Re: How important is space?

We were lucky to have made enough money on our one bedroom flat in London to buy a nice fully detached house here. It's not big by Canadian standards, but it's plenty big enough for our little...

Re: An Idiot Abroad

You are so right. The car phone warehouse scene was brilliant. I also loved the episode with Patrick Stewart.

Re: BE Expats- Toronto Branch Meet Up- October?

I know the place. It's near the Bier Markt. Which is, incidentally, a great place for Beer lovers.

Re: BE Expats- Toronto Branch Meet Up- October?

Is the Yard a venue or an area? Just wondering as I may pitch up myself.

Re: Favorite Current TV Shows

River Monsters (Discovery Channel). My Son and I love this. I'm not an angler myself, but Jeremy Wade is a true, no-nonsense adventurer.

Re: London Riots

I'm a bit late to the party on this one. (Been busy having a life etc.)

I was at school during the London riots of the early 80's, and these seem strangely reminiscent. The m.o. is different due...

Re: An Idiot Abroad

I used to listen to this on XFM back in 2003. It went out between 2 and 4pm every Saturday. I tried my best to listen wherever I was.

I got the pod casts a couple of years ago, but I had to...

Re: Bacon Butties

I was referring to visiting my Grandparents house, and rarely leaving without a bacon sandwich and several cups of tea. I know it's probably nostalgia, but bacon sandwiches are still a treat for me....

Re: Survey

I remember the 80's when Channel 4 used to show American Football. There was a lot of advertising and hype at the time, and quite a few people started to watch it. But it just died in the end...

Re: Bacon Butties

I agree the bacon you buy here that is supposed to be English style is a little bland.

Your sandwich idea does sound pretty good, but I still prefer the English style on white bread with HP...

Bacon Butties

I know bacon has been covered here before, but just thought I'd mention I enjoyed a nice bacon sarnie (I'm from the South) at 5am today while watching the wedding. (We managed to find some British...

Re: Remortgaging - Good deals?

Using a Broker is a good idea, but do some home work first so you know where the best deals are. There are plenty of websites that have current lending rates by lender.

Remember that mortgages in...

Re: Burn a poppy / British soldiers burn in hell 'protest'

The pictures look pretty authentic. Personally I find this to be one of the worst kinds of insult you can make towards our veterans, our armed forces and the British people as a whole. They are...

Re: In my view

I'm an atheist, but I still love Christmas. I see Christmas as a cultural celebration.

Christmas is about decorations, carol singing, exchanging gifts, getting drunk and eating too much. It's...

Re: "Cryo Kids" - should they or shouldn`t they?

Absolutely the identity of the donor should be kept anonymous.

In this case the parents decided to use a donor when they discovered the Father was infertile. Surely it's enough of a kick in the...

Exactly. Although this would be a difficult one to copy.

It seems a master forger has managed to create and sell passable copies of the eminent Tracy Emin's artwork.

Re: Tariq Aziz sentenced to death

I quite agree. Surely there's been enough killing already. He's 74, sick and already serving 15 + years. He's unlikely to ever see the light of day again, so why execute him?

Re: Who doesn't post on here, who would like too because it seems too cliquey?

Except for Cowboys. I think it's still legal to discriminate against them.

Re: Living the Dream.......how close to reality?

Ironically I never felt as though I was in a rut back in London, whereas now I feel I am in a rut. If you ask me, the UK has far more opportunities than Canada.

I still love that. I believe A level physics outlines the differences in Canada compared to the rest of the world. It's like water spirals into the plug whole in the opposite direction in the...
