I hate to admit it but I've had some pretty fair beer from micro-breweries in the Nashville area but I can't remember the names.

Don't think I don't like American beer - you're talking to a man who had his first Budweiser and first Schlitz on the same day in 1962 - in Yorkshire!

Agreed. I'd make that trade in a heartbeat. I'd even call Jeremy Clarkson to be there waiting.

Welcome aboard.

Out of curiosity, do you own any firearms anymore, or is it too difficult of a process now to deal with?

Thanks very much - good to be here.
Not even the US has got that kind of money. I don't know if you've come across Jeremy Clarkson, who fronts Top Gear over here, but Piers Morgan is the only person he's ever hit in fifty-odd years of life. He broke a finger doing it but reckons that every second of pain was worth it.
Nobody can be so unlikeable without a great deal of effort - I hope he's being paid an awful lot of money so he'll want to stay.
Sorry guys - it's every nation for itself.

I can see from the reply above that you do know Jeremy - he's very mouthy and non-PC but a good guy at heart. I'm afraid we've decided to keep him - Sorry again, guys

Welcome to the Forum!

I've been to Blighty a number of times, usually staying at a hotel on Buckingham Gate. Several evening strolls brought me to the attention of the coppers around Scotland Yard. We talked about the Glock 17s they carried. They were envious of my Glock collection.

Thanks very much but I'd like to point out that we've been teaching English to the English for centuries - and they still make a hash of it. I replied in Welsh because you obviously have at least one of God's people living amongst you.

Own a hand gun? It's almost impossible and Blair closed down all the gun clubs and ranges at the same time, without compensation. Defend your State's rights, or you might end up like us!

No doubt they were and rightly so but at least they get to shoot theirs on a fairly regular basis. I've also read today that our Armed Forces will be issued with Glock 17s to replace the Browning Hi-Powers we've had for over 50 years. I learned on a Mark 1 in the 60s, without ambi-dextrous controls. Which is why, as a lefty, I learned to fire with both hands. Ha! At my present stage, I'm not even sure any more which bit of the gun I should be holding.

Embrace the American South and try them with barbecue sauce. You'll never ask for mayo again.

Embrace the South! I already feel cheated if I get on a plane and it doesn't end up in Nashville. On my last visit in 2009, I was disturbed to hear a distinct Tennessee twang in my voice towards the end of the vacation. It took months of elocution therapy to get rid of it.

The barbecue sauce is fine - on barbeque - but chips and fries were made to be eaten with mayonnaise. Sorry - that is an eternal truth.

Of course you're better armed than we are but then again, you really need to be. But "Frenchy-loving"? We've been fighting the French for at least a thousand years that I know of and still are, one way or another.
The wonderful "mayo and chips" is Dutch or Belgian in origin.

That might have been a fair option but the Welsh do talking, not shocking, unless it's with the sheep.

That's funny.

I was stationed in Charleston, South Caroline for two years with the Navy in 1957 and I am from Minnesota, which is about as northern European in the USA as you can get short of Canada.

Anyway, when I came home I was picked on by everyone because they said I had a "Southern Accent". When I was in South Carolina everyone asked me if I always talked that fast. The said I had the slow my speech down so they could understand me.

By the way, in South Carolina the French Fries are eaten with Vinegar sprinkled over them.



Anyway, again welcome to a good group.

Thank you - I've been in England for so long that my family say that I "talk like a bloody Cockney". Not quite true - my Essex friends have no trouble in spotting me as a Welshman. I'm fascinated by American accents, too, and my friends were amazed that I could tell that Garth Brooks and Annette Bening came from the same sort of area (Tulsa OK and Topeka KS, as it happens). All you have to do is listen!

You think you're having trouble with gun control? Have a look at this:
