cliff, if only i knew what i was doing!

the thing about trains and light switches has me thinking of a train trip i took, not too long ago...i'm not sure when exactly...there is a chunk of time (within the 10 years just passed) that is like a picture taken at a shutter speed that is way to slow to accomodate...anyway, what i remember is being in my seat, and as the train took off the morning sun shone bright through the window interrupted by trees or posts or something going by, giving a strobe light effect, keeping with the pace of the train as it went faster (flash! flash! flash!), and it was.....it wasn't long after that i discovered salmagundi!
i remember her asking, "is dessert spelled with one "S" or two?"

I don't know the rule for spelling dessert, but with camel, if it's a camel with one hump, it's "camel", if it's a camel with two humps, it's "cammel"..........I think. :?

it is not pastry, it is pasty, it is pronounced like posstee. The gave me fits about my American accent on this one!

sort of like Hoss from Bonanza and Mr Tee

Hosstee to Posstee. A hearty meal for the Cornish Tin miners!

Actually, it may be that a one hump camel is spelled " canel" and the two hump camel is spelled "camel", since the letter "n" has one hump and the letter "m" has two. Spelling was never my strong suit. I think two humping camels is spelled "LimbaughRove", but that's another subject alltogether......

Here it is pronounced like paaahhhhsty sort of like in the Pa in Padre or in Grandpa. My favourite is Vegetarian or Spinach and Fetta Pasty. But Cornish is nice too. Yeah i get in trouble for TomAto instead of Tomaaaato and GrASS instead of Graaaaass. But I sound like an Aussie overall.

You do sound like a Aussie in overalls, Louise... I know... I have listened in awe to your accent. As for my faux pas in food from across the pond... well... I am a Texian, we eats chicken fried steak.
