This site is in the process of being ‘tweaked’. All comments will be valuable.

You made it! Welcome to the United Kingdom where you will find:

Honesty is a given.

Smile at a chap and he doesn’t necessarily think it is a come on.

Bathrooms and kitchens are carpeted.

Aeroplanes make plane trails in the sky like loads of snail trails.

The sky is criss crossed with pink plane trails at sundown and sunset.

Milk is delivered in glass bottles and left on doorsteps. As is the payment!

The air is crisp.

The possibilities are endless.

Drivers pump their own petrol and then go inside the driveway shop to pay!

A land with no wind. No south easter blowing continuously! Okay so not all of you come from the Deep South (Cape Peninsula).

You can buy eggs, honey, jams and veggies from the side of the road. No vendor is there to tempt you to buy more and you put your payment in an ‘honesty box’! Now how cool it THAT?!

England is bordered on the West by Wales, the East by the North Sea, the North by Scotland and the South by the English Channel, with France across the water.

Great Britian is made up of England, Scotland in the North, and of Wales in the West and Northern Ireland.

The United Kingdom is made up of, Great Britain, Northern Ireland and many smaller islands.

    • Hi Debbie

      Thank you for your kind words and apologies for only coming back to you now. Some how your mail did not come to my attention straight away.

      Still trying to find that book that Steve wrote.

      I would love to meet your Mother. Am here in Cape Town having some R & R and catching up with my boys and my friends. We have had some rain over the past few days and now the sun has come out to play with the South Easter.

      Greetings to those down in Salcombe who know me.
