Here we go again!


The flight was bound for Flint. None of the 40 passengers was injured.

This was a local news story. Take out the prepositional phrase and it reads, "None was injured." That's how I teach my daughter to find the mistakes--take out the unnecessary words and phrases.
Last night I had an MRI and the tech kept saying over and over, "You're doing real good." When you're in that little tube with all that banging and then the tech keeps saying the same grammatically incorrect statement, you tend to wonder what school he went to. I hope he paid more attention for his medical exams than he did for his English exams! lol I'm glad I did really well in my exam so it only took an hour...

PS (I'm not claiming perfection here, I just notice it all the time because I am teaching these things to my daughter.)

Do you know I think about this each time I write a post? I wish there was some where we could sent (ha) our posts so that they could proof read them.
O.k., the above bothers me so much I don't know if I can post the comment. :)

And why were we having an MRI last night?

I was having an MRI of my brain and neck in hopes of them figuring out how they can "fix" my neck. It all stems from the car accident in '04. The doctors say I have no permanent injury but I am still having pain and headaches. It's my thorn in my side to keep me humble! lol

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view

So, are you referring to a post in particular? I'm looking at this one and it has one sentence and then 2 paragraphs of me and my experience.

As for attracting readers, I don't think I write to attract people. I think I write because I want to. I don't suppsoe I even really have any focus to myblog except to write when I have time what I feel like writing. I am absolutely open to any criticism, so if you could be more detailed as to what you mean, I would definitely think about your critique.


The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
