  • If you're in a conversation with someone you don't know well and aren't connecting with the other person or feel they're dull, ask them what job they'd choose if money wasn't an issue. It initiates a talk about one's passions, which are rarely dull and are simple to connect to.
     
  • When a friend is upset, ask them one simple question before saying anything else: 'Do you want to talk about it, or do you want to be distracted from it?'

 

 

 

There are exceptions

Not to mention ceiling, conceit, deceit, deceive, inconceivable, receipt, receive and 
transceiver

Ancient societies conceive and perceive efficient deficiencies in the policies and science of glaciers.


If you're really holding on to the "i before e, except after c" ideal, then you'd have to follow Merriam Webster's lead and update it to be more accurate, although much less catchy:

I before e, except after c
Or when sounded as 'a' as in 'neighbor' and 'weigh'
Unless the 'c' is part of a 'sh' sound as in 'glacier'
Or it appears in comparatives and superlatives like 'fancier'
And also except when the vowels are sounded as 'e' as in 'seize'
Or 'i' as in 'height'
Or also in '-ing' inflections ending in '-e' as in 'cueing'
Or in compound words as in 'albeit'
Or occasionally in technical words with strong etymological links to their parent languages as in 'cuneiform'
Or in other numerous and random exceptions such as 'science', 'forfeit', and 'weird'.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Health Update on Sue Woolman Maddux

Thom Kempf and Rick Maddux were swimmers although Rick was two years older.  Thom recently spoke with Rick who is married to Sue Woolman Maddux. 

Thom tells us, with Rick's permission, that Sue has had some health issues, she is doing well physically, but currently is struggling a bit mentally, but health permitting, is really looking forward to attending the Reunion and looks forward to seeing everyone! 

 

 

 

Nothing new today.  Sorry.  Perhaps you could write us a short article.

 

 

We'll wait as you compose your thoughts.

Just write them down and send them in.

 

In the meantime, we've added some filler below . . . as we wait for you patiently.

 

Don't make us regret it!


 

 

FRONT PAGE NEWS
 

Women Who Know Their Place


Retired American Broadcast Journalist Barbara Walters, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan several years before the Afghan conflict. 

She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.  She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. 

Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom. Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked,

“Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?" 

The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes and without hesitation said,

“Land mines."

 

 

 


HOME FRONT NEWS


A friend notes:  I don't know if it's age or being locked up all day during the pandemic and sitting in front of the computer for too long but I swear my mind's become like an Internet browser. Nineteen tabs are open, three of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from.

 

 

 

Another acquaintence tell us:

We've had to put a sign on our door too. It's aimed at deterring cold callers and says -


WELCOME SOLICITORS

This household charges $20 a minute to listen to sales pitches, religious messages, and any other speech you are offering today.

THESE FEES ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE

You hereby acknowledge your agreement to the terms above by knocking on the door or ringing the bell.

 

 

 

Did you ever wake up, kiss the person beside you and feel glad that you're alive?  A friend did it once and was told he wouldn't be allowed on that airline again.

 

 

Bon chance, mes amis. We will meet again.

 

 

Now some important philosophical questions on life .......

 

Why do supermarkets make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front?

 

Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke?

 

Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters?

 

Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in our driveways and put our useless junk in the garage?

 

EVER WONDER... Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

 

Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

 

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? And why do we trust them?

 

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

 

Why isn't there mouse-flavoured cat food?

 

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

 

Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

 

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?


Inquiring minds want to know?

 

 

Thanks Mark!
