    That Moët is pronounced "mo-ette", not "mo-ay" or "mo-ee". It's dutch.

    That when you're going straight ahead on a roundabout, you do NOT indicate "Right"! It is in the road rules... But one trip down the road quickly shows me that lots of people don't know their rules!

    In WA you have to indicate as you approach the exit.

    Oh I thought you tapped the top of fizzy cans to stop the spray. I always through habit tap the top
