    Very Fond of B

    My love of Britain has come along gradually. I just think it's such an amazing country with such amazing people. I hadn't been there until last summer, when I visited London for 5 days. It was everything I had ever dreamt of. I wouldn't have believed that you could walk around...

    For As Long As I Can Remember...

    For as long as I can remember, I have always had a love for all things British. I have no clue what made me at the age of 10 start my love, but somehow it blossomed.

    Home of the Great William Shakespeare!

    Ah, wish I could be British. Don't get me wrong, love my country--just don't like it very well, of late. Folks here are getting more and more regressive and mentally lazy with every passing year. Basic manners have become passe. You know, most Americans, don't even know how...

    Anglophile Here

    I have an affinity for British culture. At the same time I know it probably wouldn't interest me so much if I was an insider. I studied British history in college and I greatly prefer British literature. Being American is fine by me (I mean it's definitely who I am) as long as...
