Welcome 2006

Instead of making resolutions this year, I'm finding new quotes to live by. Do you have a quote (new or old) that helps you get through the day?

In addition, what words do you think need to be added to spell check &/or placed in the dictionary? Local & national used words. For example:

National

Google

Wi-fi

Blog

Local:

Heartwell

Not a new word but an abbreviation: GR

What about the abbreviation U.P. !! If we keep this up we'll be the talk of the town this time next year!

What about the term "Logie" for when a prominent citizen voices a strong oppisition to a project in a nasty letter. For example, "Oh, wow, that project got Logied!" :D

DT - abbreviation for "Downtown"

MochDonalds - Any building built by the Moch family. More than likely without a visible first floor. building may double as an alligator farm.

Azzarville(s)- pieces of land or buildings in the DT area that are devoid of development because the owner is asking an absurd amount of money for the property and has no intention of doing anything with it.

Vaportecture (from Vapor and Architecture) - Building project that is hyped as being "just around the corner" by the developer. The project supposedly has everything in place, a fancy rendering, and a start date, which comes and goes. Multiple start dates come and go before the project is declared dead or "on hold". The building site is usually put up for sale and turned into a parking lot.

I'm betting GR will be the example city in the dictionary under Vaportecture!

New Years Quote:

"Visionary Thinking Requires Optimism" -Metropolis JAN 2006

(Why bother reaching for the stars if you're convinced we're all headed straight to hell? These days genuine optimism is in short supply......So how do we proceed? We think the solution involves taking large intractable problems and breaking them into smaller solvable pieces....fixing the fixable close to home -Metropolis JAN 2006)
