    Gravity Defyers! They have been a LIFESAVER for me, since I have a bad (lower) back, horrific bunions, hammer toes (due to ruptured plantar plates), and flat feet. They are VERY comfortable and...

    You say "dahge?" Maybe "edge" is a better example? Or "ledge"? There is a definite "dg" sound, vs a "soft g", which I think of more as like a j sound. Like "jejune?"

    These are all good. starhorse "This too shall pass" was what got my father through WWII, he had it written down and repeated it to himself, every day.

    Mine?

    Lighten up on yourself! Enough with...

    This :yes:

    It's very subversive, and the Brits have a different sense of humor (and sensibility) than we do; they are often willing to go "out on a limb", a shockingly vulgar limb! :eek:

    Windsor and tru: it's pronounced like "dodge", as opposed to like "menage"--ha! Another French word :D

    Pennsyltucky, yes exactly...:lol: It *is* a place!

    My father (a well-educated man, but a...

    Kate--yes, good idea! If you are squeamish, this is not the show for you ;)

    Yes indeed!

    I blame it ALL on the French :winkgrin:, who have provided us with an astounding number of words that are in everyday use by English speakers. Or to clarify, words that we use "every...

    Smart Alex :lol:

    My husband (who is from Western PA, so there is a constant tendency to leave out the "to be" in every sentence with the verb "needs") pronounces the word garage as "garadge",...
  14. Has anyone watched Black Mirror, on Netflix streaming?

    DH, DD and I just finished both "seasons" (a season being a stingy 3 episodes, *SIGH*), and found it thought-provoking, original, irreverent and at times, shocking. Ah, those Brits! :D

    IOW, some...

    The above ^^ reminds me of when my daughter was younger; an avid reader, she used to pronounce words (she had never heard spoken) "phonetically", such as "Her-ME-Ohn" for Hermione, in Harry Potter....

    ^^ DH is from Western PA, so this was his default way of talking; we actually joke about it (especially since I have "trained" him out of it :lol:, resulting in him becoming more self aware.) My...

    :yes:

    People use "it begs the question" in place of "it prompts the question"; completely different meanings (though I must admit that *I* didn't know this until about ten years ago :uhoh:)
  20. Invested :lol: I remember that episode well!...

    Invested :lol: I remember that episode well! (Actually, I remember *all* of the episodes! :winkgrin:) At least he got the first three letters right. Too often people say "it's a mute point".

    "Anyways!" Augh!!

    Stop it!

    And I agree with all the rest; including "Lymes". Worse, often used with a apostrophe; as mvp said, it's NOT possessive! And don't get me started on the overuse (and...

  24. Fellow horsepeople: how do I keep my "new" car from becoming a filthy "horse car"??

    My newly purchased 2011 Camry has fabric seats *sigh*, and it's CLEAN!

    Against all odds :lol:, I would like to keep it this way for as long as possible--IF possible. I know this is probably a...

    So, if my math is correct, you have been seeing this guy for 6 weeks, and this (most recent) crazy ex claims to be 8 weeks along?
