Can you guess why this girl jumps for joy?

Can you guess why this girl jumps for joy?

Could it be she's just pleased to get out of the London cab and rip off her Covid19 facemask?  Or could it be she's just deliriously joyful at being in London and not in Tallahassee, Inferno Florida? Let's be honest, August in Tallahassee is not the most pleasant...

Wouldn’t you like to recharge your awesomeness, here?

Wouldn’t you like to recharge your awesomeness, here?

As another hot August day turns into a hot August night (cue Neil Diamond here, for those of us old enough to remember him), we took a stroll outside to admire Thom's handiwork. Our little English garden, despite the searing triple digit heat index these days still...

Who turned 40 today? Maybe you, plus a Duchess …

For British Royalty fans everywhere Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, made her first appearance after giving birth to their second child (Lillibet Diana, in case you forgot). She turned 40 and started a new program, called 40 x 40, to ask famous people to donate 40...

Harlem Globetrotters are coming to Tallahassee, woo hoo!

Harlem Globetrotters are coming to Tallahassee, woo hoo!

I still remember that night at Wembley Stadium, London with my family. We somehow scored front row seats. (Not really "somehow". Fact is I had brothers and my mother liked them better than me, what can I say? For example, I don't ever recall a family night out at the...

What’s the best hotel in Tallahassee?

What’s the best hotel in Tallahassee?

Our Little English Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast is in the top 10% of hotels worldwide! Tripadvisor just notified us that, according to their stats, we are one of the best. We are chuffed to bits to say the least! Of all the hotels and all the real bed and breakfasts...

Click here for more Meghan and Harry – LOL

I watched the Oprah interview live on Sunday night. Then I read the scoop for the Monday night live- airing in Britain. On Tuesday I read the fallout. On Wednesday a breakfast TV anchor had quit over it. On Thursday a formal complaint had been filed. By Friday, I...

Who believes in solar / wind power?

Who believes in solar / wind power?

I do! I do! One would imagine being born and raised in London, we'd be so used to it being overcast and rainy that we would never hang clean washing on the line to dry and expect it to actually dry. But we did hang it out and it did dry (well, most of the time). We...

..Are we the only state in the US without snow?

..Are we the only state in the US without snow?

Being married to a meteorologist- wannabe (sorry, Thom, but it's true), I've grown used to receiving a weather forecast before a "Good morning". Even before a "Happy birthday" or a "Merry Christmas", there's a general announcement of the temperature in Tallahassee,...

…next month, Oprah!

…next month, Oprah!

It's official, Meghan and Prince Harry will not return as working members of the Royal Family. (Well, one can't really do that from California, in all honesty.) So this doesn't come as a huge surprise to those of us who follow this family (I'm assuming that means you,...

You may not know this, but if you book a hotel or B&B accommodation via an online travel agent, like Booking or Hotels dot com, Expedia etc, they charge the lodging establishment a hefty commission. In these difficult times for local (non-franchise) legal...

Where’s the best place to stay in Tallahassee?

Where’s the best place to stay in Tallahassee?

Last winter, I crossed pathways with a couple in a local lunchtime eaterie, close to the I-10, which is around the corner from the Little English Guesthouse. They had pulled off to grab lunch and were on their way South, returning to Tallahassee in a fortnight. I got...

Come sit awhile and sail away your troubles…

Come sit awhile and sail away your troubles…

It's been a scorcher of a summer! Triple-digit temperatures, stifling humidity, afternoon thunderstorms that last into the night added to all the other troubles we've had this summer. It just seemed like the heat (the political, emotional, financial and atmospheric...

Who should I vote for? Am I being bossy?

Who should I vote for? Am I being bossy?

There's less than a fortnight to go in the strangest election season ever. It's been a bit nasty, tempers have flared, in places where one might be surprised to hear such a heated argument. (A debate is not supposed to be an argument). And both Democrats and...
