  acirce: <REST AND MOVEMENT (Peter Ingestad)

During those long, pensive august eventides of yore the peasants of Upland gathered in their gardens and on their verandas for teatime, quiet, happy and comfortly seated they spent their pleasant time stirring their cups.

If a tea cup on a saucer is stirred with sufficient skill and intensity, it begins to rotate itself; the spin to reach being bu a matter of knack and training. With an ever improved ability applied it may increase indefinitely. When the spin is sufficient, radioactive decay is generated, rapidly attaining injurious levels.

Today, the art of drinking tea is all but forgotten, this fact possibly partly explaining the improvement of general health having taken place during the last decades.

But still in the fifties textiles were spun and weft unsing an outmnoded technology inducing radioactivity to the cloth; the more it vibrated, the higher quality, was the cvommon judgment.

Fashion develops in perceptible stillness.- We return to the present - having faith in nothing partcular, awaiting the course of time, seeking solace in the marke's cityscape evolving around a a minor set of whirling compass directions.>

  notyetagm: <EmperorAtahualpa: ... Atractive AND intelligent women like Tea Lanchava are just terribly rare in the Netherlands!>

Rare no matter where you go, I'm afraid. Usually you get one or the other but not both. :-)

May-29-07  Vash854: Sometimes you get neither... :(

Sep-15-10  Whitehat1963: Let's make this the home of the Tea Party Express!

Today's topic: Does Christine O'Donnell's primary win signal the fracturing of the Republican Party?

"Crush, Tear/Twist, Curl",...

These styles of manufacture have the advantage that the finished product is well suited for tea bags, as it gives a quick and coloury brew.
