    You know that's damened good advice, (I would expect nothing less from you)but I know that one day, you're gonna get all worked up and your head is going to explode right off of your shoulders, and I just want to see the last part of your post when that moment comes to fruition!

    Like Arnold though, you'll just be back!

    Personally, I don't use those little things in part because you can't get enough things right.

    We leased part of the building out to Esperanza - she cut hair and did color, and I think nails.

    I wonder if she was related. Hope so.

    I'm a retired school teacher. It was my JOB to correct incorrect grammar. Old habits die hard.

    AND......how someone talks is absolutely no indicator of intelligence!
    Many years ago, a university did a survey-like study of people's impressions of recordings of three different voice accents, and then asked the questionees their opinions of the brains behind those anonymous voices. They used a college professor from the deep American south, a college professor from an Ivy League school, and a London (England) cab driver. By overwhelming numbers, the cab driver was ranked as best educated and most intelligent, with the Ivy League and southerner professors in places two and three.
    This is not to imply the cab driver WASN'T intelligent, but he certainly wasn't a PhD..... ;)

    Uh - the definitions of the words Education & Intelligence do mean the same thing … right ?
