Didn't know that!
« on: March 18, 2013, 02:30:00 PM »

I've often wondered this:

.... "out of the mouth of babes!"

The difference between the United Kingdom (UK) England, Great Britain (GB) and the British Isles

 Interesting web site. A few years ago I mentioned, on here, I was coming over to England for a few weeks. I was royally chastised for not saying I was coming to Great Britain with some comparison to America ( I currently live in Canada). I was in fact coming to England, the place of my birth where my family still lives, and not the rest of Great Britain, UK or whatever. Perhaps not everyone should assume the other doesn't know what they are talking about when they refer to one segment of GB.
