Thanks for friending me, Hutch. And thank you for the Jobcentre Plus factoid. I'm always happy to learn new bits of info about the UK. Of course, here in the states, what you refer to as Jobcenter Plus is what we call "the unemployment department". Very unoriginal. I think I like Jobcentre Plus much better.
I currently live in Nevada, but originally hail from Southern California. Years ago I met a couple from England who were vacationing in Palm Springs, California (my hometown), where they told me the British have a romance with the old west, cowboys and Indians. (It was from this couple that I first heard the expression, "the colonies".) I found this info very interesting, especially in light of so many Americans having a romance with England, Scotland, and Ireland. ;)
