Joe Richman Folklore: St Georges day (136* d) RE: Folklore: St Georges day 01 Apr 06


As a Greek Christian from Asia Minor, he'd probably be eligible for refugee status.

I'm a mutt American with some English ancestry. I'm extremely grateful for the English language, the Swahili of Europe. I particularly like my Mother's upriver Down-East accent. (She was born in The County.) I have an east of the LA river accent, myself, and have a hard time imitating her accent. My poor Dad had a slight New York Irish accent (due to high school teachers in Brooklyn who taught him English). My younger brother has acquired a Western Oregon (way south of Portland) accent from being educated there since 9th grade. My daughter is strictly Orange County (I guess you could call it a Mickey Mouse accent).   

Now about flying the flag on St. George's day: We don't own an English flag, but we do have a very nice New Brunswick flag. Will that do? Or must I fork over the $1.85?

Joe
