    Well I know I dont have the best spelling and grammar but I do the best I can. Norm when are you going to put the Lama THE READING PROGRAM on your list of recomended books. I just noticed the listing of them on the lama site and I know you recomend a lot of those books so Im a little supprised that you had not brought them up yet. Just giving us a little ribbing on our spelling and grammar before you do bring them up? lol

    The reading program is not on the list because I have not reviewed it. I only recommend what I have actually read and consider the best.

    I have several hundred HVAC books and have read them all. Only the few I consider the best made my recommended list.

    I know my customers would be dismayed if I ended a sentence with a preposition!

    Also, how about a comma after "see"?

    Without the mortar of punctuation, the brick of grammar will not stand!

    Norm, here is one for you to work over....

    Child: I want to be read to.
    Mother: Which book would you like to be read to out of?
    Child: Robinson Crusoe.
    Mother brings Swiss Family Robinson.
    Child: What did you bring me that book to be read to out of for?


    Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.

    Of course, you are absolutely correct! How many people say "Where is he at?" or "Where is it at?" "Where did you put it at?"

    Some errors sound much worse than others. We could list dozens and dozens. I think I am getting some folks attention with this thread. That is good.

    I am sure we can find agreement. Plus, I am always open to change and learning new things. No matter how you think I come across, I am wide open to expanding my horizons.

    Please continue.

    I agree with that, and now you have clearly demonstrated my point.

    We must be careful to watch our expanding horizons, less we find ourselves buying two plane tickets. One for each cheek.
