    Tooooo funny, I just found this the other day by mistake. I was looking for a plce in London, and forgot that I had my default home address here in the states saved. When I saw the line across the Atlantic, I had to look at the directions. It must have been late at night, because I cold not stop laughing out loud. Did not seem so funny in the cold light of day.
