The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether


The Teetotalers

Some ideals of the Victorian era are still held in high regard, some are archaic, and some are hideous embarrassments that have NOT been adapted by the contemporary Steampunk. No need to support temperance, but suffrage and equality are required.

In England, back a few hundred years, those who deigned to drink liquor of any fashion, be it wine, barley or hops, would refuse such beverags by saing "No, thank you, I drink tea, totally."  The…Continue

I have just published a blog article on texting at the table.  You can read it at my profile page.

I always wondered why ladies gloves had those buttoned openings at the wrists.  I thought it was just a matter of easing them onto your hand, but recently learned that this also allowed a lady to remove her glove to "take tea" without actually taking it off.  I can't say how many orpahns I have due to removing one glove to use my cell phone.

I recently exited several groups here due to my lack of participation, but when Miss Bourke joined here I was intrigued.  I have something of a passion for gracious living and keeping alive those manners and social traditions that support it in the 21st century, while leaving behind the rest.  I have written extensively about this on my blog and I am always looking for more input.

A cup of tea sounds good, in fact I am having a cup now, with a slice of lemon.  There is nothing nicer then a gathering of teetotalers, in the  grip of refined manners and awesome conversation.

Due have a good day.

Where have everyone's manners gone?  Not the lovely genteladies and gentlemen on this board, but the cads born in the late 20th and early 21st centuries are quite loathsome.  Instead of Debrett's, there is Snooki.  Such a shame. 

I think I will ponder this on my fainting couch.

Welcome, Lady Bess and all of our newcomers and hello again to all of our members! I would be tickled pink, but I prefer the idea of being tickled lime similar to a certain rare feline.

I do like my cuppa but have to admit I have an occassional nip of the hard stuff (southern Comfort to be exact) I hope I am still welcome.
