Rumours abound that Britney has named her baby after a Lancashire town.Is it true she's called her boy PRESTON (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4250454.stm).
If so isn't it great??
Better than calling it Barnsley for instance.:yuk:

I always thought Asquith would be a nice name ;)

It's a good job she didn't call the baby "Chuck"

I sailed to England from Australia in 1967, with my parents of course, because a five week trip on the Fairsky was cheaper than an airfare. We were sat at a table at the beginning of the trip and that's where we stayed. Our partners at dinner were Terry and Lyn. For five looo...nnn...gggg weeks.

Terry and Lyn had come to Australia as ten quid migrants, and after whingeing their way through everything Australia tried to provide for them, they decided to go back home two years later. We were fortunate enough to be their tablemates.

I was initially shocked at how badly these poor people had apparently been treated in the colonies; after all I was still fourteen and innocent in the real ways of the world.

It appeared they had not been treated with the respect they deserved; they may have been menial workers but they were English and didn't deserve abuse from colonial oiks. Terry should have been given preference over the colonials for process worker positions because he had experience in assembly lines in England. Besides that, Australia had no kulcha. The pubs shut at 6pm. As for this wog shit we had to put up with every night (on the Sitmar line) thank Christ for the once a week attempt at a genuine English roast, however pathetic it may have been.

You have no idea how long five weeks can be. Eventually my patient father exploded. Well, in fact at the table he simply voiced his previously held opinion that Terry was a whingeing Pom who gave his countrymen a bad name; it was only when we got back to our cabin that he unleashed a fury I had never seen from him. In hindsight I admire his restraint.

Terry was from Preston. I'll never forget that.

The pubs shut at 6pm. I find that hard to believe...unless of course if was from the previous evening and they reopened at 7pm.

Oh indeed yes, the pubs did shut at 6 pm in Oz in the sixties cept in NSW where they stayed open until 10 pm if memory serves.
Small wonder them Ozzies were all daft as brushes.

16th Sep 2005, 15:52
Nope. Took a referendum to revoke 6pm closing. talk about backward!

Then I went to England in 1992, and the pub I was staying in shut down and wouldn't serve me a drink after 2pm on Sunday. Que???? What was that about English civilisation?

Met an engineer in California by name of Preston. Henceforth, any piece of equipment that failed noisily and spectacularly after maintenance was said to have been "Prestonised".:E

Okay, I'll risk hijacking the thread. wikidedia knows it all (well, almost.):

> Zappa was married twice, once to Kay Sherman (19591964; no children), and then to Gail (Sloatman) Zappa, with whom he remained until his death. They have four children: Moon Unit, Dweezil (born Ian Donald Calvin Euclid Zappa, (the names of his band members) because the hospital refused to put Dweezil on the birth certificate; Dweezil later legally changed his name to "Dweezil") ("Dweezil" is also the name Frank had given to one of Gail's toes), Ahmet Emuukha Rodan, and Diva Muffin. One time he was a guest on the Tonight Show, chatting with guest-host Jay Leno. Leno asked Zappa why he had given his children such unusual names. Zappa answered, in a casual tone of voice, "Because I wanted to!" And that was that. Zappa once said in an interview that if their names ever gave them problems, it would be because of the last name.

Well, Zappa surely had a nerve! :}

Diva Muffin

Absolutely brilliant. He didn't have one called Mary Huff as well did he?
