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.
Pl - auguries
Middle English augurie, from Old French, from Latin augurium, from augur, augur; see augur.]
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. ;-)

Tis a dreary FRiday in the frozen tundra....if I’m up you can get up. Yet another dusting of snow this morning. See you in class.
Not to be confused with julury, which is of course the various pieces of gold, silver and gems which adorn necks and wrists and fingers.
Drill, Baby! Drill!
LOL A++ I am sure that’s what the administration wants to do to Bob Woodward this morning.
We finished February with some precipitation on 25 of 28 days. But never more than 3 inches of snow on one day, so not too bad. From a shoveling aspect.
I shoveled a couple of inches of snow that had been rained on and it turned to slush. Very heavy job. I am sick of the snow. It snowed on our fire last night. It’s getting old. Not much to shovel this morning though, probably a broom would do the job. Still, every time I go out it snows. I am sick of it. Not an augury for an early spring.
Will the upcoming Ides of March be an augury for this nation, as in Julius Ceasar’s Rome?
Plus today’s commute was kind of hairy, what with all the airplanes falling out of the sky and the criminals let loose from the prisons.
It seems weird to me that even though it is colder than yesterday and flurrying quite a bit, I would rather run outside than hit the treadmill again. Something fun about running while it’s snowing I guess. Mental Floss had some hilarious snowmen on their site yesterday. We won’t get that much.
The Anointed One’s second inaugury
Was loaded with socialist augury
Take stuff from the makers
To give to the takers
When that fails, resort to more perjury
the dumbass still praises him. A+++
Hey those are our amigos, now.
Lots of people hanging on your posts early in the morning, eh?
Guess you better augery them there holes real deep.
(Seriously, if there really were gold in the bottom of the holes that Obama and Biden keep digging us into with their deliberate fiscal policies of failre and debt, I’d be willing to auger the holes myself.
But there’s not even mud down there - just more and more shiittes.
The Lyin’ King plans on entering Jerusalem on the same day (of the Hebrew calendar) as the Historical “Palm Sunday”.
It would be an even more ominous augury if he planned to make the entrance seated upon Michelle’s ample rump.
A+++ the LiarKing has always lied.
