I think we have even more fighters than tanks.. and we have about 30 fighters in total.

EDIT: Actually we really have only 10 fighers, I thought you were joking.

In Spanish they end with "re". Same thing for French, Catalan or Aragonese. But in the last one (They don't consider it even a language), December is named literally "Advent".

"-re" in Italian, too. Well, actually the common root is "-bre", and in latin languages you can easily recognize the origins of those names:

- Settembre, "Sette" = 7
- Ottobre, "Otto" = 8
- Novembre, "Nove" = 9
- Dicembre, "Dieci" = 10

The reason has to be found in those times when March was the first month of the year, January and February being the last.

Then the "-bre" root was switched with "-ber" in Germanic languages, I think it followed the pronunciation as in "centrum" -> "centre" -> "center".

My new van I am going to be driving for a while around Europe. Just did a roundtrip Austria-UK-Austria in it, and it is as smooth as a baby`s bottom. Why am I driving on French plates? Why not...

That's a small van for transportation of goods...

It may be cheaper in tolls though.

- Ianuarie
- Februarie
- Martie
- Aprilie
- Mai
- Iunie
- Iulie
- August
- Septembrie, "Şapte" = 7
- Octombrie, "Opt" = 8
- Noiembrie, "Nouă" = 9
- Decembrie, "Zece" = 10

And "center" is "centru"

It is. For French tolls it is exactly 2 metres, so it is up to the machines to put me in class 1 or 2, but mostly 1, so I pay cheaper tolls. Also, due to the crisis there is not a lot on, so it's a lot cheaper to have a smaller van. can still carry 4 pallets, and the sprinter was getting too expensive. This one is also very economical on fuel, and still managed to blast with 170 km/h through Germany last night. Filled up on the Heerlen-Aachen border last night, and managed to get to Mayrhofen on one tank. Why a French plate? Through a French branch of a UK company that hires them there. Everyone will think I'm Lyonaise.... (69 Rhone-Alpes)

If I remember right from the school it was because during the Roman Empire March (and thus the spring) was the beginning of military operations every year. March cames from Mars, the God of the war for Romans.

On Scandlines to Denmark and Sweden and Silja Line Stockholm to Helsinki it will be. On Dover to Calais or Dunkerque ferries it won't make much difference.

for example the ferry to Texel. When your car/van is longer than 5,25/5,50 meter (one of the two) you pay 15 euros extra (that's back and forth together)
I don't know how long Road_UK's old van was...
