    I'd like to wish all regulars here, especially English posters, a Happy St George's Day.

    St George is the patron Saint of England and his day, April 23rd (which is also Shakespeare's birthday) is a day when good English people should celebrate - as the Welsh do on St David's Day and the Irish on St Patrick's Day.

    I remember when it was more generally celebrated, before it became rather non 'PC'. Thankfully that seems to be changing again.

    Funny how that perception doesn't seem to apply to St. David's and especially St. Patricks day.
