You may, however I highly encourage you to complete your one minute test and the section you have with Carolin before you record this one. These are extremely long sections and unless you have recorded and edited before the practice with your other claim will position you for an easier time here.

Welcome to LV and please ask if you have any questions along the way. :D

Oh boy, this sounds intriguing.

It's now the final week of leave for my husband so we are heading out to dinner. I need to remember to schedule my doctor checkups before his leave as I always gain weight while he's home. :lol:

I should be able to PL tomorrow for you. :wink:

I'd like to claim Ulysses S. Grant, December 5, 1870, both sections. Question on the sections - Does it have to be two, or can it be more?

~Erik
Hi Erik,
For that year it needs to be two sections. The break can be moved, if you think there is a better place due to subject, but it has to be two or it messes up the numbering for everyone else. Some of the other sections (1, 4, 5, 12) are longer as a single section but have a shorter overall word count. You might want to wait until I get the MW is up before you confirm your claim. The section breakdown is only for the years where a single section would be too long. Let me know.
Not a problem, just curious. Still interested.

~Erik

Net Neutrality and the Border Wall Part One.
Opening sentences of part 2 look interesting.

30:20 - Owing, perhaps, to the large expanse of water separating the island from the peninsula, the want of harmony and of personal sympathy between the inhabitants of the colony and those sent thither to rule them, and want of adaptation of the ancient colonial system of Europe to the present times and to the ideas which the events of the past century have developed, the contending parties appear to have within themselves no depository of common confidence to suggest wisdom when passion and excitement have their sway and to assume the part of peacemaker.
I hear adoption

Not anymore, you don't. I just love making edits! :P

I also removed the U S Grant signature at the end, cause he ain't done yet.
