Did you know


Did you know…

… that today is Thesaurus Day? On the birthday (1779) of Peter Roget, author of the major thesaurus, we celebrate all thesauruses. So, go out and celebrate, beat the drum, carouse, commend, dedicate, extol, fete, have a ball, honor, jubilate, kick up your heels, laud, let loose, lionize, live it up, make merry, paint the town red, proclaim, publicize, revel, revere… well, you get my point! 😉
