I think it was George Benard Shaw (sp?).
I lived in Rochester, Kent - about 25 miles east of London - for a year.
Throughout my entire stay, I was always encountering situations that proved this
out! In all cases, my hosts were most gracious and after having a little laugh
at my expense, took the time to explain the subtle differences between our
languages. In most cases, the etymology made sense and the words/phrases have
become part of my vocabulary!

A wise man once said that the British and Americans are two great countries
divided by a common language.......I THINK it was Mark Twain.....but PLEASE
don't flame me too badly if it wasn't and it was someone like Winston
