Located in London on Craven St Excerpt:
Craven Street was originally known as Spur Alley until it was redeveloped by William Craven, afterwards 5th Baron Craven, from 1728...Benjamin Franklin moved into the first floor rooms of No 36 in 1757, when he came to London as a representative of the Colony of Pennsylvania. He remained in the house until 1762, when he returned to America. Two years later he came back to London to contest the moves by the British government to tax the American colonies without representation. He stayed once again with Mrs Stephenson at No 36, and lived in the house until 1772 when they both moved to No 1, since demolished. He returned to America in 1775.
I was commissioned to carry out the paint analysis of the interior and exterior of the house. My company Papers and Paints mixed all the colours specially to my instructions.

[Ricrar: Did Benjamin Franklin before journeying to London as the Rep for Colony of PA ask acquaintances in the PA General Assembly if they could recommend a place for him to live while in that city? Perhpas one replied that his friend Wm Craven owned property with rooms to rent and conveniently located close to government offices?]
Craven County bears the name of William, Earl of Craven, one of the eight original Lord Proprietors of the province of Carolina, and his nephew, William, Lord Craven, who succeeded him as Lord Proprietor. Established in 1712, Craven County was the site of North Carolina's first capitol
New Bern, NC - Tryon Palace - Colonial Governor’s Residence (actor & writer Tom Tryon was a member of the Tryon family)
In 1663, King Charles II issued a royal charter to eight nobles to settle the area south of Virginia. They created Carolina and included the previous settlement. However, because of internal problems, the crown took over the colony and formed North Carolina and South Carolina out of it in 1729.
All of the above brought to mind a conversation we had about the social networks.
Yesterday while walking around our fav lake, hubby and I started to discuss the differences between FB and Twitter. He only participates at Facebook, and gave his opinion of it in a nutshell with the words “it’s shallow.”
I told him about one of the first tweets I’d ever read as a new member of twitter: “on Facebook you try hard to impress friends and family, while on Twitter you tell the unvarnished truth to strangers.” Then went on to give my opinion that Twitter is also more informative and educational as well (or more correctly has the potential to be the latter)
Of course, it all depends on who you choose to follow whether or not you’ll benefit from that social network. In my case, I’ve tried to include people who not only represent my interest in RA, but also other personal penchants, hobbies. One of my primary interests has always been history and historic buildings.
Was very pleased today to find a person on Twitter whose business analyzes the paints and papers in historic buildings. When what to my wondering eyes should appear but “Benjamin Franklin’s House” in London. That discovery led to the list of bookmarks above. Wm Craven’s nephew inherited his title and properties - he and Franklin were contemporaries. The Craven family is one of those granted a royal charter by Chas II which resulted in founding of the colony of Carolina - it later split into North & South.
Interested in how the designer who RA wore to LA premiere might dress you, OR whose designs you might want to emulate in future additions to your wardrobe? Which style would you be most likely to wear?..
Twitter this and that:
My ol' twitter pal(& Musa's), Cardinal Wolsey(Sam Neill), has a blog for his winery. Be prepared to read posts about the animals on his grounds. For instance, they own chickens and each one is named after a film star:) There's a list of names and alongside Meg Ryan's name is says "busy making a chick flick"
Sue mentioned noticing Philip Winchester in Camelot(Leontes) and then casually made a reference to a certain bum, which prompted the need for the following bum runoff, so to speak:)
