Having survived all that, Stan, you owe yourself some time in the UK.

We've been discovering it, a little at a time, over the past few years and are just now starting to 'get it'. Its charms are subtle ones, but endearing.

Taking ten or twelve centuries to sort things out has let them get their priorities right. They've learned what to save and preserve. I was able to see the very map the generals used to plot the movement of convoys across the Atlantic in the war. The pinholes that marked the ships are still there. It's in the very same room, just like the chair Churchill sat in and ground his fingernails into. They didn't tear it down. Or build condos over it. Their heritage means something to them.

What kind of country would allow a firm like the Morgan Motor Company to survive and prosper? Would still buy its products? Would make sure regulations won't snuff it out?

Their citizens are proud of the place. One of them got it right when he described it as a precious stone set in the silver sea.

There might not always be an England, so while there is, and as long as you're healthy, you should check it out.
