    Here are some pics, I have taken. If I bore y'all I am sorry. We had tea today at 4 which I took picture of our meal, then we had dinner at the Ritz with my distant cousins, I took a picture of that, then of my Mimi's drawing room. Hope you all like.

    Did you notice the green in Mimi's drawing room then the color of my font? Green is our favorite color.

    It's a tasteful celadon and why am I not surprised that green is your favorite color?

    I don't think he said that however I agree it is a bit over the top.

    No. Afternoon tea is your own little peculiarity which has been adopted or imported with varying success to former colonies. Here in the US one only encounters it at expensive hotels who offer it for ladies who like to feel posh.
