Good Morning Digital Neighbors & Friends! Happy Tuesday Supporters, Members and Visitors! More Fun with words from The Dictionary of the Strange, Curious & Lovely: 3500 Most Beautiful English Vocabulary Words. This book is more functional than fun, the Little Book of Lost Words was more playful in its presentation with classic artwork. On to the word of day!😊
Barathrum - a deep pit in Athens, into which condemned criminals were tossed; an abyss; hell.
Now use the new word in a sentence. 😉
The Grand Canyon was renamed the National Barathrum into which all the politicians in Washington D. C. were cast. The next election will determine if others individuals might join them at the bottom of the barathrum.
I know, I know, once you begin casting people into the barathrum, where do you stop? I bet many of us could draw a good line after a period of purification. The burning of books, guillotining of heads and the tossing of bodies in the barathrum rarely gets the results you want, but does provide a degree of satisfaction I suppose. Anyways - Happy Tuesday my friends!

Thank you @MinaH for the posting by Neil Oliver, scroll down to find it. It is worth the 10 minutes it takes. I offer my feedback on on the issue of trust and forgiveness.
It used to be the thing talked about 20 years ago, do we now embrace it?
Good Morning Digital Neighbors & Frozen Friends! 7 Fahrenheit here in wintery New Melle. Nothing too long this morning, when it is this cold outside the house drops down into the low 60's and sometimes mid 50's if it lasts too long. A space heater and closed doors keeps where I inhabit a bit warmer. I have nothing to complain about except when I have to venture into the world. How about a limmerick? Most I know are far worse than this one. Enjoy! Happy Thursday Friends!
Bill's snowman was missing a snout
For carrots in shops had run out.
A sausage sufficed
But as it de-iced
Its purpose was cast into doubt!

Any community is only as good as its members, so please see the community "About" section for guidelines as to what I hope will help us enjoy our visits here.😇
Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge.

The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
