Response-to-comments Day again…

Since I’ll be busy with stuff (going into T.O. among other things), just a few responses to comments on my post ‘It all happened long ago…’ There’s CCT, who says: “ I just wonder who started year 1.” Here’s my answer: The Anno Domini era began with Dionysius Exiguus, a monk who devised it around 525...

It all happened long ago…

The Western Roman Empire was ruled by Flavius Honorius Augustus, who had become Emperor in 395 when he was a mere ten years old. The empire’s power was fading already, and things got worse. In the year 410 the Visigoths sacked Rome, and that was also the year the last Roman troops left Britain.... Sign in to see full entry.

Rumours of my death are definitely an exaggeration…

…the facts are far more prosaic. The two vaguely human members of this household simply came down with the flu and strep throats, beginning a few days before Christmas, and are only now slowly recovering.

I’m thinking of the children…

I’m sure there were many – Christmas is a magic time for children all over the civilized world, and a visit to the Christmas market and its joys heightens the anticipation for the ‘Big Day’… I don’t know how many of them are among the twelve killed and the forty-eight injured, but even those not...
