Welcome to TFK!

For the record, I'd take English weather over Californian any day of the week.

Honestly? Grey skys for about 9 months of the year and the other 3 are not much better. Summer is about 2 days of sun followed by a thunder storm!

California looks very attractive from this side of the pond.

I am originally from Nottingham (Robin Hood and all that!) and my team, Nottingham Forest are known as the Garibaldi Reds due to the fact they have worn red shirts in honour of Giuseppe Garibaldi since their inception in 1865. I wonder if your state fish is named after him aswell?

Hope I haven't bored you.

Bored me? Heck, no! I love learning new things.
From the Monterey Bay Aqaurium's website:

"In the 1840s, an Italian named Giuseppe Garibaldi decided to start wearing bright-red shirts as part of his personal style. He went on to fight for the reunification of Italy, became a general and died a national hero. So when biologists discovered a brilliant red-orange fish cruising the rocky reefs of California—one that sallied out to bare its teeth at any intruder—they knew exactly what to name it."

And you're right, I wouldn't trade your weather for mine. However, I think I would gladly trade some California culture for some Liverpool culture!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Hey Tomsk

Thanks for the welcome. The Garibaldi biscuit is in my opinion a very under rated tea time accompaniment.

Is that Tomsk as in Uncle Bulgeria et al?

Cheers

Well we were European Capital of Culture 2008!

Garibaldi must be up there in the Most things named after 1 person top ten!
