Personal Observations

Seriously, there are a number of features to recommend the Discover. I even owned one (a year of frustration, anger, and boredom, waiting for roadside assistance and monthly repairs).

One of the world's richest languages (see works of William Shakespeare). Pubs, with their hand crafted beers and ales , songs, darts, and good fellowship.

The Trifle a fancy desert of sponge cake, custard, fruit, jam, whipped cream...
