#A133 (alluvial to almandite)

"Hello word nerds. Welcome to another episode of the dictionary yet. We're still doing this real quick. Today is June twenty first, but when I'm recording this, it's not June twenty-first. But when you're listening to this, no, that's probably not right either. When this posts it will be June twenty-first, and that is the summer solstice of twenty nineteen. I love this day because it is the longest day of the year it has the most sunlight, and I think we could all use some more sunlight now in again. So go ahead, take advantage of the longest day of the year. If you're in the northern hemisphere, if you're in the southern hemisphere, it's probably your shortest day of the year and apologies for that. But in six months, it will be flip-flopped, and you can be very happy for your longest day of the year, and we will be in the cold and the dark. And that is really depressing. To me that time of year. All right. First word for this episode is. Alluvial. A. L. L. U. V. I A L. This is the first form. It's an adjective from seventeen eighty one relating to composed of or found in alluvia m-, as in alluvial soil or alluvial diamonds, next. We have the second form of alluvial. This is a noun from eighteen sixteen and alluvial deposit. Next is alluvial fan. F A N. This is to separate words. This is a noun from eighteen sixty two the alluvial deposit of a stream where it issues from a gorge upon a plane or of a tributary stream at its junction with the main stream, and we actually have a little black and white drawing of an alluvial fan. It just looks like some hills with a river in the middle. And then at the end of the river, sort of. Fans out, which is where they get the word fan from next is alluvial on. A. L. L. U. V. I. O N. This is a noun from fifteen thirty six one the wash or flow of water against ashore to we have these synonyms flood and inundation three the synonym alluvia m-, which we will be reading shortly four and a session to land by the gradual edition of matter as by deposit of alluvia m- that then belongs to the owner of the land to which it has added. Also the land so added. The says this is from the Latin aware a which means to flow past or deposit of water. And that is from LA Veira, or LA the vs might be w so it might be law wear a which means to wash and there's more at the word lie. L Y E, every time I hear the word lie. I think of the movie. Fight club. And next is alluvia. M-. A. L. L. U. V. I U M. This is a noun from circa sixteen fifty six clay silt sand gravel or similar Detroit o material deposited by running water next is all wheel drive all wheel is hyphenated. This is a noun from nineteen thirty four and automobile drive mechanism that acts on all four wheels of the vehicle next. We have the word ally. Or also ally, both pronunciations are correct. This is the first form of it. It's spelled. A. L L Y. This is a verb from the fourteenth century transitive definition is to unite or form a connection or relation between synonym is associate as in allied himself with a wealthy family by marriage in-transit definition is. To form or enter into an alliance as in two factions allying with each other. The etymology says this is from the Latin Ali Garay, which means to bind to that is from league ouray, which means to bind, and there's more at the word ligature. Now, we have the second form of ally or ally. This is a noun from fifteen ninety eight one a sovereign or state associated with another by treaty or league to a plant or animal linked to another by genetic or tech sonic proximity. Three one that is associated with another as a helper. Synonym is exhilarating. Now we have ally again, but this is a suffix. So it is dash. A. L. L Y, it says it's actually an adverb suffix so before the main definition, it has just a dash L Y as in terrifically. And then in that in the word. Terrifically A, L L Y is a cts to show that, that's the part that we're talking about. And then the main definition is in adverbs formed from adjectives in I see with no alternative form in icy a L. So it's talking about adjectives that end in icy, or I see a l so, for instance, in their example, terrific or terrific Li it ends in ic-, which is where A L L Y gets added to the word terrific. But if you were to have a word like radical, that's the just the first one that I can think of that ended in icy AL venue, just add L Y to turn it into an adverb. I think I figured it out next is I think it's pronounced. Alal-. A L, L, Y L. This is an adjective from eighteen fifty four being or containing the unsaturated monovalent radical. C h two c h c h to a lot of C H is, and it looks like the analogy is telling me that it is from the Latin word Allie, m which means garlic, and we've talked about that before next is the word a lillick a fun. Word to say L, L, Y L. I see this is an adjective from eighteen fifty six involving or characteristic of an ally ill radical. So, of course, L is the word that we just read. And that's funny. That radical is mentioned because I completely made that one up when we were looking at that adverb suffix next is the word alma. Jest. A. L. M. A. G. E. S T. This is a noun from the fourteenth century, any of several early medieval treatises on a branch of knowledge. The etymology is saying, this is from the aerobic all Modu STI the Arabic version of Ptolemies astronomy. Treaties treatise. And that is from, I'll plus the Greek Majestee, which literally means the greatest, as in composition. I guess, so that's what alma just means. Next is almo mater, two words, a l m a next word. M. A. T E R. This is a noun from sixteen fifty one one, a school college or university, which one has attended or from which one has graduated to the song, or hymn of a school college or university, the etymology, I think is kind of interesting, it's Latin, if you didn't already know that, and it means fostering, mother. So I think what it's saying is that the, the school or college or university that you graduated from is kind of law, like kind of like the mother, and it has fostered you it has given you education so you can go out. Into the world. That's kind of nice next. We have almanac. This is a noun from the fourteenth century one eight publication containing astronomical. And meteorological data for a given year, an often, including a miscellany of other information, I had trouble with the word meteorological, seemed like I was adding an extra syllable. But I think it's right to a usually annual publication containing statistical tabular and general information next. We have all. Mundine. A. L. M. A N D I N E this is a noun from the fifteenth century. We just have these synonym almond date, which is our next word. But let's take a look at the etymology first pairing this down. It looks like it's from the middle Latin Alabama Dina, and that is from Alabama, which is an ancient. City in Asia, Minor. And now we have the word Allman dight, and I think this will actually be the last word for this episode. A. L M, A, N D. I thi this is a noun from circa, eighteen sixty eight a deep red garnet consisting of an iron aluminum silicate, and that will be the end of this episode. Thank you so much for listening. And until next time this is Spencer reading the dictionary. Thank you. And goodbye.

