Where I live..

This doesn't exactly belong in this forum but I thought some might enjoy it.
It moves on a bit after 1 minute in.

Some chronological disjunctions, but hey..

17th Century London; you must be really old - perhaps worth cloning. I lived there in the 20th Century - so glad I moved to Canada.

Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr
The Poet at the Breakfast Table.

It's the London of Mr. Pepys! Enthralling for me, as it provides a stage--at long last--on which to cast the plague, the great fire, the coronation, the romantic dalliances, the building of the navy, the graft, the making of a personal fortune, and other details large and small that Pepys recorded daily from 1660-1669. What a treat! (Even given a few chronological disjunctions.)
