This wealthy and prominent man had thought long and hard on what to get the family for a Christmas gift. After thinking about it he summoned a photographer and wanted a large picture of himself taken for a family gift. After a few days he went to the photograph studio to see the proofs. After looking at them he didn’t like what he saw. He again summoned the photographer and said “These pictures do not do me justice”. To that the photographer stated: “Mr. you don’t need justice you need mercy”. How many agents and clients need mercy and (9 comments)
Not to say on some mornings I might wear one but I think not. Here is another word from the National Spelling Bee. With me being follicle deprived (I know no-one has noticed but I am) on cold days I need to keep the ole noggin covered so the meaning of (pel’ ar en) a womans cape, often of fur, tapering to long points in the front. More to follow I have six more words to post from the event. (5 comments)
bella vista arkansas real estate: Want to join me in trying “haori”? - 06/17/11 07:27 AM
Isn't it interesting in what some words mean and then you can associate it with the item. Anyway we are on a down slope from the National Spelling Bee list of words. I remember having one a little longer and then I started gaining weight and have not been able to get another but I plan to soon enough. The meaning of haroi is: is a hip- or thigh-length kimono-like jacket, which adds formality to an outfit. Haori were originally worn only by men, until it became a fashion for women in the Meiji period. They are now worn by both (4 comments)
A lady goes to a scheduled exam and she talks for a solid hour. The psychiatrist asks her to come back the next week and she did and for another hour she doesn’t stop talking. On the next visit before she gets started the psychiatrist asks her to close her eyes and imagine going to the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls. Take into account all their wonder and realize there are more important things out in the world bigger than you are. Don’t you wish some of your clients thought the same way as the psychiatrist did? Wouldn’t it (5 comments)
A doctor examining a woman who had been rushed to the Emergency Room, took the husband aside & said, 'I don't like the looks of your wife at all.' 'Me neither doc,' said the husband. 'But she's a great cook & really good with the kids.' ------------------------------------------------------- The graveside service just barely finished, when there was a massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance. The little old man looked at the preacher & calmly said, 'Well . . . she's there.'
So here is another one of those words in the National Spelling Bee that I promised. Apparently this is what happened: It is best known as being close to the site of the Battle of Solferino on 24 June 1859, part of the Second Italian War of Independence. The battle ended with Italo-French capture of the Rocca, the fortress then in Austrian hands. The wounded in the battle were witnessed by the Swiss Jean-Henri Dunant. Horrified by the suffering of wounded soldiers left on the battlefield, Dunant set about a process that led to the Geneva Conventions and the establishment (6 comments)
When you have an 'I Hate My Job day' [Even if you're retired, you sometimes have those days] Try this out: Stop at your pharmacy and go to the thermometer section and purchase a rectal thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson. Be very sure you get this brand. When you get home, lock your doors, draw the curtains and disconnect the phone so you will not be disturbed. Change into very comfortable clothing and sit in your favorite chair. Open the package and remove the thermometer. Now, carefully place it on a table or a surface so that it will not become chipped or broken. Now the fun part begins. Take out the literature from the box and (15 comments)
A real woman is a man's best friend. She will never stand him up and never let him down. She will reassure him when he feels insecure and comfort him after a bad day. She will inspire him to do things he never thought he could do; to live without fear and forget regret. She will enable him to express his deepest emotions, and give in to his most intimate desires. She will make sure he always feels as though he's the (14 comments)
OK now we are going to the National Spelling Bee as I have mentioned before. This will be a 12 wordsmith series on the words these 11-14 year old kiddos were spelling. So I’ve seen these daily and I bet you have also. The meaning of (we pel’) is: a loose, often colorfully embroidered garment worn as by Indian women of Mexico and Guatemala (9 comments)
Well I can tell you this happens more than I want to admit. However there is a way to have this not happen and that is through education. While I still enjoy these from time to time my job is to inform the clients in such a manner as these do not come up. Now for the meaning of (poz’er) : a baffling question or problem. Keep them from happening by being very informative, but wait isn’t that your job??? (11 comments)
Grandpa, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench. He didn't move, just sat with his head down staring at his hands. When I sat down beside him he didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat, I wondered if he was OK. Finally, not really wanting to disturb him but wanting to check on him at the same time, I asked him if he was OK. He raised his head and looked at me and smiled. "Yes, I'm fine. Thank you for asking," he said in a clear strong voice. "I didn't mean to disturb you, Grandpa, but (8 comments)
I watched some of the latter part of the National Spelling Bee the other day and those were some of the words 11-14 year old kids were spelling and getting right. When I was growing up what happened to see Jack run or Sally walked to her home after school? I’ll just give you a few and who knows you may see some of them later on Wordsmith: Keitloa, haori and zanja. My head hurt just hearing the word much less trying to spell it (12 comments)
Well I showed this word to the wife and she got it but I wonder how many of you will. I thought I knew what it meant but I was wrong so I’ll ask you do you really know all the meanings of the word selected today? So again before I tell you one of the meanings do you know agents or clients who vacillate? The meaning of (lat’) is (one of them) is to waver in mind: show indecision. How many agents are going to leave this profession this year and how many clients are going to change their (10 comments)
