10 things about the USA.

I love...
1.The space. Such big gaps between houses.
2.Cup holders. Handy things, yet English cars never seem to have them. How on earth do we cope on long car journeys?
3.Talking to complete strangers. We should do this more often.
4.My English accent is cool. (It's just like the end of Love Actually. No really.)
5.The mountains.


I hate...
1.Shopping trolleys (carts) with the two back wheels fixed in one direction. To turn one around, I had to do a three point turn, rather than just rotating it on the spot.
2.The 5 cent coins are bigger than the 10 cent coins. What's up with that? (Update: I've just been reminded that British 10 pence coins are bigger than 20 pence coins. Sorry.)
3.This is back bacon. No-one there seems to have heard of it, only selling the streaky variety.
4.Driving on the right. Its the wrong side! It messes with my head!
5.Leaving.

  • I found this via a Google search. It explains the different types of Bacon and offers suggestions for substitutes for each.

    I hope this helps you find something resembling your old favorite.

  • I like streaky bacon.

    but I'm not normal
    [actually, I'm slowly eating less and less meat. Not sure why.(No that's a lie, but I'm not going into that right now)]
