    Fascinating! I shall look up the entomology of 'butt' (UK & US) in the Starfleet database.
    Keep on barrelling along Tora.
    I'm off to get my ears groomed now.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    BTW; for the last 68 years it's been the Queen's English!๐Ÿ˜

    Doug,
    ...a rain barrel, what else would we call it? It is not exactly like we use the King's English... or for that matter know what it is! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Hi Tora,
    I realise that 'butt' has a totally different connotation (๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ˆ) on your side of the pond!
    So what do you guys call such a barrel for collecting rain water?
    Spent some time in the States a while back; New york, Long Island, Buffalo, Boston, Philly, Chicago, Florida (just in time for Hurricane Andrew ๐ŸŒช๏ธ๐ŸŒฉ๏ธ๐ŸŒง๏ธ) ...
    But 'butts' (water or otherwise) weren't exactly the topic of conversation!! ๐Ÿ™‰
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Tora,
    A water Butt on this side of the pond is a receptacle for waste water, such as that draining off a roof. In days of yore, a wooden barrel was used, that's what my grandmother had, but these days a plastic creation, sort of oil drum shape, takes it's place. Hope that's clear.

    OK, my excuse is from being across the pond, but what is a water butt? Aside from that it looks perfect!
