Welcome Back!

I have returned!

After a brief Holiday break, I'm back at the keyboard and ready to spread the goodness...

I'll have some Christmas goodies for you in a bit, but I thought I'd start things off easy with today's Word Of The Day!

ramble \RAM-buhl\, verb, noun:

1. to wander about
2. a walk for pleasure without predetermined destination
3. to talk or write about one thing and then another without useful connection

c 1443, unknown origin, perhaps frequentative of romen "to walk, go" of via romblen "to ramble." The vowel change was probably influenced by Middle Dutch rammelen, a derivative of rammen "used of the night wanderings of the amorous cat."
