Sorry Paul, that's what's know as a half rhyme...but I can see where you're coming from. That's the teacher in me coming out again I'm sorry to say!

That's interesting Marjorie :)

Chiller doesn't rhyme with silver Paul. It ends in 'iller' and rhymes with other words ending in 'iller' e.g. filler, killer etc :)

I wonder if Paul meant CHILVER ... an Old English word for a newborn ewe lamb.

I meant chiller....the silly iPad changed it! Yes, I thought it was a farming or animal term Shirley!
