  1. England Blog

    Not having the time while abroad to keep up two blogs, the post here is to direct any interested parties to the blog I have recently started up about my travels through England. Good for anyone curious to see pictures of England or curious about Katherine Parr, last wife of Henry VIII:

  2. English Food

    Hi All--Having a wonderful trip to England and just settled into Oxford where I have spent a heavenly afternoon among the ancient books of Duke Humfrey's Library at the Bodleian. Have been snapping hundreds of pictures on my tour thus far and, bearing in mind the lengthy discussion of foods that has taken place on these forums here http://www.online-literature.com/for...ad.php?t=46567, took some pictures of the local fare as well. Before posting anything so boring as pictures of Parliament ...

  5. Winter's Tale part I

    These two blog entries are a response to the Winterís Tale discussion going on in the Shakespeare Discussion section of the forums (http://www.online-literature.com/for...ad.php?t=35848). It set out initially as a very short post, but I found myself becoming quite verbose. I thought that people who have either been following the thread, or have read the play before might be interested in the mini-essay I ended up with, so I decided to post it here for perusal. I've only really had a chance ...
