traveling teachers who talk good

I needed to add a comment here. I am a retired elementary teacher. I think what is not understood by some of the posters is the high energy and skill it takes to manage 125 different young children every day!(I taught art and saw over 700 kids each week.) In the years before I retired, we were absolutely "meetinged" to death! xxp

I must add my weight with Mucky and ask ?????????????????????????
By the way I think if you are a retired elementary teacher the correct gram-a is "traveling teachers who talk well" if you look through the rules of English construction you will find that you really cannot leave a sentence with a question, e.g. good - one could say good what? Talk good English, talk good in bed, talk good when they have had a few too many or what?
The only other question I have about your post is "what the hell are you talking about"?

I'm sure tansy2's post title was ironic. Having said that, I'm also at a loss to connect this post to his/her other thread on dental tourism or anything else.

Yes, yes! It was ironic!!

I meant for this to be in another thread, re: traveling teachers, long summer vacations. Seems we might lighten up a tad here?

Hi tansy2,
It appears that your intention was to post a reply to another thread.
But some how you created a new thread.
Thats no problem, we all make mistakes.

Just last week I posted a question about the UK on the USA forum. So it doesn't matter how many times we post. But my single brain cell occassionally goes daft on me.

So Did you find the original thread that you were trying to post to?

If so I would suggest you add this post to it now, it will then make sense.

You have to admit the post came out of the blue and does appear strange sat there on its own.

Anyway my fellow Fodorites are only too pleased to lend a helping hand, especially if posters are new and not quite so familiar with this Fodor's tool and its quirky little ways.

Let us know if you need some support and you will definately get it, just don't be afraid to ask.
Also if my grammar is pants, don't worry about it, I don't !! ;-)

Good Luck

Muck

Tansy2, honest , I wasn't trying to offend... it was just my sense of humour.
Hope you find the right post.
You gotta admit, the post on it's own does make us scratch our heads!!

OK got it now. Tansy2 I hope you found your way to the other postings that you wanted. I was being naughty with my reply because I never usually get a chance to make comments on other people's spelling and the like as I make more mistakes than everyone put together - Neil will attest to that as he is always correcting my spelling etc because Neil is perfect you see :0)

Come on, Liz, when was the last time I corrected anyone's English?

I must admit though that I was saw red when I read this morning that a prominent cancer specialist had said "I think it's reprehensible on behalf of the politicians". Of course he meant to say "on the part of the politicians", a very different thing.
For shame, Professor!

Hi. I really have not gone off in a pout. Thank you-all of you nice people for your posts. I did not find the thread that was appropriate for my original post, but I did find quite a bit of argumentative discussion on WHO HAS THE HARDEST JOB...I will not engage in that topic again! Thanks again amigos. soon, Tansy2

Liz, that must have been the phantom Neil_Oz who sometimes sneaks in and hacks into my Fodors account. He's a real pedant.

MargOz: I bought German ones the last time and they are lasting a lot longer than the Chinese brands. I like to have good secateurs too.. If you don't have any I will give you the name of mine.
Neil, shame on you letting a quisquilloso maniac on your fodors site.
