... Happy St George's Day.
And also to my English readers.
The marking of St George's day in England seems to be a fairly recent phenomenon, and the adoption of the St George's cross by extremists and hooligans has left a lot of English people (or at least those I know) slightly uneasy about the use of our national flag - something I don't observe among Scots, Welsh or (most) Irish people.
To be honest I have zero interest in marking this day but as I mentioned both St David's and St Patrick's last month I thought I probably ought to continue the practice. Note to self - don't (dare!) forget St Andrew on 30 November.
I guess I also ought to be wishing Shakespeare a happy birthday...
