We're into July with all the busyness of fruit ripening, heat waves happening, and new skills a-learning. Jay Angler here with a hodge-podge of useful threads (is hodge-podge still a word, or did I just date myself horribly?)

Trace Oswald wrote:There aren't many words I dislike, but I cringe when words are used incorrectly. Writing "loose" when the person means "lose", as in "I always loose my car keys". Using "literally" incorrectly immediately makes me think less of anything a person has to say after that. I'm struggling to overcome that one. I have enough of these that I'm more comfortable spending time with my dogs than conversing with humans.
