Couldn’t resist one more poem starting with all the same letter especially since I have to get back on my diet. I’ve less than vigilante lately. Sighs.

New word (or rather very old word as it’s considered obsolete) of the day is the verb “debel” meaning “to conquer, subdue, overcome” with some definitions putting it within the confines of “conquer (the opponent) in combat”. Once a rather popular word, it lost it’s popularity with the advent of the 1800s.

You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon like I did with “danish donuts -neonblond”. Just doing “donuts” was dangerous — boxes of donuts popped up!
