I have been getting into entymology lately because I'm reading this text book Jess got me for Christmas on the Indo-Europeans. At least I think I'm getting into entymology - that's the one about words, right? Not bugs. I'm no more into bugs now than I was a while back.

I'm interested in the verb "to goad." It's a great word. Sounds kind of ancient. Hard consonants on both ends, which is nice to say. I'd like to know where it comes from, but I'm avoiding work to type this, and researching its origins smacks of work.

Ooh, "smacks" is another great word when used in that context.

Earlier, I "goaded" Jess into buying a trio on Ebay. It was fun, even though I only used the word once in the process. I plan to do more goading in the near future. I'm travelling to Europe next week, so I'd like to see how different cultures react to being goaded. My guess is the French will smack me.

Actually, grace is a vital survival ability, but it can be also perishable. At any time so gradually immediately after we strike 30, muscle tissues we use to stand tall weaken. The duration of our stride shortens, the speed of our steps slows, and visioncritical to coordinationbecomes fuzzier. Even menopause may make our gait a tad much more wobbly. "Aging, nevertheless, is not the only real purpose men and women drop their perception of stability," suggests A. Lynn Millar, PhD, a professor of bodily treatment at Andrews University. "Balance is basically 'use it or drop it.' You can retain it in case you stay active."
