    Here's the one that more people screw up than any others:

    loose-----not tight, wiggles, shakes and eventually falls off.

    lose------ didn't win, lost, can't find, don't know where it is.

    "drink to much".........."eat to much"

    This thread reminds me of the one about the backwoods legislator who was ridiculed for spelling "bird" as "burd". He asked for the floor, stood up, and said "Some of you smarty-pants make fun of me because I of the way I spell bird. Well, if b-u-r-d doesn't spell "bird", what the hell does it spell?"

    and also the one about the lobbyist who wanted to block the funding of new buildings at the state university. He approached a self-educated backwoods legislator and told him that he should vote against the funding:

    Legislator: Why?
    Lobbyist: State U is a hotbed of sin. Why do you know that the women students
    are required to matriculate with the men?
    Legislator, alarmed: No!
    Lobbyist: And not only that, the men and women are allowed to use the same
    curriculum.
    Legislator: I can't believe that!!
    Lobbyist: And worst of all, a woman graduate student is reuired to show the
    professor her thesis anytime he demands to see it.
    Legislator, shouting: I won't vote them a damn cent!!!

    Thats alright Nuk I have more dead brain cells than you ever will live ones. Some can go through life and no one knows they are dumb others like yourself prove it everyday when they open their mouths. Nothing from nothing still equals nothing, therefore you should change your name to nothingnuts.

    You're a great source of entertainment.

    Pukey,

    This is really a losing battle. Might as well try to teach a bear NOT to sh_t in the woods.

    Ron,

    I like the way you make a point and, of course, you are right. It's amazing how a thread changes from the first to the later responses.

    Pukey: WOW! I had no idea you were such a GURU of words. Lighten up! If you can understand the point, don't sweat the small stuff or you may have a stroke. Don't worry, be happy.

    I have difficulty understanding why some of you criticize helpful instructions. Poorly written comments have less effect than those that are correctly written.

    Some readers will question the wisdom or knowledge of those writing poorly written comments - like mine before I discovered iespell.com, above. (Life is more challenging for those of us who were born without a spelling gene.)

    Hi Folks,

    Just wanted to say I think Mr Stagg was trying to help those of us who make a lot of mistakes when we talk. One other thing, please do not take anything that I say too personal because I can be pretty snotty sometimes when I'm vexed. Hope you all have a good week.

    Bye Folks,

    Happy Hank
