Larry from Dutchforce Electronics Forum commented on a show:

“The gal has an almost familiar sound to some of her “O” and “OO” vowels .
at one point (the beginning) it was reminiscent of an area close to where i live . it was brief and then she “shifted” slightly .
it would not take much for her to do a northern minnesota church lady voice .”

Damien rants about www.poetry.com being a scam. They aren’t in it to create a poetry community but to rather spam innocent and hopeful poets. Be aware!

Please find below an article that we at Oedb.org think you and your readers would be interested in reading, the post “The Worst Books By the Best Authors” ( Click here).
We’d appreciate it if you would take a look at the article and consider sharing it with your readers. Thanks so much for your time!

Prompt:

Write down a memory from your grandparents. Did they have a story they told and re-told? And your initial reaction was “not the story about Grandpa and the bear again”. This time, remember that old story and write it down. See what happens from there. I know, maybe nothing.

Word of the Week:

Definition of TROTH
1
: loyal or pledged faithfulness : fidelity 2
: one’s pledged word ; also : betrothal
Examples of TROTH
1.
2.
Origin of TROTH
Middle English trouth, from Old English trēowth — more at truth
First Known Use: 12th century

Tortured Sentences:

“The man telling this story has no credit from the beginning of the story, because you learn that he loves cats and has several of them and that he is a very predigests man he calls one of his cats nigger man, if that won’t make a person mad.”  The racism apparent in Lovecraft’s “The Rats in the Walls” can easily make any student angry.  But this sentence sends a reader the following message: the narrator is a bad person because he loves cats.  I think my cats would disagree with this.

Shout Outs:

Adam from last week with his e.g. question pointed out Ugg is not a Norn word.
