It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

This is the story of Fatima Al-Fihiri (800–880 CE). #BadassWoman #twitterstorians

2. Daughter of a wealthy businessman, the family moved from Tunisia to Fez, Morocco during the rule of King Idriss II. When both her husband and father died, Fatima and her sister inherited a fortune.

They chose to spend their inheritance on building educational institutions.
3. In 859, Fatima built the Al-Qayrawan #Mosque, decorated in the Andalusian style with Kufic calligraphy (early style) engraved throughout. At 3,000 sq ft, it can fit 22,000 people.

She stacked it with Islamic works (Qur’ans, #Hadith collections, etc).

Know the Difference between BEEN and BEING

The verb 'be' has eight forms: am, is, are, was, were, be, being, been. Among these forms, BEEN and BEING mostly suffer a cruel misuse by users of the English language.

#EnglishLanguage #Grammar #Verbs #DgreatTutor
But these two are different in form and function.

1. Difference in FORM
When BEING is used, it is preceded by any of ‘am’, ‘is’ ‘are’, ‘was’, ‘were’ and succeeded by the past participle of the verb (EATEN & SPOKEN are the past participle forms of EAT and SPEAK)

#DgreatTutor
eg.,
The food IS BEING EATEN by Tola
I AM BEING punished by Mr. Tere

When BEEN is used, it is preceded by any of ‘has’, ‘have’ or ‘had’ and succeeded by the past participle of the verb.
eg.,
The food HAS BEEN EATEN by Tola
I HAVE BEEN PUNISHED by Mr. Tere
