I was about to go off on a different tangent but first needed to visit my initial post introducing this “life diary” series. I needed to verify what I’d said about projects and/ or the spark that set me off on a few of the bits I’ve been doing this summer. However, when I got back to that 14th August post, I realised I’d made a spelling/ grammar slip-up… as usual! I’d written the following…
… in early May, I coxed it out of hibernation, made a rough and ready work…
… yes… it was supposed to read I coaxed it out of hibernation, so I edited the post to read just that. I’m actually relieved I didn’t get a few insults flung at me. But, I know my friends are far too polite to do that, fortunately! However, just for posterity, I corrected the offending passage. The thing is… this slip-up reminded me of something I’d placed on the About page some time ago. So, I went there to check it out. That caused a wee flutter too… because I realised I haven’t updated the page in years. Mmmm… I really have to have a few words with myself, won’t I?
I had the words so, the first thing I did was to add this year’s Alternative April A to Z to the page… just in case you’d like all that stuff together! And then… I created a new line to capture the series there too… and now, after all that waffle, I’ll revisit the ten “rules” I posted so long ago… including the rule about spelling and grammar…
Rules of Engagement at OMBH:-
Disclaimer 1 – Life’s too short to be too serious about oneself… lighten up… enjoy the ride!
Disclaimer 2 – When the dedicated staff at OMBH take off on a rant the post is often written with a firm dollop of mirth or even a touch of lighthearted sarcasm thrown in… I apologise, we don’t intend to offend, just to stir the pot, a tad more!
Disclaimer 3 – I’m prone to making spelling errors… blame it on the lisdexia! I’m occasionally finding even ‘spell check’ is letting me down… or I’m not using the system correctly… usually the editor in chief, she that must always be obeyed, points out the errors… days after I’ve posted something… please accept my apologies.
Disclaimer 4 – ‘Everyone is entitled to an opinion… but, you may only express it once you’ve earned the right to open your mouth in the company of others.’ As quipped by me is a previous post, click here to see what I was on about on that fun-filled day…
Disclaimer 5 – Remember, I’m not trying to wind you up… I’m merely trying to entertain… or maybe even enlighten.
Disclaimer 6 – I don’t take kindly to criticism… I believe it’s always based negatively… there’s no such thing as constructive criticism… that’s a bull, fallacious PC concept… my opinion… (refer to number 4)!
Disclaimer 7 – Not all doors are made for going through… some should be avoided… or at best only peeped through. Or… should that be at worst…?
Disclaimer 8 – I waffle… I know… I’m proud of the fact and will attempt to master the art… something called ‘continuous improvement’ by the management classes – a principle to be admired when correctly applied.
Disclaimer 9 – All disclaimers are subject to terms and conditions which may change at any give point in time, depending on the mood of the main contributor at OMBH.
Disclaimer 10 – If, or when, in doubt… revert to Disclaimer 1 and work your way through again… and if necessary… again… FUN!!
So… there you have it. My collection of Friday Facts… for your entertainment… I hope! OK, I’ll hop along now… you have fun, but as always… don’t do what I wouldn’t!
