Typos on this website by Loretto on 23 March 2010 11:03pm
 
from Michael Palin's intro to New Europe;

"I had a string sense of vigour and vitality and hope in the countries liberated from years as anonymous pieces of someone else’s empires."

I am no angel myself when it comes to spelling, but I'd rather be weak than string!

Loretto, we all do typos. It takes me ages to type...and even then.
We've done pedantry here several times and even Queen Anne has been known to make them.

Don' be so modest!

Loretto, at this moment, you are the most famous Irish/American I know.
That damned old buddy of mine Jack always put his head in the wrong places.

I am Irish, my son is Irish American. Now I get the joke about Jack losing his head! I am a bit slow on the uptake.

Please keep up Loretto but if you got my humour too quickly......then you might be smarter than me.
