Hi Sean. Just found your blog, and happy to have. Jealous of your sojourn to London, and haven't yet divined your base of operations. You have the sense of humour of a man from the north country, if yer English (I've known a few of those blokes). You and I have a few things in common: free-lance writing and editing, chess, and Lucinda Williams, who I have been a fan of since the late '80s. I'll be stopping by regularly, and presently waiting for more stories and pics of the London Classic. Cheers! -- Ken H. in Caleefornyea

Thank you, Ken! We do indeed have lots in common.

There was a report on a Lu concert back in 2007 which you may or may not have discovered:

North East England was an accurate guess! We have snow here today.
