I want to move to Scotland now.
That is funny, but the Connery letter especially made me laugh. Can't think of quicker ways to end his career? Really Sean? Really?
Connery letter is a faaaaaake
I kinda suspected it might be, but I can never resist the opportunity to take the mick out of Shhhaun....
Big Tam is unmickable. Nothing dents his armour. When he was eventually offered a K his remark was along the lines of "It'sh about time".
His ignominious exit from the film industry makes me sad. He deserved one last huge hit to see his career off, but instead we got The League of Whatever and some terrible cheapo CGI movie that nobody ever saw. Which was a blessing I suppose, as it was really, really bad.
^^Are you absolutely sure...
Giant floating heads? What's not to love?
Even Zardoz II would have been preferable to The League of Whatever, or Sir Billi.
Poor Squigs, we totally stole his thread.
To try and give some actually useful advice, give Bath a stop on your way. From London, down the M4, and you're there. Extra bonus, the M4 is really easy to get to from Heathrow airport and saves you crossing London. It's an absolutely lovely town and has some really interesting history to it and a nice spa if you're a bit travel sore. After a night in Bath, you can head north via the M5 to Birmingham as others have said. I wouldn't pass up a stop in Bath while you have the opportunity though. I wish I could plug Bristol instead, and it is a great city with plenty to offer, but if you're short of time, pick Bath over it. If you do come out west, let me know and we'll have a warm beer or high tea and discuss the correct way to pronounce the town we're in (it's Barth...)
The weather in October is the same as any other time. Changeable. Might be sunny, cloudy, wet, cold, warm, snowing, windy, hailing or all of these. There's a reason we talk about the weather so much, we have a lot of it.
I agree about Bath - lovely place, well worth a visit.
I have to admit I forget to pronounce it "Barth"....
My mother-in-law pronounced it 'Bawth'.
Yes, definitely Bath. And Stratford Upon Avon is very nice and historic if you are passing through the Midlands.
It all depends on which way you plan to go up on the West Coast or the East Coast. East Coast I would say York would be a good destination, on the West Coast there is always Blackpool. It all depends on what you want to see and do.
I'd say York over Blackpool, although it has been a very long time since I've been to Blackpool...
I went there for a couple of hours recently, I'd also recommend York over blackpool.
I'd recommend the lake district over both though.
Blackpool? Is that a joke? You may as well send them to fucking Butlins.
Ay there's nowt wrong wih Butlins, lad
Been a long time since I've been to Butlins though, there was a time when I was a child that I thought it was a place of wonder
Actually it might be fun to drop in somewhere like Blackpool, get a feel for a British seaside resort (although there are probably better choices given Blackpool's mainly a stag/hen venue these days as I understand it. In fact if they do go up the East coast I'd recommend Scarborough/Whitby)
yes I would pick York over Blackpool, but as I said it all depends on which coast they plan to go up.
