Shall I assume that Rory is from Ulster??It's hard for me to consider queen-saluting Ulster boys TRUE Irishmen...just like we have a different word for pseudo-Mexicans who live in the U.S.,celebrate the 4th of July...and pretend that they don't know a word of Spanish when you cross the border and greet them.....Of course,they can jog their memories and recall a few Spanish words if you hold a gun to their heads

....Anyway,I posted an off-topic question on Page 4,post #58 of the Caroline's Petroleum Tank thread,and off-topic answers would be welcome either there or here

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

I went to the bank a bit ago and as I got home the radio was playing "Walking on Sunshine".

I saw Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows yesterday. I thought it was a pretty good movie, probably not as good as the 1st one though.

I managed 88 but missed a couple of large russian ones due to the spelling they used (Yekaterinburg instead of Ekaterinburg)... It really helps if you use the English spellings of cities too (mostly), which i suspect most here don't. How many got Istanbul?

I think I did.

Was sorta surprised Huddersfield and Reading were on the list though.
