Hi heddy, thanks for the answer and your warm participation.
Yes it's been a long time since I last had the chance to have you in my threads. How's life?

By the way, what does "never bordering on a novel" mean?

Hey Atatürk...
Life is GREAT! Dancing I trust you & family are great too!

I miss your threads too d'oh! ..but sometimes I’ve got work deadlines, Brick wall so TFD Forum takes a back seat!

Yeah... FounDit was like fresh oregano, while you, hedy mmm prepared the whole salad with Greek cheese.

Yep, Yep, Yep...We sure done did it!!! ... FounDit’s ingredient would compliment my salad with that delish Feta Cheese...yum!
His wife might even give him that task!! Hahaha

I’ll start a new series like about favorite food recipes...
Posters would love to add their favorites ...imagine they could be from all over the world! Of course we have to start with you after I thread. Then FounDit, Atatürk, possibly tautophile, even Orson Burleigh, (if he’s not offended when I state,“You are wrong...”)
I already expect many to contribute.. maybe some of the betíse will stay away from it or possibly add... NOT!

It would be titled “What’s You’re Fav🥑Food?” series, #’rd...
The avocado logo because I said so...

I’ll explain on the first thread...Food, origin, ingredients? how much? weight? prep & cooking time? and how many people it would feed... and I’ll place it where I please!

So, can I count you in taurine?

Does 'take' mean 'choose"?

"Section 15.3 takes a slight detour into the question of media recovery (i.e., recovering after the database has been physically damaged in some way-.g., by a head crash on the disk)."

I don’t think it’s a matter of ’choosing’ it’s more like the only way to go ...that’s why you would use the word ’take’...

Tara2, also use either one or two quotation marks on either end of a word ...this was probably a typo...
So, if it was, I’m sorry for pointing it out! d'oh!

Topic: a few concluding remarks

Tara2 wrote:
Is 'remark' like 'mention'? How is it countable? Isn't 'remark' here redundant and just "a few concludes' suffice?

"Section 15.6 then introduces the crucially important concept of nvo-phase commit, and Section 15.7 discusses savepoints, Section 15.8 describes the relevant facilities of SQL. Finally, Section 15.9 presents a summary and a few concluding remarks."

Wilmar (USA) answers:
Remark is a noun, does that help?

hedy mmm adds:
Here are my 2¢ and further explain...there are 3 sections, each describing itself, however, the 4th section—the summary of the 3—is the ”few concluding remarks”...concluding indicates end!

Thanks, hedy. You summed it up beautifully.

You don’t have to thank me, FounDit, I guess I’m just one of the “guys” who sees things clearly!
As far as addressing myself as a ”guy”...(for I expect to see a betíse TFDer post a comment). Brick wall
My response, and I’ll share it now is...”So many men, So little time”...hahaha!

There’s a YouTube video with Miquel Brown singing the song...(but I could only relate to the motorcycle!!)
I have one man in my life, “My Endless Love”, and that’s the way it will always be...till the Lord takes me home!

The exam was so difficult as to get a good mark.

Is the above grammatical?

Hi Atatürk, ”long time no see”,Dancing

tautophile offered some very good suggestions Applause ...and adding my 2¢:
“The exam was so difficult that it was hard to get a good mark” or other synonyms of difficult and hard...or reversing them!
“The exam was so hard that it was difficult to get a good mark [or grade]”

Also, in your question:
“Is the above grammatical?”
You wouldn’t just say grammatical, because that’s exactly what it is...relating to grammar!
Correct would be “Is the above [sentence] grammatically correct?”

BTW FounDit...I love your answer...succinct...never bordering on a novel! Applause

Ashwin Joshi, what a beautiful pict, saying & sentiment (by Dr. Leo Buscaglia....he happens to be my favorite speaker of all times)...
Thank you for realizing that it is a potent recipe for anti-aging... and a gentle reminder of my original post!

I’m going to post a new thread that continues from this one, you've responded to, on my “Did You Know” series, however, this time it won’t be just health’ll be love related..I think you’ll appreciate it...

Yes, “A single rose, your garden, your world...”

This wording is both rude and insulting, resulting in you practicing what you preach against. d'oh! Not everyone see this as a demand (that would include several hundred million people), so just because you do, doesn't mean you are the judge of proper behavior. Sanctimony is more offensive than this kind of request.

"Very" sounds wrong since it's a small sofa.
"In front of me" sounds wrong because it's a sofa. Should be "beside."
He wasn't "far of" you. He was near you.

"How to say it more natural way?" How does one say it in a more natural way?

Actually, palapaguy...I don’t mean to be argumentative, however, the original sentences were,
“My son was sitting in FRONT of me on the sofa.”
“He wanted to tell me he was far from me”

...So in essence his son could NOT have been BESIDE him, he said he was sitting in FRONT of him...and no one can assume the sofa is small...
My sofa is (6ft long) and my love seat (4ft long), and are in FRONT of each other facing a cocktail table between them a distance of 5ft from each his son could’ve very well been far away... His sentence was: “I am very far from you” my house he’d be almost 7ft away...definetly far...eek! d'oh!

I just answered bihunsedap’s question!

palapaguy, I do like how you modified his thread question,Applause much simpler than mine...d'oh!

BTW That’s Ok for a son but definitely not for a sweetheart, Shame on you he’d want to be beside me!Whistle (Did I say that out E-loud?) Whistle