Do you play it above or below inactive? I'm not sure next. We have a lot. T. A. L. L. O T T. This is a noun from eighteen forty six one to whom an allotment is made next.

Willie L. Brown Jr.

"Welcome to Japan. This this is your host. Jared Blumenfeld I and each of us. There are those who have lifted us up those who have helped us become who we are personally and professionally when I walked into room. Two hundred of San San Francisco City Hall and met Willie L Brown junior for the first time he was the man and I was the third year old radical environmentalist. It was two thousand and one and he hired me on the spot to lead. San Francisco's Environment Department. He took a big risk on me but more than that as a bus. He backed up every decision. I ever made both good and bad. And I'm glad to say we've been friends ever since in California and beyond Willie Brown is a legend. He is and will likely remain California's longest serving speaker. Andrew San Francisco's first African American Mayor Willie Brown was born in the East Texas town of Mineola where mob violence often prevented African Americans from voting. Willie's first job was as a shoe shine boy in whites only Baba shop. He later worked as the janitor. A field hand and as a fry cook and in nineteen fifty wanted the age of seventy. He went to San Francisco to live with his uncle and in in order to pay for college at San Francisco State and then Hastings Law School Willie to the Doorman and as jeter Willie Brown was first elected to the California. The phone is state assembly in one thousand nine hundred sixty four nine thousand nine hundred seventy five brown authored and lobbied for the successful passage of the consenting adult sex bill that legalized is homosexuality in California and in Nineteen Eighty Willie Brown became California's Assembly Speaker. And according to The New York Times became one of the country's most most powerful state legislators in addition to all Willy Brown's accomplishment. He's also got impatience of Huma. An amazing sense of style a love of of Great Food and watches no less than four movies a week. Maybe that's because in the ninety s Willie played himself in the godfather part three had roles in Georgia the jungle. The princess diaries one of my favorite movies and in the hope where Willie played the Mayor San Francisco which he actually was in the real world from nineteen one thousand nine hundred sixty two two thousand and four today among the literally hundreds of activities that Willie Brown engages in each week. He helps oversee the Willie. L Brown Junior Institute Institute on Politics and Public Service at San Francisco State which trains Juden for careers in Municipal County and regional governments. I need up with Willie. Brown at Cafe de la Presse on Grant Street in San Francisco recalled this Christmas special. This is the Willie Brown Christmas special. So Willie Christmas present for me exactly original original scrooge opposite the opposite screwed. You're the most generous person I've ever met. I remember like literally the first day I started working for. You gave everyone a bottle of dom perignon champagne for Christmas. You are the most generous Christmas ever. I love Having Fun with people and I want everybody to be happy and so therefore if I can share in bring that joy and that smile I do you really do I think about you said jared two things one come and join me for for these meetings and at the end of the meeting you said what do you notice this and I said actually. He didn't say anything in the entire meeting. And you're like that's the nature of really really is i. Hi developed the ability along time ago too. Listen and I think jared I came from my mother. She told me in Texas years ago zero before she let me fly on my own. That you really better off. If you hear everybody out you learn a lot more than you trying to share. You're you're limited wisdom with them and that has parlayed into a successful career. Not only did he listen to. People came into the room. I bet you did something that I didn't think any other mayor of the politicians do on Saturdays like the first Saturday of the month. You'd open up City Hall and you'd sit down with people and listen into them and literally from crackpots geniuses and then you'd send them my way I sent them your way but it was not exclusive. I'd suspend them the other people as well I wouldn't overload you. But clearly people who live in a city where they have elected elected representation that elected representation needs to afford them an ear whether you can do anything about their problem on not having having somebody to at least listen to it is almost as important as an answer. We had a lot of fun one of the funniest things we ever did. was someone had the segway and they brought it to city hall and I just happened to appear in the moment that you had two of them I and you and I went all the way around on the marble floors of these segues. An I remember the very well because I had no idea there were no breaks and that you really had to figure out how to use your body. Wait till stop that segue and John Door who apparently had been the silicone valley financer of that instrument of that. Obviously that environmentally sensitive instrument really wanted to highlight it and he had not been able to get any way to highlight it. You and I robbing around City Hall highlighted Segues more than anybody in the airport who uses it currently as as a means of transportation for security purposes. I've kind of get to see how different Sacramento is compared to the Sacramento. That you you described to me I mean the Sacramento you describe to me was like very orderly what's happened and kind of reflect back on the Sacramento that the you helped oversee well. The voters in nineteen ninety pass something called term limits in. It literally meant