21-Q by Roger

In English, most question words start with the letter W: who, when, where, why. Even how contains a W.

But I took high school French several decades ago, and now my daughter is likewise studying the language. I recall that the question words often with the letter Q.

quand -when

qui – who/whom

quoi – what

quel or quelle + noun – what/which

qu’est-ce qui – what (subject of the verb)

The word for why contains a Q – pourquoi

Here are some QUESTION songs:

13 Questions– Seatrain (1970), produced by Beatles producer George Martin. Went to #49 on the Billboard charts in 1971, it has a bit of the feel of the band Chicago.

Questions 67 and 68 – Chicago (1969) ne the Chicago Transit Authority, until the transportation entity objected. Went to #71 on the Billboard charts in 1969.

Question – the Moody Blues (1970). Went to #21 on the Billboard charts in 1970.

Here’s a question: why did it take until the Class of 2018 for the Moody Blues to even get nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? YOU can vote once a day for up to five of the 19 nominees HERE until December 5, 2017!

From Question, written by Justin Hayward:

Why do we never get an answer
When we’re knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war?

‘Cause when we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution
That is burning in its greed

21-P by Phenomenon

ABC-Wednesday  Round 21 ; Letter P

P for Poem

Well here we are and its P already. Todays post is about Poems. What is it about Poems that move us so? Is it the Power of the Poet or is it just the phenomenal use of words? I feel poems right from the ancient ages help shows the culture across the ages and the life back then of the folks from the common to the most uncommon. I have always been Passionate about Poems but I also have a phenomenally weird inclination for the dark side so here is one of mine………..

Vanity Fair

Vanity fair is an everyday circus
Played not only by the rich but common people like us
Always comparing, trying to outdo each other
We keep getting into one muddle or another

Let not your vanity become too cheap
since what you sow so shall you reap
So what exactly is it we fear
There is a place for everyone here

Let go of it and be what you are
Be true to yourself and you will go far
why try being bad at being what you are not
When you can be good with all that you have got

So Pretty Please Post your Posts and we will be right back to it !

 

 

21~O by Daphne

Hey there and good-morning/-afternoon/-evening,

This week I choose to share something else then what I normally do, what are animals.

For this week I choose Orchids.
Orchids come in all different colours and forms.
They are my favorite flower to take photo’s from.
So yeah, I always have a lot of photos.

Fun Fact: In Holland we call them: Orchidee.

Have a lovely ABC Wednesday!
