OK OK OK OK......Enough already, jesus christ, lord almight, gordon bennet ! Jogging at 4:30am ( who looks after the kids ? ), playing tennis, what not, good for all of you !

We are all adults here, no need for abuse, name calling, and all that childish stuff. There seems to be a lot of generalization when it comes to talking about canada and the UK, in terms of people.

Only this week though, have we heard a lady in Toronto tell a brit to go kiss the queen's behind, and for the brits, well....most of us know what some of the people back home are like.

Enough already.....Breathe in, Breathe out, you see.....you feel better now...LOL

It's xmas in 18days and all

You seem prone to jumping to conclusions.
And I could certainly return the comment to you.

Is that me? Am I a true gentleman again?

I'm far too preoccupied when I see your name to think of lecturing you.

Always and forever....but I'm not quite quite sure about the influence Toon and his swear words are having on you.

hehehe - right, because you're always thinking "what is that bad-tempered crazy nut going on and on about now?"

Erm, something like that. Bad-tempered crazy nut is another way of saying fiery, foxy lady, isn't it? In my mind, you have red hair. That is good.

That's why they're special

The rest of the shows are to tell us how far our education is behind Turkmenistan or how slow our trains are compared to France, or why chavs are giving us a bad image abroad !

Did you not have it beaten into you in school that there are no "degrees Kelvin", its just Kelvin. Maybe it was just me

It was just you Iain, but you're still very special in spite of the constant state of confusion.
