Educational 5 Min. Video: Difference between the United Kingdom, Great Britain and England

Here's a lot of history and geography in one 5 minute video. If you thought you knew the United Kingdom, see if you really do. This great video was sent to us from our friend Cathy in Philly. Having gone to the U.K. (well, at least the England and Scotland parts), this was really fascinating.
 - I'm sure there are some errors in here  and some quirks, as people have pointed out like: Queen Elizabeth as 'Queen of England'. This is true, she is Queen of England, but as this video explains, she is also Queen of Scotland, Queen of the United Kingdom etc.. The English Crown was actually inherited by James VI, the King of Scotland, in 1603. Queen Elizabeth is also half Scottish. ALSO: The four countries of the U.K. are not "Sovereign" but the United Kingdom is Sovereign

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
