    Wooder not wah-ter

    Down the shore not down to the shore or to the beach :eek:

    Tal not tow-el

    Febuary not February

    LANK-kes-ter not Lan-KAST-er

    Iggles not Eagles

    Eggs-it not ex-it


    :D

    It'd be great if folks would just use the "its/it's", "there/their/they're" and the "your/you're" correctly.
