    I admit that your spelling of many words is more practical than British English, which we use!

    The old joke is that after the War of Independence Americans stopped using the extra "u" in many English words to make it clear they wanted "U", as in the British, out of Here. Being a half Brit, who lived in the U.K. for awhile, I alternate between to the two spelling styles to equally offend everyone...
