The evil one.

The subject on Cowtippers today was satan.  And by the way, I don’t care if my spell-check don’t like it, I refused to capitalize the “s.”

Here’s part of the conversation.  If you want the rest you’ll have to follow the link and visit Cowtippers.  If you REALLY want to read what I was responding to and don’t want to go there send me an email and I’ll send you a copy.  OK?

There are two posts here.  Scroll down for “PART TWO.”

Not happy with the school kids today.  They did well until they were given a few, simple spelling words to learn.  They hate spelling words.  SO, they don’t try.  Now, I’m not being too tough.  I know what they are capable of.  I’ve seen them learn very large words in a short period of time and ace a spelling test when they were motivated.  When they’re not motivated they’ll misspell cat.
