And midges get called midgets, and builders call lintels lentils, but however I will bow to the weight of evidence and ask another question...I do seem to have a gift for questions with ambiguous answers though!

What is a Theorbo - a general idea will do, you don't have to get technical! Hint, think music.

I immediately thought of the Star Trek theme. Also Jimmy Page played one. But that is the Theremin.

I have to protest that Hiberno-English has as valid a place in the world as American, Australian or South African English. What the English call a stoat we call a weasel. The Queen would insist that there are no weasels in Ireland, only stoats.

I think we all need a clue about the orbo. Nobody here seems to know what an orbo is.
