Hey "YDD"... thought I'd drop by for a sec to say "hi" to you... I no longer frequent/waste time on Topix Forums, my heath is of utmost importance right now and I have neither the time nor energy to 'worry/fret' over ANY Political party's stance/claims/BS be it Dems OR Repubs...<quoted text>
"con't" is actually a typo
I love hyphens. Hyphens often can convert "trivial undertakings" into "trivial-undertakings. " If I wish to, and I do, use hyphens in "copy-and-paste," I shall, regardless of what you and your freshman English teacher think.
I am quite amused that you clearly had to look up the business about hyphens. How do I know?
1) When you are writing your own stuff, you use a normal double-quotation mark -- that is: "
2) When you "copy-and-paste" from some "authoritative source" (because you do not know the proper usage such diacritical markings), your normal (for a typewriter or computer keyboard) double-quotation marks turn into slanted double-quotation marks, like you did above with the opening double-quotation mark " “ " and the closing double-quotation mark " ” ".
Can't you write ANYTHING without augmenting your so-called "half-vast" knowledge with information from the internet, without attribution?
As I told you some time ago... I am not in good health so my time is very limited as to where I spend it,(where I spend my time).
Anyway, wanted to say "hi" while I was/am in this part of the cyber world today...
Good luck to you and you take care now...
p.s. I did a new one at Sing Snap today:
The song sounds awful but I am having difficulty trying to 'sing' a tune while hooked up to this oxygen tubing, so bear with me on my 'singing' 8-)
