Fascinated to learn that Catherine of Aragon introduced marmalade to Henry VIII. You can’t buy marmalade in Spain these days. They don’t seem to have the taste for it. Too bitter probably. We Brits love it!

Interesting, and timely.

I included an analysis of "The Battle of Carnival and Lent" in the latest issue of my own Substack.

And a couple of nights ago, I watched "A Man For All Seasons" for the first time, so a certain zaftig Tudor has been very much on my mind! 😂