that after six years every member of the lower house of the legislature would be out for life every senator after two terms eight years would be out for life so people no longer considered being in the halls of the legislature as a legitimate career option. Where they would what I learn and then they could execute and they could really do something about addressing the needs of the people of this state that that has plagued the legislature till this day not until about two thousand twelve that they're get to be any light as to why I you ought to last more than six years when they went to a twelve year Max by all the members of either house us in that too has not yet been a real blessing for what we need in terms of getting back to the stable relationship that I enjoyed in my experience for more than thirty years of being state elected official state of California no longer has access to that kind of expertise? It may eventually develop that kind of expertise. But in the meantime there is a major handicap. Because you do not have skill management theory a Titians who we'll have real beliefs other than that pushed by their party. Label or by whomever may have sent them there. I suspect that Washington suffers from the same illness that the state of California suffers from and that is that people do not fill the need to really be career oriented in every aspect of what they're doing one for public policy purposes that means you're RMC is and your advocacy may not stand the test of time in the measurement nation man by fellow. Legislators you no longer have that now. It's just quick dry intolerant around differences of opinion. And that's heard in this democracy one of the things that I know you for is you're incredibly responsive if someone someone phoned back if someone sends you note you send a note like that also seems completely out of vogue. How do we bring back some of that? Some of that humanity not to politics. It'll come with new people being elected to public office who are not burdened with answering only to a very limited constituency and who can actually based on their training and their beliefs managed to get themselves elected and reelected selected on the basis of their performance rather than they're entertaining when young people. Come to you Willie and say I'm I'm thinking of entering politics. How do you help them through that? Discussion eyesight them in my own career. I immigrated here from Texas at the High School went to college and Law. School got credentialed and I tell them right out of the box. You cannot be helpful unless you maximize your training opportunities and your credentialing and then after you've done that you'll be in a position where you can demonstrate service that might it causes you to be rewarded by people asking you the run. It's really better off. If somebody some movement some collection of peoples as I think you would make a good representative this self starting representation. Being the hallmark of what most office holders APP today is ultimately counterproductive. Because usually they stand for nothing. They believe in nothing except reelection. The San Francisco the you when you first came here from the Texas is very different than the one now like. Tell us about like those changes. Are they a positive. Are they negative. Like how do you view the San Francisco Today San Francisco today as dramatically different from what it was when I arrived when I arrived. It didn't take me more than a month to recognize that there was a great opportunity for hard work service and believe ability to be rewarded. That's no longer the mentality of San Francisco. San Francisco is as played. Eight with in EPA Tude among people particularly elected type as is the case with Washington DC Z.. Or as the case with the White House and that ultimately means it's less of an attractive exciting inspirational city than than it was when Iraq is hard to believe. Like I make you two thousand and one which is coming up on nineteen years. It feels like the blink of an eye. I think what one of the things that you'll thinking about as as we enter twenty twenty that give you hope and inspiration when it comes to San Francisco Disco. Well I frankly hope that my own children will start to think positively about participating in the political process and pursuant public office. I would hope that the interns that I am shepherd and Marshall and at San Francisco go state working in city government will translate into people who will contribute one way or another to the operation of the city and I'm hopeful that the radical changes that need to be made and how we govern ourselves in the city. When I arrived here almost every body? He was a citywide elected official. Not a local little district elected official because the city is so small in it of itself. If that process can be changed the results will be. I think again optimism about this city one of the positive things for me about San Francisco as a as they spend more time in Sacramento is. The food is still incredible. Like tell us about your love of food what you find out in this city almost right out of the box his that. You really don't need a kitchen in your house that their kitchens on every block in every neighborhood good and the quality of what's there and the diversity of what's there plus the cultural influence of what's their makes dining dining experience to be explored and employed in enjoyed as much as traveling to the seven continents Of the world. That's how important it is in San Francisco to have an appreciation for good quality taste in in food and drink and believe me coming out of Texas where there was very few options for what you had in terms of food in the get here to San Francisco in one day eat Mexican food the next day. Eight Korean food the next day eat eat food from a prepared in the south where I