The application form for the auction site in the UK prompts you to such geographical inaccuracy. It's almost like using Encarta to tell the history of Earth - pretty rough overall. For instance, I am about 60 miles from London, but I had to put London (not Cambridge) as the area.

Anyway John, I don't know if you are from the West Country, but Bristol is close enough... it's "over there" :>)).

All the best

 Watch out for this guy, I have bid on some of his auctions where he has

 $10 [maybe I should some of mine?].

Whoever he is, he has no sense of geography at all! Says he's located in
Helston, Cornwall [~25 miles due east of Lands End] but gives the
country and region as "United Kingdom, Bristol". Bit like saying that
New York City is located in "United States, Boston, MA".
