Twitter Web App : How to save on heating bills bit.ly/3yxTyrW me in Saga Magazine, yours for only £29 for a year with really top journalists contributing Paxman, Susie Dent, Jenni Murray, Kate Humble - oh and me with 3 pages of money.

Twitter Web App : 'Religious' is a false friend in this one - 'sacrilegious' comes from the Latin 'sacrilegus', 'stealer of sacred things', which is made up of 'sacr-', 'sacred', + legere, 'gather'.

Twitter for iPhone : There are many words born from mistakes. I love the fact that ‘cherry’ and ‘pea’ were both mistaken back-formations from ‘cherise’ and ‘pease’, which were wrongly taken to be plural.

Twitter Web App : I love that technically we should be 'fneezing' not 'sneezing'. The 'f' was misread as a long medieval 's'. A 'fneeze' has just the right sound of a blocked nose and a snort.
