By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    If only 10% of Brits have never been anywhere outside of Britain, this means a big majority have travelled abroad. unlike where in the USA over 80% of Americans haven't even got passports.

    I think £800 for a pair of second hand knickers is a bit rich.

    Gold plated panties? You certainly need to be rich to afford them at this price!

    I think the majority of people will have hopped over to France at some point. It's not a very long journey.

    Actually Spain is more popular with the Brits @GemmaRowlands. I think France comes a close second though.
