Because this weekend April 14th - 15th marks the 100th Anniversary of the Sinking of the Titanic ( it struck the iceberg before midnight going down after midnight on the 15th). I decided to set up a little buffet for a cup of tea with that emphasis.
Perhaps your eyes have been drawn to the salt and pepper shakers which I got about 10 years ago - aren't they interesting? I have to admit they are unusual. I hope you will enjoy John Harney's new tea which he has blended for this time of reflection. The tea is a blend of Keemun, Assam, Ceylon and Oolong sachets.
Whether you are hosting a Titanic Dinner, Tea or just interested in history - it would be wise for all of us to reflect on the price that was paid for MISTAKES THAT WERE MADE when Captain Smith ignored warnings to slow the speed of this great ship down in order to be better prepared for icebergs that were in the sea.
From the day we are born - we hear warnings....don't do this and don't do that .......OR.....we can learn so much and reap great benefits from warnings that come our way. Sometimes we choose to ignore warnings that we hear. We think we know better!
I have chosen not to use my blog for the purpose of politics but I am going to say one thing. Our country has been warned about the debt we are building. Will we listen to the warnings everywhere or continue to stay on this course of more and more debt?
I invite my blogging friends to link with me at the bottom here and join me for FRIENDS SHARING TEA which takes place on Wednesdays. Maybe you didn't do a Titanic Tea but have another tea occasion to share....BUT I ESPECIALLY WANT TO THANK THOSE OF YOU WHO PREPARED SOMETHING SPECIAL for this blog party!
