I'm from Rayleigh, only about 10 minutes drive from Pitsea! Small world!! I used to go to the market at Pitsea on Sundays every so often. It may have changed since you were here though. There is a great big Tesco just off the roundabout (I don't know if that has always been there actually, but it has definitely been made much bigger in recent years) and there is a big development in Basildon now with hotels, UCI cinema, restaurants, bowling etc called the festival leisure park (so much for the old Robin's cinema!). They have finally cleaned the slimy green statue/fountain in Basildon (outside woolworths) recently!!<br><br><br><br>
I hope that made <i>some</i> sense to you!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I'm from Woking, in Surrey... famous for Paul Weller, Status Quo, trees and some ridiculously posh people... but according to the poll, I am the only southerner here ~sniff~

Forgive my ignorance, but what is Planet Vega? Does that have something to do with Las Vegas? That's the only think I can think of, plus I have a vague recollection of some explorer from awhile ago being named Vega.<br><br><br><br>
I am not from the UK and have never been there (yet), but my ancestors hailed from Scotland (hence my last name), Wales, and England. I haven't been able to dig up a confirmed N. Irish ancestor yet. Someday I plan to visit all of the countries that once homed my relatives from the most recent centuries, but so far I haven't the money to visit the aforementioned regions plus Norway, Sweden, Germany, and Austria.

Planet Vega......<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
It's where us Vegans came from before the spaceship landed us here to interbreed with humans...

It made TOO MUCH sense!!! WOW it really is a small world, huh? I used to walk through Pitsea market on my way to school! I lived about 5 minutes walk from there. Last year I stayed at the motel at Festival (the one back by the little pub, not the one by Pizza Hut). One of my old mates works at the "club" there. And yes, the Tescos there is VERY familiar, although I know from recent visits how much it has expanded from when I was a kid there.<br><br><br><br>
Wow, I'm really homesick now!

Essex accents suck in my opinion! I lived in Hertfordshire for 5 years so I try not to speak like I'm from Canvey Island! If I was Max Power I would have got rid of any hint of an Essex accent pretty sharpish! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Then again, my friend travelled around the States for a few months & the laydees <b>loved</b> his accent! He's never been so lucky! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Hertfordshire is where I was born and lived until I was 15. Bushey/Watford. I went back for a look a few years ago and it was <b>all different</b> Roads, flyovers, shops, new houses aghh I might as well have been in Liverpool for all I recognised of the places.
