    By learning all of these words, I will be much more educated and less likely to give you the opportunity to lambast me.

    Ken, I'll say it again, for the last week or so, it seems like the "Daily Word" has been aimed right at POTUS on RTF!!

    PS I did find my 'cabin' pic referring to Gordon MacQuerrie, and inserted it in that post.

    There are some here that have the vocabulary to tell people to "go get", well you know the rest of the phrase, and some of us that don't have the vocabluary wouldn't even realize what they actually said. It would flow so freely from them that we'd think they were saying something nice.
