    Thank you, Jeremy. Very kind of your to share your thoughts. I would certainly be a weird American in the UK. If I tried to blend in, I would be found leering with curiosity at the locals.The Window screens? Don’t they have the same bugs that we have? Are they trying not to deplete their ore? I do have a nagging question? Did I hear correctly that there are houses that have no heating systems, and the people just bundle up in their houses? I might be able to handle that because I’m bundled up right now!

    Sure do. Couldn’t figure out why.

    It may be similar to the reason their W/Cs have separate cold and hot taps. It’s always been that way and people expect it.

    I didn’t see that! It would take a lot of bundling (thought not as much as Rochester, NY). It’s a bit more temperate surrounded by ocean. It was rare to have A/C (they call it “air con”). I only saw it in the newer office buildings, but never in homes.
