For a fabulous book about lobsters, alanrussell, I highly recommend Trevor Corson's 'The Secret Life of Lobsters', which is far more fascinating than it sounds.

We only go to Kennebunkport to spit in the general direction of Walkers Point.

Further thought on Kennebunkport

In the restaurant where we had blueberry pie and coffee the walls are covered with pictures of the Bush family. Even in the corridor to the washrooms so I guess when you use the washroom there you are "going behind the Bushes".

Ba-doom and indeed tish!

Perhaps they haven't worked out how to fix the pictures onto the inside of the toilets yet?

Reminds me of the character in Puckoon who had a toilet crafted with the expectant upturned faces of his enemies sculpted into the bowl.

Well, that's just an unsubstantiated list - I'd be wary of citing it as factual.

Alaska is the most Northern, Eastern, AND Western state in all of America. It is the only state that enters the “Eastern Hemisphere” making it also the most eastern lying and western lying state.

Give it a week or so so that I can work up some good phlegm.

Why can't the people from this country call it the United States of Washington or something?

America is the continent - and there is another "United States" in the contenent - ie México (Estados Unidos).

Can't these guys get some kind of game show together and name their country properly?

I don't think us Brits can comment on naming countries, we seem to have quite a few variations on a theme.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland - it's a bit of a mouthful, but accurate (although some may question the "united" bit).

The number of times I've been booked in as Irish - because it's the only word they recognise in the whole thing on my passport.
