C is for Christmas

Besides a five-year old child named Ceejay whom I love cheekiness, tantrums and all, I noticed that several heavyweights to me in terms of either fascination, physiological connection or sentimental value, come with names that start with letter C. Related one way or another, I enumerate them in thirteen sets. The final object in each set is not named but shown in a photo. Feel free to identify them. The obvious clues are they all begin with letter C and naming them is all for fun :)

1. chocolate cheese cake, coffee, cashew nut, corn and

2. cool companions, communication, colors and

3. C.S. Lewis, Chaucer and

4. cute, cheery, charming and

5. classical compositions, conductors, choirs, concerts and

6. chandelier, creative centerpieces and

7. chamomile, citrus, Crookshanks and

8. cypress, cottonwood and

9. cottage, Cinderella, and

10. calla lily, carnation and

11. cathedral, church and

12. chiffon, cashmere, cardigan and

13. carols, chimes, Christianity and of course

All images are from Google. The badge photo is from CUPCAKE JONES. I photoshopped the words. To see more or join Thursday Thirteen, click here.

I know most I think, but are we supposed to answer here? That would kinda spoil the fun for everyone else.

Anni, if you want, then yes, that's okay. I'm not just yet saying anything about whether a certain answer is the same as what's on my mind - in order not to spoil the fun :)

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…
