"I don't know the rules of grammar... If you're trying to persuade people to do something, or buy something, it seems to me you should use their language, the language they use every day, the language in which they think. We try to write in the vernacular.."

Your Daily Dose is:
If my eyes look a little red today, and my voice sounds as if I have a cold, it’s because it’s hay fever season once again, and I suffer with this condition. Hay fever is also called allergic rhinitis or pollenosis. It is caused by an allergic reaction to pollen. Pollen is the stuff that plants make in order to reproduce. In this footage, you can see a bee carrying huge amounts of pollen in its pollen baskets on its legs. Bees use pollen to make honey. I use pollen to make my nose run, my eyes sore and provoke sneezing. Luckily, I suffer from seasonal hay fever. This means that I am only affected during a few weeks when certain plants are producing pollen in large amounts. That time is now.
