What could be more British than the Morgan motor car, an iconic piece of engineering. The Morgan Motor Company, started in 1910 by Harry Frederick Stanley Morgan, originally creating 3 wheeled cars before in 1936 creating their first 4 wheeled cars. Over the years new models have been produced but all paying homage to the original styling's. In 2011 the company came full circle by producing a new 3 wheeled car.

Here you can see a few Morgans lined up outside the main offices, in the factory that the company has been in since 1918. It's a wonderful place containing history with modern touches. The cars and floor were highly polished but I may have brought this out just a bit more.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
