If you'll forgive me for taking a break from my normal witticisms, I'd just like to say how much I enjoyed your pictures of wildlife at Kew Gardens. It was one of the most beautiful things I've seen for a long time, and I encourage all Monitorites to take a few minutes to have a look.

I managed a score of 0/7 on the Sun headlines quiz, and I really tried. It was only after finishing however, that I realised how happy that made me. My unblemished ignorance means that I am entirely out of kilter with the Sun and all it stands for. Either that or I'm so eager to turn the front page that I fail to pay any attention to the headlines...

For once I'm soooo glad to have got 0 in a 7 questions quiz.
They're back! Can somebody please inform the BBC's science department that chromosomes are not made of sausages?

Objecting to Thought for the Day!? It's not as if the media is short of non-religious opinion. I'm becoming more and more ashamed to be an atheist.

Ergonomics is a made-up word, is it? What, you mean unlike all those other words which occur naturally in underground seams?
According to the map in Driver lost on 600km shops trip, the wrong turn only occurred after around 200km... which is still a long way to travel to pop down to the shops.

Marie (Tuesday letters), all dictionaries that I have consulted say roofs is the plural of roof, as does a friend of mine who is an English teacher. This does mean that the BBC is wrong though.

I went to school in the 1950s and was taught the plural of roof is rooves, just as the plural of hoof is hooves. The addition of just an "s" appears to be either due to American influences or laziness. Frequent incorrect use eventually becomes accepted, just like supercede is now accepted as an alternative spelling of supersede.

What about leaf? Is it leafs or leaves? My wife pronounces them "roofs" and "leafs" which drives me mad, because they are surely correctly pronounced "rooves" and "leaves", but how are they spelt?

Re Meg and Allan J's letters, I experienced difficulties with the site over the weekend. Page was loading but only header and footer was visible, no content.
You wanted an explanation of missing items. Explanations I cannot give, but facts I can: Today I am able to see Your Letters in Magazine Monitor, but Paper Monitor still comes up with a blank screen; 10 things' gives me Your Letters again; and WBQ and Web Monitor are blank, though the text is available via the "text only" button. Something weird is going on...

Allan J, Meg - you're not alone, I don't get the Monitor either, it's to do with Internet Explorer 8. You have to run it in compatibility view to see everything properly.

In IE, I can see the header, then a big bit of empty space, then the footer, then more empty space. This is since about Thursday. In Firefox, I can see it all fine. What happened on Thursday?
