Have you chosen the fontage for the letterage on your signage? Did a simple and direct word like ‘sign’ really need a pompous alternative like ‘signage’? Is there any occasion when ‘sign’ or signs’ doesn’t work?

A Special Day for Kyle

Our grandson Kyle leaves on Monday August 27, 2012 for Marine boot camp. On Monday August 13, 2012, we took a road trip in my Corvette to the Corvette Assembly Plant and to the Corvette Museum, both in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Before the plant tour, I mentioned to the tour people about Kyle's boot camp coming up, so they arranged for him to be the first to start a brand new 2013 Corvette 60th Anniversary Special Edition convertible on the assembly line, to do some some test procedures and to rev the engine. It was a great thrill for him (and for me).
