Good Wednesday to all of you, good journal people! I decided that I am going to try and do "Wordplay" every Wednesday. I will make it "Word Wednesday". I am not the best at being counted on for posting, but I am going to try my darndest! Here is today's installment:
What city, town do you live in? Do you know what it is translated from? Do you know why it is named this? What about the state you live in?
My answer: I live in Bellefonte, PA. "Bellefonte" means beautiful fountain or spring in French. I live close to Spring Creek which is very pretty. It is a famous fishing spot. President Carter even fished here =). Our water source comes from Artisian wells and the big spring produces 1.5 million gallons per minute and has been traced to Lake Superior and Lake Erie through dyes. It drains into Chesapeake Bay. Thanks, Roger, for this information! "Pennsylvania" comes from Penn's woods. William Penn made peace treaties with Indians and founded Pennsylvania.
What about your town/city and state?
