    I love Manhattan, because the people I met there were so nice and surprisingly curious. For instance, they would say: "Oh you speak with an accent, where are you from...?" I think that's nice.

    They all speak with an accent in Manhattan!
    They should be used to it.

    I love rediscovering a food I rejected as a child, because it looked or smelt funny.

    I recently had this experience with beetroot.

    I love golf because it affords me exercise, camaraderie and most importantly a "19th Hole" where more banter and camaraderie are enjoyed with even more exercise (the elbow and jaw).

    I love composing music because it keeps my mind young.

    The funniest accent in Manhattan is British.

    Blimey!

    I love over the board chess.
    This site is great but very different from playing in a tournament.

    In Dallas my English accent (with a slight Mancunian twinge) was mistaken on no fewer than FIVE occasions for that of an Australian accent!!??

    I love watching my daughter run across a field with our dogs.

    I love dipping toast into runny eggs.

    I love the first mouthful of red wine on a Friday evening.

    I love watching a good Youtube video of Karma!

    I love a wood fire when I know it will last to bedtime.

    I love getting questions correct on "The Chase"

    I love mornings because then I will have my first cup of coffee of the day (coffee/milk 50/50), toast, butter and marmelade - best meal of the day.

    Americans have very rarely done a good Aussie accent in the movies,so I guess life imitates art.
    I love all the things that I've read about so far.
    Especially the music writing. I'm still trying to write the perfect rock song πŸ™‚

    I love getting in the zone ... it happens so rarely. If there was a sure fire cocktail that would get me there, I'd be there.
