This is from may 5. The author is credited simply as "Bob", but whether he's the originator of that photo I couldn't say.

His name is most likely Bob or Robert Phillipp.

Sorry: got busy and forgot to say, "Thank you!" for the info. And the pic--I admit, I'd not seen it before. MR is about the extent of my "free-ranging" on the Net; I'm usually too tied up to do a lot of surfing. I enjoyed the hell out of it, so thanks for that, too.

Google for flaming bagpipes -- a while ago I watched a clip of one at that famous Scotland gathering. There's a guy who includes that as a normal part of his shtick. I don't know if this is the same guy or not, but the one I saw was lots of fun to watch!

Here ya go -- first answer when I googled that

If you're interested, the name of it is Yes, I COULD Care Less: How to Be a Language Snob Without Being a Jerk by Bill Walsh. It's, of course, a book on English grammar. I'm finding that the more I learn about the subject, the stupider I feel, and I think that's partly because there are so many unsettled issues in living languages. Oxford comma, anyone?

Yes please -- to the Oxford comma. I think that's when you like to use a comma between your lists, your other items, your further lists, and the "and" listed after them? Like this? I prefer it. I'll look at that book.

So it is true what they say about owners and their pets coming to resemble each other...

I don't even think about it. I just *do* type two spaces after a period at the end of a sentence. End of sentence. (err, end of subject for me, I mean!)

I had a professor that was thoroughly against double-spaces so I switched my ways.

Corrupt-A-Topic (anymore off-topic and it would be on-topic)

Before we ever had a home PC, my wife taught me that two spaces after a period was the proper way to type. I stayed with that until bulletin boards (remember those?) and early, limited word processors broke that good habit by too many times placing one of the spaces I typed after the period and the next on the line below just before the next sentence. Now I use just one space, unless it involves something to be printed out that I want to look professional.

My typing class in high school taught that it had to be two spaces. This was on real typewriters, not computers. Computers may have changed the rules, but I haven't changed. Yet.
