Today’s question is: “Are you always careful when you Homologate?” Perhaps I may even have to ask, whether you ever, even if only rarely, homologate, at all? Yes! Do you approve and / or, affirm those you associate with?
For that is what the Word of the Day for Sunday, August 28, 2011. (Homologate = huh-MOL-uh-geyt), means in its main sense:
1. To approve; confirm or ratify.
2. To register (a specific make of automobile in general production) so as to make it eligible for international racing competition.
Again just looking at the first meaning of homologate, it means to approve, and confirm etc. Which are good things when done the right way and if so, usually strengthens and builds up those we in fact homologate, doesn’t it? But sometimes we can approve or confirm something or someone, in such a way, that while in one sense it gives approval and confirmation to their work, it doesn’t always affirm or approve them personally, does it? And then, there are other times when we don’t homologate at all, even when we know we should, do we? So I would just like to encourage you today, to give approval and confirmation whenever and where ever it is due, even if it is not your normal habit
Perhaps, if I could be so humble here, to even ask, what is your normal habit in regard to homologation? Yes! Is it our/your regular habit to homologate and build up? Or just to denigrate and tear down?
Again I will leave that with you for now for further reflection later.
