great nation and sigh. NUTS! One whose treason in past years would have seen him hung, sits in the Oval Office as on a throne. His attorney general and other assorted thugs sin against the Constitution daily. And the outpouring of shit sung daily by Jay Carney is unprecedented in America, and rivaled only by Baghdad Bob. Fast & Furious, Libya, Egypt? Nothing happened? No Bush mouthpiece could have sung this tune and avoided media scrutiny.
Barack, our brother, is the giver of all things to all people: life, liberty, contraceptives, food stamps, and cell phones. Well, not all people. His real brother lives in a hut, signs outside saying Feed me. But Kenyans cant vote here (although they can run for president) so Obamas real brother is left to the kindness of strangers. Conservative strangers. How that stings. Uh! Brother George, my advice to you: drink heavily. Gin shuts out the pain.
Ooops...I was too HASTY.
The HUSTINGS will continue...
well Soother is the one who’s really feeling sick, i am just feeling like something might be starting, so i don’t feel bad yet! but thanks!
you haven’t graced us with one of those in eons! great job!
So Sorry you are under the weather, Soother!
Anyone else catching one of ArnoldS’s appearances promoting his tell all book? He looks old and worn, pining for Maria and just generally looking like a has been. Amazing. I think all this really broke him.
