Then came the Saxons, and the Vikings, finally in 1066 the French so what the hell is an Englishman?

I was born in Thundersley, Castle Point and lived there until I was 16 when we moved to London.

We stole hankies. Got sent on a cruise to paradise. Worked for a bit and got given a plot of land as "punishment"... Not a bad deal considering they were going no where before

Where in Essex 42RM? Both of my kids were born in St Johns Chelmsford. We use to live in East Tilbury, then moved to South Woodham Ferrers.

When I came back from Singapore I did have a very dark sun tan as well as (or did) dark almost black hair and dark brown eyes. I walked into a pub not far from home and i immediately became the center of attention as follows:-

Drinker. "Bloody immigrants coming in our pubs!"

I take off my wrist watch to show the skin underneath

Drinker "You been on holiday mate, that's one hell of a sun tan?"

Me "You could say that, two and half years in the Far East."

Drinker "Two and a half years holiday. You rich or summat???"

Me "I'm in the RAF I just did a tour there."

Drinker "Your in the RAF? What you doing in the RAF?"

Me "Getting drunk as often as I can when I can at her majesties pleasure and annoying everyone I come across in far off lands."

Drinker "Blimey have a pint on me mate."

Strangely enough I staggered out of the pub and it didn't cost me a penny (we had pennies in those days.)

Like I said once before, Mr Brit- Tell 'em Ace!

Always remember: No Italian is afraid to laugh at his own limitations and defects...
(For example, I find the sequence Rossi - Biaggi ... Schettino very good!! )

LOL.... in Miami Jesus is about as common as Juan, Jose, Carlos, and Jorge. So to me it's nothing new or fancy. But then again in Spanish Jesus isn't pronounced as Jez-Us... it's He-Suss. Yeah... trying to describe accents through text on the internet is hard.
