    ...hello to the user from El Dorado! Not the soap, the place in Kansas!

    When you look at this site, do you have a feeling you aren't in Kansas any more? Laughing

    Not according to this forum you weren't. Question

    Mind you, I seem to have moved from Oxford, and I'm now on the train heading south out of Reading. Maybe I'm going home? Thumbs Up

    Today I see patpending is up on the moors, just north of Skipton, while I am still stuck on the train trying to get out of Reading. Must be the wrong kind of quantitative easing!

    I think the best we can get from this facility is which country someone is in...

    I see BurnleyRover appears to be in Bolton. Not a million miles from Burnley, but not close either.

    Is that a palindrome? What, of Bolton? That would be Notlob!

    You've joined at a good time, Doc - arguably most new MG model news for eight years! (Rover having ceased to be - step forward Roewe...)

    I note that Fantomass is here. I have learnt two new words of Russan: chaussee (French, main road, word used in North Germany too) and administrative rayon (tier/level/district, I presume - it means "shelf" in French!)
