yes, I'm on a PC. There is no 'preferences' on Google groups where
you can say 'text wrap' NB is the only one, apparently who has a
problem. I see my posts look like everyone elses.

You didn't have any problem adding returns in that message.

Pecan pie and return - Two ideas that don't much go together. I don't
think I've ever returned a pecan pie.

So is it "pea-can" or "peh-kahn"? As long as it's in a pie or ground
into nut butter, who cares.

A Pee-can is something a trucker keeps under the seat.
A peh-kahn is a something you eat, if the squirrels don't find it first.

Nope.... That is a **** bottle

I was close to 50 before I ever heard that pronunciation.

I suppose you could use a bottle, but it's easier to fling it out the
window when you're done if you use a can. HTH

I've lived in the South all my life and 'peh-kahn' is the way folks
around here pronounce it. Pee-can is the way television personalities
pronounce it.

Yep, that is what I grew up with too, living in VA.


The Merriam Webster online dictinary gives three different
pronunciations, pi-kahn, pi-kan, pee-kan.

Then it's pi-kahn, here in Maryland.

This post line wrapped just fine. Are you on the same computer as
before? I've only noticed two that did not wrap and it was just
today. I don't read every single post of yours because they often
have a reply already. I just skip to that since most people can't be
bothered to trim and I'll get your entire post anyway.

The reason even your posts that didn't line wrap come out looking okay
is that they are line wrapped on reply. At least that's what my news
reader does.

I've never thought about how I say it except pee-kan drives me nuts,
so I don't say it that way. I guess I say pi-kahn too.
