So I will be celebrating tonight for various reasons - 1. toasting my brother, 2. blue skies here and slightly warmer, 3. finally getting a new laptop - only about 2 years too late, this thing dies a little more every day, 4. as Steve_P said enjoying being alive and having a good time, and 5 - why not celebrate St George's day and celebrate being English, I personally think more should be done for the day back in UK. After all, the Irish, Welsh and Scots manage to celebrate their days without it upsetting others or coming across as hating other races.
In England every day is St Georges Day

How do they count the 20 or so views? Cookies? If so, if you disable cookies for that site do you still get access?

I disabled cookies as an experiment on the Globe & Mail here in Canada when it said I should now pay for a subscription. I can still access all of their articles.

I love St. George's Day, we used to have nice cakes, but the EDL being deluded and racist wankers, have co-opt·ed and ruined the celebration.
