comment “the” is in my business name, capitalize it or not?
I think it can be whatever you like, but you have to be consistent. That online classifieds site is "craigslist, Inc." and Yahoo! has an exclamation point for goodness sake.

comment “There lie targets” vs. “there lies targets”
It's correct, it's just a bit clunky. For instance, you don't say where they are lying. It might help to clean up the sentence if you specify that. Like, some intermediate targets lie between you and your goal or in your path, lie intermediate targets. Without more context, it's hard to know.

That being said, how one would choose to stylize their company name in a logo, for instance, wouldn't have to follow this guideline.

comment “There lie targets” vs. “there lies targets”
Do you need to use lie? Can't you just say there are intermediate targets?

comment Is there a term for the other 2 months in a quarter?
Even if there was such a word, I doubt it would be meaningful for any potential volunteers. Better just to specify the dates. I wouldn't bend over backwards, linguistically or otherwise, for someone who's only volunteering 4 days a year.

comment Is “since so long” correct?
whether 1-2 months constitutes a long time is completely subjective. 1-2 months is long time to go without food.

comment Does 'turn off (a person)' always have a sexual connotation?
Alternatively, someone could "turn me on" to Thai food. That would, god I hope, not be a sexual use of that expression.

comment Generic foreign words with specific English meanings
@Chris, tchrist, Actually, raisins come from Thompson grapes, which are green. They are dried in the sun which shrivels them and turns them brown. Sultanas or Golden Raisins are made from the same green grapes and then bleached with sulfur dioxide.

comment What is the etymology of “BFE”?
A related destination, at least in my mind, was always East Jesus, which I first encountered mid 90s.

comment What is the exact use of “X aside, Y.”?
The sentence seems poorly written to me. It's literally saying we should love the devotion to small-space living, as opposed to the concept of small-space living, or even the small spaces themselves, which seems to be the point of the article.
