When at the Dingle Aquarium, we did not spot any starfish regenerating their legs but I thnk we spotted an extra ‘o’ floating around the place.
It appears that in Wisconsin that the sweets are made at home by the maids.
Or is this another example of American English………
When Doc forwarded these photographs to me last week, I could not wait to get to a French – English dictionary to see if Rum had a different meaning in French a so possibly creating an ice cream for philosophers.
Alas, Rum translates as Rum so another possible blog withered down to this.
Early Saturday morning in Manorhamilton, I did stand stationary taking this photograph but am still at a loss as to how Party affects Toys.
As the shop is now closed down, maybe this riddle, or telling the public to stop, put off potential customers.
I suppose that if you are looking to have work done on your bike, you are probably more concerned with their ability as a mechanic rather than their spelling.
I sometimes wonder if anyone might deliberately include a misspelling in a sign to make it more memorable or to have the likes of me comment on it
Or maybe it is to trap anyone who might call in to comment and allow the owner to ‘go spare’ or accuse the pedant, like me, of being a ‘spare’
Last Friday, we went for a meal to Sakura on MacCurtain St. – a Japanese restaurant.
The food was very tasty and we all enjoyed the fare.
None of us were adventurous enough to try the Chicken Tights…..
Ten and more years ago, I would have thought that the long held position of the Catholic Chuch was such that it was the norm for children to take the Holy Sacraments of Baptism, Confession, Holy Communion and Confirmation – or probably more accurate to say that their parents decided that this was what should be done.
With the anti-Catholic Church sentiment and the rise of non-denominational schools, my impression is that a reduced proportion of children are taking the Sacrament of Confirmation. I would not see taking Confirmation as conforming to the norm.
It appears that Leisureplex has a different opinion – or maybe their marketing guru had a typo….
I spotted this sign recently at the Blood Bank at St Finbarr’s Hospital.
It didn’t look right to me and my mind was in overdrive about how to structure the blog entry.
That was until I went about checking the dictionaries. Despatch is an alternative spelling. I don’t think I have ever used it, until now. Something new learnt.
Chambers Dictionary does not recognise the hyphen in ‘lift-up’ and suggests alternatives for ‘aroun’.
With two errors in one sentence, it does query the Quality Control procedures that may be adopted at Cif – do similar standards actually apply to the product.
Last year, Micko submitted a photograph taken at Funderland.
He submitted a photograph from their recent visit over Easter.
Maybe it was tailor-made by Mr. Taylor……..or maybe not.
I am not sure that Niall Horan of OneDirection anticipated such a name change when his marketing gurus suggested the life-size cut-outs.
Maybe those in Smyths need to play with some of their educational games.
Or maybe, if the name was actually intended as a verb, the author of the sign was signalling their aspirations
