Hi Folks!

Yeah, people pronouncing it "ur" instead or "air" is a little annoying.
Surprisingly, when I looked it up in the dictionary, it had both
pronunciations listed as correct!  But no one pronounces "error" with the
"ur" sound, ur-or.  Everyone pronounces it "air-or".  So why wouldn't they
automatically pronounce err as "air"?  Maybe it's an east coast-west coast
thing.  Most folks I've run into pronounce it "air".  I am now thoroughly
confused!  The standard condition of a Groo fan!    Take care all.  -Gary G.
