Good American things

There are some things in America that really need to become common in England.

1. Huggers [things to keep your beer cold]
2. Coolers [also things to keep your beer cold]
3. Lawn chairs [folding lightweight aluminium/canvas ones with a little bag and strap]
4. Boiled peanuts
5. Post-hole diggers [how do we manage without these?]

All of the above are non-invasive ways to make your life so much more pleasant.



1. I have one of these - put it in the freezer and then slid your beer into it. Available in all good supermarkets
2. See 1.
3. Yeah we got these, had them for ages!
4. Ummm not sure... ick?
5. Mechanical? Manual? I've used both in the past. Not THAT common though, it's true.

1. Wrong. Not something you put in the freezer. Something you just always have in your bag/pocket, made of foam.

2. Coolers here are just different animals. Shapes, sizes, function.

3. Yes, but not everyone has them like here. Only keen fishermen, in England, if they are the things that I'm thinking of. We have similar, but like 2, they are just nowhere near as good.

4. Yum. Yum. Yum.

Have you seen the newer chairs with the little footrests?! Too relaxing. I need one badly. :)

You could always send them some grits too, you know. Heh!
