Well Lancaster's gain would be our loss - but cat's are very important.

Lancaster is the devil you know and it's near some marvellous coutryside.

But never mind that - I am now addicted to *zookeeper* and it's all your fault.

You could also count the following as a reason for moving to Manchester:

... and Lou Reed playing his full 'Berlin' album on the June 29th.

Just saying 'Hello' to another 'Lubin.' (Ha, ha).

Fact that both Lancaster and Manchester are way more friendly than London even knows how to be +5

Is London really unfriendly?

...they say that about Manhattan and it is not true.

However, Boston is not a very friendly sort of place. You sort of have to force people to notice you.

San Francisco is very friendly, but a bit surface. ...and, sometimes it's best to wear gloves.
