Now hang on a minute - I was talking about Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and that sign says "$200 Fine": "$", not "£", so it must be Newcastle, New South Wales, or Utah, or whatever!

One of the funniest things I ever heard was someone here (I forget
who it was (not in pictures ;-(( ), but know who it wasn't)
doing a "John Wayne as a Geordie" routine (interesting haircut Mike

other parts of UK, eg London, have broader accents, which isn't so
noticeable. I reckon the busiest person in the UK would be a street
cleaner. Would have swept up a whole binful of dropped consonants
by morning tea)

how a just a few key people (Wycliffe, Tyndall, Swift, Shakespeare)
were major influences
