Never economize on luxuries.
Angela was born in 1890 and she had a very good life. She married twice, lived in England and abroad. Her family are all big deal kind of people (prime ministers, artists, writers, etc)
and she is related to Rudyard Kipling (Rikki-tikki-tavi and the Jungle Book). She wrote books that were set in the English countryside. Her first novel was Three Houses--a memoir of her happy childhood. You can find out more at www.angelathirkell.org from the Angela Thirkell Society (a fan club). Have a happy day.
Just in case you are over in this direction....The school I work at is having a fund raiser at McDonald's located at Madison and San Juan in Carmichael. The school gets 20% and the staff will be there tripping over the shoes of the real workers!!! It is possibly the nicest McDonald's ever!!!! Come on by--Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at 4pm-8pm. I'll be working there 4pm to 6pm and then I am taking dinner home to the family!
