Angelworks,

I was down in Newburyport at the weekend on the way back from picking up my new 1.8T, and bought a pound of proper bacon, some bangers and some black pudding in the British Shop there. Bought a Cadbury's Flake for my wife.

There is also a great Indian restaurant there, just need another excuse to go there.

It's funny the things you miss.

Newburyport, MA? Names, I must have names-----store and Indian Restaurant as well.

Have you got your Quality streets for the holidays yet? I love the winter edition---Snow Flake.

Shhhhhh---I ordered, proper bacon, black& white pudding, bangers and beans for Hubster's Christmas breakfast. It's a surprise.

Are you from the UK as well?

I tried some of that "custard" in a can in the British food section here. :hurl: However, in that same aisle i do LOVE the Nestle bars. I like the Lion. It's like a giant Kit Kat with caramel and Rice Krispies all in one. I still am afraid to try the treacle pudding or the Heinz beans. And who the hell invented Lucozade??? That stuff is harsh.

Now i'm going to hide while Diana sits there laughing at us lameass Americans.:D

Yep, Newburyport, Ma. The English store is on State Street - don't know how well you know Newburyport, but if you park in car park behind the church in the middle of town you should see the English and Irish flags in the back windows of the store to the East.

The Indian Restaurant (which does a fantastic garlic nan) is located in a little plaza just to the south of the car park. I can't remember the name of it right now, but we have a menu at home, I can PM it to you if you want.

Not yet, need to make another trip down there for some pressies. My wife's favourite is the Cadbury's Hero's ???

Hmmmm, the thought of black pudding is bound to get some odd response from the bulk of people here, but you really can't beat it with good fry-up. We got some proper colemans mustard too in the English shop.

Yep, as you guessed, I'm from the UK too. Been here just over 2 years now. Spent the last 10 years living and working in the middle of London, got sick of the noise, dirt and lack of space, so came over here. NH is lovely - the opposite of London. I do find I miss friends and family a lot - it's difficult making new friends when you don't have kids, but we shall be here another few years yet.

How about you, how long you been here and what do you miss?

I'm American born and bred-----Hubster is born and bred in London although his Ma/Pa are both born and bred Dublin/Irish-----he's a man without a country--LOL.

I love visiting London but would never want to live there.

Hubster's been here since 2001 and does not miss London life at all---just friends and family like you said.

You can always drop in on us here in Keene---we're friendly!

Although I am not from the UK I do sorely miss:

proper bacon
proper Guinness
whole meal bread
great cheese
pub lunches
Radox
and all of Ireland



:cool:
