Thought for the Day

I am amazed at what a cup of English Breakfast Tea and some protein can do for one's mood.

I am continually reminded that the British are on to something.

The Chinese also consume a lot of tea for the health benefits. What kind of protein did you have?

Tea is definitely much better for you than soda and coffee. I think it was peanut butter and garbanzo beans. Not together!

The British are odd but they have innovated a great many things over the centuries. I guess that's why they almost conquered the globe?

Anyway there are many of their traditions we love - afternoon high tea being one. It is a great date for my wife and I when we go out for one of these. We are lucky to be close to Victoria BC, what I like to call "Little London"

I wish I lived there! Sadly, many of our "tea rooms" have closed here, due to the economy. There is one that remains open and is well worth going to. It is called Cross and Bluebird.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
