"I love the smell of napalm in the morning" or is it semtex, risin or something else horrible.

The Lake District
The Yorkshire Dales
Devon
The Cotswolds
The British sense of humour.
Football
The Proximity to Europe
Having an Ozone layer. (For the time being at least) :-)
Cadbury's chocolate
Onion gravy
Mushy peas
Kelly Dalgleish.

OK, that's more than three, but I couldn't stop myself.

Eh.......ummmm.....

Irn-Bru - God damn I'm gonna miss the stuff, although I believe there is a shop in Sydney at the Rocks that sells cans!! I shall certainly be investigating the matter!!

Snow/Frost - A strange choice but I probably will miss it now and again, a few trips to the snowy mountains should sort that out!!

Edinburgh itself - I guess I will miss the old historic town, a lot of memories, it will be hard, but I will look forward to making lots of new memories in Oz

Talking

He he, I certainly won't be missing the gruesome twosome.

Aye your right about not being able to play football in the east. The east of Edinburgh has this terrible side that play in green

I must concede partly on the Irn-Bru front. Although I must quote:

"With the acquisition of several soft drink manufacturers, and clever advertising, A.G.Barr plc. is now among the top soft drinks companies in Europe, and the world market for Irn-Bru is expanding into many new countries.

This demand is met by a high tech distribution network and one of the most efficient canning lines on the world at Barr's Atherton plant near Manchester, England."

Manchester eh???
