Thanks very much,
I've got a lot of studying to do now, however I hope you will excuse me if I still keep to my old fashioned long winded English in my postings.

Trouble is that half the time you don't know what you're being accused of.
Then again do we old farts give a toss anyway? :lol:

When any youngsters get a bit above their station, I just point out I have cars older than them with more life experience.

I cant take anyone seriously that gets the fitting of a base ball cap wrong, or wears a wollen anorak and thinks its cool!! (my partners son was most distressed when I referred to his 'hoodie' in that way. . . "well mate, its woolly, has a hood and zips up at the front, its an anorak!!!! :twisted: )

10 year of gaming has took it's tole on me

Normal English equivalent

To type like this is good because to some it's normal but for you and me it does look odd, yes?
