Going Native

I mentioned in a previous post that a Scotsman was joining my team of programmers. He started on Monday. In the twenty-five years that he has lived in the US, it seems that he has picked up several American habits; he pronounces the last letter of the alphabet as “zee” and the second letter of the Greek alphabet as “Bayter”.

I have no intention of going native in this way and intend to remain British through and through.

On an unrelated note here is a picture of me outside our new house.

  1. Where is the gun rack?

    Would a gun rack be a good housewarming gift?

    Or would you prefer a Confederate flag?
