Who can help me remember who recorded a song, I think the title is Stop, I know the chorus goes something like....stop, hey, what's that sound, everybody look what's going down...

Thanks Tom! I'm going to buy myself a Birthday present, assuming that iTunes has it, and download it for my iPod. Maybe I'll download some Simon and Garfunkle, too...

Okay. I misspelled it. I meant Buffalo Springfield, Springfield!

I guess it all just goes to show what a pain-in-the-neck job proofreading is. The impression I have is that, as we read, we don't see everything and our brains just fill in the details. I can go over a large document a dozen times and not catch all the mistakes. Darn shortcut-taking brain! :oops:

I have done proofreading on several different jobs. So, I have a good eye for things like that. I did notice the error but since it's really not that important, I didn't care. I knew what you meant.

One of the tricks I learned when proofreading is to read the sentence backwards - one word at a time. When you go backwards, your mind looks at the word and doesn't look for the meaning of the sentence, so you can catch misspellings easier.

So smart Sue.

I think we all take shortcuts when rereading something we've written It's a lot easier to roof someone else's work but the backwards idea was brilliant although maybe a little time consuming. (Well at least for me it would be). But then I can't read a book in one evening like many of you. LOL
