TODAY’S WORD is cobble. Example: “The Virginia General Assembly met in special session in 1956 to cobble together a package of legislation to put Massive Resistance into effect.” (Source of this and sentence below, “Justified by her Children” by former Christ Episcopal Church rector Roy G. Pollina)
SUNDAY’S WORD was sanguine. It means optimistic or positive, especially in an apparently bad or difficult situation. Example: “In a sanguine tone, he began by congratulating Sutton and the Christ Church youth for having an interest in the current events of the church and society.”
MHC Dances for Their Cause
OK, TwinkleToes — watch out! The newest team in MHC Dances for Their Cause will be RaShawn “Dance Machine” Harper. If you are a local theatergoer, you’ve probably seen him dancing on stage. He has been in several shows.
In the competition, people vote on dance videos by clicking “like” on social media. Each team has a charity to support and a sponsor that will pay $1 for each “like” earned.
Teams submit 30-to-45-second videos of themselves dancing each week for a month, starting Sunday. There’s still plenty of time to get on board.
Each Tuesday, the videos will be posted on the YMCA’s website and Facebook page for people to vote on.
To get involved or for more information, visit the Facebook page “MHC Dances for their Cause,” or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

SUNDAY’S TRIVIA ANSWER: The word “vandalize” comes from the name of a Germanic tribe, the Vandals, who, along with the Goths and the Visigoths, in the third to fifth centuries AD ransacked areas that Rome had taken over as part of the Roman Empire. The Vandals were from what now is southern Poland.
TODAY’S TRIVIA QUESTION: When did the Goths and the Vandals sack and plunder Rome?
