Choosing to enjoy life's possibilities
Wow! Thanks for sharing this. I really enjoyed it.
Did you see that Brian Williams had a spot about it on last night's news?
No, I missed that! Drat!
How the other half lives....How fun to see this! I had wondered if that portrait were Charles I - nice to have the suspicion confirmed.How do they keep that living room WARM? The ceilings are dreadfully high...Thanks for posting, Ginnie. I see that DA2 is up on pbs.org already so we'll be watching tonight. Can't wait to see the clothes (it's my favourite fashion era).
Not having watched Downton Abbey I can't comment on it, but in response to Mrs Micawber's question about how they heated it, I can tell you. I went to a boarding school that had once been a mid-Victorian mansion, and it still had its lovely ornate cast iron radiators and a huge furnace in the basement. We froze from September to Christmas, thawed out in the holidays at home, and returned to school to re-freeze till Easter. For the rest of the year, we were merely chilled to the bone.....
