    Where have you been sailing?

    I haven't done any real sailing in years. Used to sail on Lake Champlain in NY, and somewhere in OH...been so long I've forgotten.

    My wife and I spent our Honeymoon sailing on Lake George in Upstate NY.

    Looks lovely - found a site for trips out on lake in an old gaff rig boat. Like the sound of single rock head or whatever. Never been up that way - been in the same state but NY, NY is NOT near - nearest I've been is Montreal.

    I've sailed 30 - 40 foot yachts south coast england (eg cowes), med, canary islands + dingies.

    What were you sailing?

    A 30' Grampian sloop. Don't know anything more about it (other than the brand new head) cause I haven't seen it yet. I will make sure I get pictures.

    Actually, Montréal is very close to Lake Champlain. Depending on how fast customs is moving, only about an hour.

    My father still sails on Lake George when he can. And visits there regularly because they evidently have a place that sells the worlds biggest bowl of ice cream. lol

    I love the fact that many (most?) of the small islands are owned by the State of NY and you can camp on them, or at least dock at them and live out of your boat.....wonderful way to get away.

    I think I need to take My Current Wife up there again. She's been my current wife for 20 years but I call her that to keep her on her toes. LOL

    Heh - I like that. And it's a whole lot more polite than referring to her as the future ex.

    Well, I'm back for two days. I probably can't do much damage in that time, right? Here's a picture of my host from trip number one for all you nosey people. And I guarantee next week all you'll get are pics of the boat.

    Looking forward to seeing your boat pics. Like the parrot pic - very treasure island. I'll imagine it saying "pieces of eight" on some deserted island.

    Actually, this guy's vocabulary was limited to "Hi George," "hello," and "what." Although, after listening to him yell what so many times, I did teach him to reply "chicken ****!" (Immature, but fair.)

    Ah yes - brilliant that! We must reform spellers. We'll divide up the continents. Or should we work together?

    I'm not sure we can work together, after all you'll use words like 'color' and wind me up! Have you read Bill Bryson's 'Mother Tongue'? It's got a good chapter on spelling reform and the differences between American and British English. Very entertaining
    I remember watching some American 1950's 'Family Values' movie once when I was a student (yes, I was dossing) which was all goodness and light. I was knocked sideways when the lead female character criticised another female char. for doing nothing but 'wiggling her fanny'. In British English that has an entirely different meaning!

    You obviously weren't disciplined enough as a child. I think you need a spanking on the fanny and I'm the man to do it!

    Nahhhhhhhhhh. Between the time I've spent in the UK and Canada, I'm forever getting red underlines from my MSWord for adding in extraneous u's to words like "colour." It's the Australians I don't get (speaking of words like fanny)!
