On a slightly related note, a British series on The Crusades is set to
debut on A & E on Monday the 5th of June, produced and hosted by none
other than the eternal Terry Jones of Monty Python, who, by the way, has a
degree in Medieval Literature from Oxford.  My sister, who lives in
England, has seen it already and says it is fabulous!  This should
engender some interesting traffic next week!

Have a great weekend, my fair gentles and ladies of the Merry Rose!
