United Kingdom

Where do we start? United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is the mother of the original culture of the United States of America. Need I say more?

I spent three years living in London and environs, enjoying it fully. I won't even pretend to try to capture the full nature of this amazing country. But I will point out a few things that some folks, especially those still on the lower end of the learning curve, might not find easily. These reflect things I myself didn't know, or have taught to me, until much later in life. Knowing them might not have made much difference in my life, but knowing them now adds to the richness of my life, and hence my happiness...

For example, there are some favorite places, and some interesting facts. For example, why is the U.K. flag so complicated? Hmmm?
