Correct me if I am wrong - but "quid" is the same as a pound and vat is "value added tax" - sorta like sales tax in the US excpet they have different rates for different items. I believe the vat rate is higher for things that are considered more of a luxury than other things.
I was in London 3 weeks ago and didn't know a soul. I went to a few pubs near my hotel but didn't really connect with anyone. Pretty ironic that I've talked to more Brit's on this board while here in Minneapolis than while I was in England.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
