I was born in Northumberland-we have our own Kingdom-it was only when James the sixth of Scotland was greedy and moved to England to become James the first of pommie land that the world in general and Scots in particular forgot that the land they and english referred to as the debateable land was in fact its own independent kingdom. See the culture clash begins-the scots resent being called English which they clearly are not and even British is a bit much for those who seek independence-the minorities like Geordies are often ignored and their claims to be an indepenedent nation laughed at.I will return to my wife who while she does not understand me is much better looking than me and the rest of the Geordies I have met.The scots however can be quite fetching if they clean themselves up.
Whiskey - hmmmm, that must be the Irish version, in scotland we call it whisky and no I dont drink the stuff since my last liver transplant. Geordie lad, we scots are not averse to having a bath once a year or so, more than that would be wasting good water which we keep for important things like our whisky.
nice to know you have a bath on such a regular basis-I bet you have one even if you need it or not.Now who did invent whisk(e)y.My Scottish Grandad has one story and my Irish Grandmother another-I do believe however that it was a celt
