Today's tip and word...

Style Tip:
With 'none' use the singular verb if none means 'no one' or 'not one'.
e.g. None of us in the Hodmandod Household has heard of Adele before 2008.

However a plural verb is used when none suggests more than one thing or person.
e.g. None of the dancers in this video have ever been tempted to try sumo wrestling on a wet Wednesday, I expect.

New Word
augury = a sign of what will happen in the future.
Luckily none of us can
