Onno, Thanks for the feedback. I will follow up to find out how the pictures were included. Normally we only use pictures that are either provided by the author or from our photo library.First of all, my apologies for not coming good on my promise to contribute, William, life's been hectic. But I'll make good for next issue, if you want me to.
What I have seen so far of issue 9, looked really good. I haven't had time to actually read the articles yet but I really liked the diversity in topics.
One thing that is missing, perhaps, is something on the FL community - particularly an event. We haven't had many of those yet, I suppose and I guess that was also related to my contribution... But it will be nice to see FLQ developing in that direction - after all, it is FerrarLIFE.
One final, tiny, thing - it's not a problem for me, but two of my photos were used for Vitalone's article. It was a bit of a surprise - maybe a little heads-up next time? Don't worry about it but I just wanted you to know.
Tony,Hi William (and everyone else)...
Agree, surely it is just English, or maybe modern English?what is "British English", by the way? There is no such thing
That's a very interesting link Archie, I've been toying with it for about half an hour now!Agree, surely it is just English, or maybe modern English?
If this link works it will take you to a BBC History webpage and will show some 8th century Anglo Saxon English text
Onno, as the Angles and Saxons came from what is now modern day Germany, Freisland ? and Holland it is no wonder our languages share many similarities. Apparently, the local slang spoken in Norfolk and Suffolk can be understood by people in certain parts of Holland, even if they don't speak English.Hey Archie, that was a great link!
It's good to know that my English mates after the pub crawl were really going back to their roots and talking Anglo Saxon...
Seriously, the audio clips were fascinating.
