Tom's in New Zealand escaping the New England winter. He found Excellent Street near Collingwood on South Island. Consider this his postcard to all his readers. Also, you might want to scan through his photos on Flickr—there are some other beauties.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
