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.
