Remembering England

Posted Apr 22, 2006 in England, Events, Family, Personal.

Usually, it passes with barely a mention. I'm just as guilty of ignoring it as anyone else. This time, I'm going to make a special effort. Starting today, and continuing for a week, the si-blog logo will proudly wear the St George's Cross to commemorate St George's Day. At home, I'll be flying the St George's Cross from my front porch (which normally wears the Flag of the United States).

I'm not a man of religion, so Saint George doesn't mean very much to me (except what I know about him from his mostly dubious history); however, the flag is the national flag of England, and it is England and all things English that I wish to celebrate. Ironically, St George probably never set foot in England.

The si-blog will feature one or two English-themed entries during the next few days, so be sure to check back.

    Got some nice knowledge out of the post, actually.

    I saw a programme recently that actually questioned whether he was actually a real person at all. To me this sits rather nicely as I have some issues with the 'slaying of the dragon story' too.

    And with good reason. A draw against Arsenal has tipped the odds in favor of Tottenham, in the race to get into the Champions League.
