    Have a Wonderful Weekend, my akaQA friends!

    October 3, 2014


    Just want to let you know how much I enjoy our friendships on this website.  I enjoy the questions and answers, the banter and b.s. that passes among us.  
    There's a lot planned this weekend, so you'll see even less of me, but you are always in my thoughts and prayers.  Each one of you has a special place in my heart!  
    Thank you for supporting my questions and answers, and being available to help nameless, faceless others who pass through our site and disappear, or stick around and join the party. 


    Sincerely,   Bob/PKB

    Labor Day? Well at least we celebrate Christmas and the New Year at the same time with only one day’s difference…...

    LOL. Did you notice we spell Labour differently? No wonder y'all think we have a funny accent.

    Tonight Roy asked me how I spell defense. When I spelled it with an s instead of a c he said this is incorrect that it should be spelled with a c. I looked it up online and apparently the Americans are only a few of the people who spell this word with an s. Take a look here>>http://grammarist.com/spelling/defence-defense/
    Defence and defense are different spellings of the same word. Defense is preferred in American English, and defence is preferred in all other main varieties of English, including Australian, British, and Canadian English. The spelling distinction extends to most derivatives of defence/defense, including defences/defenses and defenceless/defenseless. But the words defensive, defensiveness, and defensively have an s everywhere.

    Though defense is now the American spelling, it is not American in origin. The OED and Google Books reveal examples of the spelling from as long ago as the 1300s, many centuries before the United States existed. That spelling continued to appear a fraction of the time through the 19th century, when it was taken up by American writers. Today, to the chagrin of those who dislike American English, the spelling is gaining ground throughout the English-speaking world.

    Now that I've met Roy I do spell color/colour, neighbor/neighbour, labor/labour with an u added to the words. I'm learning Tommyh. :)

    And I, a Canadian, spell "American" but only here on aka. When I first arrived here, I didn't want to let on where I was from so I did not spell "Canadian" as in colour, neighbour, labour, etc. Maybe I should start spelling the CORRECT way now that I've been here for 3 years! :)

    Have a great weekend Bob, always good to see your answers and comments. 

    Have a good one, MsBob, always looking forward to your comments. :)

    We don't have any big plans made for Sunday. I started a pork roast in the crock pot at midnight (UK time) and I'll be making twice baked potato salad to go with it tomorrow for our Sunday tea.  Good food and great company!


    Enjoy your weekend Phyllis. I'm looking forward to seeing you back on aka again soon.

     


    Don't be gone too long Bob. See you soon.
