More rain today

At least its supposed to rain today. It doesn't look like it at the moment. The sky is full of patchy clouds, none of them dark enough to rain. Bear is working and I don't really have anything outside planned for today anyway. Its close to the end of the month and that means work work work work.

I found a way to get Coyote motivated to learn better grammar and spelling and writing skills. I should have thought about it before. I found this website Constant Content and several other site like it on WAHM.com . As far as I can tell people put requests on this website for specific articles and there are a whole bunch of authors there that write the article and send it in. They do blog and Myspace reviews too. I showed it to Coyote and told them what they payed and then explained that they only accept articles without any spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. I also said he was going to have to learn how to be a much better writer if he wanted to do something like that because he writing skills really suck. He got excited about that and decided that that might just be worth learning those things. The helpful ladies on WAHM.com gave me these two websites to get him started with.

I wouldn't mind trying something like that myself. A writer was what I wanted to be when I grew up. I can remember being 5 years old and saying that. I know my grammar stinks but I can use those websites too. I can remember a program Bear used to use for his collage classes that corrected Grammar also, maybe he can download it again.

My Ashes and water are sitting in the kitchen. I tried draining it with a coffee filter but that's not working. I may have to let it settle and then try to drain the water off that way and then pour the ashes into an old rag and squeeze the water out of it. Its no were near strong enough though. I will probably have to repeat this process several times. Its supposed to be strong enough to sting your skin a little when a drop is placed on it. I might just be waiting my time though.

If you have Microsoft Word, it will grammar check for you. If you don't have office, there is a freeware, opensource version of it out there. Go to http://www.openoffice.org/
