    Re: the use of 'much'

    You're probably aware, Munchkin, that a lot of is more appropriate in those sentences.

    If you enter much/a lot of in the Search box at the top of the page, you'll find many links to other discussions on this topic.

    Thank you. I guess I was too lazy to search the site.

    I read the posts and I really learned a lot.
