London, England

Greetings from my wonderful capital. I've been out of the NX loop but am honored to contribute to this box. I've added some British stamps & some tea -- drink up!

The British contribution to NX was certainly been eccentric but those of us in the know hold Cicely in our hearts.

The wonderful tube network; a source of pride. I live at the top of the northern (black) line - High Barnet.

Atlanta, Georgia
Area: 58,876; Capital: Atlanta; Nickname: Empire State of the South; Motto: "Wisdom, Justice, Moderation"; Song: "Georgia on My Mind"; Flower: Cherokee Rose; Tree: Live Oak; Fruit: Peach; Crop: Peanut; Bird: Brown Thrasher; Shell: Knobbed Whelk; Fish: Largemouth Bass; Insect: Honeybee; Gemstone: Quartz

I would have loved to include some of the things we Southerners are known for -- but most all is perishable! Grits, trees, flowers of every kind (especially Azaleas) and out beautiful green countryside. Y'all will just have to come visit to see our beauty.

Welcome from this crazy NX fan deep in the South! Well, Atlantans aren't exactly known for their *true* southern roots. But there are some of us who can call the great state of GA our homw. Welcome all of you wonderful NX fans!
