Excellent!

Thanks for making the shirt available in black too. (While I've seen many good designs, white and gray shirts just don't sell very well.)

Thank CafePress. We've been after them forever for a direct-print black shirt.

I hate to be picky, but as an English major, I can't help myself. It should be "farther", not "further"...

I should have known that. :foreheadslap:

In my defense, I'll cite this dictionary entry:

USAGE Traditionally, farther and farthest were used in referring to physical distance:: the falls were still two or three miles farther up the path. Further and furthest were restricted to figurative or abstract senses: | we decided to consider the matter further. Although farther and farthest are still restricted to measurable distances, further and furthest are now common in both senses: | put those plants the furthest from the window.


I blame my Dixie heritage.

(Thanks for the heads up. I'll modify accordingly.)

I guess there's no getting around the fact that the American language is one where the rules follow usage, not vice versa... :waytogo:

Clear skies,

This conversation was in the excellent movie, "Finding Forrester" if I remember correctly. That guy who killed Mozart made the same mistake. :grin:

Got mine a couple of days ago. My wife got a good chuckle out of it. Great stuff!
