Quick Note: My Enlgish

We are family men with a full time jobs, coach sports, teach classes, and spend time in odd corners of the world frequently. In short, We're hurried when we write. We don’t have an editor and none of us were English majors in college. That being said you can expect misspellings, improper grammar, and words have been known to completely disappear while I type.  If Grammar Girl would volunteer to come and edit are posts for free, we'd buy her expensive coffee. :)
