None the less, our week there was off the charts. We rented ourselves a great little condo to share, drank way too much cheap wine, made some great meals, sunbathed on the beach, laughed our asses off, and danced to some great music in the most classy venues we think any junglist will ever see.

There’s a small visitor center on the grounds and you walk around a path about 150 feet away from the stones themselves. They’re as big as I always imagined them to be, however, Deidra says she imagined them to be much bigger. Due to the distance the path around the henge is, you can barely see the original blue stones on the inside.
Just then from far across the street, we hear some random yelling. Knowing this was England and they get a bit out of control, I figured it was just some guy blowing off some steam. But the yelling didn’t stop, and in the shadows from across the street a figure of craziness and destruction appeared. This guy was kicking garbage cans, body checking bus stops and being loser drunk. As he swayed and swerved up to the very same crosswalk we were about to cross, my eyes met Steve and we knew there was going to be trouble.
I can’t beleive it’s already Furry Friday again! Time sure goes by strangely when your traveling. It goes by slow during the day but when you look at it by the week you are always thinking: What? It’s been a week since then?? Due to this traveltimeitis problem our next scheduled Furry Friend didn’t even get his questionnaire emailed to him! So we have had to post pone his interview to next week!
This summer my wife Deidra and I toured through Europe with our friends Steve and Karen, sampling the best of the overseas as we went along. Being from Canada we’ve seen some of your shows, and were interested in trying celebrity restaurants in the UK. When we were in London, we had gone to Gordon Ramsey’s steakhouse and were seriously disappointed by our experience, the steaks having no real taste, being quite bland.
Bath is a great little city. It reminded me much of Baden-Baden in Germany. Filled with beautiful old architecture, cobble stone walking streets, shops galore, fancy restaurants, smiles from happy locals, and a luxurious Hot Spring. The only difference I found was of course the language, and Bath locals seemed much younger then in Baden-Baden.
The result was nothing anyone would imagine. From the opening day for 3 months straight the line was at least 3 hours long and people traveled to Bristol from all other world to see the exhibit, including us!
One thing about the festival I didn’t like though was the trashiness of the English people. There’s only one type of animal I know that lives in it’s own filth, wallowing and scrounging through the trash for food. We saw people sitting at the food fair and just throwing their unwanted food on the ground; eating in-between trash and leaving whole chicken cadavers while throwing bottles on the ground.
Thorpe Park is a thrill seekers dreamland with at least 11 Extreme ride to choose from with many smaller rides in between. Arrive with good company to spend many hours in line with, go to the bathroom before you get into any line wait over an hour, PLEASE leave your weak stomach at home, and think about investing into a “fast track” for the most popular coasters.
After hearing Hospitalities Sound at Matter Nightclub, which had better sound than clubs in Vancouver, I was stoked to hear the grand-daddy of all sound systems at a special Valve System showdown at Indigo nightclub at the O2 arena. Walking in with anticipation of gut wrenching bass that you can feel in your spine, I should have known something was up as the sticky floor pulled at my shoes and the sound was a bit off.
