I need to check out Journey's new front man.

Interesting answers!
I liked the second answer very much.

Thank you very much for the nice words you left at Anya's about my blog. :)

To AD, I heard my name is veeeerrryyy old. I think it's nearing extinction. My very Catholic father wanted to name me after a saint - Maria Theresa. I wouldn't have minded :-)

To Harriet, Thank God it's a dog this time, one of my favorite animals. When I was a kid, I read a children's encyclopedia and found my namesake there - a witch.

To Genejosh, posting the award in a bit. Thank you, sis.

To Kimber, I would be well looked after and hopefully spoiled if I were a dog owned by a wealthy dog-lover :-) I fancy the idea.

To Anya, we could dance together then. Let's just try not to roll on the floor when we both make a wrong step at the same time lol!

To onangelwings, when you check out Journey's new frontman, you will know why I think he is sexy *wink*

To Indrani, it's always a pleasure to visit your blog :)

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…
