Robron is entitled to his opinions. You should keep your sniping to yourself johnny and the Webmaster should remove threads that are designed to directly criticise someone. This is not how people behave around here johnny

I have been shot at myself. In fact someone recently used a machine gun.

Robron wants to loosen up, Kazzzz.

I mean, this all started because of John putting breakfast REGIME instead of REGIMEN. Nowm how many people do you know that call it a REGIMEN?

I am going on a new diet REGIMEN? I'm starting a new exercise REGIMEN? Etc etc.

No, MOST people (including yours truly) call it a REGIME, rightly or wrongly, and to correct a post like that I'm afraid shows Robron to be a bit of a pedant.

There have been lots of posts where the grammar/spelling/syntax whatever has been wrong - but you ignore that in the spirit of the posting's meaning, which is more important.

Or are we now going to be marked out of 10 for spelling, grammar and content?

Anne, Robron was probably justified.It can be irksome (if you are so inclined)to see almost everyone use a word incorrectly.I was quite aware of the correct usage but was actually participating in said breakfast!Due to my work pattern,night and day are all the same to me.

No probs Robron.

Anne and Johnny, please ensure in the future you insert spaces between words.

^^"REGIME,rightly"

^^"myself.I fact"

Nah, only stirring. ;-)
