Arrived in the UK last Thursday. All is well so far, cats are settled in, weather's not been too cold-even the sun has been out!!!

Having some pc probs, but other than that, can't complain. [Applause]

Snupy

Welcome to England - land of Indian food, Italian clothes, Japanese gadgets, American TV programmes, German beer,...you get the picture [Smile]

It's a great place, with many cultures to experience, and I hope you enjoy being here.

Congratulation!

Remember, the further North you get on that little island, the nicer the people are.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. Yes, I've heard that people are nicer the farther north you go.

So far, people in Yorkshire have been wonderful.

who woulda thought..

hot water bottles to warm up the bed
white French dressing
"dinner" at noon

"Dinner" at noon is an English thing? [Eek!] We PA Dutch farmers have dinner at noon and "supper" around 6pm. It's only "citified" folk who have "lunch" at noon and "dinner" as the evening meal.

Rhonnie - just for clarification .... In the (northern) UK we have:

Dinner - 12 noon or one-ish
Tea - 5 or 6 in the evening
Supper - 8 or 9 or 10 at night

Tiffin - now, that's a different matter altogether [evil]


...and High Tea is just for posh people (4:00pm) [Razz]

Wow. With supper that late at night, what time's breakfast? Or don't you eat breakfast? And what about the guidelines that say to eat your last meal at least two hours before bedtime? You Brits mustn't get much sleep!

EDIT: Tiffin

Screw guidelines. Eat when you're hungry and stop when you aren't hungry anymore.

My dad used to harass me about eating four meals a day. This was while I was in HS, when I ate breakfast around 6:30, lunch around 11, and then dinner wasn't until 8 or 9. So I'd take a snack between 2 and 4. This allowed me to survive the rest of my day, which featured, among other things, a whole lot of aikido practice.

Glad you made it through all safe and sound and sane snupy! I've been wondering when you'd make the final move...

I was in Scotland with my extended family this summer. We never ran into restaurant crowds because most of the family wanted to eat around 6, which is early by the rest of the world's standards but pretty normal and traditional for the US.
