    Threads from "An Old English Tapestry"

    Thanks for the reply. I know you're busy; please don't waste any time re-reading anything just to satisfy my random curiosity. I just liked the term, with its obvious connection to 'kin slaying' - my mind goes off in strange directions sometimes...

    Miscellaneous >1900 (Alternate) History Thread

    Whilst there may well have been a slight increase in sales, I don't think it would be possible to quantify them, as Earl Grey tea is produced by so many different companies in many different countries.

    How's this? (click the thumbnail for the full-size image) The 4th quarter isn't great, but without re-doing the lion's body completely it's the best I could do for now - the alternative was for the lions to be much smaller, which I didn't think you'd want.
