LILLIAN CROOK: WildDakotaWoman — Is There Any Doubt I’m A Cartographic Geek?

Is there any doubt I’m a cartographic geek? Is there any doubt I’m an Anglophile?

I’ve already begun a list of destinations for my return to the United Kingdom and Ireland! Meanwhile, I’ve got some scones to bake, testing a recipe from the BBC. And yes, I binge-watched Season 3 of “The Crown” already.

    Next time you go to Ireland, I recommend that you stay at the B&B “Gort-na-gow,” the house where my great-grandfather, John Burke (ne Bourke) was born. It’s just outside the town of Holy Cross, Co. Tipperary, a bit south of Thurles.
