Wednesday, December 1, 2021 Hauck Auditorium | Hoover Institution, Stanford University   The Hoover Institution hosts The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM PT in Hauck Auditorium, at the Hoover Institution. Please join the Hoover Institution's Working Group on the Role of Military History in Contemporary Conflict for a talk with Andrew Roberts, author of The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III. The discussion is hosted by Hoover Senior Fellow, Victor Davis Hanson. Please RSVP by November 29, 2021. Most Americans dismiss George III as a buffoon: a heartless and terrible monarch with few, if any, redeeming qualities (picture the preening, spitting, and pompous version in Hamilton). But in 2017, the Queen of England put 200,000 pages of the Georgian kings' private papers online, about half of which related to George III, and these papers have forced a full-scale reinterpretation of the king's life and reign. Roberts, an award-winning investigative historian (Churchill, Napoleon), had unprecedented access to these archives. The result is the first biography of King George III in fifty years, and the definitive one for our generation. The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III will reverse this maligned monarch's reputation, showing that George III was in fact a wise, humane, and even enlightened monarch who was beset by talented enemies, debilitating mental illness, incompetent ministers, and disastrous luck. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Andrew Roberts is the bestselling author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny; Leadership in War The Storm of War: A New History of the Second World War; Masters and Commanders: How Four Titans Won the War in the West, 1941-1945; Waterloo: Napoleon's Last Gamble; and Napoleon: A Life, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for biography and a finalist for the Plutarch Award. He has won many other prizes, including the Wolfson History Prize and the British Army Military Book of the Year. He is the Roger and Martha Mertz Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, a Lehrman Institute Distinguished Fellow at the New-York Historical Society, and a visiting professor in the Department of War Studies at King's College, London. Victor Davis Hanson is the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution; his focus is classics and military history. Hanson was a National Endowment for the Humanities fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford, California (1992–93), a visiting professor of classics at Stanford University (1991–92), the annual Wayne and Marcia Buske Distinguished Visiting Fellow in History at Hillsdale College (2004–), the Visiting Shifron Professor of Military History at the US Naval Academy (2002–3),and the William Simon Visiting Professor of Public Policy at Pepperdine University (2010).

Relatively poor for most of his life, he worked a variety of ordinary jobs. His rustic, everyday scenes are celebrated today for their depiction of the Georgia of Pirosmani's lifetime, and he has become one of the country's most beloved artistic figures. @Batchelorshow #Londinium90AD: Romans on the Danube, 90AD, just like Americans on the Black Sea, 2021 AD.

Cleland was a Democrat and lifelong public servant in a variety of roles, including U.S. senator and head of the Veterans Administration under President Jimmy Carter. Jim Galloway, a now-retired Atlanta Journal-Constitution journalist, says Cleland's politics were influenced by his military service. He lost three limbs in the Vietnam War.

Ash Brown recently sat down with the multifaceted Tiffany Danielle. The founder/CEO of Tiffany Danielle XO opens up about her transition to entrepreneurship, quitting her 9-5 to follow her passion and the underlining theme of her business. Tiffany holds NOTHING BACK! Web: https://www.tiffanydaniellexo.com Follow: @TiffanyDanielleXO From Tiffany Danielle: I'm a native Georgian, flower child, and the voice behind TDXO. I have to admit straight-away, I'm a recovering perfectionist, and have retyped this same sentence 12 times. Which IS significant progress, so that tells you where we started :P ​ In an era of hustle, I'm a free spirit with a fiercely determined and creative soul seeking to empower, encourage, educate, and embrace my community. I've always been an entrepreneur in some capacity, even when I was working the typical 9-5 grind, because I thought that's what you had to DO: work a “normal” job with “normal hours'' and quickly realized I was never, ever going to fit into this rigid box of what “normal” looked like! ​ As a result, I learned early in life that this concept of ‘normal' is a trick!!! To keep the majority of us (mostly, females) trapped in the cycle of supporting someone else's dream and not your own. Because, honestly it's nearly impossible to break out of that mold if you feel like you're a slave to your career. Let me just tell you, no one is going to admit that you are actually capable of more, if they feel like it will negatively impact their business. ​ Boom. I said it. *queue Beyonce* I ain't sorry. ​ This is where I've found this extension of myself where I get to help people understand that you get to live whatever f'in type of life you want to live with ABUNDANCE. You just have to get out of your own freaking way. *elitists everywhere are cringing and crying* ​ This is not me hating! I'm just totally aware of what oppression looks like in society and once you “see,” it's impossible to “unsee.” It's my blessed gift to be able to help my sisters discover their unique balance to expedite their path to an abundant life of health, wealth, beauty and next level fun on their journey. I've spent many years building a community of followers and friends (yes, friends!) who I have connected with through lifestyle, beauty, selfcare, and motherhood advice. I find a great deal of pride in my relationship with all of you and I'm constantly seeking out new ways to best serve and embrace you. I enjoy being your friend who you can turn to for everything from the best Dorito impos-tah's to what eye cream gets rid of dark circles to what your spirit needs to find synchronicity.

