I ASKED Ms. English teacher what the special instances are, no answer so far. Anyone's free to enlighten us as to the special instances.

The real deal is that I'm on the wrong forum for a certain group of you, including cyber-badge wearers; this group is intent upon bashing me, making me look bad, blaming me for what I didn't do, deleting posts for no good reason, etc., & that last unfair post by Admin with Santa hat on horse is the last straw for me. Everyone has a last straw, & this one's it for me.

A lot of newcomers have given my posts a lot of "likes", & I'm glad to have served them. All of you who appreciated my horse help really were the oasis in my desert experience here; I wish you the best of luck with your horses!

Nothern, what on earth are you talking about? No group is trying to bash you or make you look bad. YOU are the one correcting people trying to make them look stupid. It's not really your choice what the mods or Admin do to your posts. They have the right to edit or delete your posts if they are out of line or make zero sense...And just because people gave you "likes" on the internet doesn't make you a better person. You'd be a lot better off by not starting all of this melodramatic nonsense threads, telling people to stay on topic then you taking the conversation about a child falling off of a horse to a kid in china and PP references..It's hypocritical. Everything in "Nothern World" is all about Northern is right and everyone else is wrong..Because Northern says so!

I was born in GA, raised in TN, and I ain't got no learnin'. Not because they didn't try though lol.

Actually, I learned more about proper English by learning another language - having to memorize verb conjugations and their proper usage actually made the light come on for me - years after college.

Oh...and I had to edit this post because I left out a word. Told ya I ain't got no learnin'

I have to say, Northern, did you really think you were NOT going to be bashed when you started a thread for the sole purpose of pointing out how stupid other posters were (at least in your opinion)? Common sense goes a long way...

I think the real question is why you felt the need to start this thread anyway? Sometimes just letting things go says alot more.....

Put the energy into something else rather than trying to prove a point that many have moved on from.

I find it a bit hard with the sentence that Tiny had posted, but when I saw the proper way for it to be written it sounded like it flowed better. And mind you, I got a grade of 94 in English.

Around here, and in my own family, they say things like:

Fur - when they really mean for
Wool - when it should be well
when in a sentence they say don't and really should have said doesn't. (He don't know how to tie his shoe laces - He doesn't know how to tie his shoe laces) or when they say things like "not no more" "You don't know nothing"
and many more... Unfortunantly

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
