Penguin Books wants a Penguin Wayfarer ~ someone to walk Britain during the Summer, chronicling the journey, talking about paths old and new, exploring the stories and myths that surround them.

The Wayfarer will share in writing, in film, and in tweets.

Kate Shrewsday would be a perfect Wayfarer ~ her writing makes even dry brittle grass come to life.

To vote:  CLICK HERE, scroll to the 4th row, and click the VOTE button above Kate’s name ~“A Walk Around Caesar’s Camp, Bracknell” by Kate Pitt.

That’s it!  No log-in required!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Tiara-CatNo dictionary has ever adequately explained the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED.

At a recent linguistic conference held in London, England, attended by the best linguists in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, cleared up the confusion when he received this challenge:

Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED.

Please explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand.

His astute answer:

When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE.  When you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED.

And if the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!

He received a standing ovation and an invitation to dine with the Queen.

Aah . . . that’s better!
