I edit this post to add the common name for the French "losange" is rhomb, rhombus or lozenge.
However the baseball fields is well named diamond.
Let me also add that -as I leaned it a few seconds ago- an old French word was "rhombe".

Hi everyone have searched for you that idiom origin.
 Stony Stratford was an important stopping-off point for mail and passenger coaches travelling between London and the North of England. This coaching history is the source of the supposed origin of the phrase 'cock and bull story'.
English Idioms 3 - Page 3 CockThe Cock and the Bull were two of the main coaching inns in the town and the banter and rivalry between groups of travellers is said to have resulted in exaggerated and fanciful stories, which became known as 'cock and bull stories'. The two hostelries did, and still do, exist.
interesting isn't it ?

Medicine (not "Medecine") Vocabulary in English. "Band-Aid" is a trademark. The generic term is bandage, but "band-aid" is often used colloquially.

Comma Rules in English. These vary a bit by region and style—Rule 1 specifies the so-called "Oxford comma," which not all writers use—but they're basically sound.

Thanks Gérard for teaching us the Oxford comma I didn't know !
The 'Oxford comma' is an optional comma before the word 'and' at the end of a list:
We sell books, videos, and magazines.
It's known as the Oxford comma because it was traditionally used by printers, readers, and editors at Oxford University Press.  Not all writers and publishers use it, but it can clarify the meaning of a sentence when the items in a list are not single words:
