Where Am I

I joined a couple of weeks ago and I have noticed something very curious. Most of the people around here use language that I do not fully understand, I think that some of the folks here might be foreigners! What are all of you doing here in Rural North Florida?

Re: Where Am I

You're in a place Savvy where there are people from the the Anglophone countries of UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand - mostly. Maybe we should call it the "5 Eyes Club" I've seen one person from The Netherlands and one from France but those 5 countries - majority from UK - make up most of the members - I think. But idioms, slang and other variations in English of course happen. If there's anything you can't understand there's plenty of people here that can translate.BUt I warn you ..You will be flat out like a lizard drinking making out some of the stuff you'll read here. YOu with me cobber?

Most of us do speak using English language, Savvy. Which words or phrases are you unfamiliar with?

Don't worry Savvy, you probably stumbled into the Brexit Thread.
