    One of my favourites of all time.
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      Lately it seems that all these famous and talented people whom I've never heard of are dying. I mean no disrespect to Etta James, but I had never heard of the woman until today. A few weeks back some writer named Christopher Hitchens died and, likewise, it was headlines for days, but I knew nothing of the guy.

      It's not exactly as though I don't listen to music or read books I do both all the time. I can't figure out how I completely overlook these people until they're dead. It leaves me wondering what other artistic geniuses I've managed to ignore in my cultural ghetto and who I won't know a thing about until the BBC and this forum announces their deaths.

            Pan, I think I fall victim to the same thing. I kept seeing her name in the news yesterday, and was thinking who is this lady, but as soon as I heard "At Last" it hit me...
            Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.

              Heh heh, I was just thinking the exact same thing. I wonder if it has something to do with our location

                  Just tried looking up ATS and found at least half a dozen business technology companies on the web named ATS. I couldn't find this one, though.

                  Anyway, if it were my company, which of course...

                  You can tell them that someone always manages to get away with theft (yes, start calling it theft), but that doesn't make it okay. Remind them that if they choose to steal, they risk a cease & desist,...
