Why ?

 

Fancy things like auto spell checkers and predictive text does it all for people now so there is know need to cheque what we type.  Technology is a wonderful thing  :lol:

Good job I started at an early age!, not mastered it yet though, I could never decide which was correct "I like a nice pear" or "I like a nice pair". :D:wink:

I think you have a need to check. :lol:  I'm guessing you mean there is no need to check.

I think you'll find that was the joke.

 Because it is the language we were taught to use correctly, if anyone needs a spell checker for any of the words on that list then they should be ashamed.

I'd imagine somewhat sun scorched (dried out?) and wind battered and also slightly wobbly on land legs too Cleo :wink:  

 

There's always Eagle though as an alternative... maybe a bit flighty and very strong nail clippers, a bag over the head and a tether might come in handy :lol:

You’re right, it is your hat and they’re wrong. Just because it was on their chair when they returned there, doesn’t make it theirs.

 

We’re living in a time when people have no sense of right or wrong. Things were so much better when we were growing up; where has the feeling of community gone?

 

Back then, we a little more respect than youngsters of today will ever know; no, we had far more respect.

 

Two pounds would buy you a cab to town and enough left over for a couple of pints too….

Really, I don't know why I asked. Sorry, nothing personal asperity, but I'm not inerested in doing detention, or anything else with you or anyone else. A momentary lapse, after which I felt so guilty and disloyal to my recently deceased husband. i know in myself that I was just being flippant but I cried my eyes out afterwards when the pain of his passing once again stabbed at my heart. Sorry.

Cleo never apologise for your feelings be they guilt,joy or sadness. Feelings are what make us what we are and the fact that you can still have a momentary lapse proves that you still feel his presence close to you as he was when he was alive.

 

As for English anybody who can manage to write and spell correctly (and I don't just mean the word itself) after being brought up in Lancashire and working alongside wiganers, lethers and scousers must be on a par with the best linguists in the world.

Cleo.... it is 25 years since I lost my first wife; I still have my "moments".... a certain song or a certain place etc. We are only human and have feelings of loss that only those who have been there will ever understand

No not interested Asp, I will continue to beat you in debate, and you will continue to loose, and get more pedantic and more desperate. You really are going in low now. Smacks of desperation. :wink:

In your ignorant opinion perhaps, but not in reality. You only know how to kill debate, not actually how to engage in it. Did you really think that this thread was directed at you in particular?

Well I think you should name the " some " then Asp, I find it odd that your even bothering to deny it. Are you getting more desperate. Go on be a devil, be honest.

Why should I bother? You obviously think it was aimed at you so why not leave it at that if it makes you feel special?
