I was recently alerted to the existence of this blog which has the name of a website: SpellingCity – that I founded and operate. Of course, the site’s name is now VocabularySpellingCity and as I look at this blog, I recognize my writing and pictures.

This isn’t a case of copyright infringement, this is a case of my having a bad memory, I had totally forgotten starting this blog. I guess it’s meant to give commentary and for reflexion away from the more commercial busy corporate site that I now run.

This is what’s on my mind this week: doing more with expressions that are commonly used that confuse youngsters and ESL students. Examples:

Raised eyebrows

Opportunity knocking

A chance up at bat

Not a pretty picture

I’d rather die
