My Biggest Grammar Pet Peeve

Abbie's Corner of the World

Thanks to Mary Hiland  for inspiring this post. Like Mary, I understand the importance of good grammar usage, and I do my best to follow all English rules. Of course, if a character in a story uses bad grammar, that’s okay, but if you’re writing a blog post or other narrative piece, it’s important to watch your grammatical P’s and Q’s.

My biggest grammar pet peeve is incorrect usage of the words “lay” and “lie.” When my husband Bill was alive, and I was his caregiver, we struggled with this all the time. He would ask me if he could lay down. I would tell him no, that I would lay him down, or he could lie down, but he could not lay down. This information isn’t included in My Ideal Partner: How I Met, Married, and Cared for the Man I Loved Despite Debilitating Odds, but you’ll…

Pathway Through the Fog Revealed

Good Tuesday morning to all.
I hope everyone is doing fabulous on this crisp fall morning. Here, I’m waking with a fresh, hot, strong cup of coffee and the morning’s email. This is one of my favorite ways to start my day. The night has not yet given way to morning, a blanket of quiet is still wrapped gently round and all is peaceful calm and without much if any sound.
For the last little while I seem to have been lost in a fog of sadness but yesterday despite the rough time Campbell and I had while out and about it lifted and long before bed last night I found myself feeling better than I had in over a week and it appeared that Campbell was feeling better too.
Between what had been a horrible tooth ache, and a fall cold I’d been feeling rotten physically as well as rather depressed over the past few weeks but somehow the exertion of the day’s outing had helped to dispel all the gloom both physical and emotional and the two of us were left with a friskiness not found in quite some time.
Not only did we have that long arduous trip getting home from the store, but we took a great walk around 4 and a shorter one before bed.
Speaking of bed, we didn’t go down around 8 or so to read which has been our way for a while now. Instead we stayed up until nearly 10 and even after Campbell had fallen to sleep snoring as only a soon to be 10-year-old Labrador can do I found myself awake long after.
Feeling the pull of the waxing moon I got out my tarot cards, shuffled them for a while just letting them slip one after another through my hands and as I did I thought about the things I both need and want in my life.
After I was satisfied the deck was shuffled properly I drew three cards. As I turned them over one by one I prayed for wisdom, guidance and strength. Wisdom to show me how to achieve that for which I’d asked, Guidance to show me which pathway to take to come upon those things I’d desired, and strength to see me through until the goals I’d set were achieved.
One by one the cards answered my questions and while I’ll not post the card’s identities because it’s never good to reveal all of one’s magik while one is conducting their work I will say that each card in turn gave me all the information I needed to do each thing I asked.
Did they reveal all the answers? No. Very seldom is that the case. Contrary to popular misconceptions one very rarely knows the complete outcome of a situation until one has lived it. There are many possible outcomes in one’s life and much of what happens within is chosen simply by which pathways we take.
So, on this chili Tuesday morning while the blanket of night is still wrapped protectively around me I pray…
Thank you for the sun.
Thank you when day is done, all our needs, wants, and desires they’re met.
Thank you for what we have and have not yet.
Thank you when this day is through, we will still be we and you will still be you.
Light our path and guide our way.
Give to us what to do and say.
So! Mote! It! Be! Blessid Be! Amen.

GrannyMoon Says Today Is: Tyr’s Day
Tuesday, 23 October 2018
GrannyMoon Says Today Is: Tyr’s Day – Day of Mars…also Ares, Tiwaz,
Tiw (from whom it is named), Tuisco, and Tiu. Tuesday is ruled by Mars,
whose Magickal influences are: Passion, courage, aggression, and
protection. Tuesday comes under the influence of Mars, the planet associated
with vitality, passion, ambition, and raw, unabashed power.
Mars energy makes the mind acute, and the body restless; therefore, on
Tuesday we are likely to exert ourselves physically and take action to
achieve goals. This day is dynamic and high-spirited, and the prevailing
energies may include carelessness and destructiveness as well, so it is good
to be cautious-especially while traveling.
Tuesday – Wear a ruby, star sapphire, or emerald. Use topaz for amulets.
Today’s Magickal Influences ~ Destination, War, Courage, Surgery, Physical
Today’s Goddesses: Aset [Isis], Soorejnaree, Pingalla, Anna, Aine, Danu,
Yngona, Bellona, Aida Wedo, Sun Woman
Perfumes: Hellebore, Carnation, Patchouli
Incense: Lignum Aloes, Plantain
Color of The Day: Red
Colors for Tomorrow: Yellow
Lucky Sign: Tuesday Is The Lucky Day For Aries
Candle: Red

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Music Column – 1989 – America Trip – Hurricane Jerry and San Francisco Earthquake

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Welcome to our adventures and the music that I was listening to each year, that is still on my playlist today.

Most of 1989 passed in a blur with both of us working long hours and apart from the odd weekend away we stayed in London. We did however want to do something to celebrate our wedding anniversary and booked a couple of weeks off in early October. Despite our adventures flying to New Zealand and back the previous year; we decided to go to America to see our friends in Texas and then have a week in San Francisco and tour north of the city including the Napa Valley.

We flew into Houston arriving after the eleven hour flight and stood in line with 400 other arrivals waiting to pass through customs. An announcement came over the tannoy. ‘David and Sally Cronin welcome to Houston, your friends are waiting…

My friends:
I am writing you to inquire if any of you, or know of any individuals or organizations, that would be interested in a workshop on staying safe during the upcoming holiday season.

It will last for about an hour depending on if any questions are asked during it. I will specifically discuss the following;
• How-to keep porch pirates from stealing those gifts you may have saved for all year from being stolen.
• Tips for avoiding being robbed while shopping
• Tips for home safety
• Home security tips during the season
And as I said if you have any questions, then I will attempt to answer those as well.

This would be on a conference call with you or your organization. The cost is minimal for your organization, since I won’t be traveling. The cost is $100 for the hour or so. It will not conclude until all of your questions have been answered.

Write, or call, me back and give me the name and address of the organization, and who I need to discuss this with and I will do the rest. Thank you for your assistance and if I don’t talk to you before the holidays…Have A Great Season!
