Merry xmas from England

I'm in England over Christmas, visiting my girlfriend's mother in the town of Boston (the original one, not the new one in the USA).

Today, we went on a day trip to Skegness, a seaside village with the slogan "Skegness, it's so bracing".

While trudging through the wet, cold wind, we came across "Café Mooch" http://www.moochperfectgifts.co.uk/ and I just had to take a picture. I (just) managed a smile before scampering off to the fish & chips place, where the grease serves as so much fuel to keep the body warm.

To all of you who are enjoying a few days off from work, enjoy your holidays, and happy mooching!

Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a wonderful holiday in England. I've always loved the countryside there as well although haven't been in quite a number of years.

Hi John,

It surely looks as if you will have a Very Merry One. Meanwhile, spare a thought for Athens, the capital of this "financially destroyed nation", its streets overflowing with beggars and homeless people. And to think that in the old days they used to call Edinburg "Athens of the North"…

Merry Christmas! The Mooch Café sounds like a good place to eat. I'm hungry. Never traveled over there, but I'm an Anglophile and I love English mysteries. I didn't know there was a Boston over there.
