  2. Tillerwoman says she knew the answer too.

    93.6% of English Zen masters get this right.

  3. Gosh and there's me thinking it was one of the "Berezovichopski" aristocracy

  4. I thought this would be an easy one for anyone with British roots.

    But seeking out some historical spots has proven a good way to see the English countryside.

    And I think this manor is a bit too modestly appointed for the Berezovichopskis, Max.

  5. OMG - I've heard of him! He said some things didn't he? Like, it was all in History at school. JP would know. There's only one Woodstock for Sassi!!

  7. Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I shall not put.

    1. They were more into presentation than cuisine.

      We had the mac and cheese special.

    2. Which knife and fork are you supposed to use for the mac and cheese special?

      WWWD?

    3. I don't know which effing fork to use (sorry about the language, have just been reading an Anna Railton post). That's what we have staff for.

  9. You and Anna should go for a bike ride together while you are in England. Cambridge is only an easy and pleasant walk from your small 500-year-old inn in Munchcombe.

  10. Yes he (WSC) was born there, but he wasn't first in line to inherit the estate under primogeniture; for his own estate see Chartwell in Kent.
    Best regards, Malcolm

    1. Yes, Malcolm, that was made clear to us on our visit. He wasn't raised there, but apparently liked visiting his relatives there. I think he may have just liked the mac and cheese. A young boy would have soon tired of staring at the same 128 walls all the time.
