Don't worry I'll be gone by Friday as I cannot get a ADSL or Dial-Up link due to remoteness of where I am moving to.

Regardless of what you may think or say of me and my style this board has indeed been very helpful indeed and has been quite a revelation as to how the British view their European partners. I am very grateful indeed, is a short space of time I have mangaged to accumulate much in the way of valuble information.

I have always assumed that the purpose of such Forums as this is for the interchange of information, views, general banter and the interchange of experiences. I have never considered them to be formal tea parties occupied by elderly Victorian ladies who hand out their disaprobation of other people due to their narrow view of life and their delicate disposition.

So to the lady who posed the question there you have my answer madam. Thank-you for the PM's - you know who you are I'll be seeing some of you in due course no doubt.

Couple of points Muttly, Jean is in fact a bloke ( French type pronunciation) :oops:

And for the benefit of those who think I may have had a hand in stirring things with you, given my past hisory with A. N. Other .... not guilty. I merely gave up reading your posts when they became too long winded.

Incidentally, not yet being of retirement age in UK I certainly can not be classed as an elderly Victorian Lady and given my occupation do not suffer from a delicate constitution :wink:

Glad you have gained some benefit from your time on the forum and good luck as and when you make your move.

Do try this book it's a cracking read and is a great observation on the British.

"Notes from a Small Island" by Bill Bryson
ISBN 0552996009

You'll wonder how we ever got an Empire - "In a fit of absent mindedness some say".

But you'll never doubt how we lost it!

Darjeeling or Earl Grey? :shock:

No LFB, sorry, different subject in mind!! Though the previous answer covered it. Too long a drive to get to the gig once I had finished. Shifts play havoc with a social life. I expect it would have been a brilliant night.

And for Muttlys benefit, have read/listened to the book, I agree. There are some times I am happy to listen to a recording whilst I am in fact working :wink:

Jean sorry for getting your sex wrong. It's rather difficult to pick out male and female writing formats and even more confusing if the writer has gender confusion problems (not you of course).

You see in 21st Century Britain you can call somebody Fred and still be talking to a something nearly female. In fact in 21st Century Britain you could be talking to your sister only to find that she's your mum and your wife too. We're so American these days.........it's so sophistimacated innit. Do you want fries with that?
