Re: Parking lot

Just for the record Steve, we don't have parking lots in the UK, we have car parks. And your photograph shows a multi storey contraption.

Another pub

A bloke in the pub told me that his grandfather saw the Titanic and was convinced that it would sink. He told everyone that he could but no-one would listen and told him to shut up.

Of warm honey and mint,
But sadly, she didn’t pull through.

His job, his finances, climate change, what is happening in Washington, Moscow, North Korea, Europe, the Middle East, May, Trump, Brexit, Brexit and then there is Brexit. But on his way home he ...

Re: Lots of cigarettes

I smoked 20 a day for most of my life but then I met Margaret in 2002. She is an ex-smoker, and that was then end of me as a smoker.

Re: Kilometers

This thread has shown why in the UK we spell things as we do.
An odometer can measure kilometres.
In other words, a meter measures metres.
