Way with Words was supposed to go here! They are after all quotes!

These glorious insults are from an era before the English language was boiled down to four-letter words.



The exchange between Churchill and Lady Astor:
She said, "If you were my husband I'd give you poison."
He said, "If you were my wife, I'd drink it."

- Paul Keating

Might be helpful to those not living in the US, working on their language skills.

A LICK AND A PROMISE


'I'll just give this a lick and a promise,' my mother said as she quickly mopped up a spill on the floor without moving any of the furniture.

'What is that supposed to mean,' I asked as in my young mind I envisioned someone licking the floor with his or her tongue.

'It means that I'm in a hurry and I'm busy canning tomatoes so I am going to just give it a lick with the mop and promise to come back and do the job right later.

'A lick and a promise' was just one of the many old phrases that our mothers, grandmothers, and others used that they probably heard from the generations before them. With the passing of time, many old phrases become obsolete or even disappear. This is unfortunate because some of them are very appropriate and humorous. Here is a list of some of those memorable old phrases:




1. A Bone to Pick (someone who wants to discuss a disagreement)

2. An Axe to Grind (Someone who has a hidden motive. This phrase is said to have originated from Benjamin Franklin who told a story about a devious man who asked how a grinding wheel worked. He ended up walking away with his axe sharpened free of charge)

3. One bad apple spoils the whole barrel (one corrupt person can cause all the others to go bad if you don't remove the bad one)

4. At sea (lost or not understanding something)

5. Bad Egg (Someone who was not a good person)

6. Barking at a knot (meaning that your efforts were as useless as a dog barking at a knot.)

7. Barking up the wrong tree (talking about something that was completely the wrong issue with the wrong person)

8. Bee in your bonnet (To have an idea that won't let loose )

9. Been through the mill (had a rough time of it)

10.Between hay and grass (Not a child or an adult)

11. Blinky (Between sweet and sour as in milk)

12. Calaboose (a jail)

13. Catawampus (Something that sits crooked such as a piece of furniture sitting at an angle)

14. Dicker (To barter or trade)

15. Feather in Your Cap (to accomplish a goal. This came from years ago in wartime when warriors might receive a feather they would put in their cap for defeating an enemy)

16. Hold your horses (Be patient!)

17. Hoosegow ( a jail)

18. I reckon (I suppose)

19. Jawing/Jawboning (Talking or arguing)

20. Kit and caboodle (The whole thing)

21. Madder than an wet hen (really angry)

22. Needs taken down a notch or two (like notches in a belt usually a young person who thinks too highly of himself and needs a lesson)

23.No Spring Chicken (Not young anymore)

24.Persnickety (overly particular or snobbish)

25.Pert-near (short for pretty near)

26.Pretty is as pretty does (your actions are more important than your looks)

27.Red up (clean the house)

28.Scalawag (a rascal or unprincipled person)

29.Scarce as hen's teeth (something difficult to obtain)

30.Skedaddle (Get out of here quickly)

31. Sparking (courting)

32.Straight >From the Horse's Mouth (privileged information from the one concerned)

33.Stringing around, gallivanting around, or piddling (Not doing anything of value)

34.Sunday go to meetin' dress (The best dress you had)

35.We wash up real fine (is another goodie)

36.Tie the Knot (to get married)

37.Too many irons in the fire (to be involved in too many things)

38.Tuckered out (tired and all worn out)

39. Under the weather (not feeling well this term came from going below deck on ships due to sea sickness thus you go below or under the weather)

40.Wearing your 'best bib and tucker' (Being all dressed up)

41. You ain't the only duck in the pond (It's not all about you)




Well, if you hold your horses, I reckon I'll get this whole kit and caboodle done and sent off to you. Please don't be too persnickety and get a bee in your bonnet because I've been pretty tuckered out and at sea lately because I'm no spring chicken. I haven't been just stringin' around and I know I'm not the only duck in the pond, but I do have too many irons in the fire. I might just be barking at a knot, but I have tried to give this article more than just

A LICK & A PROMISE!

Valentine's Day Trivia
Valentine's Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France and Australia.
Love is something, which makes everyone and everything, flow and perhaps there is no living being whom this bug has never bitten. May this Valentine's Day be filled with love, understanding, and contentment as you journey through life with all your near and dear ones.

