    This is totally me. I find things by landmarks. To find my house, I turn at the white fence.

    OMG, that is me exactly

    If someone says go north my eyes glaze over and it sounds like they are speaking in tongues or something :rolleyes008:

    We won't even mention the time I was standing in the middle of the MK and could not for the life of me think how to get to the HM :sigh;

    She will have the choice of listening to male/females with an American, British, or Australian accents. I tried the Australian but he was a little harder to understand.

    :p she made me listen to the British lady when we were in CA. I could understand about every 3rd word. We couldn't understand the Autralian lady at all. Which is strange because I understand what our lovely kazzaqld says :p015:

    No I mean who were the people doing the GPS voices? Were they famous or just a random Aussie voice?
