  1. George Bernard Shaw once said: "England and America are two countries divided by a common language", so can you match the food items in British and American English? Can you match the British food names with the American ones? Boy, are the Americans going to be embarrassed when they find out that they've been using the wrong words all these years ?
  2. Danica is 35 (36 in March). I don't think you're losing your mind, Hobie, she's an attractive woman. A quick look through the female racing drivers who've competed at the top level of their sport (NASCAR, Indycar, F1, WRC etc.) over the years seems to suggest that good looks certainly aren't a hindrance. They're definitely a better looking bunch than some of their male counterparts .

  4. The old INDIAN caves
  5. Got to just over 20 minutes in. I hope you're not disappointed when you find out the real connection .
  6. I like to watch a high-brow UK quiz show called Only Connect, which involves trying to find the connections between groups of often seemingly unrelated things. In the third round of the show (the Connecting Wall), the contestants have to find the four groups of four from a grid of 16, with overlaps between the possible groups. In this week's episode (below), the first square on the board of the third round said "Appleby", so I immediately thought that there must me a group of TV doctors. It took me a few seconds to realize that Doc Appleby was a little too obscure even for Only Connect. I guess I've been watching too much Dukes again . BTW. For anyone who watches the video below, this isn't stereotypical of British quiz shows, but it is an example of the wide range we enjoy!

  9. garbage
  10. We certainly use the terms strike, spare and split. I've never had three strikes in a row, so I don't know about turkeys . Metric bowling obviously uses 10 pins - how many do you use?
  11. Wow, that's a lot of snow. In the last 24 hours, I went bowling for the first time in over two years. The bowling alley is only across town, but I just never think to go there. Today I was part of a group of 10, and came second overall (none of us were great bowlers, so that's not saying much).
  12. Hey, Roger, you obviously didn't get an electricity bill for $284bn like one of your neighbors . Full story here.
  13. "Please Come to Boston" by Dave Loggins The Wikipedia page suggests that the "man from Tennessee" was Dave himself.
  14. No snow here (we had some a couple of weeks ago), but there's a frost on my shed roof this morning. I had Christmas dinner with friends yesterday, and hope to be seeing different friends for dinner today. Most shops won't re-open until tomorrow, so it's likely to be a quiet day otherwise. Happy Christmas to all on HNet, and a belated Happy Birthday to MeadowMufn.
