K is for.......



The ABC Team welcome you to another week on the adventure we all love and adore!



Did you know the superpowers Superman possesses?





Strength - although varying depending on his energy levels, Clark is among the strongest superheroes on Earth, capable of lifting a plane.

Flight - able to defy gravity, possibly through sheer force of will.

Invulnerability - Years of exposure to yellow solar energy have caused Clark's Kryptonian body to become almost indestructable. His natural bio-electric aura also has limited force field properties protecting items near his skin e.g. his costume. Clark can survive in outer space as long as he has a breathing apparatus, and doesn't lose too much solar energy. Using his powers of flight and super-speed Clark can travel inter-planetary distances by himself. Interstellar distances require assistance e.g. a spaceship.

Super-speed - capable of superhuman speed, Clark can fly from Metropolis to have dinner with Lois Lane in Paris, France, or in a few minutes fly to the Moon.

Super-breath - Clark's invulnerability and strength exist internally too, affecting his skeleton and internal organs. After inhaling deeply he can expel the air in a gale-force wind.

Super-hearing - Capable of blocking out and discerning a single known voice within a city.

Vision - Clark can detect electromagnetic energy in more than the normal visible spectrum: X-Ray vision, IR vision, Microscopic, and Telescopic. Additionally, Clark can release solar energy in the form of Heat Vision as a weapon.

Which superpower would you choose?

J is for Jump In

Are you sitting comfortably?  Log in, click on and JUMP to the ABC Wednesday link.  Don't JUMP the gun by trying to post on Mondays because there is no-one here -  not even Mrs Nesbitt's chickens.  No need to JOCKEY for position now the Linky is open, there is room for all to JOIN. The more the merrier, JUMP at the offer. JUMP bail if need be, although that may mean JUMPING from the frying-pan into the fire, or am I JUMPING to a conclusion there.

Well its time for the ABC JAMBOREE which may be JAUNTY, JAZZY, JUDICIOUS or a JOURNEY but never JADED.  I'll stop my JABBERING now its time to JOIN in.  Once we are all here the JOINT will be JUMPING and everyone on ABC Wednesday will be
     
JUMPING with JOY

I is for Irreverent

I IDEALIZE the I post, because IT IMPLIES an INFINITE array of IMPECCABLE IMAGES, INTELLIGENT and INSPIRATIONAL IDEAS of INCREDIBLE INTEREST and INFORMATION.

IT would be ILLOGICAL AND INCONCEIVABLE, even INANE, to INSIST on INFLICTING an IDENTICAL ITINERARY.

IT IS INFINITELY more IRRESISTIBLE to INSPECT whatever IDIOSYNCRATIC IMAGINATION IS ILLUMINATED.

INVARIABLY, one could INFUSE with IRRATIONAL IRE, but that would be INSTANTLY INCONCEIVABLE.

The letter "H " for 'olly 'ock


 This is a 'olly' ock!


It's the turn of the letter H.
 A strange letter, for there are thousands of people in the world who cannot or just do not pronounce this letter. In my country one of our twelve provinces is populated with inhabitants who cannot pronounce the H. It's the province of Zeeland.

In France the H is also  dropped for most of the time.

In the Holy Land the people of Galilee couldn't pronounce the H either, that's why Peter was recognized as one of the disciples of  Jesus in the night that Jesus was interrogated by the Sanhedrin.

And then of course in London we know the cockneys who drop aitches all the time. Who doesn't know the famous sentence spoken by Eliza Doolittle, who tries to copy the pronunciation of Professor Higgens. He asks her to pronounce :"In Hertford,Hereford and Hampshire hurricanes hardly ever happen...
Eliza answers:"In' ertford, 'ereford and 'ampshire  'urricanes 'ardly ever 'appen...
Anyway we are going to show a great variety of the letter "H"! 'opefully you 'ave great 'istories for us.
Reader Wil, ABC Team.
