Oldiesmann: I must not have set the permissions correctly for that board when I set the site up again a few years ago (long story - there was a server crash years ago and no backup, so we had to start over from scratch). I'll fix it soon.

Astro:   feel free to start a topic here. Any duplicated topics may be merged together so we don't have two topics of similar nature.  Has that been eliminated?

Thanks, Rick, I saved the site for future checking.  I can buy MS Word 2016 and may do that.  I think it is the same as Office 365 which may be "rented" for a monthly fee.  If I have to pay, I want to own it.  I'm lucky I am still able to use Office 2007, however, it does take longer to come up than it used to.

I came across an interesting saying.
"What is bred in the bone will not come out of the flesh", implying something deep-rooted cannot be removed.
Also recorded in the form "What is bred in the bone will come out in the flesh", meaning deeply ingrained traits will ultimately reveal themselves.
Earliest documented use: 1470.

I just used one today that my grandmother used t use and I'd almost forgotten it.  If we said something was "funny" she would ask....

Was it funny "haha" or funny peculiar.  (there is a difference)

Jane - remember back a couple of months ago, we were talking about, "I'm beside myself", with frustration, worry, anger, etc?  Today I was upset about something, and I said, "I'm fit to be tied!"  I had forgotten all about that one, which was another one of my mother's favorites!  Similar to, or the same as, "beside myself".  ha ha!  I think when our generation is gone, that all those old sayings will go with us.  I can't imagine my grown children or grandchildren using any of them?  :-\

I thought of a couple of new ones today -------------------- but when I checked to see if we already had them, there they were  :'(

As we are now taking more precautions as to going around cleaning and safeguarding our homes due to our current world situation of C -Virus epidemic, although be careful not to over-clean, we need good bacteria too..one of my parents well known idioms was...


..." cleanliness is next to Godliness.."

" freedom is the outside of the inside "
              ~ Joyce Carey

Have we all given up on these...is our book now full, has it been published...

" If the mountain wont come to Mohammed, Mohammed must go to the mountain "

Another Idiom my family used when i was growing up, can anyone else remember their parents-family saying this...

Basically meaning, finding another - alternative solution..

Well, - - - It didn't sell very well. I bought two copies and since then it has gone out of print  :roflBig:
I had trouble finding my file as my old computer died and I'm now using a HP Win-10 puter.
