    very good Andrew;

    Shows a language different with words we use. I have to translate some things for my american bird so you might need to translate ause english for the english.

    I don't think that "root means much to us apart from tree plant etc.

    Love Terry

    Oh Cc;

    Most people here know a wheelchair called a Quickie, but it is sometimes used as a bit of the other.

    I always thought that a "Quickie" is a bit insensitive and the wrong name for a wheelchair that only goes 4 mph, (6.43738 Kph, just for Andrew)

    Cc, I have sent you a PM explaining the joke, I hope it helps in the translation.

    Love Terry

    Thanks for translation Terry, didn't know a wheelchair was called a Quickie in your country. Also didn't know your elevators were called lifts, and your subways the tube....thank goodness for Google...and You ! lol

    Believe Terry American women would prefer a Quickie that only goes 4 mph! LOL

    One manufacture uses Quickie, as a name for some of it's models. I had one called a "Salsa Quickie". It just seems insensitive for those of us that can't move around much.

    Don't go around calling all wheelchairs a quickie, or you're end up in trouble.

    Love Terry

    Yeah I can see the insensitivity to the name Terry, I guess the manufactures are trying to convey some form of speed equated with it...but not doing a very good job.

    No worries, Americans wouldn't know what I was talking about if I called a quickie something other then a quickie, and you being Santa know I'm always on the naughty list ...go ahead check it twice you'll see my name there LOL

    Thanks for the info Streetwise. In New York we call it the subway, in New Jersey they call it the train.

    It’s interesting to me how we are all speaking English, but all speaking a different language.
