El Segundo!

Speaking of "ue" words, I used to have trouble with queue.  Not anymore.  I like the way it's spelled so I can't forget it anymore.

Christ, try French! I live in Vaudreuil and I have a few friends who live Longueuil! Took me years to be able to spell that on the first attempt!

 

L-O-N-G-U-E-U-I-L ??? Did they just throw a pile of scrabble squares in the air to get that??? It's pronounced Long-Gay by the way. :blink:

I think it would be cruel not to wake your balls before you whack them.

I'm after something to help with my yardages. I currently use golfshot on my iphone but now my course in uk is banning in comps due to being able to find out wind speed and direction. I've considered gps watches but after trying a bushnell v2 I was impressed. Problem is the expense of one to buy so was wondering if anyone found any good but cheap laser rangefinders!???

Thanks

 

What's you're price range?

 

Fortunately, I was able to edit before anyone called me on it. :doh:

 

It's been a long week, and it's only Monday...

There are even more words and phrases that I gloss over when I read them. "Double entendre," for instance. I get through "double" and the first few letters of "entendre," and my brain says, "oh ya, it's that word," and moves on.

There are actually more exceptions to the 'I before E, except after C' rule than there are examples. Hence, it is no longer taught as part of the school curriculum in ENgland.

Your probably right about that but if you keep the wagering reasonable when you are in doubt who cares. I am willing to play higher stakes in groups where I know there handicaps just as long as everyone else is truly comfortable with it.

 

 

Both of the classics in one post by Club Ho.  And more issues in the post he quoted (likelihood, an, than).

Minor punctuation errors don't bother me, especially considering a lot of us are posting from mobile devices using one finger and relying on autocorrect.

 

I don't see it as minor punctuation.  It completely changes the meaning from the possessive to an action.  It's so easy to get right too.  All you have to do is ask yourself if the phrase "it is" would be a proper fit in place of "its".

Mmmmm. Friend chicken.

(I had fried chicken for lunch BTW. It was delicious. Boneless buffalo wings.)

We consider all chickens our friends. Although gramps did 12 gauge that rooster that kept attacking the grandchildren.

Why You Should Never, Ever Put Two Spaces After A Period

post #917 of 1060

Was anybody here taught anything other than using two spaces after a period in school?

I didn't even know that people used two spaces until a few years ago.
