…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

For 23-V

The last 5 letters of Round 23 are on… time flies… in 5 weeks Round 24 will start, on the first Sunday in the New Year to be exact. 
If you would become part of the team… if you would like to design the new logo… just let us know… We are looking forward to the new round ofcourse and to all your entries. Hope you will stay part of this wonderful meme. 

First the Vulture… which we call “Gier” overhere in The Netherlands.
They are not present in the animalcollection of my hometown zoo but other zoo’s in The Netherlands do have them. This specific one lives in Dierenpark Amersfoort, about 1 & half hour drive from where I live. This photo was taken on july 21rst, the other photo’s of that day can/may be watched HERE

 

My second choice for the animal who’s name starts with a V is the Vampire Bat.
Just a week ago, sunday the 25th, I went to a German Zoo with 2 couples friends, to celebrate my birthday. There we saw those Bats… almost all of my pictures were wrong but one was quit acceptable… so that one I will share with you here:  The other foto’s of that day can/may be watched HERE

 

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

I was musing about VALUE. It’s a word with lots of meanings.

Noun: The regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.
“your support is of great VALUE”
synonyms: worth, usefulness, advantage, benefit, gain, profit, good, help, merit, helpfulness, avail

Noun: A person’s principles or standards of behavior; one’s judgment of what is important in life.
“they internalize their parents’ rules and VALUES”
synonyms: principles, ethics, moral code, morals, standards, code of behavior
“society’s VALUES are passed on to us as children”

Verb: Estimate the monetary worth of (something).
synonyms: evaluate, assess, estimate, appraise, price, put/set a price on
“his estate was VALUED at $345,000”

Verb: Consider (someone or something) to be important or beneficial; have a high opinion of.
“she had come to VALUE her privacy and independence”
synonyms: think highly of, have a high opinion of, hold in high regard, rate highly, esteem, set (great) store by, put stock in, appreciate, respect

It seems to me that the monetary worth definition feels less important than the notions of principles or high regard.

For instance, I VALUE the time I come to ABC Wednesday. I get to read what VALUES you have to to impart. I VALUE your collective wisdom, even though I have no idea about the VALUE of your cars, houses or the like.

ABC Wednesday is more VALUABLE when you comment on other folks’ blogs.
