    Mark I know your area very well! My boyfriend works at the Mini plant! I live in a village called Brill, if you've ever been more towards Aylesbury way you might know it?

    Jaylee that's awesome! Im so excited because Aerosmith are my favs but I love Motörhead too and two years ago I went to a memorial concert for Jim Marshall where Phil Campbell lead guitarist was playing... Then got VIP after party tickets where I met him, Kerry king and Kate moss!! Best night of my life :) plus still in touch with Phils son! Sorry to bore you with that story but what a night xxx

    Blimey Alan!! You gotta lot going on!!

    Thank you everyone for sharing! Sometimes on a forum doing things like this helps break the ice and build relationships :) bit nicer than just commenting on random threads but actually getting to know the people we are talking to :)

    And mark it's a very small world!!

    I'm Kim and I live in Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley (posh speak for East Lancashire :) ). A few more miles and I would be in the west riding of Yorkshire. I can see Pendle Hill from my house - setting for novels "Mist over Pendle" and "Lancashire Witches".
