Word For The Day, Tuesday March 11, 2014
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".
quinquennial [kwin-kwen-ee-uhl, kwing-]
1. of or lasting for five years.
2. occurring every five years.
3. something that occurs every five years.
4. a fifth anniversary.
5. a five-year term in office.
6. a quinquennium.
[ 142575; late Middle English < Latin quīnquenni ( s ) of five years + -al1 ]
el retraso [reh-TRAHS-oh]
Hubo un retraso de dos horas en Chicago.
There was a two-hour delay in Chicago.
Hay no retraso hoy.
No hay retraso hoy.
Politics again, eh?
Well, let me say that the current administration has not done anything the average five-year old could not have accomplished with equal flair and panache.
The first Moslem Communist Tyrant-by-Fraud has continued
this with his Executive pen, which is now the site of
ALL POWER in the USA.
For example, Obama's Climate Five-Year Plan, and
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
Another chapter in the decline of civilization.
Quitting smoking has been on my quinquennial for about 30 years now, I really need to get it done.
So after the quinquennial of zero, we have followed with a lustration of all things conservatives and Americans in general hold dear.
Look at it from a financial standpoint, in how much fishing gear and how many trips you could take if you weren’t blowing the money away on smokes. You just need the right motivation and LOTS of distraction and substitute activities.
I like how you think!
What kind of dog stood by and allowed that???
A dog that knows his place, obviously. Must have been scratched once or twice.
Jules would be afraid of a cat simply bc he’s never encountered one before. had him to the vet for his well checkup yesterday and he is 28 lbs. The vet said that 2-3 lb of that is fur bc he is a hairy beast! but he is def at the top end of cavaliers for size and chan is the petite end, she weighs 14 lbs or so, half his size. She did not need to be drained yet, as of yesterday, so the inject-able lasix seems to be slowing the fluid accumulation some.
The vet told us to get River to lose some weight. So we are trying to give him more food and less snacks/scraps.
They have low calorie food too that works well. When we had to get the big dog’s weight down, I just reduced the amount of food by 25%. We don’t do treats or snacks because they do tend to make dogs fat. Maybe a once a week milkbone but that’s it. Cutting his food ration helped him to lose slowly. Increasing activity helps a lot too, with at least one daily walk. That’s all we could do with him when it was suspected he had heartworms. Now he gets more activity.
I saw that story yesterday.
In PA most of the revenue from tickets goes elsewhere, so there is much less incentive for speed trap towns.
And still no radar guns for local cops.
We have, or is it had, a few towns like that one in Ohio.
Just a speed trap really.
