    I'm not sure Paxo? it could have been for several reasons? It could have been an escort for politician, mayor Bloomberg or something. One thing you will see alot of are police cars and taxi cabs in NYCo_O

    Can you guys post pics of your trip when you can?:cool:

    I wish!! I've looked at them and they look no different :cry: They look ok from the knee down though! :lol:

    [/quote]Glad you and Paxo had fun:cool: I live about 15 mins from the Arena and was thinking about dropping by.[/quote]

    Aww, you should have come along to meet us! Serious question here - do people in New Jersey recognise English accents? It's just that when we went in the Arena to buy our tickets,this fella was talking to us about buying a "plan" and asking how often we came to the game, etc, and he didn't seem to realise we weren't locals, until we told him we were just there on holiday! (didn't see your offer of putting us in touch with your friend who sells tickets until we got home, by the way-but thanks anyway!)

    I'll post the ones we took on the digital camera, although we had a major disaster with it after the first day :( The camera went wrong, somehow and all the pics were coming out really blurred and too bright (no, it wasn't anything I did wrong!! lol), so we had to abandon using it. Luckily, I had also taken my old bog standard camera, as we had a couple of films that needed using up (thank god, otherwise we'd have had to buy a new camera whilst we were there!) Then on our last morning, I had the camera in my handbag ready for going home, and decided to try and take a few pics of my fave building (Chrysler)...and it was working ok again!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

    That's ok Sammi, I was hoping you'd see my post but figured you guys were already gone. As far as NJ people recognizing British accents go, I'd say it's hard not to tell because to be honest, British accents are sexy (NO not your Paxo!:lol: ) but I wouldn't let it both you because i've been in NYC and have heard people tell me " You have a Jersey accent":loco:

    I said "Jersey accent?" I live a few miles across the Hudson River and you said I have an accent?" :lol: fuckin New yorker!:lol:

    The guy talking to you probably was from NYC :p

    I would have liked to meet you guys but like I sadi, I'm flying over to London so who knows? maybe we can meet before one of the Maiden gigs.

    Now wouldn't this be a pisser if I went over there and someone didn't recognize MY accent? :lol:

    Whilst we were at Top Of The Rock, Dairmuid Gavin (a tv gardener/presenter) was filming up there! We didn't bother getting a pic with him though, we are not that sort of people!

    And we did manage to take in a gig, all two songs by P. Diddy, who was doing something for tv to promote his new album! We had the tv on in our hotel room and saw it was happening just around the corner from our hotel. So we went along, seeing as we were going that way anyway.

    Yeah it is a sad pic Golden Goose. I took it because Ground Zero is there, although you can't see it on the pic.

    I have to correct you there, Goose - what you should have said was "Mancunian" accents are sexy! :lol: :lol:


    :lol: :lol: I should imagine it will be no big deal in London, with the amount of American tourists they get - come to Manchester instead, and I'm sure the ladies will love your accent! :D I have to say (no offence intended) that most American accents grate on my nerves (but I have to say it's mostly when the women speak, as they are soooooo over the top and high pitched!) - but I found the New York (and NJ of course!) accents quite nice :)

    We did see the Flatiron Building, Goose - I took a pic of it on the other camera, so I'm hoping it turns out ok!!

    I just saw on the news last night that while they are starting to rebuild the site where the towers once stood, they are finding more human remains:erk:

    Quite naturally you have loved ones who think it's too early to rebuild and I guess they won't be happy until they get something tangible to bury.

    Ya know, I was thinking about the Manchester gig too:lol:

    I hear you with the accents and some American accents bother me too :zombie:

    Maybe I could tour Manchester but I don't think I'd get the same turnout as say..... Tom Jones:loco: :lol:

    Yeah, we saw that on the news whilst we were still over there :( Apparently, they were finding remains in all sorts of places whilst getting the area ready for re-building - so now the relatives want drains, grids, etc checking more thoroughly before any building begins. Quite right too - how can you move on with your own life if you can't really start to grieve for your loved ones? For the ones who had a body to bury, it was horrific enough - but I can't begin to imagine how the people must feel who have someone "missing" and can't put their loved ones to rest :cry:

    You should have done the Manchester gig, you'd have found the people here very friendly! :)

    I hope you do get to spend a couple of nights in New York, I don't think you'll regret it! Whereabouts in America does your dad live?
