Re: This Will Never Happen Again

well as you are in Yankee Land it could mean anything, but take what I wrote and it can happen twice this year as you have written the Date US style, then come back to Britain and have another shot

Re: This Will Never Happen Again

thought 8th of July must have been a typo there - must be an american on here then?
I see some confused looks on the faces of american folk when it comes to dates written down - why they do their dates in a different sequence I don't know

Just to confuse things the Americans are starting to use the UK method on some paperwork.  Most entry paperwork is now done dd/mm/yyyy.

It's only fair, as we adopted their definition of 'billion' (1000 × million) over our original million × million.  Wink
