OT:watch your language folks!
|From:||"Renton, Lousie, Mrs" <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
It is interesting to note that the same word can have different
meanings (and connotations) depending which side of the Atlantic
one is on. The most familiar one is "fanny" as in "fanny bag" - quite
innocuous in the States and used freely, but in the UK and here in
SA refers to a portion of female anatomy, so one would use this
word with circumspection!
