    Is thumbs up something naughty in the U.K.?
    Also, I write UK and it always changes it to U.K. So not sure which is correct but just live with it. :)

    I have enough corrections to make as it is....seems my words run together, a letter is missing...lots of errors lately
    None of which are my fault. :)

    Oh....forgot "fanny, that's a different meaning.

    Thumbs up is good in the UK has been for many a long year, I give the sign often
    If its changed (like bad meaning good) I don't know about it and I won't change me ways anyway :p

    It's funny how such things work. I have noticed that my spellchecker now tells me that I am wrong when I add periods to the abbreviation for the United States -- U.S. telling me that is is more commonly used without the periods -- US

    @Holly Saunders, yes, I know it's the United Kingdom and I've always written it UK but it always autocorrects to U.K. Pain in the B. U.T. T. :)

    If you see me writing it U.K. ....I do know the right way, I just didn't catch it because I'm lazy and seldom proofread.

    I do edit after the fact but only if it's really obvious.

    I do know that, Honey.....it's funny though that here it's a nice way of saying a woman's butt or a name of a type of purse...fanny pack.
