We also have at least 2 Italians, 1 Belgian, 1 Nigerian - and those are what I can think of off the top of my head.

Amongst the Brits, you should also add Rosy, Chris, DoctorBeaver, Paul - but they are all less prolific posters.  I'm sure there will be lots and lots of others who are now offended that I have forgotten them, but thses are the one's that quickly came to mind.


I know that at least 4 or 5 are Londoners that I know of, and I myself am only about 30 miles from London.

I generally smile a lot, I don't know why, I guess it's some of the people I come across while coming into work and a couple of people at work.

I met this lovely woman last night who served me some chips and gravy at Miss Millies. She was very refreshing, but somewhat Bristolian [;)]
I've never been called darling, sweetheart, babe and love so many times in the space of a couple of minutes. I felt somewhat special [:)]

LOL - OK, what is the conversion factor between a ewe watt and a horse power (I know, you are now gong to ask which horse power - brake horse power, metric horse power, or any one of the other definitions of horse power?).

I can only assume that watt, being a unit of power, thus a ewe watt must be the power delivered by a ewe, and thus comparable to the notion of power delivered by a horse.
