    Hi,Hmmm.  What to put in my intro ...I have been a history enthusiast for a long time, probably because I like to try to understand how things go to be the way they are now.  When I was in college studying computer science, I was trying to convince the school's one history professor to offer more classes.My interest in Britain probably started with British cars.  I have been a Lotus Cars enthusiast for a long time (and, more recently, a stage rally competitor and official), so most of the people that I know in GB are somehow involved with my car hobbies.  Also, I do family genealogy and most of my ancestors came from GB (though, from I have found so far, the most recent immigrant to the US was in the late 1800s). I have been slamming through the BHP episodes trying to get caught up.  I started almost two weeks ago and I am now up to episode 84 100.  It will be nice to get caught up, so I can catch up on the other podcasts that I listen to.The last time that I was in England, it was a family vacation where we just drove around looking for interesting places for 8 days.  One of the more interesting (non-automotive) places was Grimes Graves, a neolithic flint mine that you can climb down into.  We also went to Bath, but, after finding a Starbucks and Eddie Bauer there, it felt too much like home and we moved on.That's it.  Jamie, if you get up here and have time to kill, let me know.alan

    Hi Alan! It's always nice to welcome a fellow Pac northwesterner to the forums. I saw on twitter that you just caught up. Congrats!I've never been to grimes graves but it sounds fascinating!  I'll have to check it out on a future visit. :)
