smiley - cheers for looking over the Entry smiley - smiley

Thanks for the suggestions and so forth, I've sorted all those out, I actually like the sound of Algeria better too, it gives the connotations of a place so far distant from London as New Zealand is from Australia smiley - oksmiley - ta

I was toing and froing with 'was' and 'were; after the Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings trilogy for so long as I thought, now hang on, there's three films, not just one...It reads better 'were', but is it actually grammatically correct? smiley - laugh I know it is, but it did confuse me smiley - smiley

Thanks again smiley - biggrin

Gnomon - time to move on

Just a few tiny changes and this will be ready for update, I think.smiley - smiley

New Zealand is situated the same distance eastwards from Australia as Algeria is from London
-- remove the word "eastwards" here; Algeria is more or less South from London so the analogy is not exact.

Not able to pronouce --> Not able to pronounce

the Kiwis then liked the French slightly less than they did before -- it may be just me, but I'd say "than they had before"

and Bournville Cocoa there are hundreds of recipes -- add a comma after Cocoa
