Odd London 2009
Upper left - this was a photo of a gas station - nothing odd, right? But from what my "local" contact said, this was one of VERY few in central London, and extremely rare. I guess the local laws and high property values make this an expensive proposition. It did seem very busy. I guess you can't drive around with your tank on "E" in London.
Upper middle - "Reject Pot Shop" - what a great name for a crockery / cooking store
Upper right - there was a display of English rock bands, and if you look closely at the hats you can see "The Who" and "The Beatles" but how the heck did "Motley Crue" get in there?
Lower left - SMARTIES - you can get them in the UK and in Canada but not in the United States. They are like M&M's but way better - they are bigger than the chocolate ones (not peanut), come in cooler flavors, and have a better candy "shell". If you see them, give them a try
Lower middle - a betting parlor. They are all over in the UK, as they are in Australia. The world doesn't seem to come to an end when sports betting is allowed, does it?
Lower right - when we were in the "Underground" I saw an ad for the city of Chicago. The funny part is that beach scene on Lake Michigan with no one else around. At least we are trying
