See how it is here? That 'poster' thing was really just an amusing little drop of rain to tease Jackie's hair with, that became a deluge. ..

Just happens to be a minor pet peeve of mine; I posted early on that I flatly refuse to call a person a poster. Though I realize I'm fighting the current; I incurred the wrath and derision of my entire Sunday School class last week when I pointed out that the book had "it's", where the term was possessive. [gnashing my teeth all over again at the thought e] Just call me stickler...

As long as you understand what it means when it's used.

How many days does this voting last?




Normally a week, but in practice it will wait till all the submitters have voted.




Shanks is the only submitter who has not yet voted. If he doesn't vote by Feb 19th, I'll post the results.

Love and kisses.....

I really like D, but it's too close to K for voting comfort... ergo, I'll go to E which is not only plausible but also something there *must* be a word for.

I agree completely with all of this. (hi, FB!)
