. My wife and me toured California for a month about ten years ago.

Us too GB but more like 16 years ago, same thing in the hotel we had a ceaser salad with extra plate and then the coach driver arrived so we got yet another plate and still had plenty, also liked the cafĂ©'s that gave you as much as you could eat for one price but above all the courteous nature of the Americans we met as in four of us at the bar three sitting one standing so a perfect stranger gives us his seat  and sits elsewhere, leaves a warm and welcoming feeling

Given it must be pretty much pounds fro dollars at the moment, it may not seem so bad.

Well GB, if you ever come this side of the pond and you start to miss your chip buntie, go to the nearest chip shop and have a go at this;

Putting aside the heart attack on bread, the only thing I object to is calling the English Channel "the pond".

I agree Richard. The pond is the Atlantic or Pacific. The bit between Australia and New Zealand is called the ditch.

Agreed, that term usually refers to the Atlantic ocean.

Tell the EU to get stuffed. It is The English Channel & always will be. No wonder the Brits voted to get out. Spending our money to insult us.

A slip of the tongue or something lost in translation and you jump on it flag waving and hurling insults, this is why this forum avoids political reference wherever we can.
I'm not going to counter any of your comments with more comments    just ask you to consider how your post goes down with our many EU members and those Brits on the other 48% side   just tone it down

Let's settle for "North sea" then.
Which actually is what's between England and Belgium (and Holland)
The Channel, or La Manche in French, is the stretch between England and France.

Yeah, Guys. I was just making a joke about a bit of slang, not one thing else. If anything the right response might have been, "Richard, stop being a word nerd."
