Celebrating autumn with language

Word clouds:


Prose: Autumn is here. Temperatures are falling along with the leaves. Winter clothes, yellow, orange, and brown, are out of storage and the pastel shades of summer disappear for another year.  Cheers for the winning football teams are loud and clear along with the crackling of burning wood in the chimneys. Do you smell the smoke? Do you smell the spiced cider on the stove and the pumpkin brownies in the oven? Isn’t autumn fabulous!

Google iconWhat’s new with Gmail?  Let’s see…ability to save all attachments in your Google Drive, action buttons by your email subject line making it easier to “take action” without even opening the message, ability to hand write your messages using your mouse or trackpad,  new apps icon,  the “look” of Gmail on your iPad, and a new login page.  That’s enough for now, Google!
