Okay, Loony, now for the kicker, and the reason I was so detailed regarding these things is my world history teacher didn't like England, so never taught usabout England (Just how much of a role did England play in the US history?). So, I never knew that the UK was actually an island until I was 21 - and this I learned from a romance novel. That's right . . All of my history on the UK, France, & German royalty, etc, was learned from romance novels. Erm, (clears throat) HISTORICAL romance novels. LOLOOOL. Okay, so from now on, try to give a bit more explination regarding where your country is located, as, honestly, many may have absolutely no clue.
