... by the time I could get back to England all the nuclear fallout bunkers will have already been rented out. As I need somewhere to live I'd consider buying one but with my luck Putin would launch a nuclear attack while I was out shopping and I'm fairly sure that most branches of Tesco aren't bomb proof.This message has been edited.

Yes, Bob, it was one of the first French words I learned. Way back when Renault cars were sold in North America I worked for the West Coast distributor, so was exposed to many not-so polite expressions.
bethree5, are you back for a visit, or can we hope to see you here regularly? I've missed your good limerick submissions and insightful comments.
As for poutine, a few weeks ago I posted the following on Farcebook: Retraction from a small Quebec newspaper: "Yesterday we referred to the president of Russia as Vladimir Poutine. That was an error. His proper name is Vladimir Putain. We regret the error."This message has been edited. Last edited by: Geoff,