came from is amazing unto itself but to find it distributed all over the city. Where for every neighborhood has his own indigenous group of restaurants and they're usually populated by people who are not trying to conquer the world world in the in terms of food but they simply work and people producing a quality product that allows their family? They have a a place to live in and in survive while at the same time serving their neighbors and being paid for it it's fabulous to. How do you got which restaurant to go to any time? Usually it's who whomever I happen to be with. Somebody is visiting me from Sacramento in Los Essential lives or from Texas or I will inquire as to what their preferences may be in. Most people. Interestingly enough if they're not from San Francisco us go want to explore something unique about the city in always you start with food the next next thing after food. You're veracious watcher of movies. Like every time I talked to you like how many movies you ought to week. It's incredible AH. I am short on my movie attendance of late because of so many other things that I am mandated to to do. But if I don't see four movies a week I am not satisfied at all and interestingly enough I see whatever is on the screen. I don't really plan to go to a particular movie. I don't say hey I'm GonNa go see star wars while. No that's not true. I'M GONNA go see whatever's take time at this moment that I haven't to our opening to see I don't care what it is. That's how much I love movies. One of the hallmarks of Willie Brown in which is on display. Even though we're in a CREPE ARY is your sartorial excellent like why is it so important in coming into twenty twenty any to dress pefectly. Well I have always always loved clothing as a matter of fact jared when I lived in taxes X.'s. People now say they shop online. Well you know that was something called a catalog and it was a sears roebuck catalog. In sometimes I'd order from sears Roebuck. And by the time they shipped to me. I'd already outgrown what I often so but it was a preference for clothing that I came from a combination of my uncle in my mother the two of them at all times would be impeccable. They could come to breakfasts and be well-dressed and as a result of that it became a part of who I am and I discovered that it really is a cause for people to pay attention to you when you've paid attention to yourself in every way when you've made it clearly comfortable for them not to have to turn away if there's something about you. That's the shovel. That is very helpful. So you're definitely the as strong and vital as a man half you're age what's your what's your secret. I mean you've told us about food and being well dressed like how do you do it really well. You really do need to physically take care of south. Under all circumstances you really need to be mindful Foale of the health requirements. You need to be mindful of the exercise requirements. You need to be mindful of the fresh air you need debris you need to to avoid things that are detrimental to your physical system whether we smokin war excessive alcohol or any of those kinds they stay away from all those things then no reason to do it and you don't really enjoy it anyway. All those things are true but you must also workout. Well I love frankly. Frankly I love going to the gym. I lived in buildings which they have such a facility and I try to do at least an hour a day one of the things that you notice when I spend time around you. Is you kind of have this very grounded. Sense of calmness. Have many people are losing their head around you so you always keep your com. What's the secret? I am concerned when there is really trauma in the lives of other people but I know to evidence any wall. Inability to be of assistance is counterproductive. So I want at all times to be where that I can actually eight people rather than have people trying to aid me. You've been an amazing mental to to countless people. How do you see mental mental shift as as part of your legacy? Mentorship is a mandatory. Believe me when people talk about what are you want to be a your legacy building named after you. Do you want a bridge named deal. Do you want a program Nam Nam. No I want a collection of replacements. sements who have in one manner or another learned from me adopted much of what I do and and then expand what their own ability beyond where I let them go. I mean that that's an amazing statement of legacy in San Francisco plays kind of oversize role both in terms of California politics but also national politics. The state is the fifth largest. Just Kinda me in the world so even when California's having this big role in the nation why on California issues taking center stage simply flavor. 'cause people do not understand nor appreciate California even the newscasters were unable to penetrate in a way that would allow California to become the issue California's performance in terms of how you manage food production. How you manage water distribution how you address the land issue? How do you address the issue of diversity how you're just the issue of education occasion and above all else how you address? The issue of economics represents a prototype that many of the places in the nation Russian could use yet the California experience in California concept a sometimes demeaned sometimes laughed at and that's unfortunate so when do a mayor And I remember like we created a single Earth Day breakfast with Francesca Veto and it's probably like the nine hundred day breakfast by now in my last day breakfast we did this in cold. How Green is Brown? Aw and his amazing you set this goal of zero waste for trash you put in place. The integrated past management for the city's parks you acquired. New Buildings Be Green. We had the first hydrogen fuel cell Honda. which is like three million dollars? You and