I would love to eat at this California Restaurant featured in the very entertaining movie Sideways with Thomas Hayden Church, Paul Giamatti, Virginia Madsen and Sandra Oh. I love that movie, it is so not ordinary. It is beyond funny and I learned about wine too.

I really liked this phograph taken by a lady in Melbourne, Australia. The last time I was there was in 1995. I applied for a new passport to go to France. I would like to take some baking classes over in Paris and maybe even go to Germany my homeland.

His generosity toward a group of young graffiti writers
was, perhaps, one way to assuage his guilt.
--Phoebe Hoban, [1]Basquiat: A Quick Killing in Art

Even with the requirement of lay review boards, the code
will fail to assuage concerns of the church's most vocal
critics that the unseemly methods of the past won't repeat
--"Bishops take step in right direction," [2]Chicago
Sun-Times, November 15, 2002

If only she would come outside
and let us meet her--face to face;
perhaps our words could turn
her anger's tide, perhaps
we could, if not erase,
at least assuage her rage.
--Euripides, Medea, edited by David R. Slavitt and Palmer

In one final attempt to assuage fears, the agency claims
that these audits will comprise only "1.1 percent of the
total audit-related contacts planned for the year."
--Daniel J. Pilla, "IRS prepares to intensify its kinder,
gentler audits," [3]Insight on the News, April 29, 2002

Assuage comes from Latin ad + suavis, "sweet".

Word of the Day for Tuesday July 19, 2005

flummox \FLUM-uhks\, transitive verb:
To confuse; to perplex.

And when a poll's results happen to upset the conventional
wisdom, or confound the experts, or flummox the pundits,
then that's a poll to remember.
--Michael Kagay, "Unexpected Results Make for Memorable
Polls," [1]New York Times, March 23, 2000

The chronological order of the Stuart, Hanover, Lancaster
and Tudor British royal houses had me flummoxed.
--Sara Ivry, "Game Show Wannabe: I Coulda Been a
Millionaire," [2]New York Times, February 27, 2000

Flummoxed by the surreality of history and the
mind-boggling changes unleashed by the 60's, many writers
in that era became minimalists, withdrawing, turtlelike,
inside their own homes and heads.
--Michiko Kakutani, "New Wave of Writers Reinvents
Literature," [3]New York Times, April 22, 2000

Word of the Day for Monday July 18, 2005

propinquity \pruh-PING-kwih-tee\, noun:
1. Nearness in place; proximity.
2. Nearness in time.
3. Nearness of relation; kinship.

Following the race he took umbrage at Stewart's rough
driving so early in the day, and the propinquity of the two
drivers' haulers allowed the Kid to express his displeasure
up close and personal.
--Mark Bechtel, "Getting Hot," [1]Sports Illustrated,
December 6, 2000

Technologically it is the top service among the women's
fighting forces, and it also has the appeal of propinquity
to gallant young airmen.
--"After Boadicea -- Women at War," [2]Time Europe, October
9, 1939

I was stunned by the propinquity of the events: I had never
been in the same room with anyone who was later murdered.
--Karla Jay, [3]Tales of the Lavender Menace

Schultz came by her position through propinquity: her
husband, older by 12 years, used to play music with De
Maiziere and afterward chat about politics.
--Johanna McGeary, "Challenge In the East," [4]Time,
November 8, 1990

Propinquity derives from Latin propinquitas, from propinquus,
"near, neighboring," from prope, "near."
