I like South America, useful things may be discovered there. Guinea pigs
were introduced here first as a source of food. Runner beans, OTOH, were
first planted for the scarlet flowers.

It is also worth mentioning that both are common myths.

Firstly, it has only a few climate types - a hell of a lot more
than the UK, but many less than the British Empire (over which
the sun never set, natch).

Secondly, most people in the USA don't even leave their vicinity
(which may be physically large, but is often very homogeneous).

One survey I read about some time ago, stated that most Americans marry
someone living within 30 miles of their home town.

Few of these remarks are made AGAINST Janet Baraclough.

Mike Crowe has taken against her and posts insults at almost every
opportunity. These remarks are, to a great extent, making fun of
his obsession.

Yes, Mike, obsession. Please do give it a break.

Well, having discovered that it's possible to travel abroad for more
interesting pursuitss, I can't understand why you never want to do it
again!

Janet

Basically because we can't afford :-(

If it ain't a standard package holiday it costs a lot and that sort of
money is best spent on the garden and steading conversion at the moment.

African safari or Cambodia would be great if the lottery decides to be
kind to me :-)

Ayup mi Duck.....if your brew is only 50 times better than my last (and
final) attempt at Rhubarb wine, then I would rather be locked in a
compartment alone with THAT woman on the Glasgow to Capetown slooow train,
thanks very much !
Mine was so bad it was classed as a WMD by Princess Bliar. Ideal for
cleaning the patio or for a DIY vasectomy though.
No.....real ale or scotch, or nowt !

Don't overlook Europe; wonderful places now accessible on 10 quid
flights from most UK regional airports, use local trains or bus to leave
the main tourist drag (and rates) behind and sort out your own B and B.

In my view, Cloaca Cola (with apologies to Raymond) is drinkable
provided that it is at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit colder than
the ambient temperature. And still liquid.
