    Top Gear

    We used to get the original Top Gear over here. One Special was set in Vietnam, they rode mopeds. It was a great program and because of the scenery they went through, Vietnam went on my Bucket List. We are finally going next February.

    Regarding parallel parking - I know one thing for sure. Parallel park perfectly first time, not a soul around to see it. Screw it up, and the world sees it!

    Can't work out who I am writing to until they answer and say who they are and how we are connected.

    Who uses Ancestry.com

    Kev, you get a detailed percentage of the regions your DNA is from, totalling 100%. I remember I had 63% from UK, 6% from Ireland, can't remember the rest but it included northern Europe, Iberia and Scandinavia. I just looked at my results again and it has been updated. Now it is 81% England, Wales and Northern Europe. 12% Ireland and Scotland, and 7% Sweden. Ya. There also has a link to click on to view Matches. They are seperated into 1st Cousin, 2nd Cousin down to 4-6th Cousin possible matches. It gives the name/avatar of each person and confidence of match. You can click on a name and send a nessage through Ancestry. I give my contacts my email so we can correspond privately thereafter.

    Who uses Ancestry.com

    I did the 'spit in the tube' deal on Ancestry 2-3 years ago. You are always skeptical about these things, but hey ho, in for a penny....... i got back my results of where I came from and also close matches. A few months ago I found a cousin who's grandmother and mine were sisters. Funny thing about this one was, born in Chesterfield she now lives in Assisi, Italy as a Franciscan nun. We have been there twice over the years and could have passed her on the street! This week I have found a first cousin through the matches, who I have not seen since we were kids. I have been in touch with cousins further down the line also. The site works.

    Car Number Plates

    Darn sales tax. Why don't they add it in the price of things, like the U.K. Arizona only has back plates, you can put anything you like on the front. I figured you only have a back plate because if you get pulled over, the cop stops behind you, and checks your plate on his computer before he comes to speak to you. I may be wrong, it has been known before!

    How's your day?

    We have friends from Radcliffe on Trent here for a few days before they go off on their travels. Today we are going to that big ditch up the road, a.k.a the Grand Canyon. Haven't been in years, you don't when it's on your doorstep, so hopefully they haven't filled it in.

    Jigsaw puzzle season

    Me too. New ones over here on places like Amazon, are $21 upwards. This last one 1 got was $5.50. That'll do nicely.

    Car Number Plates

    Was just looking at this site, apparently there were 34,000 Az plates rejected. My daughter's plate is UMUPPET. When she explained what it meant she said she loved the Muppets! In fact it's usually what she yells at the ejits driving.

    Car Number Plates

    Arizona is quite nice. Having said that, we have, I think ar the last count, 55 plates to chose from. One regular plate and 54 specialized plates that support various charities, sports teams, associations etc.
