The photos of products on that site are straight off eBay.

Wow, good eyes 34058.

Yes English Settlement is a cracking album.

I bought it from a local record store and was annoyed to find out later that the Australian release was only a single LP.

I had to re buy it as an import double LP which was a lot of money to a 14 year old in 1985.

If it looks too good to be true, it is too good to be true. A lucky escape.

Ironically, one of the things I've noticed, is that a lot of the people who throw trash out of their vehicles as they slow down for the roundabout near our home, have have the Union Flag, or English Flag, emblazoned on either the vehicle or it's number plates.

So presumably they're proud to be English, or British?  And there's nothing wrong with that. 

But not so proud of their country as to look after it.   ???

thanks for the replies.
NG, I'm sorry to hear about your brother's experience. I used to work in Minneapolis a lot, and really loved it. It's terrible to know they're struggling. I wonder if i've been in that record store?
I'll need to find those Bryson books, i think.

This won't be a retirement plan, I'll need to keep working.
I've spent most of my time as a pattern-maker and sculptor in a foundry (27 yrs). Prior to that, i worked in film and theater. I've recently started designing sets for a small local company to do something fun. Last year, i contracted with our school district to work with the students on their productions. My kids are both in college, we've both found ourselves with extra time.
My sweetheart is an accountant, so between the two of us, we should be able to find something useful to do.

I suppose our first choice would be to try for the Maldon area. Somewhere quiet.
we stayed outside Coventry in a small village on the last trip. It was closer to what I'd expected than anywhere else we landed.
The reason for that stop was to see the cathedral, and visit the transportation museum (both were outstanding), but everyone in London thought we were nuts to go there at all.
Of course, if you were here and wanted to see Detroit, I'd try to talk you out of it...

I recognize that there are issues everywhere, but I'm seeing the US as increasingly uncivilized, and it's hard to watch. Even wearing a mask at a shop has become a debate. The same people that tell me that they "refuse to live in fear" and wear a mask, have gun-safes the size of a refrigerator (american fridge) and have never travelled outside of the country because they expect to be kidnapped and killed.
so frustrating.

sorry for the rant.
If any of you are familiar with the area around Maldon, I'd be glad of any recommendations.
Cheers

^^^^ Always pays to be cautious. I've been looking for a spare part for my car ( 23 year old Merc).  Found the right thing on Ebay yesterday but at almost half the price of most of its competition. I was about to hit "pay" when I though to take a better look at the pics and discovered that a pretty vital plastic component was broken off and missing from the part.....

....and never buy online from an unknown seller anything that you are not content to be a dead loss if it goes wrong ?

Previously I'd have said not to bother but having read two stories in recent months of people losing their rebuild/stored vehicles to fires, I might change my mind !

20p Bottle and Can deposit scheme. The Legislation is working its way through the Scottish Parliament...

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/may/08/scotland-launches-20p-deposit-return-scheme-for-drinks-cans-and-bottles

In the meanwhile I went down and bagged up the trash left yesterday. Kids I suspect, judging by the detritus. Rose wine, Rose Cider and tiny bottles of 1776. They can't even drink properly.  :whistle

At 20p a bottle/can I probably collected 4-5 worth. Enough to persuade them to take it away ?
