Double What!?!

Firefox has a built-in spelling checker that is generally adequate for what I do. I was blogging day 3 of San Antonio and had occasion to mention the double decker buses in London as a comparison with the trolleys they use in San Antonio.

The word "deckers" was underlined, indicating that it was not understood. I right clicked on it to see what Firefox wanted instead, and apparently they want people to either ride a "double pecker" or a "double dicker" ... hmmm ....

ha ha...everytime I write Manitoba, my spellchecker wants "Mountable". That Bill Gates sure has a sense of humor :-)
