It’s a History Thing:
Reading a book and come across something you don’t get? Don’t have the time or gumption to figure it out? I will try to find an answer (if the question is appropriate and fits the theme). Most recently I have looked at the British “Ton” and the game of “whist:” both are seen a lot in historic fiction. I called it “Who’s Your Daddy” because, it seems, in historic fiction one’s father’s status could be the primary determinant of the rest of your life. But it’s not limited to questions from historic fiction. I will entertain any questions. “Whist”fully Speaking, or What’s Whist? http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/2014/01/getting-whistful.html Oh, I recetly came across this excellent post at DASHING DUCHESSES about historical romance — narrows down the eras. http://dashingduchesses.com/?p=3025

I’ll explore ideas, phrases, movements, books, movies, etc. that became part of popular culture when I was growing up. It’s part of my lexicon but possibly not that of a slightly younger set. My first entry is about the phrase “Love is never having to say your sorry.” http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/2014/01/new-feature-pop-princess.html January 18 Ed Sullivan’s Really Big Show: http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/2014/01/ed-sullivan.html Again, if you have a question that you think fits, ask me. I love to have ideas for posts.
