Want to thank someone(you know who your are:) for providing a link to photos we've seen before (most of them anyway) but a few vantage points are new to me. Plus the following humungous pix are to die for...enjoy!
Never saw this shot from this particular photo session..IMO, it's the best one - the others make RA's head look somewhat top heavy
Very first one above and the one below are other angles I'd never seen from two different photo shoots - IMO they're the best of both lots :)
We have Richardbabe to thank for the excellent manip below. She certainly fooled me:)
Have Mercy on Me: Sir Guy of Gisborne (Richard Armitage fanvid) from angie long on Vimeo.
O.K. now the world is reallllly getting unbelievably small...although must admit this one is in a rather nice way. See the drapes behind Sir Guy in the Some Like it Hot video? Well, at least a year ago, I bought new drapes for our living and dining rooms. Life became very busy and the drapes got shoved back in a corner of the basement until last evening. I finally pulled them out with intentions to hang, but kept asking myself..."why the heck do they look so familiar?" The reason is because they're the exact same pattern as in Sir Guy's below. *unblievable* The burgundy color goes beautifully with our rugs. Will never look at them again without thinking of the prince of black leather. One of the sweet serendipities in life:)

Recap: Season 1 Episode 1 - King Henry VIII, the young ambitious monarch of England, prepares for war with France but is dissuaded by the diplomatic manipulation of his powerful Lord Chancellor, Cardinal Wolsey, who proposes that the King sponsor a "Treaty of Universal Peace."
The harmony of the King's domestic affairs is threatened, however, when he discovers that Elizabeth Blount, the young and beautiful lady-in-waiting to his Queen, Katherine of Aragon, is pregnant with his child.
Does Steven Wadington, the actor playing Edw Stafford, look familiar to you? He played the king in RH II.

Religion -Hugh Bourne, founder of Primitive Methodism
Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire - Primitive Methodism was founded by Hugh Bourne, a native of Stoke-on-Trent, at a public gathering in the nearby village of Mow Cop. He originally followed the Wesleyan form of Methodism but in 1801 he reformed the Methodist service by conducting it outside. By 1811 with his brother he founded the first chapel in Tunstall. He promoted Sunday schools as a method of improving children's education as well as treating women as equals. He also was involved in the temperance movement. It was from the Primitive Methodists that many early trade unions found their early leaders.]
[family History: Those of my ancestors who were coal miners (they were also Primitive Methodists--helped build first PM church in their newly adopted community), would be horrified to learn my opinion of unionization in C21. Don't believe in it - it provides mediocre results from everything it touches. Yes, it was necessary in C19 and even up until mid C20. But that is no longer true.
Between the Prim Meth directive to treat women as equals and the fact the other branches of my family tree emigrated from Ireland (where from the beginning of recorded history female monarchs were common) I now understand my earliest strong conviction that women can do anything they desire in this world, once they set their minds to it.]
The English coal miners were identified as having lived, if Prim Meth church records are to be believed, in Selston, Nottinghamshire as early as 1720. IMO, prior to that they had emigrated from either Cornwall or Wales seeking employment in the numerous northern England coal collieries. http://www.nottsheritagegateway.org.uk/themes/coal.htm
