Nice to see an East Ender .... <g>

The latest Travel & Leisure magazine has a feature on the changing East End! Certainly different to 20 years ago when I still lived in the Manchester area ...

Greetings from warm and sunny St Petersburg .... Florida where the sea water temperature is 84 F

I think he means the town in Cape Province, not the Eastend.

Unless they have a Lincolnshire in Cape Province; any Londoner would regard that as emigrating! <g>

But no doubt all will be revealed .....

Yes indeed! I am referring to London, England. I and my two (recently re-qualified as single) children, will be living with me, at least for the foreseeable future, when we move out to Lincolnshire, near 'The Wash'. Where apparently, my present, one bedroom flat (apartment), is worth a four bedroom detached house. I currently live roughly four miles away from the 2012 Olympic games site. And I am assured that, that will raise house prices, in this area.

Reminds me when I was running a business up in Manchester once getting a letter from Australia that had been to 3 different Manchesters in the USA and on the envelope the Manchester NH PO had finally written:

Try England

Judging from here in the USA just renting out a house or flat for the Olympics should be very profitable -- a lot of friends I had in Atlanata GA did that when the Olympics were there.

Olympics in London again takes me back! It was my first summer vacation in 1948 after starting at Oxford University and many of us got jobs working the Olympic Games -- I was assigned to the Mexican team and lived with them in a school in Wembley, not far from the stadium. So travelling with them I got to see some of the events -- particularly the opening and closing -- and for some reason have a visual memory of Herne Hill and the speed cycling events on the track there. I believe they are going to be back there again.

I think there's someone here who lives in East Anglia but not sure where.

If you're moving near Boston, it seemed to me a very nice town when I stopped there for lunch a few years ago.

What do you regard as East London? It's very ambiguous these days, since all those Essex towns were appropriated by London: Stratford, Ilford, Dagenham, Hornchurch, Romford—all those places east of the River Lee have been lost, most of them since 1960.

I'm in Ipswich (England, not Australia, Canada, or USA), and there's the chap who's keen on photography in Manningtree, which isn't strictly in East Anglia, which on the banks of the Stour estuary.

Yep! Got it in two! Ilford, to be precise. We are actually considering Spalding (Lincs). My son has to be within reasonable commuting distance to London, as he is a driver on the Underground (tube). A very well paid job, that he loves. A colleague of his, already does the journey, daily and finds it, no big deal.
My daughter has some reservations about the flatness of the area, as she currently lives in Scotland. Below (hopefully) is the view from the kitchen window, when you are up to your elbows in the washing up.
