wordpress helps you proofread

Just read the WordPress blog — they’ve got a new service called After the Deadline, and it’s a proofreading application. Check it out here – http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2009/09/08/atd-wpcom/
Interesting stuff given everything we’ve been talking about with the Twenty Most Common Errors on EasyWriter. I found this suggested link, too: Five Grammatical Errors That Make You Look Dumb.

My dad sent a picture yesterday of him playing the bagpipes last Memorial Day for the Memorial Day Parade in Wilton CT — something he does every year. My dad just turned 82, and he trains on his treadmill to make sure he can walk the mile or so, often uphill, while blowing his lungs out.
