A Georgian Trifle And Hope For The Future #curiousarchaeologist

Another rather splendid post from my brother to set our current problems in its historical context.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Happy New Year, Geoff! What an enlightening post. Marietta, Pennsylvania, near where I live, has the honor of being the first mass produced vaccine for smallpox. https://lifewithldub.blogspot.com/2016/04/the-what-ever-happened-to-vaccine-story.html

    Also, does the whole family write or what?!

    That was intriguing. My smallpox scar looks as though it came from being repeatedly poked with something. Perhaps it was.
