Simple may be applied in one sense; Dorna is simply obsessed with income.

Can I send someone over to make sure you are OK?

Time is mean to everybody. I am reminded of this every time I look in the mirror.

Why does Greenwich have two e's and a w when it is pronounced "Grinnitch?"

It isn't. It is pronounced "Green Witch." And by the way, I'll have another pint of Smith Wicks.

I am tired of Fall's fall. When will the leaves leave?

Just call it Autumn and all your problems vanish.

It's pronounced Grennitch, in my neck of the woods. And the mean refers to average.

How much of the man-made junk orbiting our planet still works?

The junk never did work, hence "junk."

Oh, and do we suppose that you pronounce Wor-chester-shire "worst assure?"

Oh No! Again, only in my parts, I am not claiming it is the rule for anyone else; it's Woster Sauce. We drop the "rche" completely.

Who gets their jollies for listening to Nicky Hayden interviewed? Do people really speak like that in Kentucky?

Yes, they do.

But I'm guessing his pronunciation of Worcestershire might be perhaps even better than your own.....he's an all-round champion, that one.

Why am I not asking a question???

You are asking a question, you have just failed to realise your own perspective.


Can I send someone over to help?
