Another new series that I am trying out is my Word and research of the week. I will post a word for you to try and use in casual conversation. If you are successful, then leave a comment stating how you used the word. I will also give you an item, word, topic, etc. for you to provide a little research. Find a fact or two about the topic and post it as well. Let's give it a try.
