Brain Teaser:

This is only for all you smart friends. See if you can figure out what these words have in common:

banana
dresser
grammar
potato
revive
uneven
assess

You know yet? Try again. You'll kick yourself when you discover the answer! (But maybe not, I hate brain teasers! I suppose cause I'm not smart enough to figure them out! Laugh. But then, I always come up with an answer; just not the right one!)

What I want to know: who sits around and thinks of these things? Don't they have better things to do then waste their time on things that befuddle, confuse, annoy, and twist our minds?

Now if they'd spend their time writing something entertaining (like a novel! Grin. Or even a poem or a short story, or even--something nonfictional), that would be worthwhile.

And people get big money for these things. Think of all those people who write cartoons. What about those who write jokes for entertainers. I wish they'd spread some of that filthy lucre to good souls like . . . uh hmmm . . . me!

Wonder what it takes (besides talent) to start a career in nonsense? Maybe I'll sign up.



Spring Hint: With spring almost here, many people are gearing up to paint a room, more than one, or even some outside work. Here's some things to think about before you begin.

Color can be a tricky beast.

Like a chameleon it can change depending on several factors and can even make the space or room look completely different in size and tone. Color can:

· Change depending on adjacent color

· Reflect onto adjacent color

· White or beige will take on the tint of an adjacent color

· Differing adjacent colors will appear more intense

· Cool colors and tints will make a space appear larger

· Warm colors and shades will make a space appear smaller

· Cool colors and tints make an object appear smaller and lighter in weight

· Warm colors and shades will make a space appear smaller

· Cool colors and tints make an object appear smaller and lighter in weight

· Warm colors and shades make an object appear larger and heavier in weight

· Contrasting colors contract space

· Similar colors or values expand space

· White, grey or colorless spaces are poor choices where people are to gather and interact




Answer: In all the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word. Duh!
