To paraphrase the Jedi Master YODA, there is no try, there is only do or not do. That idea fosters another thought about a term used quite often in woodworking magazines, blogs, podcasts and tv shows. PRE whatever, drill, sand, assemble or finish. A person either drills or not or sands or not or assembles or not finishes or not If the action is done before another procedure it does not change the action. :confused:

The mole hill has taken on the proportions of a mountain, and it really does not make a bit of difference in the scheme of things but even the smallest pebble in a shoe can be really irritating.

What do you think? Have you a pet peeve, an insignificant something that is just really irritating?

I'm puzzled :confused: there must be something that irritates you like PRE does me. :lol:

Well, Geologists have no problem with the term " PreCambrian" and pilots wit the term " Preflight", so there are legitimate uses for it. :-)

I guess sometimes pre and post can be OK like previous but I don't know what a vious is or premature and mature is sometimes a problem or there is post office and postpone prevalent and preparation and preposterous. Then there is befuddled and bemused but that is a whole new branch on this bush that will need some preparation and pretense to pursue.
