but he likes other parts of London, and as I've said before he doesn't like Reading but quite likes Brighton.

I have some titles with stories in Brighton, but they might not be suitable for a young boy... *smiles*

you did not mention his age by the way.
Would he like A Bear Called Paddington or is it the name he dislikes ?

He's 19

He probably bitterly resents the fact that the cute little wellies no longer fit him then!!! - LOL!!! :o>

Well, I'm quite partial to cute red wellies myself! - and I'm 44 - so I understand his frustration!!! x

There seems to be some confusion here
Paddington is a district within the City of Westminster, in central London, England. Formerly a metropolitan borough, it was integrated with Westminster and Greater London in 1965. Three important landmarks of the district are Paddington station, designed by the celebrated engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and opened in 1847; St Mary's Hospital and Paddington Green Police Station (the most important high-security police station in the United Kingdom).
A major project called Paddington Waterside aims to regenerate former railway and canal land between 1998 and 2018, and the area is seeing many new developments

No, I'm sorry - but THAT is the myth that they just want you to believe.
Paddington is actually an adorable little bear form Darkest Peru - I know because I've met his Great Aunt Lucy.

No confusion, we know Paddington but maybe he is associating the name with a bad childhood experience?

I love his hat too :) send my regards to great Aunt Lucy. I have heard she brews a wonderful cup of tea and her scones are yummy.

OK, then explain why he doesn't like Tavistock.

Ha, Ha, Ha!!! - Interesting idea French?
Do you think his mother made him wear one of those hats with the little furry ears on!!! ;o>

Because they prefer Devon honey to marmalade, of course!

He likes most other parts of London and will gladly give up his seat on a bus for God if he is travelling with you and the elderly probably Jesus as well.

Do I have to call the Secure Unit again, Stella?!

Frenchie says:
euh, who is Stella?

Frenchie says:
he is a very well educated young man.

In reply to an earlier post on 2 Jul 2012 11:22:33 BDT
It's my pet name for him, French!
I like to wind him up and then watch him go!
He keeps changing his username to confuse us - so I keep feminising it to annoy him!!! :o>

I can never recognise a name changed.

Well, with Las Bogas/Colin/Stintoto Trebostine -
I click on the username if I think that it might be him and then see if the reviews and wishlists match his from the last time I looked!

Frenchie says:
clever :) I knew Stintoto was not his real name. Who would have this kind of name?

Posted on 2 Jul 2012 12:19:04 BDT
You will find Stintoto Trebostine all over the place in lots of forums!
When he was Las Bogas he used "Stintoto Trebostine" as an imaginary product brand to see if he could stir up some action and I think he has been chased out of everywhere now by the more obsessed forum purists! So that's why he took shelter with us instead under our special Amazon Protection Scheme for the chronically confused and misunderstood!
