Lived in k..k..k..Kilburn and drank in an alehouse not rent a name.. but was offer FitzHerbert Carruthers.

Now in Aberdeen looking for Fergie to Oz a refund on the pup he sold him.. the toy telly never worked on his tape deck.

But as I'm better suited to marriage like Neville now found my way out of the pub and onto the net.

I'm a Jimmy Nail fan from Spender/Crocodile Shoes era (you could not count how many times "cowboy dreams" played on TV in Toronto during the mid-90's) who saw this fan site: http://www.jimmynail.co.uk. I then looked Nail up on IMDB and saw he did a series called 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet' which did not sound promising, until I watched the first episode. Hooked thereafter, it's pretty darn good! I then looked up Auf Wiedersehen, Pet on my search engine of choice, https://duckduckgo.com/ and discovered both this site and this one http://spender.tv/. Auf Pet is something relatively new for me and a way to gain insight into what it is like to be a Brit. Actually, Brit architects designed a lot of early Toronto so when I visited parts of the UK, I was surprised how similar the places looked to my home, right down to the street names. Londoners are like Torontonians in attitude, aloof, but when you visit other places, like Manchester, the people are wayyyy friendlier. It is also spooky how similar Manchester looks like parts of Toronto, I felt weirdly at home. I was also not prepared for that level of friendliness. My first night in Manchester, I am looking for somewhere to eat. I am about to enter a restaurant, and find it is closed. This random Mancunian family also the same. The next thing I know, that family who are TOTAL STRANGERS, say, "Hey Canadian! We're taking you for dinner!" and did just that. I was dumbfounded, and grateful. I wonder if Newcastle is like that as well. Would love to go there next! I just want to see the bridge.
