Where do you get the prices? That's amazing! Are they American prices or UK prices? Just curious...we have no lords here, do we? (smile)

of all places, it was a link through the Weather Channel's site: www.weather.com

It sounded like a U.S. firm name - actually it sounded like an investment firm, like wealth management something-or-other.

Lords? Well, there are the fucktards on Wall Street who obviously think they're the Lords of Creation... and apparently, like the House of Lords in the U.K., we can't manage to get rid of them, either.
