Good Morning Kossacks and Welcome to Morning Open Thread (MOT)


We're known as the MOTley Crew and you can find us here every morning at 6:30am Eastern. Feel free to volunteer to take a day - permanently or just once in awhile. With the Auto Publish feature you can set it and forget it. Sometimes the diarist du jour shows up much later: that's the beauty of Open carries on without you! Volunteer in the comment threads.

Good Morning to all. hi its me, exlrrp, the Stream of Consciousness guy. Ok, so what am I going to stream my consciousness over now? Just got done watching The Hound of the Baskervilles, the Jeremy Brett version. This is my favorite representation of the great Detective, Brett does it best.
I have been an English Mystery fan since back in The Day and Sherlock has always been one of my favorites. Don't know what it is about English novels I like so much but in addition to being a Sherlock Holmes fan I am a Wodehouse fan and a Flashmaniac. I have read all these books again and again.
Just something about British life I find jolly. When I was in GB I loved the quaint, the whole country is freaking quaint. I just eat up quaint. (Quaintest US state: OR) I was on the South coast and Devon, London, Cardiff and, of course Stratford upon Avon.
 I ate in  pubs, fish and chips, Bangers and mash and spotted dick. In Stratford u. A. I ate in a  restaurant from the 1400s ( thefood wasn't that old)
 And of course British trains are soooo superior.
Fascinating little country but crowded---around 60 million people in a space the size of California (35 million) Also they drive on the wrong side of the road. i put a sign in my car: Caution American Driver. I was doing OK but may have freaked out a few people on the traffic circles.

OK, thats enough for now, sitting here in my bed (clothes on!!)  Whew!, guess that wasn't so hard. You don't know what I go through for y'all

You guys can go ahead and start now if you want and then I'll be in 0530ish to put the place back in order and give it perspective.
Morning open Thread will begin in 5....4....3....2....1....NOW!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
