 We really need to be very precise on our instructions.

What sounds like a very simple statement can have major issues in the

actual meaning.

This can make a big difference in the written or verbal statements we make.

So, stop and think before you speak.

It could save you a lot of money.

Hi William,  Thanks for the reminder on how fickle our language can be.  Precise instructions are very important.

Ha ha, very funny William now on a side note did you know that Tomato or Paradise in Hungarian is the same word... so if you hear a Hungarian say they want to Tomato and want to eat Paradise it is the same word to them:)Endre

Ah yes, perception is everything.  If you put 5 artists in front of a mighty Oak, each will paint it differently.

This is a good reminder to share. It is so easy to have communication gaps.
