    I used to read a lot and make sure I learned the words that I didn't know. Never had a lot of use for a thesaurus. Love language.

    The GOP can't win on ideas. They can only win by lying, cheating, and stealing. So they do.

    •  I had the same "problem." (0+ / 0-)

      I read "The Complete Sherlock Holmes" - a two volume set. Usually with a dictionary on my lap to help. I learned some fancy words and began dropping them into conversation.

      Problem was, I rarely had conversations with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

      Speaking of words, I have the same last name as you. I think it's a strictly USA spelling.  I always thought it was from Hessian Schneiders who stayed after the Revolutionary War and tried to conceal their Germanity.  

      But, I mean, come on, Snyder's Pretzels? Totally German.

      "Jersey_Boy" was taken.
