hey guys,

what is the letter called, where it is like a fancy "f" but it is curved, and is pronounced like an "s"

I look all over the internet but cannot find it, since i cannot type it!

it is usually used in old english books,

such as, one would write "Chrift" instead of "Christ" but the f would be more curved at the bottom and slightly at an angle

Here you go.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_s

It was never an "f".

yes i know never an f, it just looks like one in a way i didnt know how else to describe

thanks very much!!!



Well, fhit.

Real height or fake height? Because I usually get the feeling that most guys accidentally-on-purpose add an inch or two.  Tongue

If you speed, the Ohio State Troopers will find you.  But on the insurance rates you're off-base, take it from me: 18+ months ago we found out that our insurance doubled overnight moving from OH to PA.

Red will be fine. I will be back in NY in about a month for a visit. I'm happy about that.

It makes your dough for you so you don't have to do the whole knead and rise routine. They can bake it for you too but I think it's better if you bake it in an oven.

Bread is my kryptonite. I have the willpower to resist dessert, but I cannot turn down fresh bread. So actually, this is probably a terrible decision. Tongue

They are! I love them. I loved listening to people struggle to pronounce "gnocchi" when I served at Olive Garden. It was the gift that kept on giving... made each shift a little more fun.

A month ago I suggested that if we were able to push through about 700 posts/day we'd finally have a month cross the 20,000 post milestone.  October disappointed, but November has promise still.  If we average just about 733/day for the rest of this week we can reach the milestone.

Missed it... we ended up with 19158 for the month. But fwiw that's the 2nd highest post total for a month, behind only August 2011. Also, a new record was set for most page views ever at 3,267,629.

December can be that month! With 31 days, we need 645.16 posts a day. If 100 of us commit to posting 7 posts a day at minimum, we will accomplish this.

They are! I love them. I loved listening to people struggle to pronounce "gnocchi" when I served at Olive Garden. It was the gift that kept on giving... made each shift a little more fun.

Um, can I have the, uh, the, uh, guh-nok-key, please?  With extra cheese?  Thanks.

No no no. It's gee-no-chee, with the chee being pronounced twice as long as the other two.

Strange, the Italians I've heard (Sicilian-American town, let me remind you) say it "ny-oooh-key." And "Dawn Key-hoh-tay." (That's British Dawn, not American Dawn- one rhymes with Dorn, the other with Don.)

And I suppose they also say Cath-o-lick, or worse yet Cath-leek, rather than the obviously superior Cat-HALL-eek?

Old Spanish would've pronounced it Kee Show Tay, but I'm not aware of whether the gravitation towards the j would've occurred by Cervantes' time.

Correct- Cath-uh-lick.
