Coursing river

Hello LEWWWPers,

Hope you all are doing fine, I missed you so much :D 

Does anyone know what could be the meaning of "Coursing river"?

I was watching Mulan, The greatest japanese cartoon movie, It has a song titled as" I'll make a man out of you".

The actor who is singing the song says " you have to be swift like a coursing river", I didn't know the meaning of it, But, I think it's more like being so quick in doing something :/ 

Here is the link of the…

Trees down!

We made the decision to pay to have three trees on our property taken down. 

The first one was quite close to our garage (as you can see by the newly-sawed off stump just behind the doggie-fence gate, in the above photo).…

Moonflower madness!

I've shared this photo in a previous post.

Shortly after this photo was taken, our moonflower pot looked quite different.

Nearly all of the leaves were completely gone.  They disappeared 'overnight'!

We thought deer must have eaten them, and I was actually a bit concerned…

   Every night, before I switch off the light and lay on the bed to sleep, I read loud this extract which bewitched me. I found myself loving it night by night. I don't know the secret; is it the author? Are theye the words? Is it the message it conveys? I still don't know but I simply fell in love with this text:…

what does your name signify?

Today I saw that Ivan Korjavin changed his profile name. He added a prefix to his name. I was curious about the meaning of that word. In a flash, an idea came to my mind.  So I wanted to post a blog on my wall and requesting our LEWWWPers to comment their name and its meaning.

It might be an interesting topic to make a chain of comments.  The meaning of somebody's name can lead us to…

The first Russian train.

As I mentioned before my town is an industrial town.

There is the metallurgy industry here since 1600 or so.

At that time it was a very hard job. Almost no machines, all works were made by humans.

Because the metallurgy need an iron, and coal, water, and other things and all of…

Cooking workshop

A few weeks ago I visited a fun event — cooking workshop.

The idea of it is simple and pretty clever.

It's almost the same as go to the restaurant, but before your dinner, you work on the kitchen with a chef cooking for yourself.

There are several restrictions for it.

Is calling by people's name bad?

Hello, Dear friends,

I'm writing here to clear a doubt that has been eating my mind so far.

When I first participated in one of our LEWWWP live class, I was hesitated to call the teacher by his/her name. Because, In India, calling people by their name is bad (Especially for the elder people).

If the person is from my relation, I can call them by their relationship. But If I have to call some stranger, I would call him "brother" or "Sir". If it was a woman, then…

Communicating clearly!

Hi Everyone,

Hope you'll are doing good 

It is important to be precise when using the English language. If we are not precise our words can be ambiguous or read in ways that we did not intend.

In order to communicate clearly we need to understand the rules of language. Imagine playing a football match or a game of chess without rules. Just like the rules of a game there are rules to consider when using the English…

Question 4#

I saw two of our team members today, arguing with each other loudly and making everyone busy to death with their boring noises..

Do you think fighting/quarreling at public workplaces is a right decision to make even if you are up in arms or you find it so shameful?!
