There has been a lot of coverage in the newspapers recently describing spelling as one of the most -important skills needed today and how all of the influences of text (and or what is called these days ‘internet’)speak and auto corrections in mobile apps is changing our spelling and grammar for the worse.

Obviously when working for the Brighton Argus a newspaper based in sunny Brighton, Sussex, England spelling isn’t really very important at all.

Spelling Is The Most Important Skill Needed When Working For The Brighton Argus

Although this is probably not the best place to mention my translator’s brother Roger who was a wonderful person and excellent brother I am going too anyway, because Roger was a journalist of some repute and hated poor grammar and terrible spelling. Nine years ago today Roger decided to prompt an obituary on the cover of the regional newspaper he was working for at the time.

So if you do drink do please raise a glass to Roger Woodcock because quite simply if he was here now he would knock a few back with you, ladies and gentlemen I give you the one and only RW.

Rog

We will never see his like again!

Someone sent me one of those ‘funny’ photographs. You know the ones which usually travel around the internet not making people laugh but making animals and more importantly Cats look a bit dim.

Sadly I have a feeling that this one is not only rather amusing it is also funny – darn it!

It’s a shame that the originator didn’t pay a little more attention to the design and use of typography but that probably is just my opinion and most humans who see this in their mail don’t think about things like that!

Having said that I though I would share it with you.

Lionel the talented (some say, and some say showoff) ‘swimming Cat’ has prematurely called off his attempt to become the first Cat to swim the English Channel after just beginning his first training session in the Summerfields pool and cafĂ© Hastings Sussex.

In a specially arranged training session, squeezed in between the under 10’s Cygnet Club’s and the over 60’s water aerobics, Lionel – the talented swimming Cat – had his first taste of a body of water bigger than his water dish and realised that he should apply his “enormous” talents to elsewhere.

It is not known as yet whether Lionel will be keeping his byline – ‘the talented swimming Cat’ although it does sound likely.

English Channel Attempt

If any organisation needs a special envoy or ambassador who has a marvellous opinion of himself that totally outstrips his abilities then do contact Lionel through this blog or directly to The Cat and we will pass on your details.

Obviously we have already been contacted by the ridiculous duke of York’s ’employer’ the UKTrade and Investment (UKTI) about an unpaid ambassador’s position. While being unpaid the expenses are pretty good and equate to around 4 million UK pounds a year, with obvious benefits such as first class travel, top quality hotels and the rest.

When contacted a senior government spin doctor said that “the only qualifications you have to have are to be arrogant, have a delusional belief in your own abilities and intelligence, a great sense of humour and know what’s best for British companies even if they don’t know. And of course if you have a German family background that wouldn’t hurt,” but quickly added that Lionel should “get in quick” because the PM, DC has been changing his mind a lot recently and the opening might close soon – “who knows.” He sighed.
