Hello, I’m a Brit who unexpectedly ended up emigrating to the USA in 2008. Unexpectedly, as in, at the beginning of 2007 I had no intention of visiting the US on vacation, let alone living here. And now, here I am in Springfield, Missouri, in the American Midwest with the love of my life, my wife Ginger. I have two grown sons and a couple of grandchildren in the UK, and three step-children here in the US, all of whom have fled the nest.
I should add that we share our home with our cat Tubby.

The yew trees at Kingley Vale are large and old (400 years or so), they are also weirdly contorted as can be seen here.
