[4qd-bannvalley] Forthcoming Trip to USA

    Good luck in your journey to the US.  Having recently returned from a 2 
week trip to Ireland, I can offer several suggestions and warnings: 1) 
regardless of what your ears are telling you, it is in fact the same 
language over here; 2) driving on the right is far more intuitive than what 
they practice in Ireland (driving is easier for right-minded people;) 3) we 
have very few "roundabouts" and almost none of our signage is in Gaelic; and 
4) avoid the Guinness (it's actually made in Canada.)
    If you haven't been in the US before, you will soon discover that due to 
the frailties of the potato, the US is thoroughly an Irish colony (Boston as 
a particular example.)
    Good traveling.
