WELCOME to Friday November 8, 2019
Here’s the story…..
Since we’re now living in the time of e-mail (and blogs and texts and Tweets) and
the more common use of the written language, it is time for an English lesson.
So, with tongue firmly in cheek, here are some rules to keep in mind when
using the Queen’s Engerlish:
1. Verbs has to agree with their subjects.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction.
4. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
5. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They’re old hat).
6. Always avoid annoying alliteration.
7. Be more or less specific.
8. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.
9. Also, too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies.
10. No sentence fragments. No comma splices, run-ons are bad too.
11. Contractions aren’t helpful and shouldn’t be used.
12. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
13. Do not be redundant; do not use more words than necessary; it’s highly superfluous.
14. One should never generalize.
15. Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great weekend people and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!
Quotes of the Day
“One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown
is the belief that one’s work is terribly important.” –Bertrand Russell

success. The will power to force yourself to do what you know you
should do when you should do it, whether you like it or not, whether
you feel like it or not. Success is tons of discipline.” -Brian Tracy
“Although a lot of people are on these low-carb diets, doctors say be

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
Everything about county customs delighted my neighbors, who had moved
to our small town from the city. One day they spotted a sign, “Fresh Eggs For Sale”
at a roadside stand where payment was on the honor system. “Why can’t
everyone be this trusting?” they said as they put their money into the box
and took a carton. When they got home and opened it, they found 11 eggs. 😳😁 😎
Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”
Answer: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!
The quote, probably the most famous quote of the entire movie, is made by Matthew Broderick (Ferris), who is also the narrator. Ferris must figure out ways he can keep from getting caught skipping school. He justifies this idea by making the above quote to the audience. This makes us sympathize with Ferris. He has a few tricks up his sleeves though, and he is aided by his friend Cameron,(Ruck) and his girlfriend, Sloane,(Sara). The trio gets into a lot of sticky situations, including stealing Cameron’s father’s car, almost being spotted by Ferris’ father, and getting kicked out of a restaurant. Although Ferris and his sister Jeanie (Grey) seem to hate one another, she helps Ferris in the end.
