RE: What IS he going on about???????

Don't confuse English with American............you have been an American
speaker all your life, not an English speaker......that is why you don't
understand Phil!
I have the same problem when my friends from Birmingham (England ) come to
visit, our languages are related but defiantly not the same!

Hey guys, I am 52 years old, a native English speaker, and have been more
than ten miles away from my birthplace more than once . . . I know what
EACH word means here, but I have NO IDEA WHATSOEVER about what Phil is
reporting here.

Totally, utterly, absolutely clueless in Daytona,
