Now you got me to pick the Cassell off the shelf and look :D
Indeed, it lists both spellings and collectable first.

Personally, I stopped correcting other people's spelling in forums because usually it will only cause heated discussions. Every time I read something particularly painful I just take a deep breath and tell myself: "I'm not responsible for their spelling, they're not my students!" (unless a misspelling results in a cool pun, then I usually can't resist commenting *ggg*).
The bad thing with electricity : it almost always works.

I only mentioned it because it was that way on the sign....I do better at keeping my mouth shut online than I do in person

I'll have a regular latte and an unleaded chocolate soda

On a related note...I am EVER so glad I don't have to go back to Victorian era medical stuff with my old house and buildings...

Irrigation? A syringe type tool to push water into a small wound (body or mouth?). I can't imagine anyone pushing that blunt of a needle into someone. Yikes.

Me too... but I have to say, I will definitely not be hiring the guy whose sign says "Ash Fault" to do my driveway!!!
