I've read that there's a drought and that hosepipes are forbidden, except to bathe animals. Is that true, Steve E.?

All true, and nobody told ME! I've been using ours to clean off my shoes lately, as picking up after one's dog has never quite caught on here.

If this is a draught, I'd hate to see the wet season. . .

Jeez. I engage, I engage. I just disagree.

Steve Evil, to make you feel better, it rains here all the time. At least there is spits, here it pours.

England has great culture, architecture, pubs, hot women with cute accents. Enjoy it more. Canada is so yesterday.

A fine thing to say about a nation less than two hundred years old!

England is a horrible place. Which is why he made Scotland so beautiful. To make up for the shitty neighbours ;o)

Just kidding folks. England has some wonderful places and sights.

I live right next to a National Trust park. A great big hill. It's a vast rolling hillside, where sheep tend to graze. Accross the valley you can see the country home where Disraeli lived. I can wander for hours, days even, along the public footpaths and bridleways through landscapes that inspired The Hobbit and The Wind in the Willows. I can fall asleep under a tree overlooking farmer's field and to the sound of rustling wheat.

But I always have to return to the lousy bus station!

(And it's true: it doesn't compare to Scotland!)

Well you know it's not like you have to only pick one.

Mr Barber wrote, over at the Other Place -

We're back from our most recent sojourn. Some utterly wonderful events which I will detail elsewhere, but if life, like a novel, is a series of experiences we added a full chapter.

Sure like to hear more about that. Let us know where elsewhere is. I'm overdue for an adventure myself. Perhaps you'll inspire me.
