Sunday Short Takes

Very short news summary today before I head out to food at Mom’s. 🙂

* Year of events in Winchcombe to celebrate Catherine Parr’s 500th birthday – (One nitpick – the article starts out: “She was the only one of Henry VIII’s wives to survive his rule …” It always bugs me when people are casual with their wording about Catherine outliving Henry because of course Anne of Cleves did as well. I’ve occasionally gotten emails from people telling me I must be wrong about Anne of Cleves being at Mary I’s coronation because as well all know, Catherine Parr was the only one who outlived Henry. *sigh*)

* The Making of a Monster – Another book examining the first part of Henry VIII’s life and reign (Amazon links below)
