Word of the Day (Happy Bubble Gum Day)

Please enjoy today’s Benjamin Franklin moment for February 4th, 2011. Have a happy Bubble Gum Day. Interesting Fact: A snail can sleep for three years. (That’s even with caffeine.)

“Anger is never without Reason, but seldom with a good One.” Benjamin Franklin

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s extremely deep Word of the Day. The pickle jar falling out of the refrigerator and shatering is good enough for me.

Psalm 59:16

****Bonus Material****

Please enjoy today’s Robert Firth moment which every bit as deep as anything else you may have read:

“… one of the main causes of the fall of the Roman Empire was that, lacking zero, they had no way to indicate successful termination of their C programs.” Robert Firth (No zeros may have had a play in extinction of the dinosaurs.)

Now it is time for the super nifty bonus Word (or Phrase) of the Week! Learn and speak English, it’s the Mother Tongue!

salvo (noun, Pronounced SAL-voh) : a simultaneous discharge of guns or bombs

2a : a sudden burst b : a spirited attack

Used in a sentence: I received a salvo of jeers and putdowns when I first talked about the turtle conspiracy. Now that the turtle attack is underway no one is laughing now.

Extra Double Special Bonus: Jo and Jonathan’s Terrible Turtle Conspiracy
