Default I'm from England ....

Hi everyone,

Thank you for letting me join your community. I've been reading bits and bobs over the last few days and I'm very much looking forward to learning from everyone.

52 years young, I live in Derbyshire, UK, where I specialise in actor headshots and stage photography.

Thanks,
Jenny

Jenny,

Glad to be the first to greet you as you step in our living quarters! I have fond memories of England and have tried, as best to maintain my courtesy, use of a knife and fork, cool under pressure and pronunciation of important words like tomato, potato and garage. However, driving on the "pavement" was difficult for me to parse in my first driving test here! They have a special code name for that and it's called a "sidewalk". The "pavement" here is the road where one drives, LOL!

While my stock of the best English teas is always maintained, it has also hosts tea from far South of the White Cliffs of Dover, yes, I must shamefully admit, namely, Marriage from Paris.......... and here in Los Angeles, beer is served cold! Also spelling has been eroded by the U.S. "English" simplified versions.

Also I'm very grateful for my Grammar School education, Shakespeare plays and all and the stories of valor and community spirit all throughout the time of V-2 rockets and bombers pounding homes of Londoners during the war. I was 4 on v-Day and remember the cheering and parties in the street by mountains of rubble and brick.

Everything I have is grounded in my experience from Owen and Elgar to Fish & Chips in yesterdays Daily Mail!

Asher

Thank you, Asher!

We have a saying here, "keep death off the roads, drive on the pavement"

I am glad you have fond memories of England, and you have finally answer a question of mine, "How to make use of a Daily Mail?"!
