Spur - of the moment


"[Omnitrax is] trying to increase its bargaining position and maybe even get out of its responsibilities to maintain the line in good working order or, failing that, to be compensated for any damages that might be awarded against it in the domestic courts," Sinclair said.

Old English spura, spora (related to spurnan "to kick," see spurn ), from Proto-Germanic *spuron (cf. Old Norse spori , Middle Dutch spore , Dutch spoor , Old High German sporo , German Sporn "spur"), from PIE *spere- "ankle" (see spurn ).

Generalized sense of "anything that urges on, stimulus," is from late 14c. Meaning "a ridge projecting off a mountain mass" is recorded from 1650s. "Widely extended senses ... are characteristic of a horsey race." [Weekley] Expression on the spur of the moment (1801) preserves archaic phrase on the spur "in great haste" (1520s). To win one's spurs is to gain knighthood by some valorous act, gilded spurs being the distinctive mark of a knight.

When I entered my third year of university, I was enrolled in classes for Church History and Contemporary Theology (more accurately, 19th-21st Century Theologians). In Church History, the professor mentioned the Eastern Church in passing and in a fairly negative light. In a Protestant setting, this is fairly unsurprising, and I did not think twice about it; that is, until reading about Orthodox theology in Contemporary Theology. Again, this was only a brief treatment, but my theology professor was considerably more irenic and knowledgeable in his discussion of the text we were considering. We were assigned two brief readings; one of Bulgakov and another of Florovsky. I was amazed by what I read; particularly so by Florovsky’s writing on the Catholicity of the Church. I had heard about church unity ad nauseum, particularly in school, but this reading was different. I had heard time and again about the need for Christian unity, but it had always sounded hollow to me.

Since the very concept of unpremeditated, spur-of-the-moment inspiration without studied care is at the heart of Romantic artistic theory , it did not take long before the first generation of Romantic composers took up the idea. Others were:

Want to escape to a relaxing place that you’ll always remember? Then take a trip out to one of the finest dude ranches in Bandera, Texas: The Silver Spur Guest ranch. This historic ranch is the perfect place to trade your tie for a red bandana, your skirt for blue jeans, and your worries for the peace of a western sunset. Relax, have fun, make memories, and enjoy your surroundings.

Speaking to PEOPLE after Gentry’s death , music journalist and author Holly Gleason said of the star, “Nobody loved life more than Troy Gentry. Whatever adventure, all night party or hardcore hillbilly song, he was up for it.”

Gentry was born on April 5, 1967, in Lexington, Kentucky, where he met his bandmate and formed a group based off their last names. The duo had success on the country charts, scoring five No. 1 hits. The band was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2008.
