Hi All, My Name is Brad and I have just recently joined the PBS and subscribed to The List. I paid my $25 on Jan 23th. When I joined this organization I thought I would learn things. Even though I am learning things it's not quite what I expected. Since joining 19 days ago I have received about 100 posts, of these, half of them have been the debate on the British/American definition of words like yard, garden and their various forms. Are you kidding me? What a waste of space in this forum. When I leave my house whether it's via the front door or the back door, I know where to find my yard, my garden and my flower beds. And I know what I want to do there when I get there. If you want to carry on this British/ American English thing----Let start with----What is Football? Then let's move to what is a boot or a bonnet or a hood or a trunk? The important thing is whether you are in the UK or the USA when someone mentions these things to you-----YOU know what they are talking about. The quality of the forums are going to have to improve considerably before I come up with another $25 (that's American) next year. Respectfully submitted, Brad.
