Pass Me That Dictionary Please! (Or It Is Not Just English Which Is Confusing)
One of my friends posted two photos on one of his websites.  The first was of some apples and pears and the second was a staircase.  (Stairs are known as "Apples and Pears" in Cockney Rhyming Slang.

I was going to try to expand on that theme but with a slight difference.  My intention was to make a kind of "photo phrasebook" using both English and Dutch translations of words (both the words that are spelled and sound the same in both languages and those which are spelled slightly differently but sound exacty the same.

(If you thought "Apples and Pears" was difficult - try a photograph of a settee next to a photo of a bank.  Yes - the Dutch word for settee is "Bank".

I may decide to make a start on the dictionary at some point.
