We exist on the Earth to make it better place to live

My Self-introduction

Dear friends! I have just joined the EC as my wife has been its member for many years and always talks about you. We do have a lot in common, but why not to have more? I am a native speaker and hope to be useful. But no grammar questions, please! Tanya says I am illiteral and I always ask her to correct my articles before having them published.

A few words about myself. I have been born and raised in Boston. My mother and my grandfather were university teachers at Harvard and I grew up with the idea that education, knowledge, common sense and human reason are the most valuable in this world. However, living through my life I realized there is much more to it! But being a university teacher I should tell you: knowledge is our main power. It is not weapons that makes us stronger, it is only our desire to make this word better than it is.

I'd like to show you the place where we live. It is really wonderful. I have been living in Florida for 30 years and I swear, I have never seen such beauty although I traveled much. We live in a rather small town called Crystal River, in the mid-Florida. It is at the west coast, not far from Tampa. The fact is that the river is really very clean. Its water is transparent and one can see everything on the bottom. I am not a master of photo, so I will add the one from the net. You won't believe that ocean creachers like lamatees live here. I have no idea who permitted to build a nuclear power station here! Anyway, come to our land and be our guests or stay forever.

However, if the authors want to compete, I can only help and encourage them! Hahaha!

So, here are 50 “best” mistakes that made me laugh and gave me inspiration. Now, I’d like each of you to choose 5 of…

Hi, my dear learners, my true friends! Who else can give me such inspiration?! I should have posted this blog much earlier but you know, all my nightmares are the result of your mistakes.

Modern Cinderella. Part Two, the Happy End

Posted on October 25, 2017 at 13:30 16 Comments

Well, my friends! I promised you the happy end and here you are! However, before reading the story, you are expected to read my usual introduction presenting and explaining your mistakes. Hope you will find a few minutes to look through them.

  1. “She always gives me wise decisions.” As a matter of fact, people are used to saying words of advice rarely followed. We usually listen to advice, analyze it and make up our mind.
  2. A thief wanted to take away a…

What a Nightmare I Saw Again!

My Nightmares are Back!

Posted on September 27, 2017 at 17:30 23 Comments

My dear friends! You know, since I joined EC, I have never slept well and I have seen a lot of different nightmares. This time my nightmare was mostly provoked by your typos. You know that English spelling is not a piece of cake. Only one wrong vowel may change the meaning of a word and a whole sentence. So, here are the words and expressions that made me see one more nightmare.

  1. “A battle palm/leaves”.  What should I imagine reading it? I do imagine a very aggressive…

Writing Challenge: Write a Short Story

Hi, my friends! In August we started playing The Wheel Of Fortune again and here are the words we guessed.

SQUEAMISH (adj) defines a person easily made to feel sick, faint, or disgusted, especially by unpleasant images or sensations.

Example: Lila is really squeamish about cats and she never visits my house just because I have one.  

Synonym:  FASTIDIOUS.

INDEFATIGABLE (adj) defines a person…

It is about the house of old people. In our society, we take our old mother or father there. We are able to support them but still, we take them there to spend the rest of their life. They did their best to raise us and to bring us to the society.…Continue
