Rant Over.

Back to more pleasant things.

August the 1st is also the date of the emancipation of all slaves in the British Empire in 1834. For all BLM looking in, that's 180 years ago.

On a lighter note, it is also the date of when the English, assisted by Germany, once again kicked French arses in the Battle of Minden in 1759.

Re: Yorkshire Day

Happy Yorkshire day to our friends in the North.

For those not from Yorkshire, here's a translator so you can communicate with them.
