BBC Scotland is produced by foreigners Doc

And Double 0, you can pronounce it any way you want but it’s still wrong

Now what I want, given this is the title and nature of this thread, is that all you bloody wind-up merchants ‘gie ma heid peace’

I think I might be a foreigner wherever I am, Earth being only a temporary home. Or as the term was when I was little, I was from "out of state." I sometimes had a great deal of difficulty understanding people when they spoke in London, so apparently English is not exactly my native tongue. Therefore I must be a foreigner. But I've had that trouble in other places, too. I sometimes had to ask my mother-in-law to repeat herself because I couldn't understand her and she was from Lynchburg, Virginia.
 
By the way, the ancestor of mine bearing my family name who came to the Colony of Virginia sometime in the 1620s as far as I have learned, was born in Bromley, Kent. One of his sons was born in Virginia in 1627 but the father returned to England and died in Canterbury. But his great-great grandfather was German, from Cologne, who went to England, married an English woman and lost all claims to whatever family rights he may have had, including the use of "von." But so far, I haven't discovered that any of my ancestors ever did anything worth noting. But one of my wife's ancestors lived at Sulgrave Manor, near Banbury.
 
Concerning walls, sometimes it's hard to tell if a wall is supposed to keep people in or keep people out. They don't seem to work all that well whichever it's supposed to be.

I think they’re often there to keep people employed in building them BlueTrain.

Sounds like you’re a descendant of the Pilgrim Fathers! You did well tracing your ancestry that far back.

I hadn't thought of walls as a make-work project but more likely if they were, it would be to keep the corporations busy.
 
No way descended from Pilgrims or Puritans. My ancestors came to Virginia and never left the state (except for the first one, who went back). I am the first one not born in Virginia in my line but only ten miles over the state line. Likewise, I am also the first one not born in Carrol or Grayson County, Virginia, since before 1800.
 
I have been to Oklahoma, though.
