Blogging from A to Z April Challenge - B #atozchallenge



It is Day 2 of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. Here are my three topics for the day.



Brontophobia - persistent fear of thunder.

Best skincare products - Health magazine's editors and a team of pros put together a list of their favorite skincare products. You can view these items, including cost and where to purchase by clicking on this link.

Battle of the Bulge - A major German offensive that took place on December 16, 1944 with the objective of splitting the Allied armies with a surprise blitzkrieg through the Ardennes to Antwerp. General Dwight D. Eisenhower rushed in reinforcements. Lieutenant General George S. Patton amazingly turned his Third U.S. Army to the north and counterattacked the German flank. American troops fought through January to restore the front. Hitler would never be able to launch such an offensive again. But it was at a great cost. The United States Army suffered 100,000 casualties. For more information on this WWII battle, please visit http://www.army.mil/botb/overview.html

When I was a child I had severe brontophobia. I didn't even know - until right now - that it had a name. I took it to such an extreme I ran from lightning bugs screaming "Thunder, thunder!" I know, pretty darned pitiful!

Thank you for visiting my blog today about the Bold Writer. It is perfectly fine you started with "Do Re Mi"... the Sound of Music is my favorite movie. Loved to hear the connection!

Happy A to Zing!

My grandfather survived the Battle of the Bulge. Many brave men did not.

Some day soon I need to spend some money on myself and get some good skin care products.

Thanks for the new word today too!

You would think that would be a persistent fear of dinosaurs.

Cheryl said...

Thanks for the comments, Ava and Patty. I appreciate your grandfather's service, Ava. My dad is a former Marine from the 60s. Patty, you're too funny.

I had no idea there was a name for fear of thunder, but I'm not surprised--so many people seem to have it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
