I was just reading through some of my old posts and I must apologize. I don't usually go back and re read my stuff before posting it and I neglect to use the spell check. I have trouble following some of my own sentences and I keep stumbling on comprehension over a "there" that should be a "their" and absent punctuation. sheesh, how can anyone understand me?

Well, I tend to catch 'other people's' errors, but not always my own. 

When in doubt, think 'Chaucer'  and Canterbury Tales, etc.  Ever read any of that stuff?  Reading it silently, it doesn't make all that much sense.  But if you read it out loud, it suddenly does make sense. Well, more sense.  I need a Middle English dictionary to understand all of it.

I understand what you mean, even if it isn't what you say.

As my Mom used to say, "Don't listen to what I say, listen to what I mean".

Power corrupts. Absolute power xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is kinda neat.
