Please do post again and often, your comment was just something to start
conversation, a good conversation. I hope no one takes offense. I myself
learned about prepositions and some of the history of rules of language
usage. I too am a very poor speller (spell check helps me) so my sixth graders
kept a close eye on everything I put up in class. They were very helpful and
understanding. Mistakes are how we learn so lets be patient with the goofs
along the way. I too love you folks and would hate to see any of you hesitate
to speak up.
Hang in there, Woody in KC
