    Yes, but I always have to think through affect and effect which never fails in making me feel dumb. :)

    your is proprietary , insinuating ownership.

    you're is an abbreviated form of "you are"  

    the same rules apply in regards to;

    There - " they live over there" 

    Their - " it was their day to walk the dog"  "their kids drive me nuts"

    They're - "they are in town tonight"
