Topic: What does Plated-Over mean?
Posted: Tuesday, April 24, 2018 11:24:10 AM
Car pbody painters provide details on grille finishes such as chrome, black chrome, powder coat, polished bare metal, and paint. Note that if a grille has been coated with a specific finish, that fact will be displayed clearly in the product description. If you see only phrases such as "mirror-like" without a clear reference to any applied coatings, that means the outer surface of the grille is bare metal (stainless steel or aluminum) and has been machine-polished to a high sheen resembling chrome.
Plated-over grilles are ‘not bare metal grilles’. IMO

Hi thar

As per TFD:

jump
Also found in: Thesaurus, Medical, Legal, Financial, Acronyms, Idioms, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.
jump (jŭmp)
v. jumped, jump·ing, jumps
v.intr.
1.
a. To propel oneself upward or over a distance in single quick motion or series of such motions.

Under the circumstances, I feel there no need to write 'up and down'. I am subject to correction.

Here is one sense in which it is correct:

Person 1: "What do the Johnsons do for their annual family reunion?"
Person 2: "They have a picnic."

I agree with FounDit, it should be

They are having a picnic.

Is 'jumping up and down' correct?

Is simple 'jumping' not enough?

Topic: When Liz returned to the bar
Posted: Monday, April 23, 2018 9:36:24 AM
I will write this paragraph as follows;

Liz returned to the bar after a few minutes looking out for Cindy. She located her near one of the televisions singing a song, holding a fork as if it were a microphone. A couple of people were applauding her impromptu performance in the bar that did not have a karaoke. Liz, fearing that it may end in a disaster, brought her friend to the table and promptly ordered two cups of coffee. IMO
