Uber mod probably strokes the ego in the right way and cuts down on typing so that works ...

Now, Concierge sounds a bit poncy, how about Receptionist?

Easier for the Aussies to pronounce too, I hate hearing French spoken with an Aussie accent!

Yep, Qantas, keep collecting them points Nice trip to Hobart for the New Year thanks to this year's UK trips

I've had a good month here so if my name is on it at least I will go happy Far too much of a fatalist to worry about it. Crossing the road here outside Kings Cross is more dangerous methinks!

Sorry was that " pissed off grumpy mod with too much luggage" or should itnhave read "pissed off grumpy mod with too much baggage.."

Just need clarification.... Could make a difference to my next post...

Fatalism good in my book, I survived a trip down the M1 to the GC today, that's my luck for the month used up ... That stretch of freeway

Give my regards to the pubs ... <sob>

....you see big oil drip patches at traffic lights.

....no-one bats an eyelid about living less than 50 metres from an overhead powerline ...But just look at that vista!

....your back garden is much smaller than the one you had in Britain.
