What do you miss about England that America doesn’t immediately offer?

The candy 🙂 And now there’s even a ban on the import of some British candy to the US.

When I was growing up in England I was always frustrated by what seemed like an irrational level of respect for older people there. And I often said that England would be a good place to be older in, but wasn’t a good place to be young in. Unfortunately in the intervening decades I think the attitude in England has changed, so this wasn’t a good thing to look forward to 🙂

I always enjoy visiting England, and it’s fun to contrast attitudes in the US and UK. And I think I can at least still imitate the most British “jolly good show” kinds of things….
