But, I do agree, and try to do similar at FGRV myself, though with a MUCH more diversified crowd there.
The spelling of the word humor is (today) as widely accepted as starting a sentence with a conjunction.

A quick check of the map tells me we're in America not England!

Spelling
Humor vs. humour

Humor and humour are different spellings of the same word. Humor is preferred in American English, and humour is preferred in all the other main varieties of English. It's my understanding that after the American revolution a concerted effort was made the change the spelling of many words to create a distinction between American English and English English. Here in Canada we broke away peacefully and kept the English spelling.

4runner might not be the premier TV, but it will handle what it is rated for. Religion and politics, two things that don't mix well on hobby forums.

This puts it better than I could.

Methinks J Mac is striving to be an American.

I thought they used our dues to pay you folks.

I appreciate the drift that happens, be kind of boring without it. You learn after a while that the subject is only valid for the first page or so.

Jim and Glen, thanks.

I agree. This is one of only two forums that I regularly read, and both are for the same reasons: the positive attitude and helpfulness/sharing, and the fun.
Thank you, moderators, for your care and patience in nudging the rudder to keep us out of the stagnant pools, but allowing us into the inlets.
