Because of where I am based, it is inevitable that the blog will have a UK-flavour. I do try to explain what might be UK-specific terms in the Glossary, but if you feel I have missed anything, please get in touch. I live not far from the city of Salisbury, and volunteer for the local branch of a national charity, Age UK. Please note that I am not a spokesperson for this (or, indeed, for any) organisation.
