Some things I've included already are: The Conception of the Novel, Midwifery in the 1900's, The Occassional Knitters Society, The Halifax Explosion, A Brief History of the Vibrator, and a bit about Tea Leaf Reading.
Wonderful beyond measure in his web-geekiness, DH finished the special Tea Leaf Reading feature tonight. I thought I'd give you a sneak-peek at the essay and then let you try it out for yourself! (By the way, we are working on a way to share it...so others can put the tea leaf reader on their blogs and journals as well.)
I love tea! I love the rituals that surround it, the colour that blooms in the bowl of a cup as it's poured, the steamy first scent of it. Visit most any kitchen in Nova Scotia and you're sure to be invited to "have a cuppa."
Tealeaf reading (sometimes known as Tasseography, or Tasseomancy) is an ancient tradition known to many cultures. From China to Eastern Europe to the UK and across to North America, many a kitchen table, parlour, or gypsy wagon has been graced by women who read leaves (or sometimes coffee grounds) for entertainment and enlightenment.
