My first goal!!!!

Hi Thanks  for the new series, excellent, I couldn't waited.
Blimey, such a cute word, I never heard, I didn't know that the British use similar word, is it a slang??? I like it!
Adam is is similar to polish ,,kurcze'' I have checked in dictionary meaning......
I am in Uk 5 years and really I never heard this word...:):):)

Hi Betty,
Glad to hear you enjoyed it!
You can look up 'blimey' in our online dictionary at the right-hand side of the page. It's quite old-fashioned, I don't hear it often either...

oh Phew! Thank youuuuuuuuuuuu so much sir............ despite waiting for a quite long time i clinched my longing indeed i am mighty happy.............i am sure that it'll help me to sharp my wit. Seriously sir i can't explicate my zeal for this series. I dig it too much. And sir i am little bit confused about "They" perhaps it's really tiny problem but i haven't got it my question is Q. can i use "they & them for things like book , cars, animals etc" and what i have to use when i talk about these things like eg - "i had read many articles and some of them were really good " and for birds or animals like "eg -Birds like to fly high in the sky " so can i say "they like to fly high in the sky " is it right or we can use they only for people. Sir i don't want to take your too much time but just a small explanation would be adequate for me. And yeah thanks once again for new episode

Hello Jas Emo Boy,
We're happy that you're happy!
To answer your question, yes, you can use 'they' to refer to objects or animals. Your example sentences are perfect.
