"Hi Evangelina, Thanks for the nice comment. It's not uncommon to read blogs without signing in. In fact, I, too, did so, especially when I got a really busy schedule.  Yes, not every day is a good day - sometimes we just feel a little off…"

Keep your head above water

Yes, it's an English idiom, which means 'manage to deal with responsibilities'. That's not what I'm trying to say, though. People here (where I live) use 'underwater' or 'dive' for those who keep reading or watching but don't bother to leave a comment or say something to show they're here/online.They'll try to hide. Sometimes they failed to show up for weeks or longer. The thing is you can tell they are still online - you know they're watching. They must have reason to do so - maybe they're…See More

Dear Expector,

How are you, doc? Hope you and your family are pretty good. Have you already moved your work place? It will be very fun to have a new milieu.

Have a good day!

Onee

Dear Mr Expector, I wonder why you didn't feature "Stranger in the night" challenge. I think it is a very good challenge. Elen, Mohammad, Peppo, Setareh, Batuha... did their best shot. So I think their effort should be record. Thank you for reading my comment.

Thanks a lot, Smith.

Thanks Smith but still I am confused to strangle this cleft sentence. And, I must say this sort of grammar based writing challenge is quite helpful.

Hi Doc. Happy holidays to you from Japan. I'm reduced to using a mobile phone for a while. My new school doesn't use computers or have wifi. Still, it is nice to see some new parts of Japan. I hope you are well.

How are you, Doc?  It's holiday vacation.

I missed my favorite activity here in EC , the blog commenting!  So, I missed a great chance to continue practicing my English.  But this time, please bear with my constant appearance again, hihi!  I feel I got all the zest and vigor to put my English practice into writing again.

Have a wonderful day always, Doc!  Is it true that you have retired from your career (not the virtual one!)? No need to reply if it sounds too personal!

Nice to be in your page again...

Hello Expector,

My message is about the one dated jun 2015. Wow it has been a long time, sorry for delaying. I have just noticed.

Subject is " re-publish". Thank you for warning and advising me, I really don't know the options of dates. Again sorry if I wasted your time.

Good Luck and take care friend,

S.

About Expector

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my page! Do you like the above photos I took when I was travelling in China? And, did you enjoy listening to the music on my wall? I hope so.

I'm not really an English teacher, though I often help learners learn English. I love English, which is a fantastic language and now a global one. I like to write and read blogs. I hope you can check out my blogs below - don't forget to leave your comment there and I'll respond.

I love MyEC. It's a great honour to be a moderator here. I'll do my best to help keep MyEC interesting, friendly and decent. I'd like to thank Josef and Tara for offering me such an opportunity to be a member of the excellent team here.

Enjoy!
