    Margaret picked up a spelling slip on another thread, I find the spelling and grammar quite good here compared to some forums (fora? plural?) I think possibly this extract takes some beating.

    We only have about 17 miles of dual carridgeway and dispite the flatness of the land we have very few stright roads due to ainchent land boundries, blind corners and hidden dips.
    At least he does admit his shortcomings in his sig

    Spelling is to people what flying is to birds. In that respect, I am a penguin.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Hi Dorsetmike,

    Drinking wet cement, eh? That would make ones head all mixed up and permanently set(like a liberal)
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Some people believe you can learn how to spell using a dictionary, but unfortunately this is not the case. The words in a dictionary are arranged in alphabetical order, so if you don't know how to spell a word you won't be able to find it anyway. Others believe that dictionaries can tell you the meanings of words, but this is equally misguided. Every word in the dictionary is defined in terms of other words in the dictionary, that is, all the definitions are circular definitions. It's exactly like putting the plug of an extension lead into one of its own sockets in the vain hope of getting some free electricity. What do you actually get? Zilch! And so it is with a dictionary. If you meticulously followed all the references from one word to another you would realise that is is simply one enormous closed circuit. The nett amount of information which comes out of a dictionary is precisely zero. So if you have one of these white elephants wasting space on your bookshelf, I suggest you send it for immediate recycling. It may then become something infinitely more useful - toilet paper!

    I do have a dictionary John, but I don't know when I last used it. I must admit to using my spell checker though, I have to make sure people turn into frogs and not toads.

    I once spent hours at work arguing with a colleague about whether "focusing" or "focussing" was the correct spelling, but I think we finally discovered that both were correct.

    One Sabbath, an Alabama preacher told his flock: "Someone in this
    congregation has spread a scurrilous rumour that I am a member of the Ku
    Klux Klan. This is a horrible lie and one which a Christian community
    cannot tolerate.

    "I am embarrassed, and I do not intend to accept this. Now, I want the
    party who did this to stand and ask forgiveness from our Lord and this
    Christian family."

    No one moved. The preacher continued: "Do you have the nerve to face me and
    admit this is a falsehood? Remember, you will be forgiven, and in your
    heart you will feel glory. Now stand and confess your transgression."

    Again all was quiet. Then slowly a drop-dead gorgeous blonde with a
    traffic-stopping body rose from the third pew.

    Her head was bowed and her voice quavered as she spoke: "Reverend, there
    has been a terrible misunderstanding. I never said you were a member of
    the Ku Klux Klan.

    "I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the
    sheets."

    The preacher fell to his knees, his wife fainted, and the congregation
    roared. Hallelujah.
    Cheers MIKE.

    What friends are for ...

    I have a friend who is a psychologist. I was a bit wary of her at first. I thought she would decode my body language and realise just how screwed up I am, but I have found she is far more interested in telling me about her problems!

    Old chinese saying.

    If everyone confined their observations to those subjects on which they are qualified to speak, there would be a deathly silence throughout the world.
