Jane: I'm happy for those who can read other languages besides English, but I must be in a minority, only being fluent in Texan and Arkansan dialects. I also know a bit of Aussie and British English, but that's about as far as I can take it. Texan translation: I don't know 'bout you little missy, but Texan is the real a ling... aw, I say ling... aw, common shared language. Arkansan translation: If you ain't an Arkie, you ain't no-buddy! Aussie translation: Yeh, royt! British English: There is only one proper language, and that, my dear, is the Queen's English. Tutt tutt and ta ta! I would say, until God reintroduces a pure language (Zephaniah 3:9), everybody feel totally free to write as you are comfortable writing about bulbs, and those who understand can reply in a way they are most comfortable replying. ;-) Mr. Kelly M.
