A few weeks ago Praful Thakkar had a contest asking for his followers to guess a list price on a home.  I submitted by WAG (wild A$$ guess) and never thought anything about it.  This morning I received a email from him telling me I had won. He asked for my mailing address so he could send me a small token of my having the closest answer to the price of the home.What a wonderful surprise so early in the morning. Don't know about you but I'm so happy I finally won something, now today it is off to buy a lottery ticket, you just never know...

Louis Schwitzer was born in Bielitz, Austria-Hungary back in 1880. He emigrated to the United States before WWI. I don’t have a lot of information as to his education however, what I can tell you is that he worked as an engineer designing hydraulics for use in bus transportation. He was also a pioneer in automotive cooling fans, water pumps, oil pumps and the turbocharger.Because of his work he made a small fortune in business and became a philanthropist. The University of Indianapolis bears his name as does the women’s dormitory at the nearby Butler University. He died in 1967 at 87 years old. however, can you tell me what he will be noted in the history books for? Well as usual you’re in luck. He won the first automobile race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway which was a blistering 5...

Now sit back and enjoy the post for the day.Na’ura was born in Crawford County, Illinois in either 1824 or 1825 the true date is unknown to Silas and Lucy. The family moved to Texas where a group of Comanche, Kiowa and Kichai Indians attacked the group killing almost everyone except Na’ura. It is not certain she could have been anywhere from 8 to 11 years’ old. She soon integrated into the tribe. Being so young she forgot her original ways and became Comanche in every sense she married Peta where it is reported they enjoyed a happy marriage.As a tribute to her Peta (as was the custom...

  I like saying “gramercy” often do you? I do I really do like saying this.  Although I don’t actually say gramercy I do say its meaning.  We all say this some for one reason and others for another but the point is we all say it.  I like to say it when someone says something nice about me or the job I’ve done for them.  If you haven’t figured it out the meaning of (gre mur’se) is thank you very much; many thanks.  So now that you know the meaning when do you use gramercy?

  Have you ever walked into a “mephitic” home? Don’t know about you but I sure have.  Actually I’ve done it enough I don’t want to do it again but I know I will.  To do this just brings back bad memories.  There was one time I opened the door and never went inside because of this.  So I guess by now you want to know the meaning so here goes (me fit’ ik) bad-smelling; poisonous; noxious.  Now think and tell me how many times you have encountered this.  What say you?

  I’ve known some “jackanapes” have you? While I was looking up jackfruit which AR uses sometimes I saw this word.  I knew and still know some people like this.  Some I look forward to seeing and some not so much.  So with that out of the way my question to you is how many do you know and are you looking forward to seeing them again.  So without further adieu the meaning of (jak’ e naps’) is a conceited, insolent, presumptuous fellow.  Now what say you?

  Alcohol and accidents. This was changed but you’ll get the idea… Please take care of yourself. A recent joint study conducted by the Department of Health and the Department of Motor Vehicles indicates that 18% of traffic accidents are alcohol related. This means that the remaining 82% are caused by idiots who drink water, coffee, tea, carbonated drinks, juices, and eat yogurt and stuff like that. Therefore, beware of those who do not drink alcohol. They cause more than six times as many accidents. This message is sent by someone who worries about your well being...

  Have you seen a “jetty” lately? Now, now let’s not go jumping to conclusions as you know words can have different meanings.  Therefore you see this daily even if you’re not around water.  Do I have your attention?  Most of you would assume the meaning of (jet’ e) would be a kind of wall built out into the water to restrain currents, protect a harbor or pier.  It also might mean a landing pier.  Now for the meaning I have chosen; an overhanging part of a building.  So now I ask you have you seen a jetty lately?  What say you?

  Are we operating under a “pandect”? No I don’t think we are because this is changing every year.  The attorneys need to have something to do and they are good at it.  The problem I have is the agents who make these possible and required.  Now for the meaning of (pan’dekt) a complete body of laws; legal code.  The laws keep changing because of agents doing something they know they shouldn’t do and therefore making it possible for the law to change or a new one to be enacted.     What say you?

  This was just brought to my attention so I checked it out and it is true.  I put my own slant so not to copy someone else’s’ work   Beginning January 1, 2009 the Dallas Police Department will begin enforcing the Uninsured Motorist Ordinance, approved by the Dallas City Council on May 28, 2008. Under this ordinance drivers stopped for a traffic violation who cannot show proof of auto insurance meeting state requirements will be issued a citation and will have his or her vehicle towed at the owner’s expense. The City already tows the vehicles of uninsured motorists involved in traffic accidents. The new ordinance is in response to the large number of people driving in the City of Dallas without the proper state required auto insurance. These uninsured drivers place an unfair burden on t...
