That last comment has completely lost me?

I can only assume you mean c gas if you are referring to hot rods?

I know Warrington is greater Manchester, is St Helens Merseyside or Greater Manchester? I know it's the rugby league part of the world. Isn't johnny Vagas from St Helens? He sounds more manc than scouse, that's the only reason I ask.

Not that I have anything against scouse land but, (and I know it sounds like a sterotype) the only time i've ever been to liverpool i had my car stereo swiped and my side window put through (just outside of anfield). It's the Only time I've had my car done and I live in Leith.

PS I wasn't visiting anfield I was dropping something off to someone who lives near by. I prefer the blue half if i had to pick.

I do not actually live in Warrington itself, but near a village called Daresbury (where Lewis Caroll was born).

Just to clarify matters, Warrington is certainly not in Greater Manchester and is in Cheshire.

As for Liverpool, I know what you mean lol. My in laws live there and some areas are really really rough. I am a Derby lad (for our USA members, this is almost Robin Hood country) and certainly do not support either Liverpool or Everton. I am a Ram through and through (in Clough we trust).

Any advice on what type of uke I should be looking to buy anyone?

So Warrington is Cheshire. I always presumed it was greater manchester because it's just down the road from trafford and the like.
I Used to go to the Ikea there.
As for derby, i thought they were sacking clough off?

As a starter uke that you think you'll take seriously and not throw away after a day, I'd go for a Kala (brand), it's very hard to go wrong with them. Great wee things for the money.
