During the Roman Republic, nobilis ("noble," plural nobiles) was a descriptive term of social rank, usually indicating that a member of the family had achieved the consulship. Those who belonged to the hereditary patrician families were noble, but plebeians whose ancestors were consuls were also considered nobiles. Since transition to nobilitas thus required the rise of a non-noble individual to the consulship, who was considered a "new man" (novus homo).
Many people are under the mistaken idea that people who develop alcohol problems are the ones show crazy and silly behavior.
It is a more likely case that those who fall into alcohol problems are those people for home alcohol works very well on today’s Young and the restless Nikki Newman had a talk with her grandson Reed Hellström recognizing that a she once used alcohol to her advantage to help her career as a dancer, Reed Hellström is using alcohol to his advantage as a shy person.
He has his first love, his parents are divorcing, he is a sensitive musician, from a powerful family and suffers from shyness. Surprise: alcohol, in the short-term, handles every one of those symptoms perfectly. In the long run, the Chinese aphorism rules: “First the person takes the drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the person” – UNLESS one can have an empathetic wise grandmother, here played as usual to perfection by the fantastic Melody Thomas Scott with newcomer Tristan Lake Leabu as Reed.
The return of Thad Luckinbill as Jeffrey Todd (J.T.) Hellstrom has been a spark for the storyline. This American actor is *far* more experienced, believable, likable yet powerful as compared to when he left the show to take other roles. He’ll leave again, return again. The timing? Who knows?! That is the beauty of a DAILY daytime drama.
Today the show was down-to-earth. “The alcoholic is *not* someone who cannot control their drinking – the alcoholic is someone who *must* control their drinking.” – STANLEY GITLOW, M.D., addiction expert
The phrase “my favorite mistake” in American English simply means- “I failed in an endeavor. However, by failing I was freed up and a much better situation presented itself. ”
Sheryl Crow’s My Favorite Mistake is a brilliant lyric on its own. It reads as well as a poem as a song. Good fun drama.
The song is fantastic, as the bass line sounds like classic Rolling Stones or Tho Who or The Pretenders. That said, the lyric in the song,
Young and the Restless has gotten crisp and brilliant. The writing has improved so much over the past 12 years I stand and applaud adjusting to social situations of extreme sensitivity with equanimity.
“Don’t you know when you go
It’s the perfect ending,
To the bad day,
I’d gotten used to spending.
Don’t you know,
When you go you’re my favorite mistake.”
That high level of sardonic conversation was reflected perfectly as character Jack Abbott and Nikki Newman on season 46, episode 74.
