So I have absolutely fallen in love with publicspeaker.quickanddirtytips.com I stumbled upon this communicator's dream after being saved several times by grammar.quickanddirtytips.com If you ever wonder what I do with my free time, these two sites are now the answer. At least Grammar Girl is work related as I pour through the an 800 page manuscript on the history of the South American Division for final revisions. I have no such excuse for The Public Speaker.
In unrelated news, I'm busy organizing my 4th of July picnic (which may have grown to close to 20 people by now, oops). Thankfully decorations are taken care of (courtesy of the Fernandes family), but my menu and activities list are still hoping for additional suggestions. What makes the 4th of July different and unique?
