"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

A fun book for anyone really interested in accents, but I've posted it here because their website gives you the chance to listen to and record the word "potato".

    Do you pronounce 'spud' like 'potato' @mheredge? I'm imagining that.

    :)

    Spud is a British colloquial name for a potato.

    In the services (army, navy), peeling the spuds was jankers - punishment duty.
