A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Blood Will Tell A Medical Explanation of the Tyranny of Henry VIII - Kyra Cornelius Kramer A very intriguing and fascinating look at the medical history of Henry VIII; while most histories assume that Henry had syphilis, the author gives an entirely new reason for Henry's decline as he aged, and the unfortunate attempts of his wives to give him a healthy child. While the author does use quite a bit of medical terminology, it is presented in very readable language. Four stars overall, and especially recommended for those interested in Tudor history.
