I'd say about 50% of the time. I see texts, messages, and posts from phones with some stuff in them that you can only assume is an autocorrect mistake. I find myself having to correct autocorrect quite a bit on my own phone. It just doesn't seem to be an effective technology, to me....

I have a 5 yo black Lab who just can't handle bad weather. If it thunders or flashes lightning even once, she just becomes terrified. Quick, shallow panting, heart rate way up, and just continues to rear up on the door in a panic until I let her into the utility room. Once in, she's not coming out o...

I'm no soccer expert, but I do follow it peripherally. Ballack was just asked on ESPN if he thought Howard should have come out, and he said no. He blamed US defenders ball watching, which I could see. However, it appeared that Howard had time to come off his line and cut this cross off. Admittedly,...
