We planned to go to Napa for a night in our new RV to try our 'hooking up' to the electric and water supplies.... Oh, and also learning how to 'dump our waste! Not very glamorous.

Little did they know I was sat right by them. They were talking about English soccer players and how most of them are school drop outs and completely illiterate. Basically they have not got 2 brain cells to rub together as they do not have a college degree. To some extent ...
