I was hoping no-one would notice 1812!

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

Hello, Chicken Legs, Hello Hellen -

I'm English and I live in Italy - welcome. This is a great NG (Newsgroup). I've learned such a lot since I've been contributing - and reading the threads, which are always interesting, and the contributors are all very knowledgeable. I do hope you find the same.

Hellen, It's a bit late now to do much for Halloween - it's already dark here!
and tomorrow is All Saints (Ogni Santi), so Halloween will be over by then, but you've come to the right Newsgroup to find out what it's all about, there's nothing like Halloween alla Americana!

I look forward to reading your posts.

Nice to get to know you both

Sorry, I do know my history too well. Or as my kids say, I remember it since I was there at the time. Why heck, I shook Columbus's hand as he came ashore. Just ask my kids.

I am originally from Rochdale in Lancashiire (or it used to be Lancashire, now I understand it is Greater Manchester county). I've been in the USA since 1973 - had a 5 year stint back in England 19820 -1987 as husband was in the USAF. I still cook British foods and I recently started ordering Lancashire Tea through Amazon :) Nice to see some fellow Brits here.
