Can't believe that the 'Red Duster' has fallen from grace! Pleased that you are there to show the flag!

Re: How many Brits are using this Forum?

The Americans are quite easy to spot on CF - they usually assume:

A) that everyone on CF is American.
B) that everyone on CF lives in the USA.
C) that the rest of the world is full of furriners.

But we all seem to muddle along (apart from a few hot topics!)....in practice will find that plenty of folks on CF have been here, there and everywhere - even if not currently in the spot needed.......albeit what CF is good at is helping folks get into the ballpark to find own answers rather than being able to spoonfeed answers on everything. For some that is a frustration..........

Re: How many Brits are using this Forum?

A fair summary with a good outlook!

Being a Brit has never stopped me from crossing the pond to enjoy our Cousins hospitality... First sailed in the Caribbean back in '82 on Supertankers!!

Brit here, in an old Brit boat making a bloody slow trip down the ICW to eventually the Turks and Caicos.
Love Americans, hate their politics, their weird religions and their desperation about guns.
As a Brit, you will be regularly insulted when they assume you are Australian or you live in London.

Re: How many Brits are using this Forum?

Bloody Northerner here for the first 24 years of my life. Then I escaped to the sun in Australia. I may die of skin cancer rather than hypothermia, but I think that I won.

Not NEARLY as insulted as I feel when a Brit refers to me as a "Yank". It's kind of like calling a Scot an Englishman because they're both Brits, at the moment.

My ancestors fought the Brits AND the Yanks. One of my ancestors commanded the USA's FIRST warship in the 1770's, and several others fought in gray during the War of Northern Aggression.

Give us a shout when you come through the TCI. We don't hold old grudges.

Just new ones.

I love Brits, my income is completely derived from teaching them how to drive automatic transmission automobiles. And my wife is Canadian, eh?
