Weekend Haiku:

"Snowdrops that tingle
Delicious cranberry wine
Sweet hot plum puddings."

V. Mahfood

--------------------------------------

--Word of the Day: nonplus \non-PLUHS\, transitive verb:
To cause to be at a loss as to what to think, say, or do; to confound; to perplex; to bewilder.
Example:
Mr Esswis had promptly negotiated an arrangement between himself, the owner of the sprayer and the owner of the sheep, nonplussing the other two farmers by accepting full blame of the straying animal, as long as unpleasantness and paperwork could be avoided.
-Michel Faber, Under the Skin: A Novel

--Quote of the Day: Because gratification of a desire leads to the temporary stilling of the mind and the experience of the peaceful, joyful Self, it's no wonder that we get hooked on thinking that happiness comes from the satisfaction of desires. This is the meaning of the old adage, "Joy is not in things, it is in us."
-Joan Borysenko

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
--TRIVIA FUN:What regional accent did Americans deem sexiest, most liked and most recognizable?
ANSWER TO YESTERDAY'S TRIVIA:
