It sounds like a bad idea to get rid of email and blog.

Yes, between French Canada & English Canada, its always some battle going on.

Mrs B  have you seen what trouble the French get into when they try to ban English in their every day language.

"France has launched a new drive to stop a glut of English words from invading the native tongue.
Terms including "email", "blog" and "fast-food" should all be banished from the language, according to French culture ministry chiefs.
Others words threatening to steam-roller French vocabulary out of existence are "supermodel", "take-away" food and "low-cost airline".

We certainly have many words which mean the same thing.

A side effect of the Norman Conquest of England was the introduction of Anglo-Norman French. An estimated 28% of English words have French origin.

William the Conqueror's March on London

William the Conqueror (r. 1066-1087 CE) was victorious at the Battle of Hastings in October 1066 CE, and Harold Godwinson, King Harold II of England (r. Jan - Oct 1066 CE) was dead. The English throne and kingdom were there for the taking but there was still much work to be done before the Normans could claim the rights of conquest. Taking Romney, Dover Castle, Canterbury, and Winchester, amongst others, William’s army captured and subdued towns and fortifications throughout the south-east of England until, finally, the Conqueror turned south and marched on London in November 1066 CE. The city, then the focal point of Anglo-Saxon resistance, surrendered without a fight so that William was able to be crowned in Westminster Abbey on Christmas Day of 1066 CE. The conquest of England was by no means complete but it was clear that the Normans were here to stay.

Bauhaus in pictures: The architects exiled by Nazis

Established in 1919, in the wake of World War One, Germany's Bauhaus art school brought a radical new approach to design and aesthetics which would eventually go on to help inform modernist architecture around the world. Now in its centenary year, we look at a selection of some of the buildings shaped by the influential art school.
The Bauhaus was founded in Weimar by Prussian architect Walter Gropius (1883-1969). While Bauhaus translates as "building house", Gropius didn't want to build only houses; instead, he wanted to create artists who could turn their hands to anything. Students were taught pottery, printmaking, bookbinding, carpentry, typography and advertising. They were encouraged to look at the world around them in a new way, studying in hands-on workshops that were the opposite of the stuffy and elitist lectures of many contemporary design schools.
In 1925, the Bauhaus relocated to the city of Dessau, where Gropius designed a new base for the school. With a steel frame structure and large walls of glass, the building featured many characteristics of modernist architecture.
