Miscellaneous: Fun and Useful Website

A Website dedicated to promoting a resurgence of rare and little-used words. A friend sent me a link to this interesting Website and it seemed worth passing on to others. The site allows you to "adopt" rare words. By adopting a word you pledge to use it--to help it survive in the English language. As you pass your cursor over the many words on screen, they plead to be chosen, in needy little voices (yes, the words talk). One of my favorite rare words: "bloviate"--something politicians tend to do. Go to Save the Words to check it out.

Found Art: Manhole Cover and Asphalt, Victoria, B.C. (July 27, 2011)

Walking along a street in Victoria, BC, on my recent trip north to Canada, I saw this radially incised manhole cover surrounded by asphalt patching. Found art.
