    I always love your infographics, Lyla. You make me laugh, and I learn something along the way. (the bit about the estate names being like cat and dog names was particularly delightful!)

    Now I am in need of a dictionary.

  2. says

    I don’t know how I feel about this. Fun and clever, for sure, even if my inner codger is getting all uppity. And it’s clearly done out of love rather than efficiency. But Lizzy reading Burns? I don’t know; she’s too level-headed for that, for all her playfulness. She has a lot of Austen’s own ideals for herself, so I would guess she’d read Cowper like her creator.

    Oh, wait. Your graphic just made me think critically about Jane Austen. Well done.

    • says

      Well, our source on that did suggest that Burns was perchance a tad racy for Lizzy so we presume she did it in secret. What we do know is she wasn’t preferring to reading sonnets. 😉

    Delightful, Lyla!

    At last I know where those words on the SAT come from:

    Superciliousness in ductility of disposition
    Repined at connubial felicity
    Precipitance of peevish panegyric

    The grid can usually be mounted at different heights.
    Each grill comes with a slightly different pan, but in general they are similar.
    If you have a lot of little ones running around, the charcoal grills are a lot
    lighter and some just have the three legs.
