Pride and Prejudice Girl?

You scored as Elizabeth. I am Elizabeth. I am headstrong and intelligent. I love to be myself, and am very loyal to my family. I can sometimes be prideful and “prejudiced,” but I try to remain open minded and I usually regret past mistakes.

How old am I:-)

You Are 29 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view – and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what’s to come… love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You’ve had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You’ve been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

I’ve seen others, but this is helpful.

Stewed Plums

about 60 plums, stoned
3 bruised cardomom pods
1/2 thumb ginger, chopped
5 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons water

Put them it a pan on the stove, and stew (but not for too long).

We’ll see how it goes – we have a surplus of plums, so it’s plum recipes all over the place. I think next will be plum sauce (although, that might have been better use of the very ripe plums, stewed fruit is better with less ripe fruit so it holds its shape).

More Classical stuff

The American Classical League produces this.

There’s a National Mythology Exam (American, obviously). They have sample questions online.

There’s also an Exploratory Latin Exam.
