    Hello from (another wet) Manchester afternoon. Here in the UK we don't appear to be having a summer this year! Looking forward to talking to you all.

    Well, yes please! I've never known such a wet summer, it appears to getting worse each year.

    Yes I am! And just to let you know, we've just had the worst rain / storm I've seen in years. All the power has been off, roads are flooded.

    Us Brits like to talk about the weather!

    It's a national past-time :lol:

    But not always, I like to recall the conversation that GB Shaw (okay he was Irish) had with an aquaintance (Brit) on a ship that was going somewhere or other. Shaw was a vegetarian and a tall skinny bloke. The other bloke he bumped into on the ship was pretty portly. Anyway this bloke looks at GB and says:

    "Shaw, you look like there's been a famine!"

    And welcome Mancunian poster

    Shaw fires back at him quick as a flash:

    "And you look like you were the cause of it"

    And welcome Mancunian poster - anyone that lives in the city that the great Gene Hunt protected is more than welcome here :D
