Welcome, Post Readers

Greetings to anyone who may have stumbled here from John Kelly's Commons, my new Washington Post blog. John Kelly's Voxford was the blog I wrote during my year in England. It's pretty much moribund, but if you, like me, occasionally pine for England, you might find some memories here, reasons both to miss England and to be glad you're not there. Here's something I wrote about British supermarkets. Here's a piece I did (with video!) on Oxford's strange May Day traditions. Here are reflections on the incredibly uncomfortable bus ride between Oxford and Cambridge (71 roundabouts!).

I hope you'll take time to stop by John Kelly's Commons and let me know what you think.

It's looking promising. See you on the other side :)

John, welcome back to blogging! I was going to post a comment until I read through the registration material on the Post. I'm not giving out my e-mail so the Post can send me surveys and use my personal info for marketing.

Anyway, I'll be your silent reader. Too bad as I'm always ready to comment on brain-sucking aliens. We New Yorkers don't have a borough complex although natives were horrified to hear I'd moved to Maine.

Fun to look back on those Oxford posts. Now I'll have to wax nostalgic for Voxford, home of the no strings comment.
