Ah, maybe....thinking back, I guess there weren't many catholic churches round us, but, still, I don't remember seeing anyone do it till we got here, and now they're everywhere

That does ruin the view - they should go into the aisle to make a recording, if they can't get it made at eye level from the seat.

That's what I do if I can't get a line-of-sight photo, I'll go where nobody is behind me and snap from there. But I'm considerate like that

They're only a big deal because they are a big employer for the area. My OH interviewed for a job with Yum (owner of KFC) a couple of years ago. He was told then that KFC was performing poorly compared to their other restaurant chains. Tbh, I pretty much can't stand KFC, and I think it's made Louisville a laughing stock to have our basketball arena (for the local uni) to be called the KFC Yum! Center. I'd rather call it The Bucket.

I'm actually pretty sure I want KFC for dinner tonight now. I'm sad they stopped doing baked beans though.

Followed by something with Cool Whip for dessert.

NOT Prunes.

That's right, I forgot you're in the UK at the mo - I'm hard pressed to think of an equivalent product out there.

Actually, KFC aside, Louisville looked like a nice little city, at least what we were able to see of it from I-65 anyway. Shame we were just passing through on the way to Cave City, it would have been nice to stop there and look around for a while.

That doesn't really surprise me, their pricing is completely out of this world (in Canada anyhow) and so not worth it, probably the most expensive fast food place one could choose.

And they don't even have biscuits, but fries here. The one in my town went bust, the franchisee couldn't get people to eat there.

Surely in Canada, everyone eats at Tim Hortons and A&W anyway? At least that's what we did when I visited my mate up in Alberta ...

I can't even look at an American A&W after that. So much better up there.
