Sorry, Ron, I've seen his eyes.  And not the Dean Martin ones either.

And now for something not so completely different---Eric Idle/ Monty Python, know what I mean, nudge, nudge? I thought a nod was as good as a wink to a blind horse?

You're right Ron, spelling!!!!!!

My spelling was Miss Oakley's pet hate too. She said if I had a problem spelling  a word I should use a dictionary. My response was that I had no problem withmy spelling - she did. My typing is somewhat suspect too sometimes. I love spell-checker but it does have a problem with the multitude of english words which sound the same but mean something differen so I have seen things like "he landed on his feat".

Have a great day folks yeah? Like, its raining here today you know what I mean?

Darn keyboard - not all the keys work properly.

I should change to voice activated typing, but then again the way we pronounce words down here in the South could confuse the hell out of the system anyway.

Be careful of those voice activated do dads. I had a VERY bad experience with the first one I tried.

My boss, the Doctor, had downloaded Dragon, so we were playing with it. We did not know that you can change the options from American English to English English. It was set on American English. So I said something into it (his iPhone) and when he played it back, it said somthing like "Shane is a man, I want to do him" You have no idea how embarrased we both were.

LOL, Sue.  Does that mean something else in British English?

Thanks for putting up that video, Paul.  It's definitely a classic.
