About The Author

Elyse Bruce started Idiomation in January 2010.  The single parent of a child with multiple disabilities including Asperger Syndrome (an Autism Spectrum Disorder), Myasthenia Gravis (an incurable life-threatening neuromuscular autoimmune disease), and a number of minor-in-comparison disabilities, disorders and diagnoses, she started Idiomation to help others to better understand idioms.

Originally intended for those who have difficulties with figurative language, soon history buffs, newspaper hounds, educators and everyday folk began visiting because they, too, were interested not only in the idiom of the day but the history behind the idiom of the day.

A member of the American Federation of Musicians Local 446 (AFM) and SOCAN, Elyse balances her time writing and recording music, writing articles, mastering new technology, teaching songwriting and marketing courses, raising awareness of invisible disabilities by way of her international tourism and culture initiative, Midnight In Chicago, and more.  Elyse also enjoys thinking up new and exciting projects that involve — and benefit — as many people as possible.

Beginning April 1, 2014 entries will be posted on Mondays and Thursdays.

Elyse’s other blog sites are Midnight In Chicago, Elyse Bruce and Missy Barrett’s Adventures.

    Thanks for the great piece on “the buck stops here!” I had recently told the kids that their great, great grandfather, Brigadier General Augustus Bennett Warfield, coined that phrase, but I had no proof. THANK YOU!!!! It was great to google that!

    • You’re very welcome, and I’m glad that you found the “Idiomation: Historically Speaking” entry on the idiom. I’ll bet your kids were thrilled to bits to hear about this. :)
