    Probably a good idea to post here if you're planning to carpool so we know whom to expect and don't leave without you. I'll be at Home Depot in Valley Ranch at 1pm.

      Yes, Hal, you're on the right track. "Who" is the subject pronoun (typically at the beginning of a clause), "whom" is the objective pronoun (usually found after the verb). It's like the difference between "He" and "him." If you would use "he" in the sentence, use "who." If you would use "him," use "whom." For example: He gave the ball to him. (We would never say, "Him gave the ball to he.")

    Where can we meet at Mayfest? They have two gates, a north and a south gate... Which one? Who has a cell that I can call to meet up with the group? I can purchase 1/2 price tickets online for up to 8 people. Let me know who swears they are going and wants me to buy for them.... :) I don't want to be left with the tickets!

      Dianna & Hal be sure to let me know you went online to buy your own ticket. My printer doesn't work so I'm trying to do electronically (more difficult with two) and I think you can do it as well.

    One more comment and I promise I will stop. If you put in your navagiational device Farrington Field it will take you to the paid parking which is at the south entrance. Here's a little insider tip. Casa Manana is the west, farrington field in on the east. If you go south of casa manana there is free parking if you get lucky and find a spot.

    The traffic was awful on I-30 yesterday. If you can come in through downtown on 7th street it would be better.

    I just discovered you can buy your own ticket. Go to https://mayfestfw.ticketbud.com/mayfest-2014/purchase Put in the promotional code of PRESSPASS. If you forget to do this I can get you a $2.00 discount at the gate.

      Change of plans, Susan. I will meet everyone, but will need to ride alone, as I have another stop to make when I leave Mayfest. Sorry about that! Look forward to meeting you.

      Thanks again, Estella. I think there may still be some difficulties with the code, because I haven't been able to make it work; but I'll keep trying. :-)

      I've been trying too with no success. Wonder if it is tied to registration via Facebook? Same code is on RetailMeNot
