The boulder is off Route 17 at 906 Orange Turnpike Monroe, NY just before Arrow Park Rd. You can see the cliff from Bing.com. The Property appears to be owned by the Palisades Park Commission.

Well, it is not really chipping, its something else that involves a drill and a chisel. What would you call it? I call it Cipping.

BTW, when you go to Bing.com you need to go to Maps, and then click on Birds-Eye-View. Then you can see the cliff.

How about carving, sculpting, defacing or some other recognizable gerund?

Did you ever see hand holds being made with a drill before? Who does that?

Donald, for some reason you find yourself the object of virulent hatred on this board, and I've always wondered why. I think your posts are extremely entertaining, if not necessarily constructive or helpful.

You write this, and then pass it off as a spelling error??

I've never seen unintended spelling errors explained quite so thoroughly as this. I'm calling BS on your second explanation.

Question - which transgression causes you to lose face in this forum, careless typing, or lying to us?

Sorry

Re: Cipping Near Harriman - 10/18/13 06:56 PM

I would have to say that I agree with you RR. I always enjoy Donald's post.


Donald, no need to apologize. In fact, I think most people owe you an apology.

I was curious so I went looking...

About 75 people logged in the past week. 1/3rd of them may be spambots with groups of them signed up the same day and all with 0-2 posts...

Still, more people checking in than I was expecting.

You're right.
Donald, I'm sorry you're such an ass sometimes.

Re: Cipping Near Harriman - 10/18/13 09:15 PM

I'm sorry you're such an ass sometimes.

"Sometimes."
Retroscree, you're much more consistent in that regard.

Donald, no need to apologize. In fact, I think most people owe you an apology.
From the Online Etymology Dictionary:

apology (n.)
15c., "defense, justification," from Late Latin apologia, from Greek apologia "a speech in defense," from apologeisthai "to speak in one's defense," from apologos "an account, story," from apo- "from, off" (see apo-) + logos "speech" (see lecture (n.)).

The original English sense of "self-justification" yielded a meaning "frank expression of regret for wrong done," first recorded 1590s, but this was not the main sense until 18c. The old sense tends to emerge in Latin form apologia (first attested in English 1784), especially since J.H. Newman's "Apologia pro Vita Sua" (1864).


The latter definition is taken as the standard one today. But don't you think the former is apropos to this thread? A poster may well owe us an explanation.

Does it mean that he's an ass sometimes or that I'm sorry only sometimes?

My grandma always used to say, when all you have is lemons, make lemonade.

Re: Cipping Near Harriman - 10/20/13 10:18 AM

Pray tell DP, what does that explain?
Posted by: donald perry

Re: Cipping Near Harriman - 10/20/13 02:58 PM

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade" is a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune. "Lemons" in this expression is used in the informal sense of the word, to indicate an unfortunate or inadequate situation, a meaning which probably stems from the sour and acidic taste of unsweetened lemon. "Lemonade" on the other hand, is a sweetened form of this same acerbic fruit, and so in the context of this expression, conveys the potential for pleasure and opportunity in seemingly bad situations.

You never know, perhaps when you misspell a word this could be an opportunity for a new word, a new idea, a new concept?

You're not that deep a thinker.
And please stop lying. It's unbecoming.
It wasn't a typo. You tried to coin a new word in your original post. You said as much. Epic fail.

Well, that explains that. Try putting cipping into your favorite search engine and you'll get quite a few results (ignore corrections.) So the word isn't brand new but miles away from the original subject. My hat's off to you, so to speak, if you can make lemonade out of that.
