Something helpful...maybe?

I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds by posting here, but I found something I'd like to share.
I'm trying not to embarrass myself with my BB story by using to many 'americanisms'. I found a website that 'translates' americanisms into brit speak for the uninitiated! It may not be as helpful as I'd hoped, but I did find it quite amusing. The website is

http://septicscompanion.com

Use the browse by category option of the left to search for topics of interest (not really sure why it defaults to sex.... hmmm....). I was wandering around the 'Travel and Transport' topic and found the 'caravan' and 'lay-by' definitions to be quite amusing (if not totally true!)

Anyway - hope you enjoy it and for those of us from 'across the pond' - it just may prove useful too!
