Re: Where to live temporarily once I step off the plane?

Wow! That's insane. I remember the drive to SF being one hour from SJ, but then I drove mostly at 70 mph. I can't believe you can do that distance from Modesto in 1hr 15. You must have some sort...

Re: Where to live temporarily once I step off the plane?

Thanks to you and Poppy Girl. We're moving to Santa Cruz which is bloody expensive but my wife won't have it any other way so I'm going to have to take the hit. She's lived there all her life with...

Re: Where to live temporarily once I step off the plane?

Hi Harry, I thought I'd replied to you previously. I must have got distracted then closed all my tabs losing my text, I do that often!

Re: English food in the USA mostly Sausages

OK just had my Wall's sausage sandwich. Got to say they remind me of the sausages I used to eat at school. Not bad but not great either. Nice crunchy casing though. Don't think I'll miss em.

Re: English food in the USA mostly Sausages

Thanks. I really do like them, I think I'll have to feast on them in the coming weeks. For what its worth, I'm frying up some Walls sausages right now to see what all the fuss is about! :thumbsup:

Re: English food in the USA mostly Sausages

I'm not that much of a sausage fan but I really do like Cumberland sausages. You know, the big ones that come in a spiral shape. Is there an equivalent in the states?

Re: English food in the USA mostly Sausages

Well I have to admit, I've been living in Blighty for 30 plus years and have never had a Walls sausage. I am going to purchase some later just to see what you guys are going on about.
