Buddy,

 

You are right, there have been a fair few from Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland who registered but seem have vanished. Wonder where they went, perhaps the is a serial killer hunting down diabetics in our part of the world.... Or maybe I should stop watching criminal minds

Hey! I'm an ex-pat from Wales (or Whales as Bountyman says)...:) Now living in Eastern Ontario, but born in Cardiff some 76 years ago...indeed to goodness! (typical Welsh saying)..:)

Nice to see someone from the U.K. I am still in touch with many old friends and family there and visit some time when I can.

I don't post a lot, but do enjoy reading all the new posts every day and have learned a lot from them. Great forum here!

WHALES? You're not really from the UK, are you! :cool:

 

Thanks for your supportive pun, there's nothing fishy about the Welsh folks, according to our great history, the lands was once owned and still is, If my memory serves me right by Royalty.

A famous guy called His Royal Highness- THE PRINCE OF WALES. First to our great Royal throne still runs the place. :D

 

May be corrected for the above.

As a child, on Sunday afternoons when we'd visit my Paternal Grandparents in Dagenham (Essex) we'd either drive through the tunnel or take the Woolwich ferry

 

Sarah Palin... heh heh heh! :D

The area has become quite a talking point in my house hold, friends of the family lives there, does one, still has to ferried across? I'm straight up the A13, next to LAKESIDE, literally breaths the place minutely.

 

Any how, thanks for support and response.

Nah, there's a busy railway station there and the DLR got extended last year as well, so it's dead easy to get around. Can get to Central London in 20 minutes and (heaven forfend) Romford in about an hour (roundabout trip on the DLR, Jubilee line to West Ham and then national rail). Technically Paris is only half an hour away as you can get to London City Airport in 5 minutes too.

 

The ferry's still there (I live about 300m away from one of the stops) but I've not used it myself as it doesn't really take me to anywhere I want to go.

Hi Deus!

Thanks for bringing me up to speed, a very long time ago, probably some 25 to 30 years, worked and lived in Wandsworth Battersea, with a young family and poor housing, it was always my intention to move away from London, and move into the suburbs. 1980 made the moved, never looked back. Things were so much better for the family after the moved, better schooling, therefore better education, much better housing, the job prospects greatly improved, and a better social and conservative way of living, just love it in ESSEX.

 

Romford, West Ham and East Ham. Know these areas very well, actually; Once had a job in Romford for a short period, and still have friends in East Ham and West Ham, go there from time to time.

 

Well! Thanks for the update Woolwich/London and our little chat was appreciated.
