  1. I love others’ accents, also. Interesting – what you mentioned about not being able to hear your accent when you were surrounded by people without the same one. I find it’s also interesting that people don’t seem to lose their accents over the years even when they move permanently to a new country. You would think it would be a gradual change but it seems to be that whatever you learned while you were growing up is what you keep for the rest of your life. Unfortunately for us Canadians, we are said to have no accent, just a flat, dull manner of speaking! (sob) (Except Newfoundlanders and Cape Bretoners, in case Bobbi is reading :))

    • Hi Jo.
      Canadians certainly do have an accent but it is just a little smoother than some American accents and you pronounce ou more like the Scottish. In fact having travelled a bit I find that in English speaking countries it is mainly the sound of the vowels that make the difference to the way we sound. I remember going ice skating with the kids once when I first moved to Washington state and the girl getting our skates for us said to me “I love your accent, I wish I had an accent”. She was most pleased to know that she did in fact have an American accent and I was most amused with the whole conversation.

  2. I feel so honoured that not one, but two, of my comments have appeared in your favourite five this week. When writing some comments this week I was thinking, I really should spend some time writing my blog instead of just reading and commenting on 365 Less Things, but your blog is so interesting and inspiring I just can’t resist.

    • Hi Isabella,
      thank you for spending time with us everyday and adding your voice to the conversation here at 365lessthings. Two of your comments made the favourite five this week because they were both great comments and one of them may end up as inspiration for a post this week. So keep it coming, you are not just having your say you are helping others.

  3. Affogato . . . I’ll have to look that up. I don’t know what it is. As you know, I love the link to Zinger. What a great way of looking at gifts – both the giving and the receiving.

    • Hi Cindy,
      an Affogato is a scoop of ice-cream with a shot of espresso on the side. You pour the coffee over the ice-cream and enjoy. A spoon is essential for this combination or dessert and caffeine hit delight. I had a chocolate affogato this week which consisted of a scoop of icecream with a hot chocolate shot. I bought vanilla ice-cream this week and am going to try to create my on chocolate affogato with an easy chocolate sauce recipe I have.
