I don't know where this originated (I got it from [personal profile] aukestrel but she didn't make it), but it needs to be disseminated as widely as possible:
commonly misused homophones


Also, had an amazing example of great customer service recently.  A couple of years ago I bought a really nice, expensive squirrel-resistant copper cage bird feeder.  Over time (and a bear attack) one of the tension clips that holds the lid of the tube down went missing and the other one lost its tension so the lid was no longer secure and the squirrels could get the lid off, and they did, and they chewed up the tube and kept stealing seed.  I emailed the manufacturer, WoodLink and asked if they sold replacement tubes and clips.  They wrote me back and said they didn't sell a replacement tube but they did sell the clips, and they said they'd send me a replacement free of charge if I sent my address.  A few days later, this HUGE box shows up on my doorstep.  I wasn't expecting anything (other than the small clips) so I was puzzled, but upon opening the box, I discovered not just replacement clips, but an entire replacement bird feeder!  O.o  Wow.  I was NOT expecting that!  Below the cut is a pic of my old feeder (festooned with bird poop and lid held down with some pieces of wire) and my pretty new replacement.  woodlink bird feeders

Oh, and I finally caved and got on Facebook.  And Pinterest.

The Oatmeal has a pretty fantastic one as well: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/misspelling

So delightful.

And right on with the bird feeder!

Hee! That Oatmeal one is great! I've always loved Bob The Angry Flower's's apostrophe poster, too.

No, no -- not Facebook!!! (I left it last winter. :)

I know, I know... I held out for years, but it's just that it seems like almost everyone is on FB these days and not posting to either LJ or DW any more. Plus there are now shopping sites I want to use that you HAVE to be on FB to use. :/
