Earworms and Latin Verbs

Late night playing about with words (as you do...):

Confidence - Definition


  1. The feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust: "we had every confidence in the staff".
  2. The state of feeling certain about the truth of something.

trust - faith - reliance - belief - credit - credence
Confidere - to trust

et le voila - I Have Confidence!   or - put another way - Don't Panic! 


  1. Aha! Yes, "I have confidence" made me think of Sound of Music - hoped that was the link.

  2. It just seemed appropriate, even if I'm hardly Julie Andrews!


Welcome to my blog. I always love receiving comments; do feel free. If you're visiting from the A-Z challenge (or even if you're not!) could I thank you for your patience in using the dreaded captcha verification thingy. It's a pain, I know, but I've had problems with spam in the past and would rather keep Greenpatches as a junk-free zone.
