Got this little advert in my post box:


I would like to suggest our website for including into your link list, as we make the card models of famous landmarks, including Globe Theater.

Card model of the famous Shakespeare Globe Theater.

Thank you for your time!

Now i wouldn't normally post such blatant commercial activity (especially when they can't spell THEATRE) but I have a very soft spot for paper models of the Globe - a great teaching tool and lots of fun making with students - including older teenagers, who sneer at such baby activities and then get fully absorbed.

It was also, in the days before the internet, a good way to get the basic difference of the Theatre across.

In the days when I had full use of my hands and eyes I used to love making such models - some good birds and castles out there too.

It is all, of course, part of the multi-million spin off of Words, Words, Words.

I think it's an old discussion - whether it should spell "theatre" or "theater":

Some people don't see a joke when it bites them!

There was no correct spelling in Shakespeare's time - and I am the World's worst spela!

(And the difference is really English English vs that trans-Atlantic mutation)
