Subject: RE: Tinwhistles - tweekin and tunin

I never did get the hang of English cash, but I trained horses with an Englishwoman in the 1970s, and she did use some financial terminology that I found confusing. In refererence, for example to Colin's comment about a "tuning device," I'd say a pw with 1 1/2 holes would be a "bob whistle," since it's been "bobbed" but actually, wouldn't a bob whistle have MORE pws since a bob is worth more...or am I STILL confused about the English money system???
