After four years of blogging about my hometown I thought it was time to freshen things up a bit – with a new header – and a new title!
My original title, “From the Lou” took its inspiration from Nelly’s, Hip Hop reference to St. Louis as “The Lou”. Beginning today I’m transitioning to Chuck Berry’s, Rock reference to St. Louis as “St. Lou”. Some things will not change however.
This remains the blogspace of Maureen Kavanaugh, a life-long resident of and professional tour guide to the city of St. Louis, Missouri, which is situated on the west bank of the Mississippi River in the very heart of the U.S.A.
This blog is still meant to be a forum for the city’s most ardent fans and toughest critics (often they’re the same). And I continue to welcome comments from my readers while retaining the right to publish whichever of them I choose.
“St. Lou” has a deep and colorful history and, I believe, an exciting and important future. Join me as I explore it!
