Sorry to spin you out Bill, (half-ways anyway) but @ 6:00 am  I tend to stray 
from the King's English and slither to the grammatic darkside of ... (dare I 
say it?)                    "Verb Misuse".      Mea copa...   And to all a 
safe/fun Memorial Day weekend!!  KL

ps: Nice layout on the Columbia suppliers site-

Not that you said this, but I go all sideways when people say "couldn't
possibly be a coincidence" when actually events like this literally define
the term coincidence. 

Today I got an email using the term "Architecting", which of course spun me
not just sideways but totally backwards. I sent the perp a blistering
response that said (more or less) "Architect is not a F*^%ing VERB."

So here are two situations that got me sideways (well, one and a half) in a
SINGLE DAY!!! Couldn't possibly be a coincidence.
