testing out the gear

This is just a test.

Excitement builds!

London here I come! Time is flying bye and the "to-do" list is getting shorter. Tuesday I received the final briefing on all things related to London and am especially looking forward to using the term "bubbles & squeaks" when ordering lunch. If I can perfect my English accent before leaving they will never know I am from America; unless my white sneakers give it away. Tally Ho!

Safety briefing yesterday! I am now paranoid about riding the Tube in London. If any strange person gets near me I will immediately assume they are a pick-pocket and scream for help! That will be a sure way to build strong rapport with the locals.

In the begining...

I am preparing for the Study Abroad trip to London and as part of my extensive study of all things English I have been reviewing the many fine culinary dishes produced by the fine folks over there in Great Britian. The first example I discovered was Bangers and Mash! I love the name and know that I could consume a steady amount of Bangers and Mash and be perfectly happy; maybe not healthy but at least happy, for awhile. So I changed the name of my blog to Big Bickets of Bangers and Mash in honor of the beautiful dish and the really cool name. I will be sure to include photos of my first actual encounter with the meal as soon as possible.