Episode Description:  On this week's special episode, the Duchess of Rutland speaks to Catherine Fitzgerald of Glin Castle in Ireland. In the show, Catherine regales some of the wonderful and amusing legends associated with her family, we catch a glimpse of the ghosts of Glin, and Catherine opens about the unexpected nature of her custodianship.  Top Quotes: "Glin Castle is part of an architectural golden period in Ireland. It was built when most of Georgian Dublin was built. There was a surge in building, decoration, and the arts. Glin is part of a moment of optimism." — Catherine  "I was never brought up to take Glin Castle on. My father thought he would leave it to a preservation trust but they weren't able to take it on. So, it was really my passion, my love for it, that drove my decision to take Glin Castle off the market." - Catherine  "As a custodian, I'm not looking to control the future I'm just thinking about day to day and how I can take care of it."- Catherine "What I'm trying to do with Glin is to make it self sustainable and self supporting. I want to create an estate that can go into the future and is secure." - Catherine "[To be a custodian] is a type of artistic endeavour. As well as a sense of responsibility. And a sense of love for the beauty of the place in a world where there is so much destruction." - Catherine About the Guest and Stately Home: Catherine Fitzgerald is an Irish landscape designer and gardener who is also a member of the FitzGerald ‘dynasty': An historic, aristocratic Anglo-Hiberno family based in Ireland. She is  the daughter of Desmond FitzGerald, 29th and last Knight of Glin. Catherine married her current husband,  actor Dominic West, in 2010 and the couple now live on the estate. Today, Catherine runs Glin Castle as an events venue.  Glin Castle is a Georgian country house and national heritage site located along the River Shannon in Glin, County Limerick, Ireland. The castle has belonged to the FitzMaurice/FitzGerald family for over 700 years and was the seat of the Knights of Glin. In the 14th century the Lord of Desmond elevated an illegitimate son to the hereditary knighthood of Glin. He built Glin Castle, which became the permanent seat of the Knights of Glin. The Knights are associated with a number of well known legends and myths and the family has remained politically and culturally a hugely significant family in Irish society. When  John Bateman FitzGerald, 23rd Knight of Gli, married Margaretta Maria Fraunceis Gwyn in the 1780s he used her dowry to build a new home in the current Georgian style. Neo-classical elements were added to the building later and the new house would eventually boast delicate plasterwork ceilings, Corinthian columns, and an elegant flying staircase lit by a beautiful Venetian window.  About the Host: Emma Rutland, The Duchess of Rutland, did not always stride the halls of stately homes. Born Emma Watkins, the Duchess grew up the daughter of a Quaker farmer, in the Welsh marsh countryside. She trained as an opera singer in the Guildhall School of Music, and worked as a successful interior designer before meeting her future husband David Manners, the 11th Duke of Rutland, at a dinner party. Their marriage in 1992 would transform Emma Watkins into the 11th Duchess of Rutland, thrusting her into the world of aristocracy, and handing her the responsibility of one of the nation's great treasures: Belvoir Castle. While simultaneously running the day to day operations of the castle, and raising five children, The Duchess became fascinated with the history and importance of the other stately homes of the UK. Join The Duchess as she embarks on a wonderful journey through time, to learn more about the incredible homes that have defined Great Britain and, most importantly, meet the other extraordinary women who work tirelessly behind their doors to preserve their history and magic for future...

This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we're featuring a Q&A from the 59th New York Film Festival with What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? director Alexandre Koberidze, moderated by NYFF Director of Programming Dennis Lim. Among contemporary cinema's most exciting and distinctive new voices, Georgian director Alexandre Koberidze has created an intimate city symphony like no other with his latest film. Beginning as an off-kilter romance in which footballer Giorgi and pharmacist Lisa are brought together on the streets of Kutaisi by chance, only to have their dreams complicated when they become victims of an age-old curse, What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? continues to radically and pleasurably shape-shift. Ultimately it becomes a lovely portrait of an entire urban landscape and the preoccupations—and World Cup obsessions—of the people who live there. Koberidze has made an idiosyncratic epic out of passing glances that feels as free and fulsome as a fairy tale. What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? is now playing in our theaters.

