Random Speculation

spec·u·la·tion [spek-yuh-ley-shuhn] 


1. the contemplation or consideration of some subject: to engage in speculation on humanity's ultimate destiny.

2. a single instance or process of consideration.

3. a conclusion or opinion reached by such contemplation: These speculations are impossible to verify.

4. conjectural consideration of a matter; conjecture or surmise: a report based on speculation rather than facts.

5. engagement in business transactions involving considerable risk but offering the chance of large gains, especially trading in commodities, stocks, etc., in the hope of profit from changes in the market price.

For your listening enjoyment. Colin Hay is the man behind the 80's band Men at Work...he still is at work. Love anything sung by him.

In lay person definition, I think speculate means to
chew over, think over, reflect, ruminate, contemplate, cerebrate, cogitate.....We speculate daily without even knowing we do it.

Will it rain?
What should I wear to work?
What to make for dinner?
What color to paint that wall above the fireplace?
Is it okay to blog about ____?
Which to buy?

I ruminate over much more important things than written above, but those are not for the blog. :)
Another perfect tune for your Tuesday morning.

Have to go, my brother Vince just stopped by. We are discussing his outfit changes for his high school senior photos next week. I also need to hear more about his upcoming faster motorcycle purchase. I am a big sister cub...need to talk him out of this.
Faster is NOT better.

I can't even talk about this....
