Reciprocated. It's a shame our patron Saint does not celebrate his day when roses are growing in our gardens!

Shame that those most against celebrating being English are the pc little villager middle classes that are one of the best examples of what is English.

Bless 'em.

I get the feeling they think that we're still labelled as slave selling, merciless, conquering savages if we hold up a white flag with a red cross on it. I'm too proud of my heritage to listen to them.
What does annoy me is that I'm not allowed to have a flag in my own garden. Go to the USA and evry house has a US flag and quite right, too. Smile

Its was. he's dead.

He was soldier who refused to participate in the persecution of a religious minority, criticized the policy, and was therefore executed.
Seems to have been a greek speaking roman soldier in turkey with a mother from israel. Talk about celebrating diversity.
Also the patron saint of lots of other countries.

Not a bad choice really.
