Word of the Day

On my Google home page, it gives me a word of the day. Today it's

monomania: obsession with a single subject

Made me immediatly start thinking of what I am monomanic about.

Sometimes I gotta admit it's chocolate. Not Hershey's, but rich, European chocolate.

I don't know that I have ever been totally monomanic to the exclusion of anything else in my life ... though if I think about it for a while, who knows what I might remember ... but there certainly have been mini-monomanic phases.

When I was 13 I had to have a Panasonic tape player - a cute little bubble-shaped one.
When I was 14 I had to have horse-back riding lessons.
When I was 16 there was this certain young man at school ... never knew I was alive, I'm sure, but boy-oh-boy was I monomanic about him! My best friend and I used to yell greetings to him from the anonymity of the chairlift at the local ski hill (and then giggle so much we could hardly ski)

Lately? Well a few years ago I was definitely monomanic about saving a wonderful kindergarten program at our local school ... found myself getting up in the middle of the night with ideas and plans ... lost that battle, though.
Getting a dog? check
Homeschooling the boys? check

I wish I could be monomanic about getting in better physical shape!

What are you monomanic about?

Oh no. I am that way too. I did the getting the dog thing (with all of the research on different breeds) and homeschooling too. It was yoga for awhile. I started learning violin last spring and would probably still be doing that if I could schedule it in this year. Maybe after Christmas. What is my "thing" right now? I'm not sure. Probably being grumpy about my linguistics class.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.
