    A British icon left us recently.

    David Bowie changed attitudes in a time where racism, bigotry, sexism and discrimination were common place attitudes. I can't pretend to be a great fan of his music but as an artist he was one of the greats. What a fabulous contribution he made to the social fabric of our...

    Saw this on another Social Media this morning

    and it made me smile. When British people say one thing, they often really mean the exact opposite! Any Brit will recognize themselves in this list. 1. 'I might join you later' — Translation: I'm not leaving the house today unless it's on fire. 2. 'Excuse me, sorry, is...

    Sir Philip Dilley the Environment Agency

    chairman has decided to "stand down", after holidaying in Barbados during the floods in December. I think this was the right thing to do in the circumstances and he should be given some credit for his resignation. But he was a little naive for a man with so much experience...

    I am British and proud to be so.

    There is so much I love about this country: our tolerance; our sense of humour; our big hearts when it comes to charitable causes; our resolve; our music (Queen, The Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles...); our authors (Dickens, Shakespeare...); our comedy (Ricky...

    When I tell people that I'm from Scotland they

    immediately assume I don't consider myself British but I consider myself just as much British as I do Scottish

    BRITS ARE YOU READY FOR THE GIANT HOUSE SPIDER

    INVASION?????(I'm not)I posted a pic here not long ago, of a fairly generously sized spider in my bath. He was a charming little creature. My heart didn't even skip a beat when I saw it. I studied it for a bit, talked to it, caught it gently in a glass, and put it out. No big...

    To be totally correct: Britain is the

    combination of England and Wales. When you add Scotland to the union it becomes Great Britain. Add Northern Ireland and it becomes the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    I wish I had thought of this: Being British is

    about driving a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer. Then on the way home grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab, to sit on a Swedish Sofa and watch USA shows on a Japanese TV, while being suspicious of anything foreign. Oh and only in Britain can you get a...

    I offer you a televisual contrast: Jamie &

    Jimmy's Friday Night Feast & Jeremy Kyle The best and the worst of British culture. But which of these two programmes represents us most accurately?

    I know that we've moved on from the

    politically incorrect days of the 1970's and 80's but there are a few things that I have to admit that I miss a little. Some of the humour of that time couldn't be performed today but it does make me laugh sometimes. Here's a couple from Les Dawson: I said to the chemist...

    We've had such a great summer

    so far and this week we should hit a heatwave of 40degrees. Scorcher for us.. I love the sun-I don't sunbathe but I feel better about a lot of stuff. The main problem I have is with the whinging Brit. Where usually they bemoan the rain and lack of sun, NOW they are whining full...

    I do not talk like this: "Why hello there old

    chap, what ghastly weather we're having!" Or this: "Alright me old geezer, how's it going son?" I do drink tea and I do eat scones but I do not hold my "pinky" up. Most conversations do start with the weather. I do not have bad teeth I am not posh...

    So the government's advisers have recommended

    that the guidelines on the number of units of alcohol consumed by men in a week, should be reduced from 21 to 14. It's hard to argue against such sage advice, given the health and social problems that are associated with the misuse of the drug. However, I do wonder what will...

    Since I've Turned Forty

    Since I’ve turned forty. Lots of things have happened since I’ve turned forty. I have learned to accept that I am physically not perfect and that no one really is. Okay, so things have headed south but my smile hasn’t. No longer do I judge a book by it’s cover and what...
