    Funny, I was just going to have a rant about this myself. I wonder how many of the "global users" spell it without the u and how many spell it properly!

    I was thinking about that too! Having been to America quite a few times now I am getting used to American words and spelling. The one thing I still can not bring myself to say is what they call bum bags!! Wrong, wrong, wrong!!!!

    Yeah, that reminded me of the time my American friend who is also a teacher came to stay (my class were email pals with her class and we went to stay with one another and visit one anothers school.) The look on her face when she heard a child ask another to pass the rubber was hillarious!
