genejosh, i am a teacher by profession who, like you at some point fancied becoming a doctor (or maybe it was just the influence of a manliligaw who is a medical doctor now). i've been teaching for years too many than what i originally planned, until the company that runs the business institute which employs me sent me off to a different department - business administration to teach business communication which i sometimes call business miscommunication lol...

anyway while most pinoys in thailand are teachers, there are a few who are not like the musicians and business people. i know one pinay who works in advertising, another one who is a travel magazine editor, and my own pinoy co-teacher who is originally a CPA. but then there are also a few who are completely misplaced like my college roommate who is a full-fledged medical doctor and now teaching 3rd grade here. mangatawa nalang mi usahay... at least we have our economy back home going nowhere to blame when we are not teaching or blogging :))

ok, i'll check out that other tag.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
