Please people, it shouldn't be hard to peddle the difference between peddle, pedal and paddle! At least in the context of this forum!
Peddle means to put forward, sell or market
Pedal means to push your feet on pedals to cause movement
Paddle means to cause movement by dipping a hand-held paddle into the water

Please let me know if you need any help with puddle, piddle or poodle :)

Tony, I hope your comment is delivered in a spirit of pedagogy and you're not just peddling pedantry.

It's all in the accent. Some people speak English better then others. :D
One time I listened to a conversation between a man from Mexico speaking English to a man from Ireland, I understood both of them but they couldn't understand each other.
