By Debra Dobbins

For Hattie’s information, "elocution" means the art of public speaking, usually associated with a studied or somewhat formal presentation.

It comes from the same Latin word that gave us “eloquence.” For more on that word, go to the entry of Feb. 8, 2012.

People should not make fun of natural calamities. It is not even a disaster related to global warming. It is just wind. Dangerous wind came from nowhere but took everything belonged to people. There were many who lost their precious ones. So please don’t! datanet pacific
