Its a great time for buying model rockets from across the pond.We are nearly getting $2 for our £1.It's a good chance to get some of the kits which ar'nt as available over here in blighty.For example the PML amraam 2 works out at around £35 inc. Air shipping from the U.S. but over here its over £50.Now thats what i call a bargain:) :)

Nuthin's wrong with Cheerios! They kick booty when it comes to cereal! I was just trying to put a play on words for Arthur to see what'd he say.

I don't think you need the "s" on the end.

I say, it's just not cricket, what? Johnny foreigner having a larf at our expressions.

What does make me chuckle is the English accents portrayed in films and TV from over there. It's either BBC/Lord Snooty, Dick van Dyke cockney or something thats probably more Aussie. Apart from that girl in Frasier you never get a REAL accent and there's never an 'Eh up' or a 'sithee' to be heard.

Now even my wife admits, the all time best Brit character in the U.S. has to be Simon from Frasier! He's got to be the most down to earth character I saw in years, being a pub crawling-soccer hooligan.

And what's with all of the cross-accents? Kate Winslet playing an american in Titanic. "Whats-her-name" in Bridget Jones Diary. Kate Beckinsale . . . etc. Can't we find actors/actresses in our own countries?

Oh Great ... so if we're not all Noel Coward soundalikes then we're alcoholic football hooligans :(

BTW - Don't think I've ever met a football hooligan called Simon .. they're usually Gaz or Baz or Daz :D

(or in rugby union they'd be Justin, Timothy, Alexander ? )
