Must confess I was being lazy with the accent on Pina Colada too, plus in the song he does sing it "pi-nah" rather than "pi-nya" so I blame Rupert, I was copying him
Interesting to read the whole language issue, over here some people will address a lady of a certain age as "Love" or "Lovey" or "Dearie" which drives my mother up the wall as she finds it really patronising especially from anyone a lot younger. Personally I don't mind as long as it's meant in a nice way. Once we went on holiday to the north east of England where women are often addressed as "Pet" which I found utterly charming especially as I adore the Geordie accent you hear up there
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
"Pet"? With all the feminism thing that's going on these days I'm sure someone has to have found it offensive.
Yes. Someone has definitely taken offense. I think it's really sweet when people use these casual terms of endearment to address each other. I like "hon" (Baltimore). And you can tell if it's meant to be patronizing or not.
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