It's pretty rare to find organ meat on the dinner table in most American households today, but 90 years ago, the earliest editions of The Joy of Cooking contained dozens of recipes for liver, sweetbreads, and even testicles. For much of history, offal (as organ meat is called) was considered the best part of the animal—so what happened? Why are brains banned in the UK and lungs illegal to sell in the US, and why are Scottish haggis-makers up in arms about it? And the question we're sure you've all been pondering: What do testicles taste like? With the help of Jonathan Reisman, author of the new book The Unseen Body: A Doctor's Journey Through the Hidden Wonders of the Human Anatomy, we explore how the vital functions of various animal organs affect their flavor and taste. Jon's wife, Anna Wexler, also an academic and a writer, joins us to impart the wisdom she's gained from years as a judge at the World Testicle Cooking Championship (aka Test Fest). We learn about the culinary history of offal from cookbook author Jennifer McLagan, and butcher Sam Garwin comes over to help us prepare up a massive organ meat feast: a Norwegian heart and lung pate (yes, we scored some lung!); a Georgian testicle stew; rabbit, chicken, and beef liver and onions; and breaded, fried lamb brains.

In the episode, Imogen introduces the Duchess to the chess grand master who courted Florence Nightingale, we learn about the Wyvill family's important hand in the abolition of slavery, and the ladies discuss the famed and fabulous Tulip festival that is hosted at Constable Burton annually. Top Quotes: "Living in homes like these, you fall in love with them everyday through the eyes of your visitors." - Imogen Wyvill "The wonderful thing about Constable Burton is that it does have this very warm homely feel to it. It embraces you." - Imogen "The past year perhaps has helped us realise to keep life a little simpler. And actually it's a reconnection to the love affair with the British Isles." - Imogen About the Guest and Stately Home: Imogen Wyvill, nee Garner, is married to Marmaduke D'Arcy William Wyvill, son of Marmaduke Charles Asty Wyvill and Margaret Ann Hardcastle. The couple have two children together. Constable Burton has been home to the Wyvill family for over four -and-a-half centuries. The Wyvills are descended from an unbroken line that stretches back to 1066 when Sir Humphrey de Wyvill was Companion in Arms to William the Conqueror. Constable Burton Hall is a grade I-listed Georgian mansion in North Yorkshire, that is privately owned by the Wyvill family. The Hall is a handsome Palladian villa designed by the celebrated architect John Carr for Sir Marmaduke Wyvill, and completed in 1768. It is widely recognised as one of the finest medium-sized English houses built in the Palladian style. In 1520, Constable Burton passed first to Sir Ralph Fitz-Randolph, knight, of Spennithorne, and then to Marmaduke Wyvill who married the youngest daughter, Alice, and received this manor with other estates for her share. The Hall is also surrounded by breathtaking gardens and there's a well known Tulip Festival held annually on the estate.   About the Host: Emma Rutland, The Duchess of Rutland, did not always stride the halls of stately homes. Born Emma Watkins, the Duchess grew up the daughter of a Quaker farmer, in the Welsh marsh countryside. She trained as an opera singer in the Guildhall School of Music, and worked as a successful interior designer before meeting her future husband David Manners, the 11th Duke of Rutland, at a dinner party.

