Members are expected to keep the discussions friendly and polite and to avoid personal attacks on other members. The moderators reserve the right to shut down a thread without warning if they believe it necessary.

Thank you, MLE. (I am so tired I read that as "circumcised" and boy howdy did that make for a new angle on interesting history ... would explain more blood feuds than just Jacob's, though.)

I'm so glad to have discovered this site some time ago. I never would have realized this about Alison Weir. I know I sound liner a whiner, but I was just hoping for the truth. I don’t know how I could expect that from a book when I don’t expect from the news media reporting on recent things. Sigh.
