Welcome to Black Oak Ridge
Black Oak Ridge gave her name to the sprawling, tree-filled city that "ended the
greatest war there will ever be" (rather comforting, that), as
John Hendrix, prophet and hill
man, described the coming of the Manhattan Engineering District more than
half a century beforehand. Outer Drive, which runs along the spine of Black Oak
Ridge (joined by East Drive and West Outer Drive, all the same road), is, as its
name implies, the edge of the city. Tiny Marlow clings to the foot of the western
slope, and the eastern one runs down towards the heart of the city. Here's where
my parents live, and here you can find out
Hey! Alison and Ryan, the cutest kids in East Tennessee!
Of course, I'm a strong introvert (see below), so I don't really have a
lot to say!
Who I am all at once, with schools, and information
about the Baltimore-Washington area, or in brief
- The obligatory
pictures of my really very sweet cat, Gwen.
Introverts "Those anti-social, party-pooping wierdos", Or, "I Vant
to Be Alone!"
Language Words, words, words. I love words. Everything about them ...
I don't watch much TV, but I am opinionated. Here are DVD recommendations, too.
Reading Books and magazines I read, with periodically changing
recommendations, and occasional reviews of things both old and new.
Listening The music I like, with periodically changing
recommendations, and a page on opera.
Playing The games I like
Sports The teams I love and follow.
Politics Warning! Danger Will Robinson! Liberal Approaching!
