    Well, they are all used as informal measurements and comparisons.  The length of a London bus; as in the latest massive ship is the length of 58 London buses; that was on TV the other night.  An area the size of a football pitch, the Isle of Wight, and a very common one - Wales, they say it all the time - and lastly, an area the size of France.

    Brilliant Welshonion  - that has been on my mind all night, and now i have the answer. You could add an Olympic Size Swimming Pool to your list too - a very common comparator for volume.  Wonder who dreamt them up to start with?

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

  • Oh Dear!

    It was not my intention to upset anybody. I was just responding to a member looking for good gardening questions with verified answers. I do not have a website to promote, I'm just a freelance writer for the media. I'm a keen gardener of many years standing and have written questions for many TV shows, which include The Weakest Link, Telly Addicts and Garden Invaders. Also, some of my clients are well-known horticultural societies and gardening clubs, who use my services because many questions on the internet, including gardening questions, are unfortunately repetitive and not always correct. I'm merely offering an alternative to seriously minded quiz people.
