As Readers know, I was born in another world (1942, that is) that was much more insular. Some people had a pen pal in England or France (in other words, in Europe), but my schools weren't that advanced. As for the rest of the world, I bet the term "Pacific Rim" was unknown.
I am still not very well traveled, so I like it when I look at this blog and see that someone is reading it in - Edinburgh! India! - out on the Coast (West US, that is), which I may never get to visit again. So, being quite determinedly idle today, I have begun a list (see right margin), but I'm not on most of the time to see who's here. If you like, drop a comment to this post telling me where you're located, so I can add it to the list.
