But can you tell that the person who titled the picture isn't Canadian?

I looked at the pic, but I'm not sure what you might be referring to.

They didn't add the 'u' in Harbor. Could have been a spelling error though.

MS doesn't have it adjusted for the few words that Canada and the U.S. spell differently?

Me too, I liked the picture and the picture next to it of the plane in the harbor.

We don't see planes like that here and to see the ship and the mountains in the same pictures is pretty neat.

Bootz, I gotta tell you that you are way more than welcome.

Every once in awhile someone comes along (a youngster) who actually asks for advice, and then listens to it. Well, you are the once in awhile, so I'm perfectly willing to help out in any way that I can. I only wish that there were more folks like you on the website.

I have my money on you reaching a very successful conclusion to the work you're doing right now. I'll be the first to want to see the final product. I just know it is going to be excellent.

Staring me right in the face and I didn't even notice it. I guess I'm so used to seeing both spellings.

I better not let you catch me out like that again!

It's odd the things we notice, isn't it?

That's just everyday life around here.

There is a whole fleet of floatplanes which operate out of the harbOur at Nanaimo. Most zip back and forth to Vancouver...a flight which takes only a few minutes.

I suppose if were visiting Michigan, or Tennessee, or heaven forbid points even further east, I would be equally impressed.

AFAIK it has both the American and Canadian spellings, so you can set if for either. Because mine was a Canadian sale, it uses the more correct Canadian spellings. (I can hear it now...!!!)

That's one of the great things about traveling is seeing the way things are done differently in other parts of the world.

My sister's friend had family visiting here from Arizona. They couldn't get over the fact that they couldn't see the other side of Lake Michigan from where they were standing on the beach.

Since it's all English, how are the words spelled in England? Would they agree with Canadians or Americans?
