*(National Grammar Day: Warning: This is a rant but it's serious to me. Please join me in a simple but chalk-board screeching campaign: understand the difference between 'who' and 'that'. Let's start a grass-roots, cross-country and cross-Canada, fight, or at least be aware of, the tumbling of this grammatical issue. I hear news readers and commentators making the boo-boo too and it makes me nuts! People are WHO. Inanimate things and animals are THAT. It's that simple. "I have a friend WHO likes to make cards." Not "I have a friend that likes to make cards." Ohhhhhhh, nails on a blackboard (aka chalk board) to me. Listen and you'll hear it. I had a marvelous 8th grade English teacher who reinforced my love of grammar and that love stills reigns supreme today. By the way, I found a fun grammar page/quiz that tested usage of who, whom, that and which. Oooops, I got 7/9 right and my mistakes were between that and which. I love learning!)
Enjoy March. Now I'll get out to My Country Loft Studio and do some stamping!
