Is there anybody here? either on "vacation" or "staycation", which in English is on holiday either at home or abroad.

Wherever you are enjoy your holiday but please, please, avoid the dreadful crude American slang of vacation and staycation, both of which are not within the English language or grammar but American slang which is destroying the English language.

In a local dialect: I'm onmiolliday, wi mi spit, truck an swimming drawers.

Hope I catch some crabs, but not from the local wimmin.

Happy holidays.

I'm very surprised that nobody on here has posted that yesterday, 13th August, was one of the days in 1917 when an apparition of Our Lady of Fatima was seen by the three children at the Cova da Ira, Fatima, Portugal.

Kind regards,

Thanks Nightbar. Good of the Royal Navy to rescue Richard Branson but it would have been better if they saved the boat and left him behind.
