Hi all

We have been discussing the mnemonics we learnt at school and from our parents such as;

Thirty days hath September,

April, June and November;

February has twenty eight alone

All the rest have thirty-one

Except in Leap Year, that's the time

When February's Days are twenty-nine

and the one for the colours on resistors

Butler Butler Rave or Yell Go Back Via Graylingwell

Can anyone sugest any more?
