Its the middle of an English winter and yet we already have a drought warning for the South East of England, funnily they allegedly have all the money and the North has all the water.

Used to go to France quite a bit in the late 70's/early 80's, so alongside the mega-expensive Perrier and Vichy brands in the hyper-markets would see loads of 'ordinary' still mineral water, which compared to our water out of the tap really seemed a rip-off at the time. How times have changed, we are now getting ripped-off over here as well.

I tell you, Del Boy was way ahead of his time with his "Peckham Spring" bottling plant in Nelson Mandella House. Only difference is the brands these days are a legalised con. angry

Weather warning for too much rain here tomorrow with localised flooding so too hear of drought in other parts of the country seems amazing, rivers nearly over flowing up here. Rolling Eyes

Brown water is it? I'll never forget what used to come out of the taps up in that there Scottishland. For ages I thought that was the reason whisky was the colour it is, but of course it's the barrels that make the difference, not the water.

Wee udderstand yore spilling purrfectly! Razz

Told you before Yoda, it's a doodle mate. Have an ordinary Word file open on your computer, type what you want in there. The spell-check corrects all your spelling, then simply cut and paste your text straight into the forum. Simple!

Not that we're bothered about spelling of course, but if you want an easy solution, that's the way to go. cheers

Oh dear, you two are going to be funny at the border going into Russia. They will take one look at your entry forms and think you're speaking in a foreign language. Come to think of it, you will be! Laughing

Well, as I said umpteen times before, nobody is bothered about spelling here, its what you say is the important thing. You have to remember, not everyone can be brilliant like me ... and let's not forget modest as well. cheers
