IT'S NATIONAL PUNCTUATION DAY!

http://www.nationalpunctuationday.com/

 and

also F. Scott Fitzgerald's birthday!

What did he write?

Answer:  The Great __________!

FOR FUN!!!  Subject: How to Write "Good"

1. Avoid alliteration.  Always.

2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.

3. Avoid clichés like the plague. (They're old hat.)

4. Employ the vernacular.

5. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.

6. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.

7. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.

8. Contractions aren't necessary.

9. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.

10. One should never generalize.

11. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said,

"I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."

12. Comparisons are as bad as clichés.

13. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.

14. Be more or less specific.

15. Understatement is always best.

16. One-word sentences? Eliminate.

17. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.

18. The passive voice is to be avoided.

19. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.

20. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.

21. Who needs rhetorical questions?

22. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.

Today's Quote of the Day:

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.  ~Hector Berlioz

Today's allusion:

Gordian Knot

gordian (GOR-dee-uhn) adj Highly intricate; extremely difficult to solve.

[In Greek mythology, King Gordius of
Phrygia tied a knot that defied all who tried to untie it. An oracle prophesied that one who would undo this Gordian knot would rule Asia. Alexander the Great simply cut the knot with one stroke of his sword. Hence the saying, "to cut the Gordian knot" meaning
to solve a difficult problem by a simple, bold, and effective action.]

Today's word in Visual Thesaurus: http://visualthesaurus.com/?w1=gordian

See what the Mathematical Association of America has to say about untying the Gordian knot: http://maa.org/devlin/devlin_9_01.html

"Fortunately, the FBI has a team of good-looking, well-dressed,
   super-smart agents to untangle this Gordian plot."
   David Chater; TV Choice; The Times (London, UK); Apr 24, 2004.

  1.  

How much do people really care about spelling? Look at this scenario!

Here are Carina and her cousin Sweden in the middle of Sweden at  Falukoppargruva (the world famous Falun Copper Mine) where in 1968  the Swedish King made a huge "faux pas" (mistake)!

Falukoppargruva is a copper mine where there's a tradition that Swedish Kings and Queens "write" their names in gold deep down in the mine.  Look below:

If you look behind Carina, in 1973, King-Carl Gustaf XVI spelled his own name wrong;  he wrote "Gustf" without the "a"!

You can see in the two pictures below that in 1988, he went back and re-did it after getting so much flack from the Swedish public.  Look above Carina's head.  You can also see that Queen Silvia Victoria also wrote her name in 1993.
