    National Punctuation Day HITs Thursday September 24, 2020

    On National Punctuation Day, all forms of punctuation are celebrated, especially the lowly comma. This is a day that’s celebrated on September 24th and is a day used to teach everyone about the importance of punctuation in their writing. The addition or removal of punctuation can change the entire meaning of a sentence, so everyone needs to use this day to help improve their writing skills to write more clearly.

    ​​​​​​A Question Mark Was Once A Word
    When the Romans wrote Latin, they would often end questions with the word “questio.” This word was then eventually abbreviated to just “qo” to save time, This would be written with a lowercase “q” and “o.” Eventually, people just turned the “q” into a tailed loop and then placed the “o” underneath it to save time.
    The Symbol “&” Used To Be In The Alphabet
    Another fascinating fact is that the “&” symbol used to be in the alphabet. It followed the letter “z” in the alphabet. Since it didn’t have a specific name, when children sang the alphabet they would say “z and per se.” Eventually, this was slurred together as the word ampersand and it was eventually dropped from the alphabet.

    Good morning, folks! Earliest start I've gotten in a long time. And right off the bat it's already paying off. But if you don't like Inquisit, you won't want this one.

      I was always hesitant to install Inquisit and then when I finally did, on my old computer, it wouldn't install properly. But when I got this computer last spring I was finally able to get it installed and use it. The only issue I have with it is that after I've used Inquisit the bottom tray (I think it's called) with the icons, date, time, etc., is covered and I don't know how to get it back to normal except by restarting my computer.

      I usually do not have an issue with Inquisit, except not liking them, lol, but this one made my computer freeze-up and I had to re-start, wouldn't go past one of the beginning screens.

    There's a whole bunch of folks on FB-generally the ones with the loudest opinions lol-that have never heard of nor used punctuation. It annoys me, but, gives me troll ammunition if they're "not nice".
    Positive as f*&%! Be happy and everything else is a breeze!

      I can say I rarely see that because I stay away from anything political or about religion on FB. I tend to stick with the dodo (happy ending animal rescues), family, friends, and food sights lol

      cyvamp I do, too. But I also follow my local news station because of our flaky weather here and I swear! Those folks would make a rain shower religious or political!

      Haha I feel the same I swear no matter what the post is about someone in the comments makes it about religion or politics more politics than anything else right now.

    My husband is off for 4 days, not good for my productivity. I will just lower my expectations, especially for today since we are going to be running errands

            cyvamp, what time zone? I was up between 6:30 and 7 EST and only the one Memory and Performance hit so far. Then again, I have Otto set to $3 and Masters because I'm doing other things right now, so that could have something to do with it.

                  Yeah, for about a week. I always get so nervous about if it will work or not when I'm entering the url.
