    "We Would" would be "WOOD".."She Would" Would be " Should" Coincidence I think not.

    I'll still go with shortening the last word in a contraction. And I'll admit this is the most off topic discussion I've (notice which word I shortened??) had on the HAMB. LOL
    And I'll (there it is again) admit to being wrong a lot more that I was when I was younger.
    All in fun, folks.

    Welcome to the HAMB DeneeJames! How do you like us so far?

    Justify however you want, but maybe there's a reason that Texas is #49 in verbal SAT scores in the nation (493) and #46 in average math SAT scores (502). And Texas is #36 in the nation in high school graduation rates (68%). Oh and that's out of 50...

    Ouch..... :eek:

    Don't worry North Carolina isn't doing a whole lot better. But we can aspire to do better.

    Welcome to the HAMB y'all. It's all in fun.

    Great to get a few replys.. i am feeling welcome already, as for the spelling police im from east texas ya'll and we pretty much spell and pronounce however we want to. Sadly i thought i was a little smarter than the average bear, but the older i get the less i know.
