Wednesday's learn and earn...


gasconade • \gas-kuh-NAYD\ • noun
: bravado or exaggerated boasting

Example Sentence: "Honesty and frankness do more for the public's confidence … than extravagant boasting or supercilious gasconade." (F. Gonzalez-Crussi, The New York Times, April 7, 2002)

Did you know? The citizens of Gascony in southwestern France have proverbially been regarded as prone to bragging. Their reputation has been immortalized in such swashbuckling literary works as Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers and Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac. Linguistically, the legend survives in the word "gascon," meaning "braggart," as well as in "gasconade" itself.


Today I have a little different rebate offer, it's from ConAgra Foods. When you buy $10 worth of participating ConAgra foods products they will send you $25.00 worth of coupons. The purchases need to be made between 5/06/2010 and 08/15/2010. ConAgra products included in the rebate are Healthy Choice, Kid Cuisine, Egg Beaters, Hunts Manwich, Chef Boyardee, Peter Pan Peanut Butter, Snack Pack pudding, Marie Callender's, Pam , Fleischman's Van Camp's, Hunts Tomato Ketchup, Reddi Wip and Hebrew National Hot Dogs. You will need to mail in your original dated receipt with the participating items and their prices circled together with the rebate form postmarked before 8/30/2010.

I hope everyone is having a good week.

  1. I have never done a rebate before. Do you do them often? This is a great deal especially for large families that use a lot of this stuff!


I love to read your comments, but due to spamming I have had to turn on the word verification again. Sorry for the extra step.
