Yeah, Chrissy, I remember when Pappy posted from his ipad, and it looked like Japanese punctuation!

One letter capitalized or not makes an entirely different question.
One of the most recent riddles...
In a farmer's pasture are 30 cows and 28 chickens. How many didn't?
(That's the way the riddle is asked. Most will say, "What do you mean 'didn't'?"
The answer is 10. Again, the English language and how it is used. You assumed it was 28 chickens. Instead, think of the riddle as: In a farmer's pasture are 30 cows and 20 ate chickens. How many didn't?
Who remembers "School House Rock" ? My son was tiny then but we loved it.
Lolly, Lolly, Lolly get your adverbs here!
Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
There were many more.
All we're trying to do is communicate, Chrissy, and iPad don't make it easy. If I get your message, it''s good enough. Cheers.
Hi to you Bill Boggs! Glad to see your post, and know you are OK! some folks have missed you, and have been asking! Cheers!
Thanks, Joe. I took some time off to bang my head against a wall. Although hard-headed I did manage to raise some bumps. Glad you're still kicking all right.
It's better to be OK, than to be KO'd!
This made me laugh out loud. Thanks Ike.

I'm a big fan of the Oxford comma. For example:
Me, too. I watched a bunch of them. Good stuff.
Who'd have imagined that a book about English grammar would be a massive seller? Nor me, but it was...
Remembering one of my school friends who thought anything that ended with the letter s required an apostrophe...
She was filling out a form, and wrote her father's name: Charle's.
Lol, that's funny! Sometimes autocorrect will put an apostrophe in wether it needs it or not. Sometimes I catch my typos and correct them, sometimes I don't. Life is too short too worry about that for me. I'm on my ipad a lot and by the end of the day, my finger is really killing me with the touch screen and I could care less if there is a mistake.
If you can read it, that's good enough for me. I'm not in writing class or sending in a resume so I think we should be more tolerant of mistakes. Many reasons for them besides not knowing proper grammar or spelling.
My rant for the day.
