I like this country because I can
Help out at the rugby club (summer and winter)and still get to the coast for a spot of Kayaking/boadyboarding/fishing after the game.(summer)
Get for a beer with some great friends and family in some great pubs/bars .
Take the dog for a walk in open countryside only 2minutes from my front door.
The BANDROOM at Farndale superb live music venue.
Spurn point in winter

I think the country is far too expensive now as went to watch a Rugby team called Tynedale in the national lower leagues and it was £10 entry, £3 a pint and £4 a ###### pork sarnie and there was only around 200 odd fans there.

The days where you could join a Rugby/Cricket club as a non paying member so you could take advantage of the cheap beer is long gone.

 

p.s. i also liked record shop's.

Went to the Sheesh Mahal for their brilliant chicken masala last night and then to the Fighting Cocks for a pint of Landlord. Does life get any better? I went to New York last month and TBF the beer was surprisingly good, but there was no rugby, and NFL on every channel on the TV. This country for all its flaws takes some beating.

Assynt is beautiful.

Stopped at the Inchnadamph Hotel on my first University geology field trip - the area is very important in the history of geology.


Yes it's very Gniess

We can't leave out good old British fish & chips. Seniors award-winning cafe in Thornton, near Cleveleys, dish out an amazing choice to the highest standards.

It's Remembrance Sunday the week after next. Please make every effort to go to the parade in your town. You will never again be in any doubt that this is the greatest country in the world.

 

If you are anywhere near Bradford, come to ours.

Warning, you will shed a tear.

Wake up and smell the roses mate, yes there are a few niggles that you can dwell on but this is one of the most beautiful and accessible countries in the world.

I don't like parades
I commemorate Remembrance Day in my own way on the sunday and on the eleventh
That I can do that and not have to attend a parade if I don't wish is one of the positives of living here

The scenery

The people(mostly)

Our sense of humour

The food

The beer

I posted this on the random link thread but it's worth a read to see how the US viewed us in WW2. Some things have changed a lot, others haven't.

I'm certainly pleased I'm not thought of as a panty-waist. Sounds horrible.

Running alongside this was a training film featuring burgess Meredith . Meredith says everything in the text but adds that the uk population might not take kindly to the way black soldiers were treated and segregated from their comrades

The climate.

Music. and how musical traditions have been kept alive as a developing artform rather remaining static.

Regional food and how other cuisines have been seamlessly incorporated into the food landscape

Transformation into a true multicultural society instigated by the general public rather dictated by government policies and and laws.

Long tradition of never taking to political extremes.

Great variety of landscapes that is probably not matched anywhere given it's size.

Repect for privacy and civil liberties (despite successive governments trying to erode these)

Journalists

BBC

Regional accents

Music and food festivals
