Royce...
Happy new year to you as well... and I'm with you on the use of the English language and spelling etc.... my pet hate is the use of "ME" for the word "MY"
... as in "I washed me truck" which should have been "I washed MY truck" Bugger Political Correctness..... to me, that's far more important than worrying if it's a "manhole" or a "person access"!!!!!!!!!
Just my opinion
Cheers
Brian

I agree. Having said that - I believe it is mainly typographical. Much easier to accidentally type ect than etc. Only 46 at mid-day today. Hot northerly blowing.
