A question for those now living overseas, having left the British weather behind - how do you strike up a conversation with strangers?
Not a problem, moaning about the weather is a universal pastime, just ask our resident banana benders (if and when power is ever restored)  ;)
This definition tells you all you need to know about 'PC'
PC, aka, Political Correctness, is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority (Liberals/Socialists) and promoted by the mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is possible to pick up faeces by the clean end.

Had a couple of holidays in Morecambe when I was a child. I went back two or three years ago and was dismayed at how down-at-heel the place looked! Has it improved at all? I hope so! Heysham was still lovely!

In Queensland at this time of the year quite a few of the Southerns come here for 2 or 3 months to escape the colder weather. It is always very easy to recognise them for most of us wear shorts & the sandy shores attract them to sunbake & swim. We look at the crowd & the Queenslanders are the ones with a Tan & the others are the white  Southeners with what we call "Milk-bottle Tan. They stand out for a week or two especially when they are on the beach.   Jayess

It`s a bit better in Morecambe now, Assheton. They`ve had a new promenade done and the big white,curved hotel on the prom has been bought and had loads of work done on it and is now re-opened after ? number of years. They`ve also had tons of sand tipped, making a lovely beach after having nothing but shingle for many years. Still a lot more to be done, but they are slowly getting there.

Yes Nan. Morecambe is getting a lot better since the prom and stone jetty were improved. Did you go in the Midland Hotel?, it is very nice, been in a few times since it reopened last year it's nice to just sit in the conservatory with a drink and enjoy the fabulous views across the bay and admire the spectacular sunsets in the evening. I used to have a caravan at Denny Beck just outside Lancaster for 4 seasons so it was ideal for Morecambe and the Lakes, still go up most weekends the indoor & outdoor Markets are good and Hitchens is still open. Morecambe has always been a special place to me after going on a day trip with the school as a kid and was taken with it. I even went there on my honeymoon and one day I will live there.

I went to lake Garda in 1980 it was lovely in August stayed there 2weeks while there visited Venice and Verona and plenty of lovely Ice cream. On the way home stopped 3 days just out side Oberamague went to the Passion play that is performed every 10 yrs. What a wonderful time we had . Fudge

Maybe this will be the year we have the summer they keep promising us :-)  Could do with a nice one (don't mind the odd rainy day for the gardens etc but a nice warm sunny summer would be wonderful)

My Grandaughter loved Morecambe so much we went back for seconds yesterday and took her Mum[my daughter] and younger brother with us. Once again, we had a perfect day weatherwise. Brilliant sunshine and a cloudless blue sky. We all came home looking as if we`d been on holiday .
