Aka braces  http://www.thesteampunkempire.com/group/wondrous-inventions-of-the-victorian-era/forum/topics/suspenders-aka-braces  

You are reminding me of the NATO briefs when the Brits (esp RIRs) would snicker like middle schoolers at other militaries' tech talk.  

Oh Captain! Why didn't you ever tell us? Roll Eyes You know, there is no shame* in that.


* You are in a mostly British-American forum. In the UK the word "suspenders" has a different meaning...  Grin



and I had to go look and see what you lads were on about...

 Roll Eyes Now think of ALL the times you have written the word "pants" or "suspenders" in this forum, and realise that the people on the other side of the screen were understanding something very different. How many years have you been a member in this forum?  Grin  For a small fee I can arrange to have the necessary typographical corrections performed....  Grin

Well, I'm alone, and at an age where no one really gives you gifts, so my gifts are self given. But for Xmas, I got two things:

1 I made a historically inspired dinner for my co-workers and roommates:

http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,5743.msg977847.html#msg977847

2 I'm still waiting  Undecided for the woollen cape-coat I ordered from China for one of my two Steampunk characters, and I got a kilt on eBay, also for the Steampunk characters (either). I guess that counts as Christmas presents.






In other news, the aforementioned coat has finally arrived at the airport in Chicago. Exactly 32 days after ordering and 26 days after leaving the customs office in China prior to shipping. I believe they call this "snail mail" ? Or is that something else? Perhaps they sent it by burro, and said burro had to swim the Pacific Ocean, including a stop in Honolulu....

My Dear J -
That is the classic "slow boat from china"
preceded *and* followed by the "slow gears of bureaucracy"
hope your garments arrive soon!

and happy new year!

So I take it this was a modern repro of the recipe (as opposed to a jar filled with 19th C mushroom sauce product) ?  Grin   I believe somewhere in Historical we have a thread for Victorian Era Recipes.

Indeed, although potent I do not think even this sauce could survive that much time.

That's a very nice kilt!

As for myself...the most steampunk thing is that my new laptop has a copper colour...

Thanks! Yes it is, and the cloak coat arrived two day ago. I looks great! I didn't have to spend an arm and a leg for both of them either!  The full costume is ready now save for military insignia and a few mods like fiddling with / reinforcing buttons, etc.  Four major components plus boots, so a lot of permutations to be shown hopefully soon at the Playing Dress Up thread.
