    I read & re-read, OFTEN I find something I MIS-UNDERSTOOD & change my mind about my REPLIES & have to APOLOGIZE to the WORLD!

      Bill, I always re-read as to hopefully not ruffle feathers. Still manage to once in awhile. I come across as abrasive as 80 grit some times. If they heard me the way it was meant to sound it would likely be closer to 1000 grit polishing stone. Those that have talked to me in person and hear the way I speak would clearly understand how most things are meant. I am not a troll, but am very direct and structured and not very PC. With things on the web that does not translate well. Rod

        The edit feature is very good, but the delete the whole post feature can also cause a mass of confusion after it is used. I know I'm not the brightest star in the sky and everyone else should know that by now. If I do write something really stupid even for me, I'll use the Nuke option and suffer the consequences. I try to be very pleasant and appealing now, because I'm getting old and want to be treated nicely too. Quoted from Bill's Dog and written By pAAt !!

      A couple of pointers. Re-reading and editing is important, as Bill said. I do it all the time. I do so much of my job via e-mail, I need to be thoughtful and careful with what I type. I also find misspelling and grammatical errors. I used to write well, but boy do I need to watch myself these days.

      Another tip. If someone writes something stupid or that ticks you off, either forget about it or wait to respond. We have become an instant response world. No harm in waiting a few minutes, hours or days to respond.

          Public Service Announcement! If you purchase new seat springs and have the cushion fabric that uses the piping you stretch to go into the aluminum channel that you then must crimp. A) if you have arthritis you will not be able to do it. B) if you don't have arthritis you will after said cushion is done. Notice how tight the backrest is........had to heat it up in the sun to straighten out....
