Q:I'm tired T . . . can I trouble you for inspiration for the week?
here you go anon
It’s a beautiful sunny fall day, I have a homemade yerba maté latte in my hand, and I’m going to take a drive through the slowly changing foliage while listening to my Vince Guaraldi dominant “jazz impressions of autumn” playlist to go see my mom. It is a good day.
Police dismantle Occupy Hong Kong protesters’ encampment

The British country house has long been regarded as the jewel in the nation’s heritage crown. But the country house is also an expression of wealth and power, and as scholars reconsider the nation’s colonial past, new questions are being posed about these great houses and their links to Atlantic slavery.
This book, authored by a range of academics and heritage professionals, grew out of a 2009 conference on ‘Slavery and the British Country house: mapping the current research’ organised by English Heritage in partnership with the University of the West of England, the National Trust and the Economic History Society. It asks what links might be established between the wealth derived from slavery and the British country house and what implications such links should have for the way such properties are represented to the public today.
