Something My Mother Taught Me.

One thing my mother impressed upon me was the importance of language. Intellegent people knew words and how to use them. Intellegent people did NOT use profanity and intellegent people will respect you if you can converse with them on their level.

 

My mother was a life long scholar.

In my self imposed study to be the best Notary Public possible I ran across a word I had never heard before, Consanguinity. I had to go to YouTube just to figure out how to properly pronounce consanguinity. I could not figure out the pronunciation from the phonetic spelling. Once I heard the word I had to write it out as Con-Sang-Gwin-ity. So here is the Notary explanation and Wikki's as well.

NOTARY. Consanguinity. This term refers to relationships between people by blood, being family members. Some states prohibit notaries by statute from notarizing for their spouse, or for their parents and children, or for all three groups. A few states prohibit notaries from notarizing for any person to whom they are directly related. Prohibitions against notarizing for these groups are based on the premise that such acts present conflicts of interest for the notary.

Wikki: Consanguinity, the fact of being descended from the same ancestor.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson my mom was a very wise person. She went to college much of her adult life just to learn. I don't believe she ever went for a degree... just schooling.

It's really easy to tell that you and Ron were highly educated (in a GREAT way) from the moment we met you Ron and Alexandra Seigel .

I love learning the English language Sheila Anderson and it's fun to share a word we just might run into while executing legal documents. I have not seen this one on ant RE doc's but you never know.

Morning Bob.

I'm fond of finding words that most people have not heard of.  This is a new one on me, thanks.

I did learn from her John Pusa and because of her I continue to learn every day.

James Dray it's a treat fo me to know I found a new one for you .

On the other side of things Kathy Streib my mom was such a stickler about spelling she destroyed my love of writing for many years. It wasn't until she passed on that I resumed my writing for enjoyment.
