Ok, ok, I give up. I'm tired of fighting with spell-checkers, such as the one embedded into the Firefox browser I type each day's blog posts into. I have been mixing American and Canadian spelling (in my defense I am a citizen of both countries) since I started blogging back in 1999, and now it's over. USA number one, henceforth. Goodbye "rumour," hello "rumor." Now give me your oil.

I never did understand that crazy extra U y'all insist on throwing into words. Think of all the extra keystrokes you'll save!

nooooo don't do it!

and for the american readers, we're not tossing in extra 'u's, it's that the lazy yanks keep forgetting to put the proper 'u' in!
