Well? How was the show? Was Marr on top of his game?

WARNING!!! Thread Hijack!


With so many folks from the Island involved in this thread, I was wondering if someone could help me understand something.

There are several different names used when referring to your country; UK, Great Britain and England. Could one(or more) of you folks clarify the different names for me? It's something that has nagged at me for some time and I never had a chance to ask a native. smile

Thanks.

Not a native, but this link might be helpful:  http://www.infoplease.com/uk/language/d … isles.html

I would generally use United Kingdom, although I'm sure that my Scottish, Irish, and Welsh ancestors would prefer me to be more specific.

Re: Band Formation

Thank you Doug_Smith for your link to infoplease.com. Someone on another forum asked me, what's the difference between the UK & GB. (The person asking the question is in the US of A). It was only because I'd read your link I knew the answer. I only lived here 62 years so still regarded as a newbie.

Look for some early John Denver with him playing and singing as part of The Chad Mitchell Trio (a la The Kingston Trio).

You'll hear that distinctive voice right away. wink
