As you can see, I'm still having trouble maintaining my blog but my intentions are good.
Typing Trivia
4/2/2009 7:10:36 AM

The words ‘’stewardesses” and “reverberated” are the longest words typed with only the left hand. 

The longest words that can be typed using only the right hand in proper typing form are ”lollipop” and “monopoly”. 

The only ten-letter word that you can spell with the top row of letters is “typewriter.” 

“Skepticisms” is the longest word that alternates hands when typing. 

No words can be made from the bottom row, due to lack of vowels. 

The longest word that can be typed without a true vowel is "rhythm." 

The longest word that can be made without typing the same letter twice is "uncopyrightable.” (Yes, it is a word meaning “ineligible for copyright.”)

A personal observation.

I guess I'm not too good at blogging. I'll need to add some content. Stay tuned...

Happy new year.

As someone once told me: "The years are like plane crashes. Any one you can walk away from is a good one." I hope the next year is better than the last one. I believe our new president will help the American people unite in a way that is critical for facing the challenges ahead. Let's hope so. In the mean time I guess we have to keep up the struggle.
