this and that

If I remember accurately, this blog is named “a little bit of this and a little bit of that.” I s’pose I could go look. Well, whatever, here’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that!

My friend Bethany tagged me on Facebook with a link to this:

A Plan for the Improvement of English Spelling
by Mark Twain

For example, in Year 1 that useless letter “c” would be dropped to be replased either by “k” or “s”, and likewise “x” would no longer be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which “c” would be retained would be the “ch” formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2 might reform “w” spelling, so that “which” and “one” would take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish “y” replasing it with “i” and Iear 4 might fiks the “g/j” anomali wonse and for all.

Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear with Iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants. Bai Iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi ridandant letez “c”, “y” and “x” — bai now jast a memori in the maindz ov ould doderez — tu riplais “ch”, “sh”, and “th” rispektivli.

Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud hev a lojikl, kohirnt speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld.

I enjoyed this news story.

My friend Kathy, from Michigan, and I just played our 100th game of Scrabble on Facebook.

At two different garage sales on the same Saturday, I bought a ThighMaster and a ButtMaster. One opposes in, the other opposes out. While I’m past thinking I need creative curvature, at least the latter seems to help my sciatica issues. Worth every bit of the $1 I paid for it!

Here’s the sunset in Newberg last night. I found this picture on Facebook, taken by “Mike from George Fox.”


He also took this pic of the soccer team’s first game on their brand new field. Amazing.

We enjoyed listening to son John tonight sing/play some tunes at Coffee Cottage. He and Erin also have their photos displayed. You see Oscar behind John in this picture.


And they displayed the Anderson family on a different wall. Of course they put up many wonderful photos, but somehow I feel especially drawn to these two in particular.

This is my boss Elizabeth. She’s so cool.

An interesting parking garage. Do you think we’ll see these in the U.S. any time soon?

That’s all folks. I’m going to bed now.

    A little bit of John Macy…he didn’t need to be singing for it to be music to my ears. So nice to see a little family in motion. Let’s skype soon, ok?
