Words, words...

Words of the Day

know-how [n. NO-how]

Know-how is the expertise required to do something correctly.

Example: "Sara has the know-how to turn that kid's attitude around."

This noun was coined in the United States in the 1830s. It is believed to have first appeared in the New Yorker in 1938.

Near synonyms include expertise, savvy, ability, skill, talent, knowledge, and knack.

graham [n. GRA-um or GRAM CRACK-er]

The use of graham flour, an unbolted wheat flour, to make a cracker resulted in what we today call the graham cracker. This semisweet cracker can be eaten on its own, but it is also a staple in pie crusts and Smores.

The graham cracker is named after Sylvester Graham, an American nutritionist who first developed this treat in 1829.

Graham advocated a plain diet made up of rough cereals, fruit, vegetables, and homemade breads. Grahamism flourished in the 1830s and his followers often lived in communes. Not everyone was impressed by Graham's views though, and he was once attacked by a mob of angry bakers and butchers.

And now...after that fascinating grammar lesson (I'm sure you're all about ready to kill me by now), we present....NEWS Snippets with my comments.

BRITISH PERSONALITY ADVOCATES 'YOUTHFUL' BREAST AUGMENTATION

England's sexy Nicola Sale says the best thing she ever did to improve her career was to have breast augmentation while she was still in high school. She made the comments to the British press when coming to the defense of a 16-year-old high school girl, Jenna Franklin, who wanted the surgery as a birthday present.

Sale says at the time she wanted to be more full-figured, her parents were pleased about her decision to have surgery and stood behind her all the way, even though friends of the family thought she was too young.

(Oh please...save me from the twitty supermodels who think it's a GOOD idea to give into the notion that the more anorexic and Barbie-like you look, the more attractive you will be. I have more to rant about this...but I'm going to save it for later, since my computer's having a coniption fit and I don't want it to explode.)
