Things that I really just did not know!

Since it's Sunday, I thought some biblical reflection may be in order.

Apparently, King James (he of the well-known bible version) was an avid uphill gardener. His favourite furrow to plough was apparently the Duke of B(uttf)uckingham.

A (careful) tip of the clown wig to the Whited Sepulchre.

Yep, he was a raving homosexualist hiding behind the cloak of respectability, (being married).

He liked to pick out young lads that would hang around his court.

Obviously, this happened when he moved down to London as clearly it's an English 'past-time'. ;o)

O bewigged one,
Thanks for the link, especially after I led you astray with the Shirley Sherrod business !
Also, any time I use the phrase "uphill gardener" I will give you a footnote.
