Pats you really don't wanna see that as I am sure you value your eyesight.

Well, if 1989 is 'recently', 2000 is definitely 'very recently'. I see Prince Charles then.

In 1977 (Silver Jubilee year), Prince Charles visited the town I was living in then (Stone, Staffs.). Our daughter, who was at the time about 4 and a half, had just started school, and the kids lined the street where the school was. I didn't bother going, but when Genevieve described Prince Charles (in her childish way) but I thought - that doesn't sound like him - oh well, perhaps it is how she sees him! Later that day the local TV news showed the visit, and a man who fitted perfectly Genevieve's description walked the route. A bodyguard!!! She had been watching the bodyguard thinking it was Charles!! Bless.

The local paper had loads of pix in it that week of the visit, and one is of Genevieve sitting on the kerb before the visit, waiting.

Cute story, Anne. But what grabbed me the most was the spelling of curb (kerb). Is that how the Brits really spell it or was that just you being funny? It's interesting how different our language is in some instances.

It's the way I've always spelt it, Pats. It's the English spelling of the word.

"or was that just you being funny?" Moi? Being funny? As IF!!

:)

Was also going to say that it is a wonder I don't spell my words the US way and talk about periods rather than full-stops etc as I was taught English during the 5 years to 'O'-level (age 16) by a wonderful teacher from Rhode Island!!

She once brought in an American English/English dictionary which was interesting. You wouldn't have thought it would be very fat but it was HUGE!!

It's pretty interesting to me too. I wasn't being funny. We do spell it CURB. :o)

Miss Kenny (the teacher from Rhode Island) was my biggest influence at school, I think.

Although at school I enjoyed history and Maths (still do) her lessons were my favourite.

Wonder if she is still with us?

:(
