    his will precluded the possession of his castle by any “blithering sap-head who has no conception of where he is or with what surrounded”.

    LOL! I love it!

    Sometime, I want to spend a night in a castle. If it’s haunted, I’ll need to spend the night with many many good looking men to protect me. 😉

    I think that I will put myself on your schedule and just add something new on fridays. (i get plenty of hits, but not much communication, I do thank you for dropping by from time to time, I will just add a castle about once or twice a month and other culture things the other times)

    As of now, I have a very lengthy list to post but It is o.k., I am enjoying doing and compacting this for people.
