Word For The Day, May 14, 2013
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. A quack doctor
2. A charlatan
[157080; < early Dutch (now kwakzalver ); see quack1 , salve, -er1
I must apologize to the fans of the Maple Leafs. Apparently you had the series in hand until I decided to tune in for the final 5 minutes.
LOL. Whew, if I had a nickle for every time that has happened to us : /
Good morning ya’ll, and may God bless.
Apparently the quacksalver members of the media who have always had Obama’s back have finally discovered that he sees them as an enemy as well.
Who the hell is it that said “it’s only AP phones he is bugging”? Horsefeathers. AP is just the first to be revealed.
Will the Pubs impeach him now??? No.
She’s cute! Did she let you sleep last night?
Mrs. Clinton, the lying quacksalver
Said Benghazi just didn’t involve ‘er
But Greg Hicks’ testimony
Proved that Hillary’s a phony
Not one word that he said did absolve ‘er
When I tell you “I’m sorry” after you read the first two jokes on my homepage, I am a quacksalver.
Can’t say I’ve ever heard that one.
My chickens are now in a larger pen, still in the basement. My wife went downstairs yesterday and one of them was out of the are they were in. Now they have a roof and more room to move around.
Yes, the crepe is hanging in our Mississauga office today....
And speaking of a close anagram, I’m sure certain fans of another former first-round team have some strong thoughts about the quacksalvers that “ru n” the League.
What kind of creep is hanging around your office today?
I did sleep. She awakened periodically and made mewling noises, but she really doesn’t bark much. Her kennel was dry and clean in the morning. She ran right over to a training pad and peed a number of times after she got out of the kennel. I took her out later and she ran for the grass and did the same and pooped. She seems to be trained pretty good.
Oh, how cute is that?
I’m not there, but some may be hanging coach Randy Carlyle in effigy, or perhaps some Leafs’ player they hold responsible for the collapse last night
That murderous Quicksalver, Gosnell.
his lust for killing babies he could not quell.
He will never again
see life out of a pen
until in eternity he rots in hell.
So far the little pup has not eaten, nor has she had much to drink. I keep encouraging her, but she turns up her nose. I am beginning to get worried.
Do you have the same food she was being fed?
Yes, we went straight to Pet Smart and bought it last night. Same exact package. The breeder called ahead to make sure they had it.
I’d say put some butter on her paws, but I guess that only works for cats.
We tried peanut butter, our Missy had loved it. She was not interested.
I wouldn’t worry. She’ll eat when she’s hungry. You can syringe some water into her mouth if she goes more than 8 hrs without voiding.
let her get her bearings, she will eat when she is good and hungry. mine don’t eat if they are nervous or upset. She is in a new home with new people and her siblings and the rest of her family are not with her, it’s only natural she would be a bit anxious.
Breeder fed all three remaining puppies from same bowl. She had no idea how much this puppy ate.
Well that's true of why there was a game 7, but last night was all the Caps fault.
Ovi then backtracked a little, going from blaming the refs to the entire Washington Capitals roster, including himself. "Its very frustrating. Thats the whole point; you have to win the games and try to win the Cup. We have a great coaching staff, good group of guys who support each other. It doesnt matter what happen, we not yelling at each other, nobody was pointing finger like its your fault we lose the game. Its everybodys fault. All guys are at fault. My fault, Backies, Ribss everybody. Its not about one person or two persons, its about the team. We dont get team success in game seven and game six. Its blame on us."
She is so tiny she doesn’t need much anyway. I cooked eggs for my little dog for last night and today since I think his throat might still be a little raw. He passed his post-op exam just now and the doc added even more meds. He has a box of them like an old lady with a printed schedule for each day. He gets some meds every 2 hours while awake.
your new baby is very sweet!
You know as much as he sounds like Tonto when he talks, he still has a better grasp of English than Datysuk who’s been here for about 15 years at least.
i think his grasp is pretty good, one of the quotes i saw attributed to him as to what happened last night...”we sh!t ourselves.” It was during the NHL awards show two years ago that Ovie said much the same thing about Dasyuk, he was making fun of Malkin’s english after his acceptance speech and said, well he’s still better than Datsyuk!
Huh. Tried one of her puppy snacks and she ate it up pretty fast. She just doesn’t want her puppy food, yet. Got the puppy snacks to lure her into the kennel. Worked with our last dog, till it didn’t...
if i am anxious or upset, i may not have the appetite for dinner, but i could probably choke down a piece of chocolate so.... ; )
I am not worried since she gobbled up her snack. LOL Vet’s office almost didn’t take her.....I mentioned my dog that died some weeks back and they agreed right away. Phew. Guess they are not taking any new patients otherwise. They have 4 or 5 vets, yet still not taking any new cases. Interesting. Dr. Roberts attends our church, saved Peanut’s life and was there when we took Missy in that last time. I didn’t want another vet.
Watching Carney now....really, really want one more scandal. Cannot wait. Probably Friday if it’s coming?
oh, you should have seen her perk up this morning when she met the 7 year old. he went up our stairs and she hightailed it right up behind him. She romped and jumped and circled him. too cute. Tobbe melted right away and loved her. we hadn’t even gotten any gates out thinking she was too small to make it up. of course, she couldn’t get back down.
Weren't they all?
I am confident that the Singing Nun was drug free. ;^)
What a delightful word! I’m sorry that I did not check in earlier, but I decided to sleep in. I must be getting better because I’ve slept right through my next pill times — 3 times.
I saw my surgeon yesterday, and he is no quacksalver. I got thubs up from both the surgeon and the PT. I get 3 more weeks of PT at 2X a week. I can drive if I want to. I’m stil tentative about driving. I have to be sure that I can lift that leg and hit the brake in an emergency.
No more narcotics. Approved to use Aspercreme, although the doctor has never heard of anyone else using it. In fact it is recommended that I used MORE of it and apply it directly to my scar because it has aloe in it. I’m supposed to rub it in harder than I eally want to.
Vary tough words to utter under the circumstances, I’ll give him a lot of credit for that.
It must’ve been difficult to realize even before two periods were done that your season is over At least it didn’t come crashing down within 10 minutes as it did in Boston for Toronto — not much consolation though, and it probably doesn’t sting any less.
I guess the next big East matchup* TPTB are looking for is Crosby vs. the Blueshirts (Unless they want to play the sympathy ploy a bit more re BOS.)
If you want to have some fun, look at #scandaldraft. It’s hilarious.
There’s always the Jagr angle with Boston. That and they stole our colors. ;-)
so hard to keep track of his whereabouts, he needs to have a LOWJACK installed so one knows where to find him!
Do you suppose that beneath that wacky expression is a cold and calculating operator who could clear the field taking out not only the president but also his big 2016 rival?
Second look at Joe Biden, evil genious?
Anybody else see that we finally got to see “the mother” of “How I Met Your Mother” fame yesterday?
It was underwhelming. I guess when you wait that long...
The show is a shell of itself. I guess we have one more year of it.
