My English teacher who reminds us constantly she's from Wales and is not 'English' - was in a very cheerful mood. Makes a nice change :rolleyes:

There are Wetherspoons in Wales, but I haven't been past one today. People wear daffs, kids take leeks into school and a large proportion of Welsh people get very drunk on St David's day. Why isn't St George's like that in England? :rolleyes:

Because, unfortunately for the english, their patron saint was from Palestine.
Never even visited england.

Never mind eh? At least you'll probably beat wales in the rugby (if last weekend's performance against ireland is anything to go by...grumble brumble...whinge...moan... :mad:)

The google icon is cute. Remember on the 17th that St Patrick was born in Wales!
