    As far as I know the British team has been around at least as long as the IIHF has existed, so more than a century.

    In that case, I hope they don’t have too many triumphs, because nobody at home would notice.

    The award ceremony was lovely. It was organized by UB Dept. Romance Languages and Literature. The high school kids got their Dictée awards after the undergrads and postgrads received their degrees. It was an honour to be there.

    Congrats to your daughter. 4 languages during COVID is impressive.

    I think they won a gold once but way back in the 1920s or 30s.

The winner was a French girl who recently moved to America, and my daughter came second. Today is the award ceremony so I’m dressing up a bit.
    Tell her I said congratulations!
    Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
