Position: Children's picture books, blogger
Pummeling: poor attitude, negative energy, toxic personalities.

Hi Ann, nice to get to now a bit more about you!
I find some of these memes quite inspiring, not the sort of questions I ask myself every day. Though everyone should be able to answer them...
I do still have to get used to that word 'pummeling' though ;-)); never heard of it before!
Have a great day (and weekend) too yourself, Ellen

p.s. I noticed you added me to your blogroll, thanks!! The link behind it is a bit off unfortunately though..

LOL! I didn't know the word "pummeling" either. I had to look it up and it is my native tongue!

Your welcome for adding you to my blogroll I'm honored! Thank you for adding me to yours.I will fix the link and I'm glad you told me. Let me know if it still doesn't work. I'm going to do it now1 :))

Diamondssaphire, Your welcome! I wanted to tell you while I have you here that I'm posting my book review of Anne Fords book On Their Own Monday. I had the dates wrong on my reminder. I don't know if you remember but I told you I'd remind you! Thank for stopping by and I can't wait to read your meme!

Hi Ann, Thanks, Ann! Thanks for your comment just a moment ago on my P's.
I like your P's too (I never thought I would ever say this to someone)...
And I love that, after 'slugger', I have again learned a new and to me very funny-looking word: Pummeling.
I wonder if it originates from Dutch, where a 'pummel' is similar to 'an obnoxious guy'..
My american etymology dictionary says 'pummel' is an alteration of pommel (q.v.) in the verbal sense of "to beat repeatedly."
I think I like 'pommel' even more :)
Take Care! And keep up those good P's!

Jos, I bet the word 'Pummeling' does originate from dutch. That would be the context in which I understood it.
It seems like it would be a good word to use when describing an obnoxious guy, doesn't it? I think I like 'pummel' better, although they are both useful. You love language as I do, noticing every word and its usage. I fear that quality might drive some writers crazy! LOL! Although, I 'm afraid we cannot escape it.

Thanks for reading Jos. I enjoy your comments.

Jos said...

Haha, Ann, I am afraid that quality you mention might also drive some readers crazy
lol!!

Anyway, now you have made it public to the world what drives me so darn crazy... Thx ;)

Re: pommel/pummel: I now know that it came to the Dutch language coming from Germany. 'nough said ;)

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"
