Ya, and we both live here. We'd have to make the effort to leave if we don't want to go. .
Statistics don't lie.

What is this "soup bowl" thing of which you are talking?

I think it's a basketball match or something.
Seriously, it's a 4 hour T.V. comercial marathon occasionally interrupted by a bunch of guys standing around on the lawn trying to figure out what to do with a funny shaped ball.

According to some of the ladies I know its a great place to check out the colour combos used on the uniforms, and apparently there are some great asses walking around in tight pants.

If you woman gets excited by those great asses, there could be benefits for you.

Not going to go there ... politics

Well, it's marked from "Good Housekeeping" ... but, it would be nice to see the opposing view from "Bad Housewrecking"

Yes, I think they mentioned something of the sort back when I studied history. Isn't it a bit backwards to be invaded by the French?

Right back atcha! Now you're at 1735, the year that Emperor Sakuramachi acceded to the throne of Japan.

So there!

He's French and on top of the castle ... and Arthur is down in the mud. Go figure.

Yep. The French loved castles back then, too. Oh, and a lot of Americans seem to have forgotten that the French saved their bacon back in 1783 (bankrupting themselves in the process)

Another thing, Jean, I didn't know you coined your own money:



"Jean, by the grace of God, King of the French"

Time to reacquaint yourself with reality, perhaps?

Funny thing. I have tried to start an "alternative currency" like the "Bristol Pound" ( BŁ ) ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_Pound

But for some reason, my "Poitiers Pound" ( PŁ ) isn't catching on well with the local merchants ...