History Trivia
1. February 15th was the date of the Roman festival of Lupercalia - where young men held a lottery to decide which girl would be theirs.
2. During Medieval times, girls ate unusual foods on St. Valentine's Day to have a dream of their future husband.
3. In the middle Ages, people believed that the first unmarried person of the opposite sex you met on the morning of St. Valentine's Day would become your spouse.
4. In the middle of the 17th century even married people took a Valentine - not always their legal other half!
5. Alexander Graham Bell applied for his patent on the telephone, on the Valentine's Day, 1876.
6. It wasn't until 1537 that St. Valentine's Day was declared an official holiday. England's King Henry VIII declared February 14th a holiday in 1537 for the first time.
7. On February 14, 1779, the natives of Hawaii murdered Captain James Cook the great English explorer and navigator.
8. Some people believed that if a woman saw a robin-flying overhead on Valentine's Day, it meant she would marry a sailor and if she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a very rich person.
9. The Taj Mahal at Agra, India is perhaps the most splendid gift of love. Built by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in memory of his beautiful wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
10. In England, the Romans, who had taken over the country, had introduced a pagan fertility festival held every February 14. After the Romans left England, Pope Gelsius, who established St. Valentine's Day as a celebration of love in 496 A.D abolished the pagan ritual.
11. In Victorian times it was considered bad luck to sign a Valentine's Day card.
12. In 1929 in Chicago, gunmen in the suspected employment of organized-crime boss Al Capone murder seven members of the George "Bugs" Moran North Siders gang in a garage on North Clark Street. The so-called St. Valentine's Day Massacre stirred a media storm centered on Capone and his illegal Prohibition-era activities and motivated federal authorities to redouble their efforts to find evidence incriminating enough to take him off the streets.
13. In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who their valentines would be. They would wear these names on their sleeves for one week. To wear your heart on your sleeve now means that it is easy for other people to know how you are feeling.
14. February 15th was the date of the Roman festival of Lupercalia - where young men held a lottery to decide which girl would be theirs.
15. During Medieval times, girls ate unusual foods on St. Valentine's Day to have a dream of their future husband. In the middle Ages, people believed that the first unmarried person of the opposite sex you met on the morning of St. Valentine's Day would become your spouse.
16. In the middle of the 17th century even married people took a Valentine - not always their legal other half!
17. Alexander Graham Bell applied for his patent on the telephone, on the Valentine's Day, 1876.
18. It wasn't until 1537 that St. Valentine's Day was declared an official holiday. England's King Henry VIII declared February 14th a holiday in 1537 for the first time.
19. On February 14, 1779, the natives of Hawaii murdered Captain James Cook the great English explorer and navigator.
20. The act of kissing can be traced back to primitive times, when mothers fondled their children, much as mothers do today.
21. Much later, in the sixth century, society apparently accepted the custom of kissing between adults as an expression of their affection.
22. Giving flowers dates back to the 1700s when Charles II of Sweden introduced the Persian custom of "the language of flowers" to Europe.
23. Centuries ago, a woman would drop her handkerchief in front of the man she liked. This was a form of encouragement to him, and if he picked it up for her an introduction could be made.
24.In England, the Romans, who had taken over the country, had introduced a pagan fertility festival held every February 14. After the Romans left England, Pope Gelsius, who established St. Valentine's Day as a celebration of love in 496 A.D abolished the pagan ritual.
25. In the Middle Ages, most people couldn't read or write. Important documents were signed with an X and kissed in order to show themselves trustworthy. The kiss has since come to be represented by an X.

Statistic Trivia
1. About 3% of pet owners will give Valentine's Day gifts to their pets.
2. In the United States, 64 percent of men do not make plans in advance for a romantic Valentine's Day with their sweethearts.
3. 15% of U.S. women send themselves flowers on Valentine's Day.
4. In the United States over 1 billion valentine cards are sent each year. That's the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas.
5. Parents get 1 out of every 5 valentines.
6. Women buy 85% of all valentines.
7. 73% of people who buy flowers for Valentine's Day are men, while only 27 percent are women.

