Almost ready to go

I finished the rough budget for our trip to the UK, and we came up $700 short for the group (Total budget for group is about $18,500). Of course, I figured every expense as high as I dared, in order to leave wiggle room. But what it comes down to is, we're not going to be able to afford about 45 GBP (c. $90) each in admissions and activities. But considering the punishing number of things we say we want to do/see/visit/tour, my guess is time, travel deadlines, and lack of energy will whittle down the list of admissions that much easily. (The total for admissions and activities came to almost $3000 for the whole group, and would kill a carthorse to do them all.) The crew will just have to watch the money carefully and make choices as we go.

So, as near as can now be figured, we're dead on. Can I cook, or can I cook?
