Thank you for your kind welcome letter.

My home in New Hampshire in the USA. You can watch spring unfolding outside my window with robins on my lawn and maple buds. I've written articles for Wikipedia but I like the more playful, informal style encourages by H2G2.

One concern I have is with the requirement for British spelling. My writing style is American and the British spelling may look out of place. For example, we still use the subjunctive. Either style is fine but I'm not sure about the hybrid. I don't want to seem like one of those Americans who irritates everyone by faking a British accent. What suggestions do you have?

Again, thank you for taking the time to send me useful information.
