Your fave grammar Rule is probably fake Quot first of do 1, a Quot pedant Quot is not jew Elry. It s a a person who gives too much importance to details and formal rules especially of grammar Quot according to Macmillan dictionary. For example the forbidden splitting of infinitives and ending sentences with prepositions. Like most of their ilk. Originated in the victorian Era and a were entirely dreamt up in an age of moral press nativism. Reflecting nothing of historical or literary usage Quot hut were intended a to encourage the poor English language to be More like an entirely different and entirely dead language namely latin. The English language did no to change to make those Rales obsolete they were simply fictional from the Start when it comes to splitting infinitives most every one s done it before and after the victorian crypt latin Rule makers unilaterally Laid Down their Laws because our languages nuances require that sort of flexibility. As the article notes the phrase a a you really have to w atch him Quot has t the same connotations As a you have to really watch that brings us to a yahoos a the american heritage dictionary defines a a Yahoo As a a rude noisy or violent it s from Jonathan Swiff s a Gulliver s travels in w hich Gulliver meets y yahoos while trav Eling to various fanciful lands.

Wayne and Jeanne want to say a Many thanks to our children family and friends who joined us in this Celebration and most of All Praise to god for his goodness to fall is upon us and the heating season is around the Comer. Today Art Nash. Cooperative Extension s Energy specialist offers his perspective on efficiency of heating for the fall season. As we evaluate different heating options this fall we face an unusual situation a the Cost of heating with Wood and Oil per Btu is pretty much equal if you buy them from vendors. On aug. 23, Oil dipped to $38 a barrel and the expectation is that the Price will most Likely not increase anytime soon. Many believe that the saudis intentionally created a production glut last fall which will take time to a soak other experts believe that since global demand for chinese exports have declined it is highly Likely that the drop in Oil prices is due to oversupply in the Wake of a downturn in Oil demand in the chinese Economy. In any Case the current Price of Home heating Oil no. 2 diesel is running $2.75 per gallon delivered. At approximately 138,500 bus per gallon it takes about 130 Gallons of no. 2 Oil to equal the bus in a Cord of w Hite or Sitka Spruce. This is based on the fact that w Ood in Roxie Rodgers Dinstel it k \1 c >1 i my St contains 18.1 million bus per Cord if it has a 20 percent moisture Content. At today Price heating with no. 2 Oil disregarding the different efficiency ratings of Oil furnaces and w Ood stove you would have spent $360 on that Oil for the same amount of bus in a Cord of White Spruce. You could consider other factors a Birch gives around 25 percent More bus than White Spruce the Cost of split delivered Wood Cost to deliver the fuel Oil to your House and using kerosene instead of no. 2 diesel for better fluidity in cold weather. If you look at the Wood free Market pricing As it is reflected on Craig list and the major Wood v endors in the tan Ana Valley you can spend right around $350 a Cord for split dried and delivered Spruce or you can spend around $360 for Oil at the present. So w hich will you choose for this Winter some people May add into these calculations their interest in air Quality during our cold we Eather inversions possibly Carbon emissions or the ambience and smell of their favorite fuel. The question for Many who May we ant to transition May naturally be. How much will it Cost to convert my current system if i want to try a new fuel but that is a discussion for a different article. For now keep an Eye on those prices. Rather than keeping an Eye on the fluctuations of Oil commodities in the Trade exchanges Call your local heating Oil distributors. The vendors gauge their prices More on local demand which fluctuates with local economic activity. Than spot crude prices.
