Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I'll tell you right now, if they don't feature Tartan Day on April 6th they'll be hearing from me :)
For those who don't know about Tartan Day have a look at [tartanday.gov.uk...] (I think it's OK to post this?) CIML - use your influence here. You are Jockanese are you not?
I will also be looking for recognition of St Andrew's Day on November 30th. Google you have been warned :)
..having lit the "blue touch paper" ..retires to commune with a bottle of Bushmills..;-)
after all virtually the entire western world has inherited english culture and values
And I thought it was the Romans. Weren't they the ones who colonised England for about 500 years or something?
N.B. They didn't make it in Scotland. We threw them out and got on with doing it ourselves but then we were already quite civilised.
well some would say that the british fused the two like no other europeans managed too - even if only in terms of language.
no-one can argue that english is the dominant language in the west - although i hear that spanish is making big claims for that title too.
BeeDeeDubbleU my laptop started making a strange screeching noise when I visited that tarten day link
That tune is known as "Highland Cathedral" and would you believe that it was written by German guy? Whodathunkit!
Regarding the holiday logos it looks like Google rmembered everybody (even St David!) last year apart from St Andrew. No wonder we Scots get upset. Did you know that we are the most well balanced race? (We have chips on both shoulders.)
Regarding Bushmills, it tastes like yacht varnish in comparison to a good Scotch whisky :)
"Whisky" is the correct spelling BTW - we invented it - it comes from the Scottish Gaelic "Uisge Beatha", which is pronounced ooshki bah.

What are the world's most widely spoken languages?
How on earth does French rank so highly! More Brussels fiddling no doubt...</duck>
plus they have to count folks like me who think in French just as easy as in English .
All of the above have significant French speaking populations.
That's a lot of Frenchies!
