While away your time until the next Bee

I subscribe to the Visual Thesaurus on line, and was interested to see an article about a new website called lexicalist.  Check it out--it tells you what words are in vogue in various parts of the country.  I searched "Spelling Bee" and was dismayed to see that Massachusetts' use of the term was only #36 in the nation.

The site gives you breakout on words used by gender, age, location, and change in frequency.  It is going to be fun to explore in greater depth....after I mow the yard.
