Indeed I do Kenny was one of my all time favourits. Watched the video the other day about him and Freddy Mercury. Never realised they shared the same partner who gave them both aids. Such a waste of two brilliant performers

Was thinking about your screen name the other day and wondered if you were a gynecologist :P

Have a compound bow and arrows in the bedroom, and indeed have made arrows, even as a child was fascinated by making arrows and bows, never knew what a Fletcher was either in those days, also Sagitarius

When I was younger & fitter, I used to demonstrate Native American bareback horse-riding & archery. At full gallop I could sometimes hit a barn door!  :D

After I posted my above reply, I looked the bottom of the page where it lists "Other things on a similar subject". All of them were concerned with fish. The only reference to fish was my putting (Pisces) at the bottom of my reply. Did it really pick up on that?  Why not archery, beavers or horses?  ???

It's an MI5 plot to get fish mentioned in the motto. :-X

I'm intrigued that people go so upset when the government overturned the ban on fresh air in pubs. This peculiar ban was policed by an un elected minority at the risk of their own health and that of others.
Still, back to the slogan.
How about  "Britain; there's about 1 1/4 born every minute"
or "The country previously known as Great Britain"
BTW, is an orderly que a well organised question in Spanish?

How about,

"I'll be there for Britain, even if Britain isn't there for me!"

I though we already had one, or two even long before the USA.

They are on the Royal Coat of Arms but we still use the French.

Dieu et mon droit = God and my right.

Honi soit qui mal y pense = Evil be to him who evil thinks.


In keeping with French I prefer "nation de frère"  ;D

Yup, someone told me a story of about how a guy from the US tried to get a job in Britain, but he continually lost the job to lesser qualified persons. So, he changed his name to sound more European, and he got the job.

Does Britain hate US?
