    I have just joined the site a few hours ago so thought I should say hello. :tup

    I'm assuming this is a US based site so I will excuse some of the strange Americanisms you guys use! :D

    Hopefully there will be plenty of fellow Brits here! :cool

    Welcome to SF. We're glad at least some Europeans will still talk to us. And yes, this site is on a server in Seattle Washington, in the most northwestern of the contiguous states.

    Thank you for the welcome messages. :)

    I always keep my meat nice and fresh! ;)

    Good stuff mate, a fellow Brit. :bow

    Remember the language we both use in English. Therefore what we English guys use regarding spelling is what counts. We invented the lanuage! :D

    I consider myself English rather than European! I think I'm starting to sound like I have a chip on my shoulder. :eek: I think the Americanism I hate most is you guys referring to football as soccer! :yell I'm sure my fellow footy supporting Brits will agree.:cool

    Naa, we call football football, I have no idea why, since we mostly move the ball in other ways, but we call futbol soccer.:lol
    Sorry about the European thing.

    Oh goodie, I love it when Brits talk about how much they hate the "Americanism" soccer. Then I get to explain to them that they (and not the Americans) are the ones who invented it. It is therefore entirely their fault.

    Here is an excerpt from the Soccer Fans Info website:
