A work in progress. Explaining words and phrases that I often use. Noting new and interesting ideas. Discussing certain verbal warning signs. There’s no social justice or political correctness here.

This is a spin-off from Technopagan Yearnings. When that site had it's data scramble, I decided that my lexicon was big and elaborate enough to rate it's own website and subdomain. The new site is now fully relaunched, the version went from 3.76 at the old site to 4.7 here when I had converted all the old entries.

I've written or commented on probably about forty percent of the entries here.

Internal links to other pages are underlined. Uppercase links go to specific entries. Script links go to the timetable.
