Loc: Manchester United Kingdom

Are you passing Manchester, which is only 30 mins away from L'pool, Let me know as I would love to meet up with you. Manchester itself is full of many points of interest, including the Trafford centre with Free parking for 10,000 cars.
Also we got the home of Manchester City, which was orginally used to host the Commonwealth Games in Manchester.

The Hidden Gem St Ann's Church, the only building in Manchester to remain unscaved after the Blitz during the war

I look forward to seeing you

Do you like outdoor stuff--hills, rivers, walks etc?...if so Derbyshires Peak District National Park is on route to London from Liverpool. Its gorgeous. Of course you could visit Cambridge as you're from Massachusetts. Tons of historic places of interest here. Avoid Luton.

Damn Jim, If Ed meets up with you he'll discover that you're actually a 14 year old yellow belt.

Hi Ed,

I noticed this bit about your Grandfathers ship HMS Glasgow.

"December 3, 1940 while at anchor in Suda Bay, Crete, she was hit by two aircraft torpedoes that put two of her four shafts out of action. Damage was extensive, and repairs at Alexandria and at Singapore in June which lasted until the end of August 1941".

My Dad was based at the RN Dockyard in Alex during that time, so I guess that he could have worked on your Granddads ship. Funny old world isn't it?


God only knows; Really.
