New Venture.

I have decided that today is a good day to open my Franz Ferdinand and Travis necklaces shop.

It's called 'Scottish Indie Pendants'.

How's it all going Roger? I saw your shop the other day, next door to the one owned by that Wok maker who seems to have branched out in to selling measuring devices.

Hom Rulers I think it was called.
Should Scotland be an Independent country?

Yes, I believe Scotland is a country and should therefore govern itself.
No, Scotland is not a country it is simply part of the UK and should therefore be governed from London.

That was a very good response thank you Hume.I have to stretch my reply because I fear my response may be criticised by some tedious prat from Corby.

Received a PM letting me know that I was being bad mouthed, and I thought "surely not". So here I am ,shocked to find it is true. Uncharacteristically though it took him more than one line,as he himself admits, he had to stretch his reply. :lol:

AWWW thanks Dodger xxx .It is near impossible to be both sardonic and sarcastic at the same time. I am so pleased that you recognised this. I just would like to mention,no offense , that your grammar makes some of your posts near incomprehensible . I am sure Govan Girl would help if you were to ask. Then maybe not. :|

As for the second post ? I just do not get the gist of the message at all. Sorry. :@

Bill, if Codger can't understand the word 'goodbye' then I'm going to have problems with 'sardonic' don't you think?

Offence vs. offense


"Other than how they are spelled and where they are used, there is no difference between offence and offense. Offense is the preferred spelling in the United States, and offence prevails in all the main varieties of English from outside the U.S.

The American spelling gained steam through the 19th century, after being promoted in Noah Webster’s 1831 dictionary and all later editions, but didn’t become the more common form in the U.S. until the early 20th century. The spelling was not invented in the U.S., however. Webster and his contemporaries, in forging what they viewed as a more logical and more American variety of the language, actually just revived an old spelling that had been appearing to varying degrees since the 14th century, long before the United States existed. The Oxford English Dictionary cites examples of offense from as long ago as 1395—and their earliest instances of offence are from just a decade earlier—though it is true that the modern British spelling was settled by the 17th century and that offense was no more than a rare variant by the time the Americans adopted it."

So not a spelling mistake.So glad I sorted that out for you.
