“Angel” Michigan Police Officer makes a Big Difference

Posted on October 8, 2014. Filed under: Making a Difference | Tags: , , , , , , |

At last a heart-warming story and Michigan Police Officer B. Hall shows us how it can easily work and be a win-win.  When he pulled over a car because a 5-year old child was unsecured, he quickly learned that Mom had fallen on hard times and couldn’t afford a booster seat.  Officer Hall took matters into his own hands and rather than issuing a ticket, purchased a booster seat for the astonished Mother.  “A ticket wouldn’t solve the problem.  What solves the problem is the child being in a booster seat.  It was the easiest $50.00 I ever spent,” says Officer Hall to this no-brainer.  This man is exceptional and made a difference in one of the easiest ways possible.  He brings to new meaning to the phrase “Serve and Protect.”  He is definitely No. 1 on My Favourites List.

Twins = Two

Posted on October 2, 2014. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

Whenever I hear someone describing a set of twins and they refer to them as “two twins,” I have to smile.  Twins IS two, so why say, “the two twins?”   Sort of like describing a red barn and calling it “the red red barn.”  Exacting how red can the barn be?  This is a very common mistake and the only place “two twins” would work is if one is describing two twins, one of two different sets.  Such a discussion wouldn’t come up very often in every day life.  It makes me wonder too, although I have yet to hear it, if triplets are referred to as “the three triplets?”  Probably not.  So folks, here we have it:  Twins = Two, so the “two” in front of twins is usually redundant.    Best best wishes!   LOL
