  1. Having 8 kids, in an affluent household, with nannies and governesses, isn't quite as onerous as having 8 kids and no help. Just sayin'.
  2. ...wait! I think I see a faint "Philipable" scratched along the purfling...if you squint just right, I'm sure it's there...
  3. Watcha gonna do if you find Templar treasure? Wear it? Sell it? you have any right to it? Who does it "really" belong to? Don't you have to return it to the original family? Or...are you the only heir? I'm thinking Catherine the Great might owe me something...not sure what, but something, unless what I'm owed is pre-owed to someone else. Or maybe I'm thinking Stalin owes me something? It's all so confusing...

That's my takeaway from reading the summation of the book, on the blog I linked to. The rest, without reading the book, really is pure assumptio
  10. Then there's "waldie". If you have a Waldie Wait. That would be Walter Mitty...
  11. Why thank you! We can discuss Mucha. What of Mucha would you like to discuss?
  12. BTW...the daughter works with/supports battered women's organizations. Telling?
