I-er-land. But according to AppleScruffJunior, it's actually more like Areland. Light and fluffy, like sheep's wool and Irish accents... or something like that. I couldn't find the post. It's somewhere in the Pet Peeves thread. 

Only the Irish can say it properly!  I always say it like you.  I think you should say things in your own accent unless everyone around you agrees it is actually 'wrong'.  My Mum (having spent a long time living in Spain) always chuckles at my pronunciation of 'Paella' (me sounding the double L's in the English way) but I think if you are going to be a stickler for pronunciation of foreign words then you've got to do them all.  I notice she doesn't pronounce Murcia in the correct way 🙂  Of course, being a correct son I haven't mentioned this, especially since even at 85 she is a demon at Scrabble and always wipes the floor with me!  Growing up, she would always say 'It's different from, not different to' and a few others.

And I'm going to go on saying I-er-land too until I can speak properly like AppleScruffJunior!

Well, I hope my comments didn't come out the wrong way!  I love accents of all types.  Everyone's got one and everyone should preserve the accent their Mother/Father/friends gave them 🙂

Oh not at all jolly, good user, no insult was taken.

 

I actually speak with an East Anglian accent, what you hear on AD40's videos is fake...or is it?

Gardening can be an enjoyable experience.

Don't go out into a wild garden wearing shorts.

Loosing skin off your finger is damn painful.

Wear a gloves next time 

Always a good thing in the garden - learnt that when a friend was bitten by a nasty white-tail spider in the garden.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

You can assault people by throwing jars of jam at them.

I hope the jars are empty. Waste of jam otherwise plus you would be recycling which is very planet friendly.

Jam is a renewable resource that is biodegrade. If anything throwing the jars would be worse for the planet depending on what the jar is made of. Jam would be better to put in a compost heap instead of recycled

I meant eat the jam then recycle the glass jars. Why would you throw jam away?
