    Nothing like a good holiday to appreciate your own country again.

    Don't get me wrong san fran was ace, and yes I would live there if
    I didn't have a doggy.

    But... I have just hopped onto my coach from heathrow and I don't
    Miss the usa all that much, things I love about the uk:

    - the lack of fast food adverts
    - the lack of adverts from lawyers
    - less obese people
    - I would get fat in america
    - its too big
    - we don't advertise precription drugs
    - I don't have to pay everybodies wages, I just
    Buy the service... Figuring out 15 percent all the time gives
    Me a headache.
    - I couldn't put my doggy through 6 months of quarantine.

    I would say that I saw no evidence of particularly high levels
    Of stupidity... I would put us at equal, we have enough ourselves.
    Although one person did ask me what state the uk is in, he now
    Thinks that it is in new hampshire, and another thought that england
    Was the capital of london hmm 

    I will defo return to san fran though, to explore the wider
    Bay area, its a really fun city.

    Maybe I will change my mind when it starts to rain.

    Well, I'm sure San Francisco enjoyed having you as its guest, Mr. Newly Married Man. smile

    You also seem to have about 100 commercial breaks per
    Tv show, so annoying! Can you buy an ad free service?

    We have a few ads every 15 minutes maximum, so much better!

      That's why most of us use Tivo or some type of DVR. That way I can just fast-forward through the commercials -- I've barely seen any in years!

      And you did hit the nail on the head with the obese thing. The really sad thing is that I see as many obese children as I do adults these days.

      But come to the East Coast next time. I'll show you around NYC!

    The weirdest thing was seeing these three adverts in succession:

    - an advert for heart medications.
    - an advert for a triple cheeseburger.
    - an advert for life insurance.

    If I were rich I would buy an advert to follow that chain which said:

    "Kids, miss out the triple cheeseburgers and you won't need the heart
    Meds and could pay a lot less for your life insurance"

    There were some truly beautiful women in san fran though,
    Shame about all the crack whores in las vegas!
