Does Jan Elliot homeschool? (Stone Soup Comic strip)


Recommended Posts

I just looked it up because I know I started a popular thread a few years ago with kerfuffle in the title and have used the word throughout my life. It is a British word and comes from an originally Scottish word. I don't know if my mother may have used it; my parents were married and lived in England for a number of years and my brother was born there and lived there until he was about 3 when they immigrated to the US. I do know that I do use some British-ism from my mom - like the pronounciation and spelling of aluminium. (Oh and I just looked up and that is the International recognized way of spelling it).
