MaddieI too have a "Briland" license plate, but mine is on a Ford Explorer in Illinois. People are always asking me what "breeeland" means, but at least they are noticing it...

2brilndA-ha! That's who has the BRILAND license plate...
But yes, it is a small world. My first visit years ago was via mail boat (a "genuine" Bahamian experience few of my Bahamian friends have actually tried)and I quickly became hooked...although I favour slightly faster forms of transport these days. It's always a treat to meet others who know what "Briland" means!

ColinJust a little vignette:

On Saturday I spent four glorious hours getting my car fixed in a drab and drear suburb of Washington DC called Springfield. That in itself isn't very interesting.
A young lady and her parents were looking through the cars and my son kept running to the convertible that attracted the young lady's eye.

As the family prepared to leave I was on my way out and noticed the young lady had a DC license plate: 2Brilnd.

Of course, she travels to Briland every Christmas, loves it and we chatted about a few people we knew in common.

I didn't catch her name, but what a lovely event to brighten up a deadly dull and fairly unattractive day!

Briland to the rescue.
