An meritorious accomplishment (but he looks like that guy in "Vicar of Dibley").

Very funny British TV comedy. We get it here via public television. I sometimes make such references as a fun way of gauging "global culture". ;~)

That's OK. Actually I have just been given a lot of CD's/DVD'd from someones deceased estate, and among them there are two BBC British Comedy- there may be something there! No time to watch it now, but the holidays are coming, so plenty of time then-and the November Giveaway challenge will be over .

I like that old houses have statues all over. Its something I miss in modern architecture, which is just cubes and flat surfaces
