This winters been all white and cold, but 2010 summer was suprisingly good. Indeed it was far better than we found around the French / Spanish / Portuguese coasts in 2009.

Cheers
JOHN

Och, don't say. It was beautiful and sunny today, if very frigid. Writing to you from freezing Yarmouth Harbour, after a lovely downwind night sail under the stars from Hamble.

I'm a Yank myself, but some of my BEST friends are Brits! WELCOME...
This was last summer, on the beach at St Andrews.

Yet another 'Britisher' here, yes I know ghastly word but it's what the Americans we are surrounded by call us.
Home in the UK is a mix of Southampton and Cornwall but currently in Guatemala, Central America.
Welcome.

So sorry, I should say British...

Actually, we don't go by "Yank" either. Got both terms off of a James Bond Movie. WOULD THEY LIE?

It is not the first time I have put my foot in it... We have friends, (a couple), Ritchie is Scottish, Julia is English. I accidentally refereed to him as English once! YIKES!

I now understand... HE is Scottish, SHE is English, together THEY are British!

And here's a new word, "Britisher". That is a new one on me. I will try to remember however. We are slow, but can learn... No offense intended.

Mark

PS I suppose you are up the Rio Dulce? If so, and you haven't already done it, BY ALL MEANS, take a week tour inland and see Tikal, Antigua, and Lake Atitlan... at least. We cruised on a shoestring, but these are a must see!

Cornish
Scottish
Welsh
and English
In no particular order, apart from the Cornish being first obviously
But we all come under the British banner.
Apologies to the colonies I've missed America, Canada etc but i can't remember them all.










Tongue firmly in cheek

mark johnson your humility is nobel, don't worry our closes't cousins call us pommies,normaly prefaced by "whinging" and you lot "seppos",i'll let the aussie brethren explain that one.....

pommie is the familiar term for "prisoner of mother england",something the americas,another of our colonies never had to endure to as large an extent as some of the newer colonies.

tough image to live up to when you consider 2/3rds of the world was coloured red untill 1800 or so,......................
