You lost your ring? Yikes, at lest bands are less than diamonds. I have lost my ring a couple of times and literally miraculously got it back each time, including a time Emily took it to a park in her pocket, lost it there, and than several weeks later a woman found it, saw the sign I posted and returned it to me!

Yay! Yay! Yay!!!

That has been my favorite Spanish word for a long time--but no one else seems to like it.

I'm so happy you do, too.

I once knew a 14 year old girl whose favorite word was "defenestrate" --the English version of that Latin based verb. She just loved saying it. It is a pretty cool word. And it isn't so much that tv is bad, it's that watching it in lieu of playing or reading or sleeping is bad.

Defenestrate is one of my favorite English words.

I served my mission in the Czech Republic. Czech history has seen a number of famous defenestrations.
