    You Can Take The Girl Out Of England But You Can't Take England Out Of The Girl.

    I'm so proud to be British, but even prouder to be English.  My family consists of English, Irish and even a bit of Welsh.  I lived in a different country for most of my childhood years and many people are thrilled when they know you're English.  We have a way with words, wit...
