Hi Dawn, I'll add you and your recording to the magic window. It's not a rule, but usually people wait to hear back from the book coordinator before recording. It's really just so you don't waste your time. There could possibly be more than one request for a section, or it might have already been do...

In LA last year you had the opportunity to overtake a house. Not unusual? It was in traffic.

I should note that I did not personally overtake the house, but it was in news for quite a while.

Re: crumpets

They look really good ! I've never seen a home-made crumpet before - I think I'll have a go. By the way, do our N. American friends know what 'crumpet' can also mean, or at least used to mean about 40 years ago ? hefyd indeed. wikipedia actually says it is "a rather dated term for a woman regarded ...

if you have a trader joe's nearby they sell crumpets. i don't know how legitimate they are but they have a british flag on the package, and they're good.

on the other hand, if andy minter has never had a crumpet, i'm inclined to think there is no such thing.

my husband says that the only rule about pronouncing latin is to say every letter, because nobody knows what it sounds like anyway. is that true? I had only a very crappy liberal arts education.

like i was saying, if people want to agree on a standard beginner English or whatever, that's great for learners. but that's not what they're claiming Globish is for. it's supposed to be the international language of business. but it's hugely restricted without justification, it's not simpler becaus...

His belief in Globish is practical. He says, 'Globish does not want to be French or German. If you want to read Shakespeare or Harry Potter, learn English. If you want to do business, learn Globish. There is no competition. Each is a distinct concept.' i suppose so. i can see agreeing on a standard...