Romantic Trivia
1. Famous Valentines Day weddings - The Captain & Tennille, Elton John & Renate Blauel, Leeza Gibbons & Stephen Meadows, Meg Ryan & Dennis Quaid, Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia & Deborah Koons, Roseanne, of Rosanne & Ben Thomas, Prince &
Mayte Garcia, Sharon Stone & Phil Bronstein, Diane Ladd & Robert Charles Hunter.
2. In Wales, wooden love spoons were carved and given as gifts, Hearts, keys and keyholes were favorite decorations on the spoons. The decoration meant, "You unlock my heart!"
3. The Empire State Building in New York City played a prominent role in the movie Sleepless in Seattle. This year 15 couples will take (or renew) their vows on the 80th floor of this famous landmark.
4. In Wales, love spoons of wood were carved and given as gifts on February 14th. Hearts, keys and keyholes formed the favorite theme of decorations on the spoons, which together symbolized- "You unlock my heart!"
5. Some people believed that if a woman saw a robin-flying overhead on Valentine's Day, it meant she would marry a sailor and if she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a very rich person.

Principles

There are times I think I'm doing things on principle,
but mostly I just do what feels good. But that's a principle, too.

RED SKELTON'S RECIPE
FOR THE PERFECT MARRIAGE



1. Two times a week we go to a nice restaurant, have a
little beverage, good food and companionship.
She goes on Tuesdays, I go on Fridays.

2. We also sleep in separate beds.
Hers is in California , and mine is in Texas ....

3. I take my wife everywhere,
but she keeps finding her way back.

4. I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary.
"Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said.
So I suggested the kitchen.

5. We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

6. She has an electric blender, electric
toaster and electric bread maker.
She said "There are too many gadgets, and no place
to sit down!" So I bought her an electric chair.

7. My wife told me the car wasn't running well
because there was water in the carburetor.
I asked where the car was. She told me, "In the lake."

8. She got a mud pack and looked great for two days.
Then the mud fell off.

9. She ran after the garbage truck, yelling, "Am I too late
for the garbage?" The driver said, "No, jump in!".

10. Remember: Marriage is the number one cause of divorce.

11. I married Miss Right. I just didn't know her
first name was 'Always'.

12. I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months.
I don't like to interrupt her.

13. The last fight was my fault though.
My wife asked, "What's on the TV?"
I said, "Dust!".


Can't you just hear him say all of these?

I love it. These were the good old days when humour
didn't have to start with a four-letter word.
It was just clean and simple fun.
And he always ended his programmes with the words,

"And May God Bless", with a big smile on his face.

I posted this quote on Facebook a few weeks ago - it really hits home right now.

"For those rebuilding right now, a quote from Life as a House: "I always thought of myself as a house. I was always what I lived in. It didn't need to be big. It didn't even need to be beautiful. It just needed to be mine. I became what I was meant to be. I built myself a life. I built myself a house.""

Give yourself a gold star for everything you do today.

Grow a milk mustache.

Open a pack of cupcakes and give one to a friend even though you wanted both of them for yourself.

Have a staring contest with your cat.

Kiss a frog just in case.

Make a face the next time somebody tells you "no."

Ask "Why?" a lot.

Believe in fairy tales.

Have someone read you a story.

Wear your favorite shirt with your favorite pants even if they don't match.

Do a cartwheel.

Hide your vegetables under your napkin.

Make a "slurpy" sound with your straw when you get to the bottom of a milkshake.

Sit really still for as long as the dog (or cat) is asleep in your lap.

Find some pretty stones and save them.

Stick your head out the car window and moo if you see a cow.

Walk barefoot in wet grass.

Giggle at nude statues in a museum.

Make cool screeching noises every time you turn.

Count the colors in a rainbow.

Fuss a little, then take a nap.

Take a running jump over a big puddle.

Giggle a lot for no real reason.

Do that tap-someone-on-the-shoulder-while-you-stand-on- their-opposite-side-and-they-turn-around-and-no-one's- there thing.

Enjoy your all-time favorite candy-bar. (Forget you've heard of calories!)

Throw something and when it lands make a cool exploding bomb noise.

Squish some mud between your toes.

Buy yourself a helium balloon.

Put an orange slice in your mouth, peel side out, and smile at people.

Be a kid again...

William Makepeace Thackeray (18 July 1811 – 24 December 1863) was an English novelist of the 19th century. He was famous for his satirical works, particularly Vanity Fair, a panoramic portrait of English society.



The two most engaging powers of an author are to make new things familiar, familiar things new. 


The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. 


There are a thousand thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up a pen to write.

What money is better bestowed than that of a schoolboy's tip? How the kindness is recalled by the recipient in after days! It blesses him that gives and him that takes. 

When I walk with you I feel as if I had a flower in my buttonhole.
