    Is that a Spanish word, Elle? I always thought it was Italian as that's how my Italian DIL always refers to it.

    Okay, decided to look it up. Geez, how simple is that! It's Spanish AND Italian. So now we all know. I've always liked that word. Sounds so much nicer than the other words referencing that part of the anatomy.

I don't dare to use it now as the inmates shouldn't hear staff talking that way, even though I'd really like to tell them to take a long walk off a short pier in Spanish sometimes.

    Like it Kathy, I bet you get some time when you really want to say that to. Interesting that you use "take a long walk of a short pier" we use that too.

    Hey, Elle, I've got one of those grand culos too! I think it must be a by product of retiring.

    It came about because I wondered why you spell things differently, like the word colour, you spell it color. That was it really

    I've always wondered why that is. When we lived in New England, they pronounced words differently - like pahk for PARK & sofer for SOFA. They are frugal -if they drop a letter (R is the biggie) from one word, they keep it & add it to another word!!! Talk about a strange accent. It's worse than a Brooklyn accent.

    Maybe they just got lazy & dropped letters that don't affect the pronounciation of the word. You guys also put "er" backwards! You know, like centre & mitre. It's a French holdover, I think. Only the French pronounce it like it is spelled & we pronounce it like it is written. How do you pronounce it?

    All that said, I love hearing all the different accents.

    Now that an interesting one. Being scottish if I said centre it would sound like centerrr. heavy on the R. In England the pronounce it more like Centir a bit clipped.i have been told that my vowel sound sound weird as well.

    Another pretty one, Donna. I don't think anyone likes the curlies, but they do get a little easier after you've done a few of them (at least on the 10" blocks, don't know about the 7" ones).
