    1. Thanks for yet another kind mention, Erika! And that Washington Post words and phrases list is absolutely hilarious. Laughed until I wept. Stamp out trite phrases, writers!

        Carol, it’s so easy to keep mentioning your posts–they’re wonderful! And yes, isn’t that list great? I passed it around my office, too. We all had some (nervous) chuckles.

    2. Yes, thanks for that link to the Post list. I suggested one myself to then: using “disconnect” as a noun (which almost everyone seems to do these days). We already have a noun for that: disconnection!

      The words and phrases list will be posted to my bulletin board this evening and the photo sites are bookmarked already! I am always on the hunt for free, quality photos and I love the extra info on guidelines for use and photo credit. Enjoy the weekend!