I nearly nearly crashed like you did all these green things like how. How do you view the environment now? And at the time. Why did you WANNA take credit? Full the green stuff you're doing well it's important. Frankly that credit not be in the consideration of people engage in an innovative in creative ways. Many people are motivated if they think they're going to be acknowledged as having done it in so if you can get them to infecting gauge and become involved let them take their credit frankly in the halls of the legislature. Sure my goal in life was to have every member have his name on a bill before mine and that was important. And it's the same way if we're going to deal with the issues involved in the environment we've really got to get people motivated. Frankly to make it a priority with them for clean air for good quality. Water somehow convince people if we can that the the whole business of what happens with energy must be done in such a way that it improves. The environment rather than adversely personally affects environment the business involving climate. It's clearly some that we need to try to figure out how to get people involved. And the way in which the motivate them to so participate. My goal was always that I did not whether it was the ban on assault weapons that we had Mike. Ross do a whether it was or divestment in apartheid that we had maxine waters does do that free Nelson Mandela whether it was The business of emissions of that we had Byron Sher the come the responsible person for whether it was the business of managing water along before anybody tried to manage water charlie warn Tried to do exactly that and we hope orchestrate that whole business of what happens with reference to on the health L. Standards that emanate from environmental quality and environmental control. We had a number of people trying to put those those programs together particularly interested enough. Legislators from places like Marin County or legislators the ones from Santa Barbara area we at the state level now have a governor who experienced that kind of development in San Francisco as part of all the things that I ever dead dead and with him at the helm now. You've got a better shot in his emphasis on the Central Valley in the way. Okay then he has been playing and his becoming like the governor from the Central Valley. Although he's from San Francisco will cause the farmers is to want to follow his leadership on land. Planning and land use all those things are part of what we call climate control and environment. One thing that you also didn't take credit full but you did which actually has led to the development of the southeast part of the city's you help close down hunters point power plant you you took on. PG early and hod this issue of environmental justice namely if you look at pollution across the United States Cross is California you can find where the pollution is gonna be by wear low income communities of Colorado folk involve. If they're isolated there will not be enough strength politically to achieve anything. So you really need to try to engage and involve and have people not become only addicted to participate in in their short and narrow goal period in. That is how I tried to manage and how I tried operate so as you think about. Willy Brown's Christmas special which is like. What are you hoping for in the next few days like Christmas is offering time anxiety? How how do you manage this time of year mayor? I must tell you that. It's kind of amazing because the recycling of gifts have become the cornerstone of. I'm almost everybody these days and so what I've decided to do. Is I'll give a gift but I take directly to you and make you open it in front of me and and get your reaction because hold on to the return receipt and last night that actually delivered a gift to my lady friend Sonia and she and I said you know the nature of what I'm giving you is usable immediately because it's so cold in in San Francisco and you don't really have a quality code. She opened it and she says you know you. You're missing as what am I missing. Either you can't see a you know remember. I don't like blue. Eyed bought her a blue coke corrected almost immediately immediately back back to the place where I got. It got the same coat but in a different color it was perfect. I anticipate somehow having that become the cornerstone stone of the Willie Brown. Christmas I like re gifting is the like reused gift. Yeah recycle final question is I grew up with two Jewish parents celebrated Christmas and I kind of feel gypped. I don't get to go to Chinese food on Christmas Day. which is like a Jewish tradition of like? I want to do that. Have you ever done that. Well no I have not because on Christmas Day among black people here only black food. You're in trouble so it's GonNa be Christmas Turkey stuff with corn bread dressing sweet potatoes and in this case real yams and obviously sweet potato pie or a a pie that represents something different from what we normally called. Pumpkin feel feel bad they are amendment. Well well yes. That's part of my birthday because I li- and celebrate my birthday more often than most people have birthdays. That's a that's a good trick. I like that it works very well. Well thank you said. It's been a pleasure. I love catching out with you. And I hope you have a fabulous twenty twenty all right. Thank you very much a huge. Thank you to my mental friend and boss Willie Brown. I continue to lend so much from this living legend from the importance of listening a frightening for what you believe in the long game but mostly what I walk away from each each meeting with Willie l Brown. Junior is a sense of vitality of Vega and for love of life. Thank you so much being part of the culture journey from the entire hardship Gotcha as true sound engineer spayed executive producer.

