Metaphors in American Politics. An excellent page explaining  synecdoche vs. metonym vs. toponym.
Metonymy Metonymy (pronounced meh-TAHN-uh-me) and synecdoche (sih-NECK-duh-key) are two specialized forms of figurative language. Metonymy occurs when a word for a feature of something is used to represent the entire concept.  For example, in the famous phrase the pen is mightier than the sword, the pen represents writing and the sword represents fighting.

Rebel against mediocrity! "[T]his pop nihilism is a prevalent attitude among the rising generation of young adults: Life is ridiculous, unfair and hard. So forget responsibilities; self-medicate and live for the next fleeting high. And as you might imagine, this vision of youth doesn’t produce adults. It produces eternal adolescents." [1] Instead, DO HARD THINGS!

Read or listen to [1] for the whole message spoken by my brother in Christ, +John Stonestreet.

Google auto-awesome. Stupid robot aesthetics. Humans can see that it flunks as a panorama. Sort of a pretty "double-exposure," though. And the coincidence is too strong to ignore. This is the Double Trouble, N8241, landing after Saturday's 2015 Friends & Lovers Balloon Rally launch.

Tonight I wanted to include a portion of my screen in an email. I'm using a Chromebook and loving it! On my Windows desktop I love the Evernote desktop app, but I actually prefer the OneNote clipper because I usually don't want to store a copy in Evernote. I have the Chrome Evernote Web Clipper extension, and I learned tonight that it has a screen clip feature, too. Good enough! The Evernote web app integrates just fine with Gmail (Inbox for me − would you like an invite?), as one would expect. It's all browser data. Simply copy image from Evernote, paste inline in my message, and I was done.

I Googled, hoping to find an app, but the app most recommended, Powerbot, offers no free version. Meh. Support Evernote instead. I'm a happy, loyal customer who has paid in the past and is presently satisfied with the free features.

I'm not into chocolate or the rest of the chic, self-indulgent "because I'm worth it / I deserve it" vibe. I wouldn't come by myself, only with chicks (don't tell my wife). Perfect for before of after a chick flick. This place is overpriced for the portion size. I don't like the flavor of their recipes. Still, three stars because if you're into this sort of thing you'll get what you pay for. I like the hug mug. And the service is excellent. Good advice. Attentive. Today all I ordered was toast. It was completely under-cooked and cold. C'mon? Wife gave me the rest of her omelette & potatoes. Both were perfectly done. Delicious.

I agree with all the previous reviewers, but I will give a warning: Be prepared to be underwhelmed by the sauces. I tried all five. Two are mustard-based. They were delicious, but I'm not into that. Maybe on onion rings, but that's not what I ordered. The mild was mild. I'm not into that. The tangy was tangy. My favorite by a slight margin. The hickory was tasty, but mild. One of the mustard sauces was spicy, but not spicy enough for me. And too mustardy for meat, unless you're into that. I'm not. What's missing from this BBQ place is a fiery red sauce. I'd even settle for "hot." I want to end on a positive note. There are many. This place earned its "Excellent" rating from me. The meats were delicious! Tender! I had the "burnt ends." Never heard of them before. It's the top inch of the brisket, cut into one-inch squares. One side is crunchy. The rest is tender and cooked to perfection. I had three pork ribs. Dry rubbed. Tender, meaty, and tasty. For sides I had baked beans cooked to perfection. Slaw is a dry style. I like mine more creamy. The side salad with lemon vinaigrette was also delicious.

I was on vacation and found this place googling for Cajun restaurants in Little Rock. This is an error -- probably keying off the chef's "New Orleans training," but I'm very glad I found this eatery. The chef was patient with my ignorance -- Acadian food has French influence and focuses on local ingredients. He changes the menu every six weeks. Because I walked in expecting Cajun, he offered to blacken my orange roughy. It was prepared to perfection. The others in my party had chicken, pasta, and salmon. We all had the roasted corn pesto chowder. Everything was delicious. Beautiful presentation. Creative combinations of ingredients. I never had the opportunity to taste wasabi carrots before (served with the salmon). I loved them! Other have praised the deck. I was apprehensive because the restaurant was completely empty at 6:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, but it was only because everyone was on the deck. We chose to eat inside and had it all to ourselves. The service was flawless!
