When he first started writing a column for me at WinnsboroToday.com, his blog was related to a fictional town, Stinky Creek, Texas. Then he started another blog at TracyFarr.net. His latest is School Bus Cowboy and it has […]

Having some fun

Posted by mcm0704 on May 4, 2011 |

Today I have a post up on The Blood Red Pencil with an introduction to a funny, funny book, Write More Good. This is a book not to be taken seriously, but seriously, it is worth the price of admission. It is an irreverent look at the rules of grammar and language and writing styles […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on April 15, 2011 |

 There is some talk of raising the speed limit in Texas to 85MPH. Silly me, I thought that was already the speed limit. If I’m driving 70 to 75 MPH, cars zoom by me all the time.
