Word For The Day, Thursday, May 2, 2013 – panegyric


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".

panegyric; noun. a lofty oration or writing in praise of a person or thing; eulogy. 2. formal or elaborate praise.Origin: 1590–1600; < Latin, noun use of panēgyricus of, belonging to a public assembly < Greek panēgyrikós, equivalent to panḗgyr ( is ) solemn assembly ( pan- pan- + -ēgyris, combining form of ágyris gathering; cf. category) + -ikos -ic



The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

Subbing for the Truth?

You can’t handle the truth; but not to worry; you won’t have to. Today will be a day of Panicked Gyrations from Washington and the lick-spittle Press, running around with their hair on fire because Putin is using unconventional warfare, called diplomacy, instead of the expected thug tactics with which they are more comfortable.

Good Morning!

Panegyric

To break this down for any sluggos who have not had the benefit of phootonic spelling: tending to pans and gyrations, panegyric. Try thinking of Martha Stewart doing the bossa nova while cooking up a batch of crème purina la canine. It’s all good.

Didn’t watch it, had no intention of listening to a word from him. We were celebrating the job offer that xsteen’s boyfriend got yesterday, which means they can move forward towards getting engaged etc.

subbing today for the Truth, who is at Disneyworld in his role as GRANDPAP.

Grandkids are truly the Fountain of Youth. I'm doubly fortunate that my youngest son will be 12 in a few months. Those two really keep me in a youthful state of mind.

I had the great pleasure of watching my 3 YO grandson on Monday. We wore each other out with numerous games of "Steal Opa's Seat", while enjoying a continuous loop of "Cars 2". He zonked out at 3, and woke up over 2 hours later (a rare occurrence).

On the anniversary of 9/11, Obama dithers, procrastinates, and obfuscates, yet the dhimmis of the Lamestream media slavishly continue to offer him panegyrics.


America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

what is physically possible isn’t necessarily morally proper or in the best interest of the child.
we are attending a wedding this weekend of one of xsboy’s 21 yo St James classmates. This young man and his girlfriend gave birth to a beautiful little boy 3 years ago this November. Both families are Catholic and extremely pro-life. The parents had the couple get married by a justice of the peace immediately. Both Stephen and his gf continued to live in their childhood homes and the baby went back and forth between them. Both are in college. They did the pre-cana classes and are getting married in church this weekend.xsboy is coming home from school to attend the wedding. he has hockey practice on Friday PM, so he intends to get up and leave by 6 am Sat to make the wedding.

Done by lunchtime-how convenient is that-you can try everything out...

I have the TV off now
While I work on a bid-
So I don’t have to see
Obama acting like a kid

On today, of all days
I just don’t want to see
Him there at the pentagon
Playing hey-look-at-me

The panegyrics of the media
Praising him near and far
Are offensive on 9-11,
As he longs for another war...

I did a number on my back hauling stuff too heavy for me out of the study yesterday, too impatient to wait for my compadre and helpers-I have no excuse for exceeding my limitations when part of my job is to keep others from doing that. So I’m doing invoices, working on a bid for a little job, and glad I have plenty of large Salonpas patches...

For Obama, the Press is panegyric
They’ll avoid anything that’s satiric
Now it’s one massive scam
But they don’t give a damn
That for America, his plan is Pyrrhic.

Thank you! Since my compadre called to say that the carpenter and his kid who had been working with me are building a shed today and tomorrow, I think I’ll recline in the recliner with a favorite book for awhile-a rare privilege...

with heat or cold on your back? i find with my periformis that i much prefer to sit on ice. when i had the hip replacements i really liked heat. i don’t know which is for what, but the chiro def said he was in favor of ice for inflammations, and that biofreeze he sold also helps.
I had another session of the dry needling for my leg last week at PT with disastrous results. I was almost back to where i had been and i have progressed far from April when this first struck. yesterday I had an excellent therapeutic massage with the woman that the chiro recommended back in April> i have seen her literally once a week since. she is fantastic. i told her that leg was bad and she went to town on it, elbows right in the butt muscle where the periformis is etc. I feel so much better today.

There is no chiropractor within 30 miles of here-if there was, I’d have gone as soon as I realized what a dumb thing I’d done...

I have gone to the same acupuncturist for over 25 years- ever since the original injury-but he is 50 miles away. those patches are neither hot or cold-the active ingredients are menthol and methyl salicyclate-they are supposed to work for about 12 hours, but I’ve found them effective for 8-it will do for the couple days I need to get over this...
