Did you ever get the feeling a certain leather clad knight could use a PR spruce up? Someone seems to equate his pursuit of Marian and position in the medieval world with a certain 4-legged prowler
and another...anyone know who's creating them?

How Cool is This?
Care to visit the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC? You can electronically navigate around each room. It's really a beautiful building with gorgeous works of art. Took my younger brother there for a visit after his graduation from high school - he was interested in art classes at that time. He never did pursue it any further(other than focusing on photography as a hobby) and instead became a High School Counselor..pleasant memories. We'll shortly get to reminisce at our niece's upcoming wedding. It's not for two mos but preparations are at full throttle..
Do you know a bride-to-be who has a 'bridezilla' attitude toward planning her wedding?
My niece is the antithesis of that sort of bride. e.g. It's an evening wedding, so her bridesmaids will wear floor-length dresses. Keeping that fact in mind, she told her attendants they could go ahead and choose any shoes they pleased since they will be covered by the dress. Learned when she related the story to me that I'm more of a bridezilla personality than she. Because I was aghast:)*gasp* that she'd been so casual(at least to me) about what type of shoe the females in her wedding party will wear. I said "yes, the long dress will cover their shoes most of the time but there will be moments when they're visible and wouldn't you want them to at least be the same color?" Being the adaptable, relaxed, laid back, sweet female that she is, she agreed the one color restriction would be fine.
What about you? Were you a taskmaster when it came to keeping your wedding party in line for the big day, or did you go with the flow and simply enjoy the party? If not yet married, do you know brides who exhibit the typical bridezilla attitude? That's usually the label given to women who crack the whip as far as making certain every tiny detail to do with the ceremony and bridal party are perfection?(despite the fact no wedding is ever error free..the small faux pas are what make them memorable)

Fascinating blog for Tudor buffs: http://sandrabyrd.com/blog/
EXCERPT: Sumptuary Laws in place during Tudor times regulated the wearing of rich fabrics to the upper classes, the number of meal courses to be served for specific guests, and the purchases of luxuries allowed for each social class. Henry VIII, in particular, was concerned about the rise of the wealthy merchant class with no connection to nobility, and so he revived and expanded the restrictions on clothing and other expenditures. For example, only members of the royalty were allowed to wear ermine, and only the nobility were allowed to wear clothing trimmed in fox or otter.
