My cohost Carla Ives AKA Ethel the Editor, asked a question on her blog today. Thought I'd ask you all as well. If you were old enough like me (or if you studied this period in history), what were the first words spoken on the moon? You can answer by posting here or go to her blog and answer there. Also Carla has some interesting news on a new Pro Life ad coming out. Go check it out!

I Love Language
By Lucy Linguist and Ethel the Editor
Lucy and Ethel loved language and so
they decided to teach on a humorous show
how to say what you mean and mean what you say
and edit your words in an eloquent way!
Good communication: bless those around you
and a word aptly written never fails too

and learn what great language lovers we are!
Join Lucy and Ethel each Thursday morning
For “I Love Language” and gracious warnings
Then you can say as success builds in thee
I love language and now it loves me!

If you've listened in to Grace Talk Soup in the last few weeks, you'll know that my co host, editor and dear friend, Carla Ives, is going through a tough time right now. Her husband was diagnosed with cancer and it's already been a long haul for her family. Ray, just went in for a proceedure that will tell them how far the cancer has spread and then they will be deciding on a treatment. Carla has a fabulous sense of humor and a very active imagination.
