"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    If only 10% of Brits have never been anywhere outside of Britain, this means a big majority have travelled abroad. unlike where in the USA over 80% of Americans haven't even got passports.

    I think £800 for a pair of second hand knickers is a bit rich.

    Gold plated panties? You certainly need to be rich to afford them at this price!

    I think the majority of people will have hopped over to France at some point. It's not a very long journey.

    Actually Spain is more popular with the Brits @GemmaRowlands. I think France comes a close second though.
