    Uh, What exactly is happening in your avatar? I have several theories....none of which are suitable for a G rated forum.

    I've also heard that story of Mme De Gaulle. I laugh every time.

    And it's not that French letters are uniquely English, but outdated in the US. It's a term that was used back during WWI, I believe. But don't let a Brit put on his rain boots with an American date, cause your rubbers are our French letters.
    It's an outdated term here too, but I don't think there are many recent jokes about de Gaulle It's probably a term that the GIs introduced to Britain when they came over.

    Are there any estimates on how many Americans know that the Swiss don't come from Sweden, and that Switzerland and Sweden are actually two different countries?

    On the other hand, I have to admit that probably most Swiss would say that the State of Washington is situated at the East Coast.

    There was a girl on our Big Brother TV show (I'm assuming you're familiar with the format), a series or two ago, who was so thick it was funny. She was English btw so I'm not having a go at anyone but us here. She wasn't really aware of the existence of any of the UK outside of London, except Scotland. She thought the only river in England was the Thames (it's not even the only river in London) and she thought East Anglia (where Cambridge is) was somewhere near Turkey!
    She also didn't know the difference between horizontal and hexagonal. And now she's a star because she's been on tv, who said society was dumbing down?

    I was lying by a pool in Florida one time chatting up a girl (as the brits say I think) and she asked where I was from...actually she said, "Where ya'all from?" I said, "New Hampshire". She said, "Oh,....Neat....., what state is that in?"

    (and I don't check the site for a few weeks and everyone looks different .... almost as bad as deleting posts!)

    Captain told me no cells on his boat. Who am I to argue? If I disobey, he might not tie me to the yardarm.

    Decent sized boat?

    Why would *I* tie someone else to anything? You missed the point entirely, dear one. :eyeroll:

    I was meant to be doing a delivery trip in a few weeks helping take a boat back from spain to UK (or at least france) but it looks like its falling through. I miss the sound of waves, stars at night, dolphins etc.

    Hope your next avatar shows you on the boat!

    Bad luck, that! I know how you feel missing the water though. I don't think I could ever live anywhere that's landlocked again.

    I'll try to get some photos when we're out!

    And here's 1,001. <takes a bow> I can't believe it. But I think Mol has forsaken us for mytreo.net. I hope he's happy over there.

    Indeed I am happy over there Though I think it would be only fair to add my mtdn post count to my TC post count, which means I'm beating the sh*t out of Alli's post count.

    Pffffffft. You probably copy/pasted all your old TC posts from here to there just to make it look like you were posting a lot over there. I'll bet you even found all the missing posts from when TC went down and used those. Harumph!

    But it's nice to see you haven't totally forsaken us.

    Be careful, you are tempting Ms. Alli to impose spelling penalties on you. Remember she has not left yet.
