Expressions starting with the letter "A"

There are thousands of expressions in the English language. In the new Kal’s Korner Online Web site, our objective is to eventually include ALL known expressions. Presently, we have finished everything we know of for the letter "A". We are now working on populating the letter "B".

MY expressions starting with the letter "A"

Against the grain. Al fresco. American as apple pie. Am I talking to a brick wall. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. An apple never falls far from the tree. An axe to grind. Ants in his pants. The apple of his eye. As clear as mud. As cold as ice. As common as dirt. As delicate as a flower. As fresh as a daisy. Ashes to ashes dust to dust. As hot as hell. As poor as dirt. As sensitive as a flower. As slow as molasses. As welcome as a skunk at a lawn party. As white as snow. At the bottom of the pecking order. At the crack of dawn.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "B"

Beat around the bush. Beat it into the ground. Beauty is a fading flower. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Bed out. Bee in her bonnet. Being led down the garden path. The best thing since little apples. The best thing since sliced bread. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Betting the farm.  Between a rock and a hard place. Beware of snap dragons. Big as life. A bird in the hand is messy. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.  Bite the dust. Bit off more than you can chew. Blame it on the rain. Bless my bloomers. Bless my weeds. Blood is thicker than water. Bloom where you are planted. Blow hot and cold. A bottomless pit. Bowels of the earth. Break new ground. Bring on the sun. Bright as a full moon. Broad daylight. Brought down to earth. Brown as a berry. Busy as a bee. Buy the farm

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "C"

Can't tell his ass from a hole in the ground. Can't tell his ass from his elbow. Can't see the forest for the trees. Can't see the wood for the trees. A carrot on a stick. The cat's meow. Caught between a rock and a hard place. Charm the birds out of trees. A chip off the old block. A chip on his shoulder. Closing the barn door after the horse escapes. Cold feet. Cold hands warm heart. Come down to earth. Come hell or high water. Common ground. Comparing apples to oranges. Cool as a cucumber. Cover a lot of ground. The cream of the crop. Crows are black everywhere. Crying buckets. Cut and dried. Cut the ground out from under him.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "D"

Dead of winter. Dig up dirt on him. Dig yourself into a hole. Digging a hole for yourself. Dishing the dirt. Dirt cheap. Do I look like a turnip that just fell off the turnip truck. Don't bite the hand that feeds you. Don't count your chickens before they hatch. Don't have a cow. Don't guild the lily. Don't let any grass grow under your feet. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Don't make a mountain out of a molehill. Don't make waves. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Don't put the cart before the horse. Don't shit on your own doorstep. Don't that just butter your grits. Don't upset the apple cart. Don't use a lot where a little will do. Don't want to cover old ground. Down to earth. Drier than a burnt bush. Drive it into the ground. A drop in the bucket. Dropped like a hot potato. Dry as a bone. Dumb as a stump. Dumber than a bucket of rocks.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "E"

Earth shattering. Easy as falling off a log. Eat dirt. Either you sink or you swim. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn sometimes. East my dust. Every cloud has a silver lining. Every dog has his day. Every garden may have some weeds. Every path has its puddle. Every rose has its thorn. Every stick has two ends. Everything's coming up roses.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "F"

Fall on stony ground. Fat as a hog. Fat as a cow. A feast for the eyes. A feast for sore eyes. Feeling swamped. Feet of clay. Fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. Fertile ground. Flat as a pancake. A flood of tears. The flower of one's youth. Flowers are God's way of smiling. For everything there is a season. For the birds. For want of a nail the shoe was lost. A fountain of energy. Free as a bird. Fresh as a daisy. From feast to famine. From small beginnings come great things. Full of piss and vinegar. Funny farm (Hi Captain Cook!). ;-D

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "G"

Gain ground. Gardeners know the best dirt. Garlic is as good as ten mothers. Get hold of the wrong end of the stick. Get your feet on the ground. Get your feet wet. Give a little, take a little. Give and take. Give ground. Go climb a tree. Go with the flow. Gone to pot. Gone to seed. Go out on a limb. Go with the flow. A good rule of thumb. Good fences make good neighbors. The grass is always greener on the other side. The gravy train. Great oaks from little acorns grow. Green with envy. Grow like a weed. Grow your own dope, plant a man. Gut reaction.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "H"

Handy as a pocket on a shirt. Happy as a duck in water. Hard as a rock. Have a ripple effect. Have both feet on the ground. Haven't got a row to hoe. Have your ear to the ground. Heard it through the grapevine. 'Heaven on earth. He had something to crow about. He has his head in the clouds. He left no stone unturned. Here's mud in your eye. He's a chicken. He's a little wet behind the ears. He's a stick in the mud. He's a fruit (Hi Captain Cook ;-D). He's feeling his oats. He's pushing up the daisies. He's sowing his wild oats. He who sows virtue reaps fame. Hit pay dirt. Hold out the olive branch. Home is home, be it ever so humble. Home is where the heart is. Horse sense. Hot as Hell.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "I,J,K"

