O is for Oxymora

Yes !! Oxymora is the plural of Oxymoron in case you didn't know(just came to know very recently)

Life for me is a paradox and what more can be more fun than using Oxymora. An oxymoron is a figure of speech in which words that seem contradictory appear together to form a fun combination. Some  of my favorites are Military Intelligence, Original Copies, Exact Estimate, Old News,Living Dead, Deafening Silence and my personal best is Microsoft Works, :D

Here is a link to some really good oxymora......

Introduction of M.

 

Abba - Mama Mia

The word "mamma"is a word that has the meaning of mother in almost every language in Europe. It is not always spelled the same way. But mom. mum, mam, mammy, maman, mamma, mor, mutti...The famous Abba group even play in a musical called "Mama Mia".

 Mamma mia, here I go again
 My my, how can I resist you?
 Mamma mia, does it show again?
 My my, just how much I've missed you 
Yes, I've been brokenhearted 
Blue since the day we parted 
Why, why did I ever let you go? 
Mamma mia, now I really know,
 My my, I could never let you go.

You see "M" cannot be missed in this songtext! 

 If you want to participate in the ABC Wednesday meme, please don't forget to refer to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC.And put  the logo in the sidebar  or in your post itself. This week we are looking for words beginning with M!

Liverpool Uk..... Love of Life.....

 Liverpool my home town is a most interesting City , it sits on the  edge of the River Mersey and is steeped in maritime history. Across the river is the Wirral Peninsular where many of the professionals, who worked in the thriving city lived, it was affectionately known as the dormitory to Liverpool as the wealthy earned their fortunes in the City and took the Mersey ferries home to The Wirral to sleep. 

 

One of famous Mersey Ferry Boats chugging across the river conveying the weary workers to their homes after a hard day keeping the wheels of commerce in progress. The three buildings behind the ferry boat are called The Three Graces, on the left is The Liver Building then The Cunard Building and finally The port of Liverpool Building. Just to the right is The Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, which is set slightly back from the waterfront.

I had the privilege of working for a firm of Investment Managers and Stock Brokers in The Port of Liverpool Building. It was a joy to work there as my desk looked directly across the river so life was never dull watching the comings and goings on the river. There were wonderful sunsets across the river too, which reflected a visage of The Welsh Hills just beyond The Wirral. 


Images of the beautiful interior of the building, starting from top right looking up from the four galleried floors to the spectacular domed ceiling, then middle left the winding stairway up to the 4th floor where I worked...I used to almost sprint up the stairs as part of a keep fit campaign ! I was about 35 years of age then.  To the right is part of the beautifully crafted ground floor.

 Happy days for me then I had met Ian, soon to be my second husband and wonderful step daddy to our three girls.

It's little wonder I could sprint up those stairs!

As it happened I had been living on The Wirral for twenty years but decided to sell my home and move back to my roots in LIVERPOOL when we married.

We have never looked back... The three girls all did very well in their new schools, LIVERPOOL has some of the finest state schools in the country.

They are all happily married, two of them to LIVERPOOL boys and one to a Lovely guy from London....

Up to date we have four Loving grandchildren, so all I can say is


LIVERPOOL I  LOVE YOU !

 

I am dedicating my LIVERPOOOL post to dear Lorne and Leslie to just let them know how we all are thinking about them.

 I know Leslie has a special place in her heart for LIVERPOOL after her visit two years ago. It was such a joy to meet her , I felt as if I'd known her a lifetime.

   

 My sincere thanks to the lovely Denise for devising ABCWENESDAY and also to the legendary Roger for his hard work as the Administrator.
