That's good advice, as our Welsh neighbours are especially profligate with their use. Llewellyns and Llangollen are just ordinary examples of this. (forgive me, for information only!) Mind you, they're nearly as bad with Ds and Fs...
One of my favourite things in the world begins with an L and contains two....Lagavulin of course

I'm a little surprised nobody has mentioned the FIFA World Cup yet. So I thought I would mention it now before the USA and England get knocked out in the next round

Chili only has one L in it, when referring to peppers or the stew.

Chilly has two Ls in it when referring to cold weather.

We need to be conservative with our Ls, as excessive usage will leave us with a shortage of them.
Over here, chilli is always spelt with two L's. I suspect it has to do with the original spelling of the word, chīlli.

So is Hendrix's Voodoo Chile about a really hot pepper?

No, it’s about folk religion in South America!! Everybody knows that…

That day I was having dinner and got to look around. The trip is for work. My turn was this week and my colleagues went other weeks. I was lucky because their National day holiday is tomorrow so I got several souvenirs related to the celebrations. Going home tonight. Still not sure what time the car was booked to get me from the hotel. Flight is on one of the buses at 0255. Good time of day to efficiently get off the ground here. Came on a 787. Pleasant ride except for the lady next to me who did not fit in her seat. At after we got going she moved towards her husband on the other side of her centre seat. The cabin crew member who sat near my seat had a look on her face all the time like she did not want to be there.

First time I came to this region.

I had to re-fill my "l" key on my keyboard, it was empty.
That sounds like a bothersome problem.

Wasn’t there some game against the whales that might lead to celebration

The people I met this week talked about other teams.
