I think most of know and understand basic mathematics 

I like the program but then I just love Monty, he's my hero, wish someone would come and fulfill my dreams in the garden.

Lyn are you referring to my pompous verbosity - which I blame on the demon drink - or my gardening query?

As my gardening skills are better than my grasp of English grammar, I am definitely referring to you gardening query.

Does anyone else get annoyed when you here 2 times what's the matter with the word twice??

I could maybe get a bit annoyed when people don't know the difference between here and hear.

Language evolves. That includes,grammar,spelling,pronunciation,usage etc.

The more we are able to manipulate these, the more control we have over what is understood by the person with whom we are communicating. But this only works if that person has knowledge of the same rules and conventions (whether they choose to accept them or not).

lWhat matters should be what a person has,to say not how they say it, but this is rarely the case..

On a gardening note: is hobby-horse manure good for roses?

I find bull s**t works well.

to the previous poster who said a piece of wood 2x4 should be called 4 by 2, surely that should be 4 be 2?

Layering is good, if you just score, with a blade  a little bit of the bark, then pin down it will root, failing that, just poke them in a pot, I do them anytime, doesn't seem to make much difference.
