    That reminds me of the headline in a British (have to say that because it's published all over the UK) newspaper a few years ago when there was a really bad fog in the Channel (note it's just "the Channel", everyone knows it's the English Channel):

    "Fog in Channel, Europe cut off from Britain"

    :laugh:

    Apparently you could hear the cheering at Hadrian's Wall. Dead silence north of there though :alco:

    You guys are funny! Reminds of the Arabs who dont want the "Arabian Sea" listed on maps anymore.

    E-U-R-O-P-E!!! Learn to spell it and learn to love it, because England belongs to Europe and will for a long time to come.

    I gotta admit, I feel sad for ya though.

    Sound a bit like a Gilbert and Sullivan song from HMS Pinafore..


    He is an Englishman!

    He is an Englishman!
    For he himself has said it,
    And it's greatly to his credit,
    That he is an Englishman!

    That he is an Englishman

    For he might have been a Roosian,
    A French, or Turk, or Proosian,
    Or perhaps Itali-an!

    Or perhaps Itali-an!

    But in spite of all temptations
    To belong to other nations,
    He remains an Englishman!
    He remains an Englishman!

    For in spite of all temptations
    To belong to other nations,
    He remains an Englishman!
    He remains an Englishman!


    I, for one American of English descent, say Hurrah to the English!!!

    The finest ally a country could ever have.

    Be proud of who you are, or rather, where you are from, and don't let anyone tell you that you can't call yourself what you are. Then again, to quote Shakespeare:
    "That which we call a rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet"

    I hope to visit the UK in 2-3 years (sooner if I win the powerball), not France or Germany. Maybe Scotland and/or spain if there's time, but I defintely will be going to Ireland and Britain for sure.
