If you’re going to have centrepiece then do it properly…. as Gore Vidal said: ‘Style is knowing who you are, what to say, and not giving a damn!’ So, a 3 maybe 4 metre high Montgolfier is perfect!! I love it!
Now I know that I complain constantly at the US habit of changing nouns to verbs: diary, party, journal. I’ve recently come across a new example that goes the other way: from verb to noun a ‘capture’ – – used frequently in reference to digital photography on redbubble in the form ‘great capture’ Sorry I know language is a ‘living breathing being that changes’ but this I do not like . . . . . .
