Sounds like you have had an enjoyable family Christmas indeed, Beth. Interesting how you note the "separation" of yourself and your cousin from the traditional family path. While I was reading this I was thinking that some of my cousins and I have done the same by getting a university education and professions, which make us something of black sheep when in a group of the older generation. In our case it was often due to better opportunities available to our generation. Yet it's good to keep in touch with family even if sometimes we don't have much more in common than some genes! It's a kind of recognition of the history of families going back centuries and even millenia that fascinates me.

Merry Christmas to you and J, may you have much health and happiness! Thank you for your blog friendship in the past year.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
