One thing I really like about working with people is the conversations we have. Living in the countryside I can go days without speaking to anyone other than immediate family. I think that's why I write and compose blogs and comment on my favourite blogs that I follow.
I was talking to someone when I was working the other day. He remarked that he couldn't understand why when people refer to the famine in Ireland it's called the Great Famine. He said there was nothing great about it. I agreed and said that the first world war is often called the great war.
I thought this might be a 'great" topic for a blog post. So I looked up other examples of when great is used:
Great Wall of China.
Catherine the Great.
Arthur Ashe was a tennis great.
I am sure you have examples of the word great?
Do you remember Bullseye? "How you doing, smashing, great!"
