Hmm I just checked it and it is in US english and it was tripping on the brit spellings, it has been a long time since I tried it, since my old computer, perhaps that one was set different. I prefer that my new computer makes sure I spell like an american...

You can put it on UK English, if you'd prefer you spell all of the words in your colourful vocabulary with your favourite letter... u! (Notice the subtle tribute)

That is my philosophy and I usually do not get sick. Though I have now had and fought off the flu twice (once a few years ago and then last year), might try and get my butt in for a flu shot this year, I never remember to do so even though it is a good thing to do...

Oh and welcome to the forum Alex . I have family in Michigan, very pretty state !

They live by Fenton I think it is called, between Lansing and Detroit somewhere. Her garden is bigger than mine was so I was very jealous when I visited .

Your body has had to fight off two different strains of the flu. (Of course, you probbly knew that). I've never had the flu (knock on wood), but it's sort of because I'm really crazy about making sure I don't get sick. Every day I clean all the door knobs in my dorm with Clorox wipes and when I go to the school cafeteria I use a little hand sanitizer before I eat because I have NO IDEA who last touched the table, the bench, the trays, or anything else I might brush up agaisnt. After suffering grade-wise last semester from being sick, I've taken care to not have a repeat incident. Granted I love microbes, but I also love a high GPA.

I have family in Michigan too. Of course the last time I went, I was about 5, so I remember very little of the scenery.
