Wiggle is a funny word which is fitting for it's meaning.

Wiggle is one of those words that does not have multiple meanings or uses. It simply means to move or cause to move with jerky movements, esp from side to side.

Is there a time when you've wiggled about a lot?

Blue is a wonderful color with many feelings and emotions to it.
I often think of the jazz musician Miles Davis when I hear the word blue. Several of his albums had "blue" in the title... "Blue Period" (1951), "Blue Haze' (1954), "Blue Moods" (1955) and "Kind Of Blue" (1959).

There are many fantastic shades of blue...

My favorite shade of blue is royal blue...

Linda Ronstadt  - Blue Bayou

Bobby Vinton - Blue Velvet

Moody Blues - Blue World

What is your favorite shade of blue?

Most people want to be strong. Strong means something different to each person. Below I am presenting a pictorial of what being strong means to different people.

For some people being strong means physical strength with lots of muscles

For others it's increased intelligence and strength in mental abilities such as meditating, remembering or concentrating. These people are mentally and intellectually strong.

There are the emotionally strong who can withstand almost any sort of hardship. They're able to center their minds on the positive.

Bravery is a characteristic of a strong minded person. This person fears nothing.

Saying no to peer pressure or a bad habit is a sign of a strong will.

For a lot of people love is strength

Bryan Ferry (with David Gilmour) Is Your Love Strong Enough

Sly and the Family Stone - Brave and Strong

What sort of strong are you?

I forgot to buy bananas last night when I did my grocery shopping for the week. I usually have a banana every morning with breakfast. It's part of my get up and go. This put my mind on the word banana. I've always loved the word because it's a somewhat exotic yet corny word. You usually don't see exotic and corny in the same sentence but for the word banana I believe exotic and corny are fitting.

Bananas come in a variety of sizes and color when they are ripe, including yellow, purple and red. The banana plant is often mistaken for a tree. Their main or upright trunk is actually a false trunk (or stem) made of the rolled bases of leaves.

Southeast Asian farmers were the first to cultivate bananas. Southeast Asia (Indochina) has more genus's of the banana plant than any other part of the world, suggesting a long history of banana cultivation in the area. Africa has the second largest variety of genus's.

Nowadays the banana is used in a variety of ways. It's a flavor of ice cream and frozen yogurt. Bananas are used in deserts and cakes. But it is still first and foremost a breakfast favorite. Bananas have many health benefits. They help to reduce depression and anemia. They protect our eyes and help us to develop healthy bones. Because they are high in potassium they help to lower blood pressure and relieve stress. I'll have to remember that next time I'm all stressed.

A secondary term for the word bananas is crazy or deranged. I often feel as if I am bananas - as a matter of fact it's a term I hear used in reference to me on a regular basis. I guess I must really be bananas after all.

A third term finds the word bananas being used to describe response such as enthusiasm or excitement. The kind of excitement that happens when a great band walks out on stage to begin their concert - the audience goes bananas.

Yes, We Have No Bananas first became popular in 1923

Slipping on a banana peel has become a staple in comedy since 1910
