Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 310

The Best of Howard County

Yes, I live in Howard County, Maryland, USA and it is pretty awesome.

There are some great things, some super things and some things which are simply the best.

Simply the best!

Simply the best!

Voters voted and the best of the best (From Ob-GYN to Doggie Day care, from Cupcakes to Dry Cleaners) were awarded their gongs by Howard Magazine – hurrah!

What was ace for me, as someone who’s been here just 16 months, was that I was in that room congratulating many of my friends who do good things in the community, who are at the top of their game, and are the best in Howard County.

And I ate shrimp and grits, which was also bloody brilliant! (Where have you been all my life shrimp and grits?!)

This is Bonnie, she's the best Personal Trainer in Howard County - and I can verify that she is fabulous and has amazing nails too :)

Britsh / American stuff

So I posted a couple of topics written by other people up on my Desperate Housewife in Washington Facebook site today…..and ooooer, a bit of a do was created!

There was this about American sayings that baffle Brits and this about a tribute to British drivers by an American.

I never want people on either side of the pond to miss out on the hot topics of debate, so feel free to muscle on in!

This is the one that caused the most controversy - but you might feel that you couldn't care less or that you could care less, or whatever!

My favourite blog at the moment is this: Separated by a Common Language – ’tis so true what that clever chap George Bernard Shaw said!
