    So I c. How odd that neither spelling draws the red squiggly line of rebuke on my laptop.

    Could this be another case in which English has decided to lay down and die?

            I don't comment on how you heathens and Yankees speak. I ask only for correct spelling and grammar.

              Obviously, the California red squiggly is more judgmental. Mine did not show it as misspelled either.

                Really? Google has regional spellcheck?

                    These are the same folks that arranged our Galapagos and Andes Mountain foray Midsized ship for an Antarctic crossing at just below 300 feet. Limited to 112 passengers with 75 member crew.

                    If you see the Nisshin Maru... take a shot at it.
                    The year's at the spring
                    And day's at the morn;
                    Morning's at seven;
                    The hill-side's dew-pearled;
                    The lark's on the wing;
                    The snail's on the thorn:
                    God's in his heaven—
                    All's right with the world!
