I thought that we had settled that pre-Norman Latinates are OK. Þenung could be used. I chose dight because the word is short, in the nowadays wordbook, and it is a pre-Norman Latinate. Thus the Saxons must have found the word useful enuff to have chosen to use it. But hey, there is always bendability among users. One is not bound to use one or the other. Your suggestion, asmiþmona, for satellite certainly covers artificial satellites if there is a need to be specific ... and would be a good choice as well but it's kind of long (five syllables). Satellite is three syllables (artificial satellite - seven) whereas fylgend, geneat, and gesith are two syllables and fylgestre and gethofta are three syllables. I'm not sure whether to change to spelling to match the nowadays use of the letters or change the pronunciation to match the old use ... y=ü and in many cases has mutated to the long i as in fire (OE fyr) g=y before e. eo=oo or u or ou (as in you) Thus fulyestre, yeneat, yesith, and yethofta ... and yetheode or yethude could be nowadays spellings based on how they were said. Words that have, in fact, mutated: geol = yule; geong = yeong = young (yung?) ... BTW, knowing this then it become clear that yeoman is the contraction of yeong+man. My tendency is to pronounce the leading g hard as in get. Tho there are instances of pronouncing it as j as in general ... What the heck ... people (Anglo-Saxon spelling of peupel similar to þeod?), could just accept it the way it is and let the pronunciation find its own worth. I wouldn't mind bring back the letter thorn þ or at least having it has a choice again. I'v gotten used to using it!

From Ængelfolc in another thread: Why use the Latin-rooted 'dight', when þēnung. þēning "f service, ministration, office; attendants; service of a meal; book of a service" is direct from Ænglisc? >> þēod/þīod-þēnung/þēning. May I put forth my word for Satellite >> āsmiþodmōna (lit. "a moon made from metal") Also, the Icelandic þýða < ON þýða, þióð < Teutonic *þiud(d)ijanan. "Gætirðu þýtt þetta fyrir mig?" >> "Could you translate (lit. 'nationalize in our tongue') for me?" Whence also German 'deuten, deutbar, deutlich, Deutung', asf. Cf. þēodþrēa "national disaster", þēodġestrēon "national wealth, treasure", *þiudiskaz "of the folks, popular", þēodcyning "national king". Middle English still used þēod(e)/ theod(e), too.

Rail is the most subsidized mode on a passenger-mile basis ... The resulting federal subsidy per thousand passenger miles was as follows: Inter-city passenger rail: $186 Urban transit: $118 Air travel: $ 6 Highways: -$2 We need to be clear about the definition of federal a "subsidy" for each mode of travel. A subsidy is not the same thing as "federal funding" altho many transit, rail, and high-speed rail advocates keep trying to twist the language so that it is. If an infrastructure project is funded by payments made by its users, there is no subsidy involved. A subsidy occurs when non-users are compelled to pay for such a project. What pro-rail folks often do, incorrectly, is lump the local roads with the highways and cry, “See! Roads are subsidized too!” Not only that, but money from the gas tax is siphoned off to subsidize transit. So one of the first reactions will be, “If the roads need a subsidy then let’s start by returning the money given to transit to the road fund.”

Do you think this procedure is applicable in your case? Maybe a trip to Colorado (if the FDA hasn't shut them down) would be worth the trip. I understand neck pain! lol ... Several years ago, I hit the mat wrong in Aikido practice. Altho I didn't really notice it at the time, it eventually caused me a lot of pain and even a trip to the emergency room. For a long time, the doctors were baffled ... turns out that they just weren't looking in the right place! I suddenly took a turn for the worse and this time it was in my neck. I literally could not turn my head and I could only sleep in one position that didn't cause excruciating pain. I finally convinced my doctor to give me an MRI ... it revealed that I had a protruding left disc between C6 and C7. On my way to consult with a neurosurgeon, I stopped in to consult with a chiropractor. He said that I was borderline and should see a neuro first. The neuro said that I was borderline ... It could go away by itself or he could make a small incision and slice off the protrusion ... I told him to hold that thought. I returned to the chiropractor who proceeded to crack my mid and lower back! He didn't touch my neck. He said that I had probably fallen down and knocked it out of alignment without even realizing it. That's when I thought back to hitting the mat incorrectly. Even before I left his office I could my neck farther than before. The next morning I could actually turn my head again. Afterwards, I took up a little yoga and now I stretch (and sometimes pop) my back and neck daily. So I know that neck pains are excruciating. I hope this technique can provide some permanent relief for you. If you try it, I'd like to hear about it. Later!

Thanks Laurie. I've always been given high marks in evaluations for staying calm in stressful situations. Maybe I owe that to Star Trek's Mr. Spock. I used to watch the reruns after school and admired Mr. Spock for always remaining calm and logical. Maybe I just come by it naturally. Over the years, I've had lots of first aid training ... the Boy Scouts, the Army, and as a WFR (Wilderness First Responder). One of the first rules is to calm the patient so that you can assess the injury. Well, I was my own patient and knew that I had to remain calm ... I'm sure your father thought the same thing with his injury. That picture is a day later after I had cleaned up. My camera has been flakey lately or I would have tried to take a picture before cleaning the blood off. I looked in the mirror and looked someone in a war movie or a horror movie! lol I knew that the head injury was serious. As a kid, I had an accident on my bicycle and was knocked out. I still remember waking up on the way to the doctor and my mom not letting me go back to sleep because the doctor had given her instructions. The only semi-stable form of communication I have is the internet. A cell phone doesn't usually work here. As I stated, I knew the next 24-48 hours would be critical. Fortunately it has turned out ok so far. I still have headaches if I over exert myself or if it is too hot ... and tire easily. Sometimes it's difficult to be patient when healing! But that sharp pain in my temple will make stop! lol The cut is healing and scar is forming to remind me of it. Good thing that I'm a guy and a scar sometimes enhances that rugged handsomeness! :P Thanks for your reply. LS
