    Am getting an error on that link sir.

    Don't personally know of any English villages that are addicted to chess, but am aware of one or two that are addicted to candy floss.

    I'm a little suspicious sir that all the rook moves you are selling are diagonal in nature...

    I read this and thought, "Okay, what in the hell is candy floss?"

    I looked it up and found that it is what we in America call cotton candy. I'm always amazed at the differences in word usage between British and American speakers.
