1. Do you have a bucket list?

~ No, but here are five I'm gonna put in my bucket:

  1. Change career and grow up
  2. Come up with a study proposal that will earn me a PhD placement at a UK university
  3. Work for the National Trust and/or earn a paycheck that could fuel my games
  4. Kick off my son's music lessons
  5. Visit countries whose literature and culture I love

2. Do you think you have already fulfilled anything on your bucket list or bucket list to be?
~ working on them; the reason I have the list in the first place is because I see they are all feasible

  • instill in my son values that will help him become independent and keep him happy
  • Fulfill the bucket list
  • a hand in hand walk with Robin Hood's namesake at Sherwood Forest (oww... did I just say it?)
4. If it would take a lot of money to fulfill one of your wishes on your bucket list, would you try to find the money or just skip that one?
~ Find the money.

5. Fill in the blank -Life is just a -------- bucket list and then you have a life :-)

6. Fill in the blank -The glass isn't half empty it's ------ filled to the brim with endless possibilities that can make you happy

7. If you had a chance to be with your MOST favorite entertainer in the whole world before you leave this world, who would that be and how much time would you want to spend with them?
~ Robin Hood's namesake; one quality hour will do

8. If you were given the chance to go anywhere in the world before the end comes...where would you go and what would you want to see?

Rumford

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…

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.
