    World's Worst Queries And Proposals

    ::Shakes head:: These are all so sad. Some elementary school students have a better command of the language that most of these people.

    Today's Giggle!

    This type of book would send some people out of their minds or over the wall.
  4. "I have come to bury ( ), not to praise him" The parentheses stand for the name of the person. The title is similar to the name I omitted.

    When Misunderstood

    When you have those times of being down about this shabby treatment, reflect on Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. This verse helps me when I am emotionally and mentally down.

    Prayer Request

    William. I just found this. I am truly sorry for your loss. When we lose someone, no matter their age, we feel that loss. We learn that we have to accept it but we will never get over it. Prayers for you and your family.
  7. I looked inside. I liked what I saw. I have to think about when I make this purchase. Thank you for pointing this out to us. I will probably purchase the hardback.

    With Love From The !!!!!!!!!

    Please forgive me, as I differ in opinion about the exclamation point. I learned in a writing group that the exclamation point should be used SPARINGLY. In my last job as a circulation clerk at a small library, the children's director asked me to proofread a letter she was sending out to merchants in that town for the purpose of soliciting donations for a children's winter reading program. She had several exclamation marks throughout the information. When I told her to drop them, she told me she was trying to sound excited. My response was that it didn't sound professional.

    Lat's Talk About Dialog Tags

    I learned to not rely on dialogue tags when I was in a local writing group. Katherine makes a good point about action beats. They make a scene easier to visualize.

    Three Writing Rules To Disregard

    I learned in high school that we should never end a sentence with a preposition. I find this to be hard to do all the time. When I am writing and come to a sentence that seems to end with a preposition, I find myself stopping to think about it, but, when this happens, I go one and do it anyway.

    The Real Reason People Shop Online

    Can you contact the store and relate your efforts about tracking your order to them and see what they tell you? I had to do that last year with two companies. One of the companies contacted me and reduced the price I had paid by refunding me the shipping cost. The issue with the other company was my error.(Sorry to say.)
  13. That is an excellent reason to pray that prayer.

    The Real Reason People Shop Online

    We have to drive across town to our Walmart and even further to Meijer. These stores are too big for us. I walk with a cane and also deal with fibro. I can't find clothes for a woman in my age range there. Last spring, I was looking for a raincoat. I wanted one at least knee length. All I saw were jackets. I wound up ordering one from Amazon. It has a hood and is the length I desired. The only thing I didn't check on was my raincoat does not have pockets. It will last me a long time. When I did my Christmas shopping. I only found one-third of the three things my husband wanted when I went to Walmart. I found another one at a store that God sent me to, one I would not have thought about on my own. I found the last item at Dollar General Store--white 100% cotton men's handkerchiefs. I will monitor my shopping in the brick and mortar stores. Online shopping is not so bad.
