2020 is a little less than twelve hours away for me, and I’m sure some have already celebrated. No matter if you’re counting down or if you’re in the beginnings of the New Year, I hope that you have great adventures, good food, and happy times with friends and family.
Wishing You a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

There’s going to be a few steps here because I’m sure people have questions.
What is Public Domain?
These are works that are no longer under copyrights because they have existed for a certain amount of time. That’s a very basic way of explaining it. I’ve found exceptions, but this is the general idea. Anyone can use these ideas as long as they take their own twist, which should be obvious. I won’t go into the gritty details here. The point is that works in the public domain are open to everyone and more works enter this field as time passes . . . At least they’re supposed to.

Have you seen the movie or play, “The Lion King”? If you know anything about pride dynamics, the King isn’t the king of the pride. It’s the lioness. Here’s a great article about the lion pride dynamics.

So, what is the Difference Between Anymore and Any more?
The traditional (although now less common) spelling is as two separate words: any more. In the last 50 years or so, the single word anymore has increased in use and a distinction between the one-word and two-word spellings has emerged.

- Do you want any more food?
- Is there any more pie left?
- I can’t eat any more food; I am completely stuffed.
