Writing a pangram takes skill, a skill we all can have fun with. Trying to create a sentence using every letter of the alphabet is a great way to pass time when you're looking for something to do!

This blog article is not about writing per se but more of a fun historical look at the ABC Song. This is a tune we all know very well and when we become parents we use this song to teach our children because it was tried and tested positive to be a great learning tool.

With the rise of the Occupy Wall Street movement there has been an awakening about money and how few people own most of the world’s wealth. This group has been coined the 1% and there are no doubts that these people are pecunious (rolling in dough). In fact, many of them are centimillionaires (worth more than a $100 million). Now, in order to be a pecumious individual you need to have a chrematistic (occupied in the pursuit of wealth) yet quaestuary (profit seeking) attitude. The chrematistic people who spend every moment they can in the pursuit of wealth are nummamorous. (Latin: nummus = coin and amourous = love). There are two other ways to describe these people, plutolatry and plutomania.

Uncommon words are great to unearth and fun to interject them into conversation. Nowadays there’s a lot of truth being unearthed as to what goes on behind closed doors in politics and in corporations so here are some words that are quite fitting. Are you well-versed in psephology? Chances are you have this knowledge. Psephology is the study of the election process to know that politics is far from being squeaky clean.

How many times have you been in conversation with someone and you want to use a word to describe something, but you just don't know what it is. For example; it can be a nuisance when that 'plastic thingy' comes off the end of a shoelace and it frays. Imagine being with friends and you notice this is happening to someone. You’d get people scratching their heads if you spoke out and said, "Your aglet is missing." Increasing your vocabulary can be a fun hobby.
