Purdue is not just chicken

I have been most kindly told by my sister that my use of commas, and my pronoun happy usage needs to be fixed PRONTO!  I guess that is what I get when I sent her chapters one and two, and told her to bash them to the best of her abitity.  I guess I had it coming to me.  Darn it if I only made English class a priority throughtout school.  But have no fear Purdue is here!

She sent this great site, and by golly I will make it a priority to learn a tip or two or three....or four....or one hundred!  See you can teach a semi old dog some new tricks!

Good thing my writing basher is family, I can't be mad with her!  Ok all kidding aside I am grateful to have such a talented sister.  If you go to my farm blog she is a monthly guest blogger on all things green and horticulture.  I know she will give me the non-sugar-coated version of how I did.

See you at the online writing lab at Perdue!  Now no laughing I poured my heart out letting the world know my English is not perfect and giving you the link so you can brush up on all things gramatical!


There is everything here for students, parents, writers, ESL, cover letters, APA guide, MLA guide.   OWL-Online writing lab you rock!
