Isn't "Francis" the male spelling and "Frances" the female spelling?"
I've always gone by that rule and nobody has corrected me....I hope I can still
count on it to be right - although some names are without gender but it isn't meant to disrespect if we get it wrong.....I hope. Often the avatar will help too.
I moved into a gated "community" condo and it is very quiet - sometimes I envy the people enjoying a party on their patios but they usually wind up around 11pm and go inside.
I have called the police over the years on a number of occasions (college graduation the whole place becomes party central - but that is where I used to live and the police would take an hour or longer to arrive...but they always quieted them down.)
I think most people don't realize how loud they get when they have a couple of drinks and play music....
The noisiest nights are July 4th with fireworks and New Years Eve with the screechy horns and rattler thingys.
Where I am now I call it the "inmate farm" it is sooooooooooooo quiet but I'm not complaining....
Many years ago, I heard a teacher say, 'an I for the guys, and a curl for the girls' as a way to remember Francis/Frances.
