My Grampy always had great advice for the family.

One thing that stood out in my mind, was him telling me to "Get knowledgable'.

"Go out and TAKE that knowledge!" Find out the origins of a word.


Pretty much once a week, I like to take out the ol' Dictionary and expand my Brain Lingo, as I like to call it. Then, re-arrange the word down to smaller words.

For example:

The word PEOPLE, can contain many other words:

pep, pop, pope, pole, pol, plop, peel, ope, lope, lop, eel....

I love walking, and chewing gum at the same time. When I'm online with you guys, mabey waiting for a response to one of my threads, I'll have a few windows opened.

One of my choice places to visit is:

I absolutely LOVE the Word Whomp games. Just click on the above link, look on the left side: 'Find a Game', Click "Word Games'...and VOILA!

All games are FREE!

Word Whomp not only has levels, but a 'timer' as well!

This game is not ONLY educational, but fun as hell!

Challenge Yourself!

You'll be surprised at what you DO know.

There are 3 levels on Whompy. I got bored with the frst 2, and have been with level 3 for some time. Plus the points are better on the that level too!

1,652,360 points to date

Theme song of the 'The Good, The Bad, The Ugly' playing off in the distance....Ducky's eyes squint from under her fedora. Her dusty shawl waves around in the breeze. The clock shows 1 minute to 12. Ducky has her hand clenched tightly on the wireless mouse, ready to click furiously...
