We're off to White Horse Hill to visit Dragon Hill which is where St George is supposed to have killed the dragon (there is a patch on the top where grass never grows which is supposed to be where the dragon's blood fell).

If anyone goes up there I'll be the one with purple(ish) hair and wearing a white rose.

Happy St George's Day

Have a good trip - I seem to recall that it can be pretty windy up there, and decidedly inhospitable in the rain. It's pouring here right now, and my wife's decided to go walking on hampstead heath with a friend. I think I'll stay dry and warm.

Strange isn't it. I said to my partner this morning "It's St Georges day today" She said "So what!"

Every other country respects/celebrates their special day. St Patrick, St Andrew, St David etc.

We, the British say. "Sorry, we're British, we don't do that sort of thing".

Sorry Bodice, I have been out all day and did not see your posting. I just made another on the same theme:

pj123: It not the "British" who are modest about celebrating St. George`s day, only the English!. The other Brits celebrate their days.

Being half English and half Welsh I get two celebration days.
