Pets Paradise. Kings Street. Not that bigger difference.

Re: Greetings, one and all.

Me. Now heres a question. does any one know where me and Zach live. you get two guesses each. You have the above clues. One more: It's an Island betweeb the Uk and France but not part of the european union. The queen is our matriach, but to us she is the Duchess of Normandy. Not the queen.

Re: Greetings, one and all.

I just thought that you might have been from Newcatle because you said the word cannae, and people who live in Newcastle say that instead of cannot.

Re: Greetings, one and all.

You just have to find the Island. Not the address. That would be too hard. And impossible

No. not really, jam-pot. you have not found the island. We might as well tell them. they're not going to guess it.

Re: Greetings, one and all.

So, that's where we live. In a little Island measuring 116 square km. With just under 100,000 people. Expensive. And we get the best potatoes, milk and immigrants looking for work in thw world

Re: Greetings, one and all.

And you are basically just off the French coast.

Is there much french spoken there - I notice lots of french placenames.

Re: Greetings, one and all.

No. There is a language called Jersey French. this was from the norman conquerers. They bought in French from France. Jersey people adapted it. Then, when we pledged allegiance to the Crown (England) we started speaking English. Not many people speak Jersey French now. All the French names are actually Jersey French.

Re: Greetings, one and all.

Just amazing ... so there are only 100,000 Jersey-ites (Jersians?), and not all of those would speak Jersey French. Must make it a rare language. Can you speak some of it?

You could go to France, speaking English. If they look down on you, you could speak to them in Jersey French, pointing out that YOU speak a truer French than their modern rubbish. big_smile
