Just for fun
You've met Dan before, we played a nice game of "Name My Blog" over at his place recently. He's blogging his way through Shane Claiborne's "The Irresistible Revolution". In between posts sharing his thoughts on the book, it looks like he's having a little fun.

I picked this up, and personally, would've bet I was 100% "Dixie", y'all. Go figure.

45% Dixie
45% General American English
5% Yankee
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern

What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

And I love his post title today: Gargling, Grace, and Glaciers. Gotta go back and comment on that one....tomorrow.

Looks like today was one for the boys at Pensieve. Tomorrow, I'll reveal the 1, 2, 3s of yesterday's post. Only one person was even close, but it sure was fun seeing your imagination at work (my kids loved it :) ).

Clearly (at least to me) my undiagnosed but suspected A.D.D. is kicking in with my blog. I write like I clean house........Here. There. Stop. Start. It's a wonder I finish anything :/.

Um... Robin... aren't you like missing 5% of something??? LOL! You're only 95% linguistically complete. And forgive the fact that I could even notice something as trivial as that. ;)

Hey! I tried to go and see what kind of American English I speak and the link did not work. So, hook me up! :)

Geez-louise...this was supposed to be a SIMPLE post.

Evidently, the masterminds at Blogthings can't add, Mike...and with my own oversight, I'm qualified to work there. I'd like to think the 5% unaccounted for falls into the d r a w l category. (and welcome!)

The link's fixed.

Y'all come back, now, ya hear?

Hey you crazy dixie chick... thanks for the mention. And, by the way, you didn't happen to find a coupla $5 bills anywhere did you? I think I lost them? (I love reading good news stories about kids). :)

My Photo Name:


Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often) to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...

For the complete explanation, see
my 2/17/06 post.
