Final comment on it all. Your factually incorrect post is there on another thread, copied and pasted, for all to see. As you have been shown to be factually incorrect (in both your posts here and your reviews), a plagiariser, and a huge loser in everything, I can only leave you with this thought:

It's very satisfying knowing that myself, and all the other real posters on here, are so far above you, it brings a tear to my eye.

George-

That's a bit presumptuous of you to think that the 9 trackers are here because of you. They were following BEFORE you arrived!
You followed them here. Perhaps a bit of an air of omnipotence of your own?

George,

I think you've gotten off on the wrong foot in this particular group. I for one am willing to let bygones be bygones and treat you with an amount of respect equal to what you show me. Perhaps others here would be so inclined as well? How your comments or anyone's comments are received has alot to do with how the other person feels about your past interactions with them.
I think the angry, name calling, argumentative routine quickly loses it's luster, even for those who've bothered engaging you previously in this thread.
Peace George.

Dear Minnie, I mean Anne,

Well, I am delighted to have complimented you, albeit unwittingly. GH was definitely one of the better best-seller writers, so your enthusiasm for her is nothing to be ashamed of.

New England was a guess, pure and simple.

Glad you are enjoying your sojourn in our neck of the woods. I am sorry to say that I don't always see eye to eye with the Damaskcat, or Quiverbow for that matter, but the reasons are historical and a bit silly. I am sure they are fine.

Dear Mr. Forbes,
I'm so sorry you don't get along with those I mentioned. I meant no harm, truly. Just most have been very kind to me over here. And it's a surprise to have someone pick up the New England from spelling. I'm from a port town named from the true England. But, I came to it by way of Montana, which after all this time is still in my voice, so speaking wise, most never figure out where I am from.

I'd love to know what gave me away, not that it's a secret. But, was wondering if you were a professsor or linquistic specialist? Anyway, must go as for me it's night nights and my kitties are asking for treats. They keep me on schedule. Blessings.

Sorry had to come back. Just saw the second review that matches mine.. Wonder what sock account name he gave up for that one. That one has the movie North by Northwest which has George Kaplan in it.

Well, as I said, my guess was just a guess, but I think I selected New England because your writing style suggested East Coast rather than West, and your manners (whilst impeccable) suggested North rather than South. All of which excludes the centre, but that's because nobody lives there (relatively speaking). :-)

Montana of course is where My Friend Flicka was based, and anybody who had a horse-mad mother or sister will know it for that reason if no other. I don't know if the book is still in print, but it was hugely popular over here in its day.

ETA: Saying you are from a port town named after a place in England doesn't tell us a lot, but I will have a wild stab at Gloucester.

Dear J. Forbes,
Gloucester is very close, spent much time there, but it's Massachusettes and I'm NH. I would gladly offer the name but someone is nosing into my business, so I'm a bit shy.

I always preferred Misty of Chincoteague to Flicka which was very popular here too. Of course I was horse mad, after dad retired we moved to a run down farm and built it back up. Although there were stalls, there were never horses, except in my childhood imagination.

It's strange to be talking to someone who lives where I have been reading. Have you ever been to Bath? I always wanted to go to London very much. I've found most people I've met here to have extremely nice manners. A rarity these days. Thank you for the talk. And I hope you have a nice weekend.

Mis Mouse, you must stop reading and start flying. There is a lot to see here that you would love.

Putting my Sherlock hat on again, I would guess that Bath appeals because, being a Regency town, it appears in the novels of a certain Miss GH. It's lovely, and if you do fly over, be sure to visit Bradford on Avon too, which is close by.

As a Scot, I have to say that no British city surpasses Edinburgh, and its annual festival is unmissable. The New Town possesses some of our best Georgian architecture - better than Bath, but the grey stone can't match Bath's gold.

Right now I am moored close to the "City Barge" on the Thames in Chiswick. The pub is so named because the Lord Mayor of London used to keep his barge here, in the days when there was no better way to travel. For an idea of what it looked like, google the Queen's rowing barge, Gloriana.

Good night.

Dear J. Forbes,
You are so right about wanting to see Bath after reading about it. And I so wish I could fly. But, I would seek my Irish then Scot roots first. It's quite hard to tell that I carry royal Cherokee Indian blood in me as I am a pale long haired red head..LOL Definately take after dad's side.

Everyone says I was born in the wrong era, I so wish I could have seen Bath in the heyday. The description just sounds wonderful. I have tried the water from the Fountain of Youth. Don't recommend it...LOL

Just even saying moored makes me jealous. Due to age, dad had to give up the boat. I have some of the best memories of being on the water, drowning worms and hanging out with friends. Or jumping a sailboat for the weekend. Of course we never had anything like the Gloriana!

Wish I could be such a Sherlock as you, but the best I can tell is you are nice and like others don't mind me being from here. Due to my mixed up family I'm a cross between a Yankee and a Rebel, so hard to say which. Have a great night. Thanks.
