"England and America are two countries
divided by a common language."

Don't you take too much notice of that Setanta character. He may be humourous(kinda), but he has a bit of a dodgy hold on our language.

Is this the common language that divides England and America?

Hebba. I was born in Manchester. Brought up on the Best Law Charlton etc team. Family spread around the globe, I got as far as London. But we are all Red Mancs apart from a certain uncle who is the blue sheep of the family (and we don't talk about him especially after recent results).

Setanta. Have you seen south park the movie? Even if you haven't Who are the Baldwins?

Margo Humourous? Surely you mean Houmourous? whatever, agree the yanks cant spell. And neither can I after a few beers, which you might just see later, because I am just going out ...

Anyway no more funny goings on at the Palace today, just the usual day to day stories of Royal Dysfunctionality. (Prince Charles needs a new toothpaste squeezer btw. Its a great job, great perks excellent prospects...)

No, i've not see that movie, Boss. The only reference to Baldwins i could make would be to brothers who are actors (or alleged to be actors) . . .

Your avatar is my favorite of any present. Is he a Germanic super hero?

Re Dowd...my pleasure. She's my favorite columnist in the North American press, not least for who she gets in her sights.

Mad!? When I'm mad, my glands act up and produce excess spittle which hummingbirds harvest. None of this is presently occuring.

ceratinly a super hero, since it's me. Smile

No, honestly, its a French (precisely: Bretonic) toy-souvenir, a sailor.
And since I wear glasses, have a moustache, have made the German navy more pleasant through my appearance and love Britanny - so I created it. :wink:

He's disguised as a piece of danish modern furniture, so he can look up ladies' skirts . . .

And looking up ladies skirts is a fine motivation, why else would a woman wear a skirt? But which peice of furniture would it be? Sorry to be so nitpicky about this, but ..........I really don't know why I want to know........I guess I'll have to talk to my analyst about it on Monday, but for now.........which peice?

Well spotted, gnilleps was never my strong point forwards or backwards.

Hebba glad you had a good time in Manchester. Agree the IRA probably did the city a favour in the long run. Last time I was there the centre was all re built and looking very smart for the Commonwealth Games. But there are still some dodgy bits! Like anywhere else I suppose. But nothing like 150 yrs ago when parts of Manchester and Salford inspired Marx (or was it Engels?) to write about "the Condition of the Working Class in England".

Now I just know Walter will be back in a flash with the correct reference.

I thought Copenhagen was a really good place, but a little ch ch ch iilllly. They were just finishing the bridge to Sweden when we were there. Took the high speed ferry to Malmo. Ate some Swedish dumplings, which I have nearly digested.
