and something vaguely related, i.e. Spellcheck "Suggestions"!!

Recently it was suggested I might want to change the city name "Imola" to "immoral"icon_biggrin.gif

And while looking for MART, Ravenna (Italy), to find out exactly what kind of museum/gallery it is, I am offered lots of Ghits for Walmart, Ravenna, OH...icon_smile.gif

Any others?

naise Feb 19, 2010

Answering a question about shoe naises (which turned out to be a typo for shoe laces), I discovered that a naise is "a homosexual German who likes to dress in women's clothing".

Women's shoes, in particular, in this case, I assume.

And this looked such a promising thread... Feb 21, 2010

...but I was surprised to see such a tiny response. But then maybe this is because, like me, although this has indeed happened to you, now you can't remember what at that moment seemed so fascinating. Perhaps because you gave yourself a strict talking to and went back to work rather than pursuing the much more interesting thing you were looking at. Or maybe because you are like me and can't remember things from one day to the next, however riveting they seemed at the time....
