    You’ll never know whether you did or didn’t… haven’t or won’t…

    Brief history… Born Wimbledon, Surrey… Lived and worked in London until I Was 21… moved to new town 45 minutes north of London… 51 I moved to France… British passport… Applying for dual nationality… Retired four years ago… House paid for, just waiting to sell it…

    Decent beer does exist in France but you need to search for it…

    Campaign for Real Ale – CAMRA, lists all the Real Ale pubs in the UK… Around where I lived (from memory, accuracy maybe wanting)… Abbot Ale (Green King), Ruddles (London), ABC Brewery (Aylesbury Brewery Company)…

    I had a crack at the DIY Kits, but the flavour wasn’t really there, but it was fun trying…

    You and I really need to try as many of the Real Ale pubs as possible…

    You’re beginning to sell me on the idea…

    I do understand what you mean, my friend, I tend to avoid them too. The information we’re given is never the good information, so we don’t have the best tools for making an informed opinion.

    Out of curiosity, which do you feel is my country ?

    Wouldn’t you prefer to share a pint of REAL Ale, over here ? Unless you can recommend an American equivalent…

    You see, it’s just this attitude, that you’re the centre of the universe, and no one else exists, that keeps me from ever visiting your country…

    I don’t live in your country. There are other countries on this planet… If individuals with your repulsive, obnoxious and loathsome attitude live there, I never could. What’s even more frightening, is that you think that it’s OK to let the world see you like that. Even your own countrymen are embarrassed by you…

    Some of my best friends are American. At least I can see that not all Americans are like you.

    Shalom – Peace – Namaste…

    No, no, no my friend. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain this to me. I was hoping that someone would, and I’m glad that it was you.

    Funnily enough, I’ve always had the impression that the English self-denigrate themselves, before anyone else does. Interesting how we see a different view of ourselves to the view others have of us. I’ve seen Americans trashing their respective politicians, but not really bad-mouthing themselves, their country, their flag, or their war veterans. But you say that you see that. And yes, you’re right, videos of good-hearted police and private individuals create a completely polarised impression of the horrifying examples we’ve seen on Youtube.

    Thank you again old friend…

    I freely admit to being ignorant of certain foreign cultures… That’s why I come here… to expand my knowledge, and render me less ignorant…

    I only know about this obscure, foreign game, by staying in and Googling it…
