Curious Cliches, adages and idioms

How often do you use a cliché

Some curious ones:

As old as the hills - How old were the hills?

All dressed up and nowhere to go - Been there. 

All is fair in love and war - Well I'm not sure about this one!

He who hesitates is lost.  - May be true.  Carpe Diem. 

Too many cooks spoil the broth. - Especially true in a kitchen with too many women. 

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. - We'll find out.  It's apple season. 

Empty vessels make the most noise.  - Yikes!  I think I work with a few empty vessels!

As you sow, so shall you reap. - Is this like " you reap what you will sow"?

Charity begins at home.  - So true! 

There are so many, many that are said nearly every day in one conversation or another.  Very interesting.  I go on with a long list, but think I'll save some for another time for lighthearted thought provoking phrases. 

Vaya con Dios!

bring down an old television from upstairs.  The TV downstairs in the living room is kaput.

 But tonight is really crazy, as the local radio talk show will be talking about the TIME magazine cover about attachment parenting.  I’m not going to get into opinions here, other than it appears to be unhealthy.  I’m more concerned over the  agenda of the magazine.  Are they trying to create sensationalism?  Are they just after the ‘selling factor’?  I don’t know. 

There has been no television here for a little over a month. The TV was only 9 years old.  Well, to some that may seem ancient, but to me would prefer a bit longer shelf life.  Sigh.

American Bandstand At the Hop with Dick Clark

From "poodle skirts and angora sweaters" (Dick Clark on 30th Anniversary Special) 

American icon and America's oldest teenager passed away today, after suffering a massive heart attack. God Bless Dick Clark, we will miss you.  Besides encouraging young aspiring teenagers and musicians, I would say he brought many stroke victims encouragement and hope by his perseverance.

Like many Americans, I grew up with American Bandstand and saw him officially ring in the New Year on New Year's Eve.  He was an energetic andd ynamic man whom everyone loved, and always a true gentleman. Inspiring many musicians and young talent, he will be truly missed. 

When I heard the news today about Dick Clark, this song immediately came to mind. 



At the Hop, Danny & the Juniors
