Hi Pete

I'll list the differences and send you a PM if you wish I have pics to illustrate most points. Drop me your direct email to [email protected]

I've no interest in winding Ed up any more.

it means I spilled my meds on the key board and they were sticky also a signal to the mother ship that there may be Morris dancers in the vicinity and to prepare the probe equipment for them - :wink: --e---its actually pronounced aee----as a native born Canadian of settler stock circa 1780 I feel it my duty to define the correct usage of ===A ----firstly the pronunciation -----a hard 'a' as in the first letter if the alphabet be followed by ' e' as in feed ----so you say aee ? with a rising inflection ----USAGE --at the end of a sentence-question -statment as if to request agreement as in ' lets get a 24 [ of beer is understood]aee? ' or if you didn't hear the question in place of pardon --aee?----or in surprise such as --'that Elan is real fast aee ?' in the event of a total statement of disbelief or disagreement ---'cummon aee?--------There ,now I can wear my maple leaf pin with pride aee?------e

and it is spelt 'eh' .........keep taking the tablets!

?Eh ( or in English) is a spoken interjection in English, Armenian, Japanese, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese meaning something along the lines of "Repeat that, please". It is also commonly used as a method for inciting an answer, as in "it's nice here, eh? ...

I thought Pom was a term for the english - I am a native born english speaker but please do not accuse me of being English.

I'm Welsh - Wales where men are men and sheep can sure run fast!

Let's keep it constructive, please. If necessary, create a post on the "E", the "A", and on "Being native english speaker but proud to be Welsh", you sure 'll get some success!
