Hi Mark

Exactly 10 years ago today, in Blenheim (Marlborough NZ) you broke the news
to me that my yachting hero Sir Peter Blake had been killed in Brazil.

It seems like yesterday

Indeed, Comrade Champers Pinko. Let's make a point of toasting his
memory in the not too distant future.

to put this "on topic" I do believe that a glass or two of Calaveras
County wine is in order.

Forgive this European, but is 'In memorium' American English? That gave me
a start... :-)

It is certainly American in usage, but coming from our good mate from
down under, I would surmise it is fairly universal despite its Latin
look, for" in memory of".

Oh - American Latin? Here we stick to European Latin and say 'In
memoriam'...

What Anders is referring to, I suspect, is that proper Latin would have
it as "in memoriAm" not "in memoriUm," but as you say it's a common
error in the English-speaking world. Using this high tech tool:

http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=in+memorium&word2=in+me moriam

we can see that the proper term outnumbers the improper one 4.6 million
to 0.2 million on the Web, which I suppose is reassuring.

No, it is a misspelling here too.

I found this amazing enough to try to find an explanation... It seems to me
that meanings are different in this way:

In memorium= In the mind
In memoriam= In memory of (Keeping in the mind)

Anybody knowing a latin expert?

Wow - what did I start - the most discussed thread in ages - and not a
word about wine.

OK - I plead guilty - memorium / memoriam - I goofed - no excuse, perhaps I
was looking at this keyboard through an 18 year old Highland Park (no ice -
just a tiny splash of water!)

However, my intention was to remind Mark of that day in 2001 which shocked
this tiny nation to the core.

Sir Peter Blake was one of my heroes. I was fortunate to have sailed with
him (albeit a short, overnighter down the coast of Northland)

If you want to see his inspiring story, this 90min video tells of his life
and achievements.
