    Haven't been to London for a very long time. Used to go there and get a B&B near Liverpool St Station and eat whatever they served. I used to like Bangers with eggs over med. with baked beans and toast for breakfast when there.

    Really got tired of the "typical" english breakfast when I was there.... Especially the cold dry toast in a rack. Did like the tomatoes tho...

    I was stationed in England. I had the same food problem that Englanders have with American food. I suspect a lot has changed.
    American food is too spicy. GB food is too bland. Some pubs have food and you might find a decent meat pie. I watch a lt of British detective shows and was encouraged to see there are supermarkets now. When I was about, a strange thing was the butcher shops were claimed to have "Natural refrigeration" meaning open air. The fragrance was apparent from quite a ways.
    To improve sales, there would be a pigs head in the window and birds hanging from their necks long enough for the feathers to begin to fall.
    Click your heals together and say "This ain't Kansas."
    Give me a relay with big enough contacts, and I'll run the world!

    You can be anything you want......As long as you don't suck at it.

    If a person wants to create a machine that will be more likely to fail...Make it complicated.

    If you think that's bad try a trip to Kathmandu. No sewer systems to go along with the no refrigeration.

    I was going through a time once where I thought Bob Seeger had a good idea. I priced a round trip first class ticket to Kathmandu. $10400.

    I left the west coast with $800 on a one-way milage ticket to Australia. I left Australia with a little more and a one-way milage ticket to London. Heathrow airport sent me back to Paris where I came from. From Paris I bought a one-way ticket to New York.
    That took 2 years and allowed me to see seventeen foreign countries.

    Great you took the time. I ran into a couple that had just returned from 6 months in Alaska. This was in the mid 80's. They thought if they didn't do it when they did, life would occur and they might never have another chance.
    Some people have said that there's enough to see in the US without going to other countries. Sure there's plenty to see but you never really have the sense of actually leaving the US. Language and customs are the same.
    I just wish travel was like it was before 911.