I have an axe to grind. If dumb were dirt, he would be about an acre. If friends were flowers, I'd pick you. If it ain't broke don't fix it. If it's not one thing it's another. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, it must be a duck. If you plant it they will come. In deep shit. In deep water. Indian summer. I never promised you a rose garden. In the doghouse. It beats picking cotton. It's a dog eat dog world. It's better to bend than to break. It's chicken feed. ..... Juicy as watermelon. Just a drop in the bucket. Just fell off the turnip truck. Just taking it one day at a time.  ....... Keep you head above water. Knock on wood.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "L"

The last rose of summer. The last straw. Led down the garden path. Let sleeping dogs lie. Let them eat cake. Lie down with dogs and wake up with fleas. Life is a bowl of cherries. Like a duck out of water. Like looking for a needle in a haystack. Like there's no tomorrow. Little strokes fell great oaks. iving off the fat of the land. "Looking as like... as one pea does like another."  - Rabelais....  Loose as a goose.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "M,N"

Makes your mouth water. Making ends meet. Measure twice, cut once. More than you can shake a stick at. My blood ran cold. My old stomping ground. ..... Naked as a jaybird. Nip it in the bud. No spring chicken. No use in flogging a dead horse. Not for all the tea in China. Not my cup of tea. Not worth a hill of beans. No use crying over spilt milk. Nutty as a fruitcake (Hi Captain Cook ;-D).

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "O"

Old as dirt. Once in a blue moon. One flower does not bring spring. One flower does not make a garland. One rotten  apple spoils the whole barrel. One swallow does not make a summer. Onions treat seven ailments. Only the strong survive. Open up a can of worms. Our neck of the woods. Out with the old, in with the new.  [flow2.gif (27433 bytes)]

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "P,R"

Pin a rose on your nose. A place in the sun. Plain as water. Plant kindness and gather love. Play a harp before a cow. Put off the scent. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Putting it in a nutshell. Putting the cart before the horse. Put to bed with a shovel. ....... Raking in the dough. Raking it in. Rise and shine. A rolling stone gathers no moss. Root it out. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. A rose is a rose is a rose. Rough as a cob. Run to seed.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "S"

Salt of the Earth. Save it for a rainy day. Scraping the bottom of the barrel. The scum of the earth (Hi Captain Cook ;-D). The scythe ran into a stone. Seed money. Shake like a leaf. The sharper is the berry, the sweeter is the wine. She has a green thumb. She's the apple of my eye. Shit end of the stick. Shit happens. Shiver me timber. The shoes on the other foot now. Sick as a dog. Sitting on the fence. Slow as molasses in January. So hungry I could eat a horse. Sour as a green apple. Speak softly and carry a big stick. Spill the beans. Spring to mind. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Stand your ground. A stick in the mud. Still waters run deep. Stir up an ant's nest. Stone cold sober.

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "S,T"

Stop and smell the roses. Stop, look and listen. Strong as an ox. The stronger the breeze the stronger the trees. Stubborn as a mule. Stuck in a rut. Sturdy as an oak. Survival of the fittest. Sweet as apple pie. .. Take time to smell the roses.That's a whole new can of worms. That's water under the bridge. There's no time like the present. They're like two peas in a pod. Thick as a brick (Hi Captain Cook ;-D). This is for the birds. A thorn in my side (HiCaptain Cook ;-D). Through the grapevine. Throw pearls before swine. Till the cows come home. Timber! Timing is everything. To gild refined gold, to paint the lily. To live from hand to mouth. Too little too late. Tools of the trade. Top of the morning. A tree does not move unless there is wind. Turn over a new leaf. Two peas in a pod.

Calgary? Děkuji vám, já se ale Calgary vyhýbám, protože jsem někde slyšel že je tam hodně červených krků. ;-D A při té Calgary Stampede je to prý ještě horší. .... Kovbojské  písně se mi ale docela líbí. :-)

Re: MY expressions starting with the letter "U,W,Y"

Under the weather. Useless as tits on bull. .. Waking up with the chickens. Walking on cloud nine. Walking on thin ice. Walking on water. Want my place in the sun. Water under the bridge. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. A weed is no more than a flower in disguise. We hung them out to dry. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. What goes up must come down. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. When it rains it pours. When pigs fly. When the cows come home. Wet behind the ears. Wrinkled as a prune. ... You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. You can't squeeze blood out of a turnip. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. You feel like a fish out of water. You have to separate the chaff from the wheat. You never miss the water till the well runs dry. Your ass is grass. Your barking up the wrong tree. Your name is mud. You reap what you sow.

captain cook

and thus drew = a takto sestavit/táhnout????

1) "drew" je minuly cas slovesa "to draw"

 tahnout = "to draw"

 V danem propade  "Kennedy thus drew" se nejlepe prelozi jako "Kennedy tak tezil" ze sve valecne zkusenosti. Rozhodne nic nesestavil a rici, ze tahnul ze sve valecne zkusenosti je hodne tezkopadny preklad.

Handling English articles

Library catalogues of English books ignore "A" and "THE". Thus "A Tale of Two Cities" is filed under "T" and "The African Queen" under "A" You might want to consider doing the same. 

File "A rolling stone gathers no moss" under "R" and "A bird in the hand is worh two in the bush" under "B" or your A list will never end.
