Just posted something in another forum and used the term "nooks and crannies". After I did, it dawned on me that it is a term seldom used by anyone who did not watch the first landing on the moon. Meaning ... it is an old-timer's term. So now, has there EVER been a solid definition for a crannie being different from a nook? Have I, all these years, been redundant?

Man, it hurts to think this deeply. Need to take a mid-morning nap.

Are going to ponder on this or mull it over?

Well, the way our language is altered and butchered these days, "Nooks" are ereaders and "crannies" is short for cranberries. Gives the expression an whole new meaning.

So there back atchya.

Dueling IT security; I was a senior systems analyst for ExxonMobil for 28 years. I also have a couple of throw-down email addys and one that is cloaked. I don't have the group emails routed to my regular email because they tend to take over the in-box. So, I log in to Yahoo to see the group activity.

Now back to packing. Colorado bound on Saturday!!

From somewhere on the web........

"As for who first decided to put them together and when--- I couldn't tell you.

But it makes sense, since they are more or less synonymous, and therefor combining them creates an hyperbolic emphasis on the extent of relevant crevices.

All very well but in my part of the world the expression was "crooks and nannies"

Talking About :angel:Mike

I talked to Linda this morning. Mike's wish was to be cremated and have his asses interred with his parents. She will be having a memorial at his house in Phoenix, but the date has not been set.

And I forgot to ask if Mike had a favorite charity, Dang it! She's more than a bit overwhealmed, but she said Mike was very organized and had put his affairs in order. She just needs time to go thru his stuff.

Please ignore the cheesy grin in the title. I didn't mean for it to be there and I can't edit out. But it didn't put in the like I wanted. That will be in front of Mike's name whenever I post about him. That is how I see him and honor him.

Well since Wayne and Sarah have revealed their secreat past and their alias e-mails I feel it's time to let you in on the Super Secreat e-mail action that I use. First I developed a second e-mail account that never gets any replies. I Just Never Give It Out!

Just checking in!

Thanks for the update, Barb. I hope Linda is holding up OK.

I usually make memorial donations to either St. Jude's Children's Hospital or the ASPCA, or occasionally a new book for the library. I think in Mike's case, I will go with the ASPCA since he was a dog lover.
