Why did I have the impression that you were a glam metal fan from the '80s and aged about 40? :lol:


Haha, everyone online does. Guess I was born in the wrong era. But yeah, I am partial to a bit of Crue and Sister but I am more of a Trad/NWOBHM kind of guy (which is even older, haha!)

Shit Dude, you're 33?! I thought you were like 20 or something. If I'd known you were more my age I would've asked if you'd want a drink.
Next Bloodstock! I'm sure you'll be easy to spot. We'll hang out and talk about up and coming bands.

If you go to the right areas though, England is gorgeous.

But I know what you mean about the Jobs thing. I think they were taking on 12 people at the new cinema and half of Leigh applied. So many people that they had to hire a whole corridor in the Park Inn as a sort of open day.

Just turn round and look at that view. I live next to an airport, one of the biggest car plants in Europe, a major railway line and numerous chemical plants are only a few miles away (which you can smell when you walk out of the door). It seems like there would be lots of jobs here, but when they do come up like at Jaguar recently, over 10000 people applied for 200 jobs. :(


Uh, yeah, that's not the area of England I want to move to.

Yes. Been there about 6 times now and my breath is taken away every time. So much to see and experience.

I have a particular profession so, so long as there's positions there in what I do, I'll be all right. I might even get so lucky as to get transferred over there should I make the right career moves over here.

And yeah, Canuks make 3 posts in a row instead of just putting it all into one thread. I'll be more British eventually. :D
