Mrs. E's Tea Room

My name is Mrs. E, I am known by many names though, each one beginning with the letter E. My Tea. Room is everywhere in reality. Chances are you have visited me before. Everything here is a matter of perspective as I get visitors from all corners of reality. That raptor in the corner of  your eye you thought was drinking tea and eating crumpets? Yes, his name is Jeff. As I said, it's all a matter of perspectiveSee More

"Flying machines are very Victorian.  The problem with trying to nail down specific technology to specific time is that steampunk is divergent from our history and timeline.   The major divergences, as far as technology goes, is that…"

Thanks Luke,

I look forward to your eventual help, no matter how far down the line. I have to deal with a few practical life issues myself on return from my holiday, but I will be back at the front end of pushing this project forward very soon and the more help I get the easier it will be to ...pardon the pun....get off the ground!

Hi Luke,

I am Italian but have dual nationality and so am also South African!

Will you not please join the L.E.A.D. subforum in the Stempunk Empire and contribute your thoughts to my project of actually building a REAL small airship that would carry 2-3 people on an extended journey that would ignite the media and thus make airships a reality again. I have posted quite a bit of info, but you are the best "prop" man I have seen yet, and your views, skills and contribution would be very helpful. I also sent you a friend request, so I hope you will accept in due course. Best Regards, Giuseppe
