Just noticed I wrote 'it may be worth pretending your Canadian'. That should, of course, have been 'you're Canadian'. I'm soooo embarrassed. I even write and proofread for a living! Aaarrgghhh! Anyway, moving swiftly on, I agree with Sarah's suggestion on the maze. I'm not a drinker so I can't comment on the Pimms - although if you're still in the country on 21 June, you could always have some Pimms with strawberries and cream at the Wimbledon tennis championships. Be careful with the Strongbow though, it's potent stuff! Be warned that apple cider/scrumpy is always alcoholic over here, and usually quite strongly so. I've got a few American friends here who have fallen foul of that particular difference in the use of English! I hope you have enough time over here to enjoy the sights. If you're visiting St Paul's Cathedral (highly recommended) and decide to walk to the Tate Modern, crossing the Millennium footbridge, feel free to stop for coffee in the lovely cafe in The Salvation Army's International Headquarters. If you ask for Kevin (I work in editorial on the building) I'll try to get you staff discount in the cafe! Kevin

Congrats, enjoy and drink some Pimms and Strongbow while you are there! Hampton Court is a very cool palace, if you have time you ought to check out the hedge maze. As a self professed anglophile (I studied abroad at Oxford) let me know if you need any UK suggestions!

That's fantastic news for your fans over here. At last! Any chance you can fit in a small gig just on your own. There are lots of good venues in London. You do realise you'll be here while the football (soccer!) world cup is on? If the USA beat England on 12 June it may be worth pretending your Canadian while you're here! ha ha! Hampton Court Palace is an AMAZING place (almost 500 years old and steeped in history) and I'm sure the festival there will be astonishing. It's a bit, erm, posh though. Tickets START at £60 (almost $90)! A bit out of my league. The other concert looks very intriguing and there's nothing better than an outdoor concert at a beautiful stately home. Just hope the weather holds. I am interested to know how you linked up with Katherine Jenkins. She may well be the loveliest thing to have come out of Wales (JOKE - though she is particularly pleasing on the eye ...) but most of her fans will be into classical music - even if it's the lighter side of classical. I like you both but you don't seem a natural pairing. Anyway, great news! Kevin

GBPF says: (2 minutes ago) O-O-O-O-O-H-H-H-H-H my goodness! Congratulations to you on your upcoming date in England! It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of 10 guys! Will be alerting a friend in Germany that a trip to England will be good in June. I have been a fan of y'all for the past 2 years while she is quite taken with El Divo. Once she sees y'all she'll be broadening her horizons! Much luck to you---may your good times continue to roll!

This is great!! I know you've gotten a lot of requests to head that way. Better stay stocked up on camera batteries! The photos you get over there will be incredible. (Try not to fly through volcanic ash, though.)
