Today is my 46th birthday and as good a day as any to start a blog. I thought about calling my blog "A Life With Deacon" as most stories these days have to do with various incidents and calamity involving our border collie. But there is another side to my life that has nothing to do with reality. It's the seemingly never ending obsession I have with Englishness and all that that entails. So this blog is going to be my own little English bolthole right here in Canada.
