We do have farm yards but they don't usually have lawns.

I can't believe I missed that! Must have been one of the times I should have been leaving to go somewhere but couldn't tear muself away from here. I don't think you'd find conemned if you tried to look it up.

Whilst looking up Cockney Rhyming Slang, I found another webite with US/Uk English and Vice Versa
I'm still discovering new things.
I had always thought that the film "Airplane" was a joke spelling - I didn't realise it was real.
I hadn't realised that Whisky was spelt like Irish Whiskey, exclusively.
I was always hugely irritated by the (rather meaningless phrase) "Happy Holidays". I didn't realise that Americans don't take holidays except when they are Bank Holidays.
I didn't know what a shoestring was, which is strange as we are quite happy about doing things on a shoestring.
