I'm not really from England, but my ancestors were. I went to England for the first time when I was sixteen, with members of my Honors Club here in Upstate New York. We washed cars and held bake sales to help raise the money for the trip, which at that time was not too expensive...
Approximately twenty miles south of the great city that is Sheffield lay the small town of Crapton. Yes you heard right, Crapton. Exactly how this town came about its dubious name is another story that I will tell you of another time. It has a population of approximately 2000 and...

Despite being a married man with oodles of kids and a full time job in a people facing profession the loneliness is palpable..
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...
