Ok...I think we're both right. here's a usage note for "affect" from dictionary.com:

Usage Note: Affect and effect have no senses in common. As a verb affect is most commonly used in the sense of “to influence” (how smoking affects health). Effect means “to bring about or execute”: layoffs designed to effect savings. Thus the sentence These measures may affect savings could imply that the measures may reduce savings that have already been realized, whereas These measures may effect savings implies that the measures will cause new savings to come about.

the difference is really really small, if you ask me.

I never could get the hang of affect vs effect, so I just don't use either!

What to do ???

I effectively removed my hot water heater but was unable to affect repairs as required.

Seems as if the water cools down while taking a shower and my hot water heater turns into a boiler?

Any ideas on what to do ?

Garry

Dagnabbit! All this talk of beer and kegs......I left my CO2 bottle and tap back in Ohio. What could go better with an aluminum trailer, than an aluminum CO2 bottle, hooked to an aluminum keg full of beer?

Alas, beer kegs are not WBCCI approved.

But wouldn't you be the conversation of every RV park you stopped in if you had the bottom cut out of an MT beer keg, and simply had it placed OVER the propane bottle? LOL

An excellent abuse of "their", "there", and "they're" ... I will not address the issue of "more better."

Good job ... ya done good!

This is interesting....

I plan to fly to Florida and the airline schedule notes the flight is non-stop.

When do I get off? Where do I get off? Can I get off? Will this flight ever end?

Good point, Rick. How can you "deplane" if the flight never stops?

Which reminds me of a funny story.

About 15 years ago I was a reporter for a small biweekly newspaper in the Texas Hill Country. One of my beats was covering the Ingram ISD board meetings. There was some kind of wagon train celebration traveling Texas at the time, and the school district had given the people involved permission to use the high school grounds for an overnight camp site.

The district superintendent was explaining this in a public meeting, and could not think of the word "dismount" as he was speaking, so he said "The riders will dehorse..." and caught himself just before everyone in the room burst into laughter.

I, of course, being a diligent journalist, quoted him verbatim in the newspaper. We had a good enough relationship that I could get away with it.

Talmage, how about propane bottles in the shape of beer kegs. Hmmm, I wonder if you can retrofit OPD valves on beer kegs.

That would be great! - I bet they would not withstand the pressure, BUT, unless you propose the ideal to someone, you never can tell.
Keep in mind that the 'string trimmer,' also known as a 'weed-eater,' started out as an idea in an individuals head, and the first working model was made with heavey duty fishing line and a Jiffy-Pop popcorn can!
