The food on Downton Abbey tells a whole story of its own. (Get a scone recipe and listen to an audio interview with an expert in the food of the Downton Abbey era.)

Mrs. Patmore isn’t a huge fan of technological advances in the kitchen. Find out how refrigeration and quick boiling kettles changed food for the people of Downton Abbey. http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/house-home/food/a-year-in-the-life-and-kitchen-of-downton-abbey

Gosh and gee whiz Mr. Smith.
You make it sound so easy. I get hung up just trying to put together that first sentence. All I can lay claim to is periods . . . of being - dashing - between an otherwise, commatose existence, at least that's what my sentence feels like.

As a science fiction reader and former scientist, I'm excited about this new book from my friend +Lee Falin: Science Fictioned

The book "takes ideas from cutting-edge, scientific research papers and turns them into science fiction and fantasy stories."

My TEDx talk just went live! See what I come up with when I'm forced to narrow my thoughts down to "one big idea" about language.

+Robert Keeme I love the extra punctuation! Yes, what you're talking about is also what I am talking about. It's an exciting time to be thinking about language.

Grammar Girl and so much more
Introduction
I'm Grammar Girl and so much more.
Bragging rights
Founder of the Quick and Dirty Tips network, creator and host of the Grammar Girl podcast. Since they call this section "bragging rights," I'll mention that I was once a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show, my first book was a New York Times bestseller, and my audiobook was nominated for an Audie award. My book "Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students" was named to the International Reading Association’s 2012 Teachers’ Choice book list.
