Hear ye Hear ye


( Trivia Monday ) The word " news" came from the first letters of the words North, East, West and South. This was because information was being gathered from all different directions.

Learned something today....very interesting how words come about.

We just got back from the vets. We took our ten year old Sophie (dog). She is on two kinds of medication. She needs to lose a few pounds just like her owner otherwise she is doing well.

Happy Monday...I am going over to the village library to do my little bit of volunteering this afternoon. Sure hope we don't get the predicted ice storm.

What a fascinating bit of information. I love to learn things like this. No college degree needed and yet it enriches the day somehow. =)
