    Given that Bonfire Night is a very English celebration, I'm always surprised that it's celebrated in other parts of the world. I'd be proud, but somehow I suspect that a lot of people don't really know what Bonfire Night is all about..........

    We were thinking of having a good old Bonfire Night knees up with all the typical quality English fayre, y know, bonfire toffee that chips your teeth, good old sloppy, farty mushy peas, baked tata's chucked in fire. Everyone's invited except KH and Taffy coz they're full of horridness today and they've hurt my vair vair fragile feelings.

    An eye for an eye, that's the spirit Dawn. I don't think people from Americee and Wales wouldn't appreciate your cultural heritage anyway.

    Ahem.... actually, I know all I need to know about England - more specifically, Nottingham (where our Dawn hails from).... Sherwood Forest & Robin Hood Not to mention, ermm..... the..... ummm....... heaps of other cultural things England are renowned for.....

    Oh that's right, drinking beer, going to Spain, drinking more beer and fighting (all in the name of soccer, obviously), then more drinking....

    Of course, the English never had a hope of competing with mining and Tom Jones that the Welsh brought to the table in term of culture

    Americees and Welshees are heathens.......

    But Koko, if we were all to adhere to this Old Testament teaching the world would be full of blind people right? Me's just thinking out loud.....
