I've just returned from a fantastic 10 day holiday in the UK. Traveling to another country is one of the best ways to get an education, an appreciation for one’s own country, and an unfiltered sense of where there’s room for improvement.
Gary LeeThanks for this insightful post. Fyi, I've been running my own CPAP on filtered tap water for the past three years without incident.

Annie WitcombThat's really interesting reading about us from a different perspective.
I'm quite proud of my towel rail / radiator thing now 🙂

Frank ColemanAnother sign of a Clearly Advanced Civilization: the electric tea kettle! Boiling water for your proper cup of Typhoo or PG Tips in about 45 seconds! We ordered one as soon as we got back and it arrived today. I feel more civilized already!
Annie WitcombI'm quite amazed that you guys are able to get through life without electric kettles, washer-dryers & decent sliced cheese.
The kettle is probably the most used item in every UK kitchen.
Our stock response to almost any given situation (eg bereavement, upset, scandal, injury, trauma, celebration or just plain social interaction) is always "I'll put the kettle on". It's a euphemism for sympathy, compassion & companionship.
I'm going to share this if I may as I'm not sure we realise we have anything to be proud of anymore.
Marty BradleyBoston is a long way from Los Angeles. My advice....buy a van, load her up....stop in Vegas....get to the show in L.A. just in time.......the great American road trip. Your audience awaits.
