Me and my daughter

"Great comparison Luci. She really is a "chip off the old block". Please, enjoy that kid's formative years while you can. My own daughter is now 14 (going on 30). Yes, our babies grow up so quickly. Before you know it,…"

WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?

Posted on October 16, 2014 at 6:07 8 Comments

Some of you may question the title of this latest entry. Incase you're wondering, "What makes you tick?" is an English expression (idiom) that loosely translates to mean, "What's your reason for living? What gives you motivation to wake up in the morning? What's your true passion in life and why?".

If the question were literally translated, I'd be writing about pre digital age mechanical clocks that make a "tick tock" sound.…

Challenge Versus Fear In It's English Enterpritation. (American Style)

Posted on March 6, 2014 at 8:30 6 Comments

In the often "politically correct" language of American English, we sometimes exchange the word "fear" for the word "challenge"...

To many Americans, "challenge" just sounds better when motivating a good friend while encouraging them to face his or her "fears".

For a brief example, I'll give you two sentences. One is written in the negative context. The other contains the positive. Both…
