Welcome to my Blog
I’ll try to post once or twice a week. My topics will be various. I’ll write about writing and editing, about books I’ve enjoyed over the years, about gardening and cooking and music. I’m also a science nerd, so you’ll get some of that. I like to write haikus, so you may get a few of those too. Finally, I’ll suggest links to other blogs and websites that I think might interest you.
The first website I recommend to you is Richard Lederer’s www.verbivore.com. He has a wealth of information on many topics. He’s written more than 50 books on language, humor, and history. To give you just a taste, here’s what he writes as his opening paragraph of the website:
Welcome to the website woven for wordaholics, logolepts, and verbivores. Carnivores eat meat; herbivores eat plants and vegetables; verbivores devour words. If you are heels over head (as well as head over heels) in love with words, tarry here a while to graze or, perhaps, feast on the English language. Ours is the only language in which you drive in a parkway and park in a driveway and your nose can run and your feet can smell…
If you have any questions about the English language, Richard is your man. You can email your questions to him, and he’ll be glad to give you an answer. You’ll find much of pleasure and of interest at his website. I recommend it to you. But be sure to come back here when you’re done. There’ll be much more here in coming weeks.
