Wednesday Word of the Day

Piacular \pahy-AK-yuh-ler\, adjective:
1. Expiatory; atoning; reparatory.
2. Requiring expiation; sinful or wicked.

~Sinful or wicked...yep that's me, piacular!  muahahahah~
Piacular is derived from two Latin roots: pia, which is related to the word pious, and a variation of the suffix -cule which denotes a diminutive nouns, like particle.  -

Song of the Day:  Sundown by Gordon Lightfoot.  Again, I awoke with this tune in my head.  How different from yesterday's fare...

Quote of the DayWe are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read.

- Jules Verne

Yummy Food Find: Ham wrapped pickles.  Ham slices topped with cream cheese of choice (I like a good plain) and rolled around a full size pickle.  Slice it in rounds and serve as an appetizer.


  1. Ham and cream cheese, that sounds good. I've never been much of pickle fan except for in dishes like potato salad, then yum.

    Piacular ~ that reminds me of peculiar. Wonder if there is a root relationship there?

  2. Mmm, I love pickles, but they are so high in sodium so I have to limit. Funny thing though, when I was preggers with Darling Diva, they were like the last thing I wanted to eat...LOL I do everything backwards I guess.

    I would bet there is a root relationship, but Piacular or peculiar, I'm still covered...te he ;)
