Patricia Spork Update June 8, 2018

Patricia Spork Update June 8, 2018 So much important news occurs daily that I’ve focused more on sharing some of that news on social media, rather than writing news-related opinions here. And with all the censorship occurring, I totally stopped making videos. I’d just started learning about how to create them. Needless to say, enthusiasm […]

Plot for Valentine’s Day

Words used incorrectly in some article sentences or image captions found during reading of articles in December 2017 and January/February 2018 were used in a free-flow fiction writing exercise imposed upon myself this morning.

CO2 Hoopla

CO2 Hoopla If you’re aware of global warming, or should I say ‘climate change’ than you’ve been bombarded by the hoopla of CO2 . . . you know, the consequences of its overabundance. So I found all the hoopla to be ironic when reading a June 21, 2017 article about a “long-term” (”decade-long”) experiment in […]

She-Tick Spray to the Rescue (Not Product) – Sporkplode Video

Hey, hey, hey! Read an interesting article in early July about pest insects and other tiny “critters”. One sentence began with “She”, but most likely should have been ‘The’.

When Eight Became Either

Opening sentence to a major news story published July 2, 2017: “A shootout erupted around 10:30pm on Sunday night in Avignon, southern France, when two gunmen opened fire on a crowd outside the Arrahma mosque leaving either people injured…” During article read, realized “either” should have been numeral ‘eight’.
