Gotcha PeterT.! I thought you'd see the tongue in cheek?:-) No Ethel, but my mother-in-law did sew and Rog still pronounces words strangely. I just made up Ethel and her drops. Sorry, it brings you no closer to a solution. Do you have a link where we can hear it?
Fadac: I used to own a Ford Cortina (English). It was an adventure to drive. Whenever I put it in reverse, I'd have to lift up the carpet, take the plate off of the trannie, stick a screwdriver between the gears and pop it out, so that I could drive forward again! Lotta fun, NOT!
