Film 4 announcer. The phrase is derring do.

However, as it is from Middle English and meant 'daring to do', I can almost see my way to letting it go.

No, actually. I can't grin

It's no wonder so many people have crap grammar, when the tv announcers get it wrong.

I was just getting on my high horse to correct your spelling.

So, now I've climbed back down again.

Definitely Derring Do. Tweet them, or something.

grin Sanity, Pookamoo.

Stealth, I would, but my Twitter account was opened so long ago and has been so little used that I can't for the life of me remember my password. TBH, I don't even want to remember my password.

Daring do bugs me too. Also 'he did it off his own back' instead of 'bat'.

My granny used to say 'calm as a milk pond'!
