    @Stephen Rundle , Is calling a woman who you do not know "love" acceptable?
    Is it sexist and potentially demeaning?

    Depends where you are from.

    In the North-west of England, it is used by both sexes to one another. So no, it is neither sexist nor demeaning.

    Southerners may think differently.

    And the context it is used in too.

    I just wondered on Stephen's thoughts as he really disliked the term lady/ladies.

    I suppose it depends on the context. If, for instance, you were on the phone making a customer complaint or similar then use of 'love' would be incredibly patronising.

    Again, I'm not sure about the NW. But they are a bit odd there.

    Be fair, you're in Cheshire.

    They're even stranger there.

    The north-west isn't one homogeneous community.
    Birth-wise, I'm from the SW of Manchester (hospital where the NHS was announced) and spent roughly an equal number of years, 10 each, in Urmston and later Cheadle, Cheshire. However we did know a family in Kirkham (Fylde) very well, and in some ways that was like a different country with its very familiar habits and social mores. It was National Service in the RAF which introduced me to other areas of the country, the people, particularly Londoners and their use of language.
    Being moved to Cheadle at age 10 by my father's job moving to Cheshire, was probably the best thing which happened to me.

    The area of Manchester I'm from, Wythenshawe, was originally in Cheshire before they bought up the land to build "a Garden City".

    That's quite a good book, BTW.

    Llanberis, the slate quarry. It really is grey around there.

    I said it, I hate being right

    Post started August 1st, now 20th, 5 days out but it started going up a week back.

    UK coronavirus death toll in huge leap to more than 17,000 after another 873 die

    The UK's daily coronavirus death toll has seen a huge rise amid signs that the curve is flattening and Britain is reaching its peak as NHS staff are left waiting for new stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE)
