Jersey, etc.

On Jason being from Jersey and all that entails. It sounds like saying "I'm from Jersey" certainly conveys a different image to a Briton than saying "I'm from New Jersey" does to a Yank. I guess I would have imagined, based on what little I know of Jersey --and that being from German TV documentaries even before learning about it from Jason-- that it's not destitute but also not that it is overtly posh. Landed gentry that escaped the tyranny of life on the mainland, those that work for (and serve) them, and then the natives.  

How many generations do your Jersey roots go back, Jason? Just out of curiosity. I would still like to get out of my dad what he can tell me about my biological grandfather having been either an English "flyer" or aircraft designer, but he's not talking about it at this point. It would have been nice to have had a name to look up blood relatives when I was over there for 2-1/2 months this past autumn & winter. 

I would definitely say that you come across as laid back, but also well off. It's the way you present yourself. Your it typical Jersey? I guess I never thought you sounded anything like anything other than an educated southerner.

All this reminds me...I owe a couple of Thanet pubs some postcards. It was sad leaving them when I did.
