Re: the 7 days quiz. What Australian gift caused confusion for Prince Philip? By all accounts, it doesn't take much to cause confusion for Prince Philip!

Something tells me this TV show will not be quite as popular as Dancing with the Stars.
David Richerby, Liverpool, UK

Paul (Thursday's letters">Thursday's letters) and Sharon (Wednesday's letters), and what about the girl on TV who advertises "chocclitt" for a well known swiss chocOlate makers? Not to mention the now almost universal mispronunciation of harassed as "harASSed" rather than "HARassed"? (Blame Michael Crawford for that)? I'll get my jacket - or should that be jackETTE?
Paul Morris, Cheriton Fitzpaine, Devon

Ian (Thursday's letters), what a lightweight you are! A proper breakfast is Corn Flakes (gold top milk); pancakes (with syrup and/or lemon/sugar), waffles, boiled eggs with soldiers (or "peacekeepers" if you're a pacifist); kedgeree; sausage (Lincolnshire and Cumberland), back and streaky bacon (smoked and unsmoked), gammon steak, devilled kidneys, fried black pudding, fried mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, hash browns (or potato rosti), fried eggs (sunny side up), baked beans, fried bread; with tea and orange juice (counts towards your five a day); then brown and white toast with a selection of jams and marmalades; croissant, pain au chocolat, hams, a selection of cheeses, a basket of fruit, crispbreads, french toasts with chocolate spread, and poptarts. If you get hungry between this and elevenses, a large pack of pork scratchings and a chocolate bar should see you through.
James Rigby

Ian (Thursday's letters), Hot chocolate clearly not a breakfast drink, I am astonished that there is no mention of tea!!
Mel, London

Just a reminder to everyone that the clocks go back this weekend meaning it is officially the end of summer. You need to put away the muesli, stop with the salads and pack the short pyjamas into the loft, and break out the porridge oats, soups and long pyjamas. I'll put away my summer jacket and get my duffel coat.
Basil Long, Nottingham
