    I was born in England in 1980.

    I came to the United States in the summer of 2001. I had only been in the USA for a few weeks before 911 happened in New York City, Washington D.C., at the Pentagon, and in an empty field in Pennsylvania. Everyone in America were in shock, turmoil, unbelief, and so were so...

    What The English Say...

    A few well known everyday phrases in our delightful language. As you'll see... What we say, what we mean and what others understand... Are amusingly different. WHAT THE ENGLISH SAY. "I hear what you say" WHAT THEY MEAN "I disagree and do not want to discuss it further" WHAT...

    The down side of being English on EP is

    that it seems all the fun people from the other side of the world are asleep when I'm on here and awake when I'm not.... Or was it just something I said :)

    England Is Beautiful

    I feel very lucky to live where I do. The people are mostly friendly, apart from my neighbours, which is a shame. But it's lovely and quiet, and not too far from places that have things to do there. But everywhere I've been in England has something good about it. So, I do feel...

    Who here used to read the Dandy

    or the Beano comics? They're as British as fish 'n' chips and the Queen. I used to read the Dandy and even now I can't help but pick up a copy of the Beano every now and then. Do many kids read the Beano these days, or is it out of fashion now?
