Word of Wisdom from Somebody Wiser Than Me


My wife sent me this. She got it from the Smart School House Facebook page. I thought I would share.

If you fail, never give up because FAIL means “First Attempt in Learning.”

End is not the end because END means “Effort Never Dies.”

If you get no as an answer, remember that NO means “Next Opportunity.”

Positive thinking!

Until next time! Use the right words!

How to “Serenade” Someone


Recently, my wife lamented how I no longer sing to her (I used to do karaoke; now, I’m too old with too limiting a vocal range). I told her that I remember serenading her, and she asked if you serenade by song or by music.

I have previously written about the difference between a song and an instrumental (click here). But I didn’t know about serenading, other than no matter how it’s done, I recommend it as a romantic gesture.

So, I looked up serenade in the dictionary. It means “a complementary vocal or instrumental performance, especially one given outdoors at night for a woman.”

So, serenade away in a style of your choosing!

Until next time! Use the right words!
