Sir Francis Bryan The First Rockstar?

With the U.S. release of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall on PBS this week, Americans will be re-introduced to the lure of England’s King Henry VIII. Many of us have shared a passion for this era in history for a while; yet others are learning of the intrigue and drama of this era for the first […]

HOW TO HOST A TUDOR-THEMED DINNER PARTY by Alison Weir

HOW TO HOST A TUDOR-THEMED DINNER PARTY by Alison Weir

Alison Weir. When she became my friend on Facebook, I cried. This lady writes history books which are so well written they read as easily as fiction. When I visit the U.K., I haunt book stores, looking for U.K. First Editions of her books, to correspond with the U.S. First Editions I own. She has […]

Counterfeit Patriots

Counterfeit Patriots

 Though we regularly elect to be governed, we must never consent to be ruled!     The originator of the scurrilous letter signed by 47 faithless Neoconfederate senators is Tom Cotton. He is a war-monger of long standing, but unlike so many of his ilk, he has faced hostile fire. Combat experience does not make […]

Without modern technology and the information from that technology that we have today, they struggled to make sense of why things worked the way they did. Some of their questions included: Why does rain fall from the sky? Why […]

My Book isn’t selling. Here, Let Me Shit on Yours

My Book isn’t selling. Here, Let Me Shit on Yours
