The recognition factor has doubled recently. As you're walking down the street they stare and point. A girl pointed at me the other day, she didn't say anything, just pointed. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to react.
An ideal trip would be to Scotland. If it's a sunny day there is nothing nicer than flying into Glasgow airport. You get a full range of hills to look at. Skiing would be even more ideal. I've only just become a skier, a slider is probably a better description. On the bar front I'd head for The Baby Grand, Elmbank Gardens, Glasgow (041-248 4942), a nice place for a beer or coffee. My idea of a good night is to go for a meal somewhere. I'd go to Rogano's, Exchange Place (041- 248 4055) which is an art deco fish restaurant. They have panels from the QE2 with a beautiful maple veneer. I wouldn't go to the theatre or a club. I got home at 1.30 in the morning the other day and it nearly killed me.
