Don't know for certain at the moment Nick, but it would only be for one day for me.

I'll be there as usual.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

I'd like to be there both days and I've a feeling I've booked the time off.  Will check tomorrow.

Too far north.  In any case will have just arrived at the Bangkok Ladyboy Convention that's keeping me away from Milton Keynes.

What IS it about the MK Show that makes people feel they just HAVE to overload us with information????:o

It's the place. Weird, almost artificial town with delusions of grandeur brings it out I think  :angel: Can you tell I'm not a fan  ;) It's what they would have called a "Dormitory Town" 'tween the Wars .

There's a number of "bedroom communities" around Calgary (and Edmonton) where the inhabitants have delusions like that ---

There's nothing wrong with Dormitory/Bedroom towns that grew up naturally (after all that's what most suburbs are) it's just the ones that were designed as such that seem to have this problem. Mind you if you've moved there from some run down inner city area then they are probably nice places to live. I just like a little bit of a mixture of eras and styles. Where I live it's a mixture of every architectural style from about 1840 to the modern day. Some fascinating stuff, some beautiful stuff and some ugly stuff - what was it about the late Victorians and red bricks ?  :angel:

I've got a mate lived in MK for a while.  Not a bad place to live as long as you drove everywhere.
They designed the place with cycling/walking tracks separate from the roads which while being safe in road safety terms are perfect for lurking near-do-wells.
The look of MK - repeated iterations and variations of a few standard designs - has become standard in the large housing subdivisions that now cover what was all paddocks just 10 years ago out here South East of Melbourne.  Albeit with less roundabouts, rain and trees.
