Janis Krumins's "Rhyme Desk"
A Latvian named Janis Krumins contacted me a couple of days ago with a request:
Hi Horace,Not a good start since I try to make clear that I go by "Jeffery." Anyway:
My name is Janis.I wasn't sure if that name were male or female, but the site linked to above says male, assuming that's the right site. Here's what he wrote by way of introduction:
I've visited your "Gypsy Scholar" blog today and I really like it. Lots of curious articles about religions and geopolitics. Not that I agree with all of it but still interesting and informative. I highly recommend BBC documentary film "Power of Nightmares" on the topic of raise of radical Islam.Thanks for the recommendation . . . though I have little time for watching programs. I prefer the efficiency of transcripts.
Though you won't like it, if you are a republican:)As I see from the smilely face, that's a joke (though the "r" should be "R"). But seriously, folks, I make no assumptions about people's political leanings determining their response to my posts. One must sift truth from falsehood everywhere. Think for oneself. Complete disclosure: in my home state registry (Arkansas), I'm officially Democrat . . .
Back to the original topic I wanted to start with - I run a site with rhyming dictionary and other useful tools for writers. Here is link.Looks interesting.
If you have a spare minute, please, check it out. Comments and suggestions for improvement would be most welcome!Looks perfect to me . . . except the rhyming dictionary found no rhyme for "orange"! Hence also nothing for "orange juice"! Aren't you supposed to be working on that oversight?
Also I was wondering, if you would consider adding it to your list of online reference works.By "it," you mean your "rhyming dictionary"? Sure! Happy to! Check my blogroll (right-hand margin of this blog).
Many thanks and please keep up the good work!I'll try . . .
