>Carlos, amid a very entertaining thread: >> 1723 (1657) London and York are bombed from Hangkerim ships. > >They sailed up the Thames to bomb London, I guess, but how did they >bomb York? Is it possible to sail to York? (I don't have a map handy, >& I don't know where the river in York runs to.) Sure you can sail up to york. But you can't sail up to it in anything sturdy enough to survive a sea voyage. York is riverboats only, and Im not too sure even of that. --- Rhialto A country can be judged by the quality of its proverbs.
