    In view of some of the comments here, perhaps a new big button might be useful?

    Where are you with the Essex accent? Do I need protective custody? Don't say "sen" say "sel" "I'll do it my'sel"

    The past tense of lose is "lost". Loose has an entirely different meaning and its past tense is "loosed".

    The thing with these very annoying and oft repeated threads is. One must make sure that spelling and grammar are always correct. Lest one will look like a right tot or worse still a complete cint.

    There's no end of these, e.g. "Penistone" changed to "penny stone". Anyhoo the correct spelling of "Uranus" is "Georgium Sidus" - as named by the discoverer William Herschel, in honour of his patron King George III (the mad one).

    I find Angularr Merkel rather annoying and other Germans get a raw deal: Herbert von CarryAnn and Wilhelm Fort WannGlerr.

    But topping the bill must be Koss O'Voe!

    This overheard question remains with me from a period that I spent at Rolls Royce in Derby:

    "worri wi yo or worri wi isen"?

    Translation - Was he with you or was he alone?
