Actually, here in Blighty a pint of water weighs a pound and a quarter.
US pint is 16 fluid ounces and a GB one is 20.

One picks strawberries by the quart in these parts, and liquid pints and quarts aren't the same measurement as fruit pints and quarts.

Dry and liquid measurement are not same. IIRC a pt. of honey weights 24 oz.

Two from this week.

One in Haworth - a First Aid trip from the wonderful Limey, which I need to write up.
She spotted it before I did, but I wasn't very switched on that day.
Shame, because the food in that place was excellent.

No, the top one was a very good independent café/ eaterie in Haworth.
I considered bearing all [sic] but decided Limey didn't need to see it again.

It was the sanitry message which was the HIExpress.

Thank you for the clarification, but I think you should still follow their instructions.

Red faces as Transport for London misname Walthamstow station after revamp

Chaotic rebranding sees station named Waltamstow on new signs at key transport hub



With the Victoria Line having run through Walthamstow for 47 years, one would have hoped that Transport for London would have known how to spell the station’s name correctly.

But clearly not.

The renovation work which saw the station be renamed went rather awry with Walthamstow Station becoming Waltamstow Central.

Where the “h” went is a matter of conjecture, but it was not how London’s transport chiefs wanted to mark the handing over a route through the key hub in the north east of the capital by London Overground.

It did not take long for the handful of signs to be the butt of humour from sharp-eyed London commuters, who took to Twitter to record their disgust.

“These days if you make a mistake it can be spread all over the world on social media, so they have to take it down. It makes them look like idiots,” James Clark, 64, told the Waltham Forest Guardian.

Handful of signs? That sounds expensive to change.
The obvious solution is for Walthamstow to change it's name to Waltamstow. Problem solved...

for Transport for London.

That was one of two stations I could go home via when I lived in London.
Take it down?
Take it down???
I'd have had them in the bloody stocks for that!

And that's me being nice, because they should have been chained up and left to drown at Blackwall. So don't say I'm not reasonable.

For some Brits, it seems an "H" makes a "ell" of a difference.
