The Evangelic Cat

God saved the cat! Actually, A&J saved the cat, almost five years ago, late September. El Pisun was stuck in a drain pipe of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, built between 1816 - 1829, from Cluj city centre.

I don't know if El Pisun was a fan of baroque and neoclassic style or it found out that the church has stones from the Round Bastion incorporated in it. Maybe it was a fellow of George Winkler, the architect of the church or enjoyed the paintings from the sanctuary by Johannn Gentiluomo.

Or maybe it was just a melomaniac and during an organ concert it dripped in the pipe.

I'm pretty sure that after being saved El Pisun followed the words scratched on the facade of the church: "PIETATI".

    The Commonwealth demands the death of the second L in TRAVALLER for the good of the English language.
    Long live the Queen!

  2. Dear Anonymous Grammar Natzi,

    Let me kindly remind you about the doubled consonants in British English. The British English doubling is required for all inflections (-ed, -ing, -er, -est) and for the noun suffixes -er and -or. Therefore, British English usage is counsellor, cruellest, modelling, quarrelled, signalling, traveller, and travelling. Americans usually use counselor, cruelest, modeling, quarreled, signaling, traveler, and traveling.

    So, for the good of the English language and for the Queen, the second L will remain there.
