An Englishman in Eugene

I'm an Englishman, married for three and a half years to a wonderful American, and within the next year we plan to move to from London to Eugene in Oregon to live, work, and raise a family. Our reasons for moving I will go into later, but for now let's say I've lived in London, capital city of the United Kingdom, for most of my life, and I fancy a change.

In this blog I plan to celebrate (or sometimes bemoan) those aspects of American life that strike me as worthy of comment. I'm hoping to complete at least one entry a week, somewhat like Bill Bryson's Sunday Times newspaper column that was re-published as "Notes from a Big Country". I will also be commenting on the move process, and maybe about aspects of British life that I come to miss.

I hope you will find my blog amusing and possibly informative.
