    Cool Who would have thought it would be so hard!

    Holy mackerel! Who would have thought that check spelling your website would take so long.
    I definitely don't get an 'A' on grammar.

    I have other talents, I know a couple of magic tricks, I know lots about color and media, I am a great cook and lover, ja, ja, ja...
    But, apparently I suck at grammar...And not for lack of reading.

    I think the keyboard has a problem with the way I play it!
    I can play several instruments, but I have yet to master the keyboard..Lol!

    I wish I could say that someone else did it and I just came and saved the day.
    But that is not who we are, right?

    Anyways!
    Happy Friday everyone!

    Raise a cup of your favorite drink and multiply it by three!
    There's a good equation for ya...

    And now some music!

    Proofreading is extremely tough. Look on the bright side; it's easy (and possible) to correct a web site. Before I retired, my wife and I had a small publishing company. Every time we did a book, we would have multiple people read and edit them. My wife was a scientific technical editor so when she looked at something, she was very careful. Yet, inevitably, we would open up a book as soon as got them from the printer, and find mistakes. And the same mistake was there in thousands of books. Be thankful that you only have one website to fix.

    Thanks for that!
    One can never achieve perfection I suppose.
    We are always going to 'see' medieval battles or Romans marching in movies wearing a casio watch or dropping a cellphone.
    A relief indeed.

    If you are reading out loud it does not matter whether you read "There, their, they're." it all relates to the context. Why should it matter when written ?

    Because it's another example of a lack of education and the continual dumbing down of America. That's why.

    It is sad the number of Americans who are functionally illiterate. Before we moved to Utah, I spent a portion of the last three years in California tutoring an adult who had great difficulty reading. He was a professional in a demanding field, yet he had great difficulty reading or writing reports. Amazingly, with just a bit of coaching, he went from being someone who avoided reading, to someone who spent a great deal of time reading in his free hours. And, he actually got to the point where he could write pretty good reports. I don't take much credit for this, I just provided some direction.

    And, yes, there are important differences between "their, they're, and there."

    I was always insistent on my kids learning to read well in the 70's and 80's.
    They have carried on the tradition with my grandchildren. The oldest (18) was National Honor Society President in her school for 5 years running. The youngest (7) reads at a high school level. It does help that their grandmother is a retired "Gifted and Talented" teacher. Youngest was able to run an I Pad at 4.


    I try my best to type well, but I can only type on my phone with one finger. No thumb typing.

    Spell check is my friend.
    What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?
