    I visited an Apple store yesterday and was struck by the number of posseurs working there. A number of the males seemed to think they were on the catwalk rather than in a SHOP. Various hats, flat caps, scarves, heavy jewellery etc, etc.

    One guy looked a total cockhead!

    Maybe it's me and I'm getting old and grumpy?!

    Fortunately, not yet. Still some urban sprawl to go.

    Is the stuff us "Yanks" talk about as confusing to you as this post is to me?

    Yes. :D

    London = big city types
    Milton Keynes = used to be lots of little villages, then turned into new urban sprawl in the 60's & 70's - now it's soulless surburbia...
    The Provinces = anything more than 60 miles from London. Also known as "the country" and "that place eggs come from" to big city types.
    ;)

    Hope that helps!

    Well they say if we hadn't won that little skirmish in 1776, we'd all be speaking English on this side of the pond!

    We'd pretty much be like Canada is now (outside of Quebec), which I personally wouldn't mind, but hey.

    As soon as you walk into our local apple store there are plenty of people willing to help you out but as soon as you ask them for something they have to go find another person.
