    Good morning everyone! That trio is perfect for the youngest two s-grandsons and is boxed and heading to them. How did OFA know?
    Enjoy this middle of the week day.

    Greetings!

    Since books and grammar are sometimes discussed on this blog, I thought youse might find this Most Annoying Word List for 2017 interesting…

    http://maristpoll.marist.edu/1218-whatever-loses-ground-but-retains-annoying-word-title/

    “Whatever” and “Literally” are very popular here in New York.

    A good day to all!

    I really hate when people use the word literally, particularly since 9 out of 10 times it is not used correctly. Even more annoying, I have a friend who uses “literally” quite frequently, and then mispronounces it as “literately.”

    Wose, very interesting. One thing not mentioned was saying “like” as in…and he’s like no, no, no and she’s like I saw her. What’s wrong with words like “said”, “replied “, “asked”, “querried”, or “stated”.

    Thanks for the link, Wose. Very Interesting.
    “Whatever” is flippant in our opinion.

    Hounds: We Agree and wonder why this Most Annoying Word was not on the list. The word Like used in place of Said is akin to hearing fingernails scratching on a blackboard. And, worst of all, this has gone on for years. YEEP!

    I don’t talk enough to people to know least favorite words to hear. I can tell you that Sadie’s very favorite word is “walk.” She is always ready to leap to her feet when she hears it.
    Is anyone else getting a ton of email spam this time of year that the usual filters aren’t catching? Where are TMGs when you need them? They must not eat virtual mail.
    I saw the Three Billboards movie today and enjoyed it. It was filmed around Ashville North Carolina where I visited in October. Woody Harrelson liked the area so much that it bought a house there. Sandra Bullock filmed 28 Days in the area years ago and still returns for vacations.

    TMG’s!….It is a well known fact these guys produce and send out all that junk mail…grump!…They have a whole factory which runs on recycled trash – the parts they don’t eat…burp!…Virtual Mail, well that is down to their nerdy member, Ned. He is the only one who knows how to spam yer email and he is darn good attit….grump!
