OK, I have to post about AAPL (the name I know it best by) again, because this baby is going up, up, up. I like Apple, and yes, I realize I am not alone in my 'like'. I have an iPhone, so do each of my 3 sons, as does my hubby, and do we have iPods? Yes we do. Do we have computers? Only 6, all of my children including Sarra, and I have two:) If you are interested in learning about stocks, keep a close eye on AAPL. It's a fun one to watch.

What is a snob?

I have included the definition of snob, for your perusal. In my opinion, it refers most to looking down on others, not so much to appreciating pretty things, whether they come from the handmade community, the store, or the BargainFinder. It is not a nice word to use for someone that you care about, especially when used thusly: '...a total snob' which is: a) a vast generalization, and b) again is not applied correctly to people, but to things. If you have been called a snob, because you like to collect items, utilitarian and not, that are pretty and functional...then I feel badly for you, and I can relate, b/c it has happened to me too.

I have also included the definition for backbite (see below).


a person who imitates, cultivates, or slavishly admires social superiors and is condescending or overbearing to others.
a person who believes himself or herself an expert or connoisseur in a given field and is condescending toward or disdainful of those who hold other opinions or have different tastes regarding this field: a musical snob.


–verb (used with object)
to attack the character or reputation of (a person who is not present).
–verb (used without object)
to speak unfavorably or slanderously of a person who is not present.
