"Blog" is not a real pretty-sounding word...

Is it? "BLOG". Definitely a word that evolved in writing, not speaking.

There are some really beautiful colours outside, trees dressed in red, purple, gold, rust and yellow. Great colours for Divali, which is tomorrow. Shubh Divali! We feel homesick at this time of year. The boys revolted last night and said that tomorrow evening we have to go down town and see if anyone is firing Bamboo Cannons for Divali. You never know, they might!

Tomorrow is also Guy Fawkes' night, so there will definitely be fireworks. We'll have a great time, one way or another!

One wonders if there had been, perhaps, a more melodic or mellifluous word chosen to name what we do, if more people might not have chosen to pursue the avocation.

As it is, most people don't have a clue - they see it as a petty pasttime - not worthy of any of THEIR time.

Their loss.

Maybe we should have a contest to come up with a lovelier word since it's a lovely thing we do. I was thinking of the wv but it's splayb. Hmmm, well it does have play in it...

I have always hated the word "blog." That is one of the reasons, when I started mine, that I went with wordpress. I didn't want blogspot or blogger.
