Just a brief (I promise!) addendum to the discussion on good vs. well. When discussing a person recovering from sickness or a cold, the correct sentence would then be 'I feel well enough to go to work today', an exception to the exception, which causes all the confusion. You might wake up feeling good, or feel good about your chances of getting a promotion, but you feel well enough to undertake a task.

its, lose, & principle

"Its" refers to the noun that preceeds "its," not "follows it."
"Lose" also means to misplace something.
"Principle" also means corpus, as in principle and interest.
Again, see Strunk & White!

Bugbear

One of my pet hates is the compliment/complement confusion.
It's easy to remember:
To compl.i.ment is to say n.i.ce things about something or someone.
"It was kind of you to compliment Aunt Gladys' cooking."

To compl.e.ment is to .e.nhance something in some way.
"Those cushions really complement the sofa."
