Credit card thing for renting a car pre-dates the EU, so it's not that.
Yipes, no petrol in Blacklion? Is the price at that Beleek station the
same at both sets of pumps? I wasn't planning to go into the Republic
except to get gas since I figured I'd save a few dollars.
Yes, Scotland needs to consider the border issue (with England) if they
vote again. But if they do, remaining UK is more isolated behind its
