Hello, readers. Feel free to post questions about English here and to answer them. Let’s see if we cannot get a dialogue going.
I know that English can be a “CRAZY” language, but it’s a powerful one as well. Let’s help each other. Just for fun and to help each other.
The Cloud Appreciation Society on Facebook is full of gorgeous pictures of… CLOUDS. Yes, dramatic colorful cloud pictures. The actual society’s web page is here: Cloud Appreciation Society .
A few years ago, I told my sophomore English class that I was a member of the International Cloud Appreciation Society, and most students were mildly amused, but some students were on the floor laughing.
But one sweet girl bought me a cloud coffee mug when she found out I was retiring. Precious to me!

For those of you who like summer, enjoy! Me? I get sick in heat and humidity and the skeeters LOVE ME… no matter what I do, I spend the summer bitten by mosquitoes.
But I very much enjoy the sunshine and interesting shadows. Oh, and the summer clouds. So interesting…and seeing bats drop out of trees and fly away, and seeing lightning bugs flash, flash, flash…and hearing birds.
I guess I love much about summer after all.
What’s your favorite season and why? Or what’s your favorite part of each season?
Winter: crisp stark beauties of snow, crisp clean air. (But oh! The darkness really affects my mood.)
Spring: the returning light. The birds, the trees, the flowers. The return of those great spring sounds.
Summer: sunshine and color.
Autumn: the colors of fall–those lovely gold and red leaves in sunshine.