"Hello word nerds. First word for two day is allocution. A. L. L. O. C. U. T. I. O N. This is a noun from sixteen fifteen a formal speech, especially an authoritative or, or a Tory address. The etymology says this is Latin ala Kyo, or Allah, que-, which means to speak to, and that is from ad plus low Kwee, which means to speak next is all of two separate words. This is an adverb from eighteen twenty nine. We have the synonym fully F U L L Y as in. She's all of twenty years old next is a log. Humous. A. L. L. O. G. A. M. O U S. This is an adjective from circa, eighteen ninety reproducing. Ng by cross fertilization, Alaga Amee is a noun next. We have allo generic. A. L. L. O G, E, N E, I see could also be allergenic, which is what I thought the word was in the first place. This is a an adjective from nineteen sixty one involving derived from, or being individuals of the same species that are sufficiently.

So I guess what it's saying is, basically, the shape of a letter is called an aloe graph. Learn something new every day. Especially when you read the dictionary next, we have Allama tree. A. L. L. O.

This is a noun from nineteen Forty-five one of a set of forms that a more fem- may take in different contexts as in the s of cats, the E N of oxen, and these zero suffix of sheep are alum morphs of the English plural morphine. So I think what this is saying is that there's a thing called the plural morphine, which is the thing that exists to make a word plural. So the s in cats, the E N in oxen and nothing to the word sheep. And so those are called, although morphs aloe more Fiqh is an adjective, and ELO morphism is a noun I think I would have. To learn what other morphines are to find out what aloe morphs are, but I have a little bit more of knowledge of that now, which I probably won't remember next. We have alone j- I think that's how it's pronounced A L L O N G E the pronunciation guide is one of the stranger ones I've seen. It's got an A dash apostrophe L O with the the line over it to say that it's a long. Oh. Then there's an N A super script end. So it's small and it's up top. And then a Z h don't worry, I won't keep on describing the pronunciation guides. This is a noun from circa eighteen fifty nine. We just have the synonym writer to a and writer is spelled R, I, D R. The etymology says this is French and it literally means. Lengthening. So if I were to say this with a French accent, I would say at horribly, but it would be something sort of, like alone JR. But somebody who knows French would say, it much better than me. Next is. Allopathic. A. L. L. O. P. A T H.

The etymology says this is made combining all, plus the Greek Padro, which means fatherland, and that is from Potter, which means father, and there's more at the word father next is Ella Fain, the end of it is P. H. A N E. This is a noun from circa eighteen twenty one and a morpheus translucent mineral of various colors often occurring in, in crustaceans, or stalactites forms and consisting of a hydrogen aluminum.

Sure on what they mean by aspirated and Annaspiratou, but I might have to look that up. But here we've got another aloe word that is related to letters in sounds in such Allah phone, and Ella morph, Allah phonic is an adjective next is. Allo polly. -ployed. A. L. L. O. P. O. L.

Polly, try and say that ten times fast next is Allah, pure and all a. L. L. O. P. U R, I N O L.

This episode is the phrase all or nothing. It is hyphenated. This is an adjective from seventeen sixty five one just has the synonym all or none, which is what we just read to a accepting, no less than everything as in. He's an all or nothing perfectionist. I Kana used to be that type of perfectionist, but I've chosen not to be in my old, age and to be risking everything as in an all or nothing combat strategy that will be the end of this episode.
