Ah, that is where using the spell checker drives me out of my mind.  All my words are the British spelled way and the spell checker is American.  So, every time it encounters my British spelling it points it out.  I add the British to my computer spell checker dictionary and maybe just one day, maybe years down the road, I will have encountered all the words that can be spelled so differently.

The ones that stick out in my head right now are:

organized, organised
favourite, favorite
cheque, check
honour, honor

and the list goes on.  Have a sweet day,  Cindi.
There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service
