That's odd, is this the first time they haven't loaded? Maybe it's my server.

I had something similar happen to me when I accidentally changed my security settings on my browser (Firefox). They're loading for me and they're fab; as ever.

Nostalgia
*sigh*

Seeing these lovely pics of Trafalgar Square, Nelson's Column, the National Gallery, etc. (Hell, the PUBS!) makes me wish I could visit London again soon. It's been nearly 15 years.

As always, thanks for sharing.

Re: Nostalgia
I hope you're able to visit again someday soon!

It's a shame that cross-Atlantic travel is so expensive. We're about to buy our tickets for America in September and it looks like we'll be paying around £1,000 +. It's gone up nearly £200 per person since we last travelled in Sept.. I certainly hope it doesn't continue to rise or else I'll only be able to see my family in the heart of winter.

Believe me, me too. My wife would love to visit as well, but she has high ambitions of seeing London, Wales, Scotland, etc. in one trip.

1000 Each?!?! Or Total?

oh my god, sooooo good! It's almost too easy to drink, I had about 3 bottles that eve and I'm developing an addiction. I can't find it in very many pubs (the brewer is Wells).

It doesn't rate highly on most of those beer rating websites- some complain it has an artificial taste- but I haven't noticed this myself. So screw em, I love it. :)

"Do chuggers bother you when you want to rock up to a restaurant with your cockapoo to hoover a supersized ruby murray?"
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?! hehehe

and, have you ever heard of 'happy slapping?' a violent new london trend..

Not sure what a "chugger" or "cockapoo" is, but "hoover" means eating fast and "ruby murray" is curry.

Yes, happy slapping is apparently becoming more and more common, often in schools and parks. I haven't witnessed it myself.
