Greetings Orange County!

Hello to my fellow authors and readers and commenters and so-forth and so-on. I suppose I should introduce myself shouldn’t I? My name’s Jon and I am ever so pleased to join the roster of authors for Orange County Metroblogging. Hooray! I’d just like to take this opportunity to wave my arms around wildly and draw lots of attention to myself. Hey look at me! Look at me!

Great, now that I got that out of my system I can tell you briefly about all about yours truly. Long story short: I (heart) OC! I am a transplant to this great county. You see, I spent my formative years in the Great Northwest fending off loggers and fisherman wishing I could live in sunny southern California — whiling away my days at the mall or the beach. That dream became fully realized when my wife and I moved to Anaheim, three years ago. We both live and work here and have a strong affection for our new homeland. As we struggled to get acquainted with our new and exciting surroundings I stumbled across Orange County Metroblogging and we both became entranced. Okay maybe not “entranced”, but we did enjoying reading the blog and even occasionally posted comments. Now, as fate would have it, I get to blog about the place I have grown to love! Sweet.

So, keep your eyeballs peeled for more posts from me soon. I’m sure I will catch you before it’s over, but in case I don’t, please have a safe and happy Hanukkah!

The pleasure’s been all mine,