In the note, Lincoln specifically asked for, “a little gun that he can not hurt himself with.” Tad was seven years old when he arrived at the White House. The following day the Civil War started, and the constant presence of soldiers and battle talk sparked the boy's early love of the military. He and his brother Willie played together and pretended to be soldiers in the White House, where the roof was their fort, and the attic was a prison. One of Tad's favorite toys was a doll he named Jack that he received from the Sanitary Commission. Jack was part of many imaginary battles and skirmishes. Jack suffered grueling amputations (which were promptly sewn back on) and injuries and was even sentenced to prison. Julia Taft's younger brothers played with the Lincoln boys, and she would often babysit all four of them. In her memoir of the Lincoln White House entitled Tad Lincoln's Father (1931), she tells of Jack being regularly buried with honors in the White House Gardens to the dismay of the head gardener, John Watt. Tad had already irritated Mr. Watt after eating strawberries that were intended for a White House dinner. When Mr. Watt suggested Jack might be pardoned, Tad asked his father to give Jack another chance. President Lincoln got out a pen and paper and wrote, The Doll Jack is pardoned by order of the President.  A. Lincoln.   October 14, 1888  Birth of Katherine Mansfield, New Zealand poet, and writer. She once wrote, The mind I love must have wild places. Reflecting on her life, she wrote, I want a garden, a small house, grass, animals, books, pictures, music. And out of this, the expression of this, I want to be writing. Katherine's book The Garden Party is a collection of short stories that cover the gamut of emotions and begins with The Garden Party.  The first paragraph is a delight: And after all the weather was ideal. They could not have had a more perfect day for a garden-party if they had ordered it. Windless, warm, the sky without a cloud. Only the blue was veiled with a haze of light gold, as it is sometimes in early summer. The gardener had been up since dawn, mowing the lawns and sweeping them, until the grass and the dark flat rosettes where the daisy plants had been seemed to shine. As for the roses, you could not help feeling they understood that roses are the only flowers that impress people at garden-parties, the only flowers that everybody is certain of knowing. Hundreds, yes, literally hundreds, had come out in a single night; the green bushes bowed down as though they had been visited by archangels. In her poem Camomile Tea she wrote, Outside the sky is light with stars; There's a hollow roaring from the sea. And, alas! for the little almond flowers, The wind is shaking the almond tree. How little I thought, a year ago, In that horrible cottage upon the Lee That he and I should be sitting so And sipping a cup of camomile tea! Light as feathers the witches fly, The horn of the moon is plain to see; By a firefly under a jonquil flower A goblin toasts a bumble-bee. We might be fifty, we might be five, So snug, so compact, so wise are we! Under the kitchen-table leg My knee is pressing against his knee. Our shutters are shut, the fire is low, The tap is dripping peacefully; The saucepan shadows on the wall Are black and round and plain to see.   October 14, 1994  On this day, Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction opened in theaters. In the movie, Uma Thurman's character tells this joke: Three tomatoes are walking down the street -  a papa tomato, a mama tomato, and a little baby tomato.  Baby tomato starts lagging behind.  Papa tomato get angry, goes over to Baby tomato, and squishes him..... and says 'Ketchup!'"   Unearthed Words “Gardeners are never wicked are they?' said Ruth.  'Obstinate and grumpy and wanting to be alone, but not wicked.  Oh, look at that creeper! I've always loved October so much, haven't you?  I can see why it's called the Month of the Angels.” ― Eva Ibbotson, The Morning Gift   Grow That Garden Library Seeking Eden by Staci L. Catron and Mary Ann Eaddy  This book came out in 2018, and the subtitle is A Collection of Georgia's Historic Gardens. What a fantastic topic! I always say that Georgia loves her gardens on a level that could rival the way England loves hers. And of course, what I love about this book is that it's marrying the beauty of these gardens, the design, the particular elements that make them special.  A little bit about the families and the people that grew up and got to live in these beautiful gardens. Along with the great history of the gardens. So I just absolutely love this book and it is so, so, so, so beautiful. Now this book takes us back to the mid 18th century to the early 20th century - so that's the time period that we're focusing on here. And surprisingly, you're going to see all kinds of gardens in this book, not just colonial revival gardens, or country place era landscapes, but also you're going to see rock gardens, town squares, college campuses, and even an urban conservation garden. Now the authors do a wonderful job of walking us through the history of Georgia's gardens. And by the way, all of the gardens that are featured in this book, with the exception of ten, are all public gardens, so you can go and visit them with no problem. And, you know, another thing to keep in mind when you're reading about Georgia and Georgia's gardens is that Georgia was a battlefield during the civil war. So even if some of these gardens managed to get through unscathed, they still had to pull themselves out of the upheaval of the time, Because you had all of the economic, social, and political factors that definitely impacted these gardens and that adds a very unique dimension to the history of these gardens as well. But as I mentioned earlier, Georgians love gardening. In fact, the very first garden club that was founded in the United States that was super official - complete with things like a constitution and bylaws - was the lady's garden club and it was established in Athens, Georgia in 1891. Then, of course, you've got the garden club of America that gets formed in 1913. And that was really through a United effort of 11 different garden clubs, including, of course, The Garden Club of Georgia. So I share all of this to underscore the deep love of gardens and gardening in the state of Georgia - and that's why, of course, this is such a wonderful book. And it's a big book. This book is 488 pages of Georgia garden. Heritage. You can get a copy of Seeking Eden by Staci L. Catron and Mary Ann Eaddy and support the show using the Amazon Link in today's Show Notes for around $24.   Today's Botanic Spark Reviving the little botanic spark in your heart October 14, 1867  Birth of Masaoka Shiki, “Masah-oh-ka Sha-KEY” Japanese poet, author, and literary critic. He died of tuberculosis at age 34 in 1902. Regarded as one of the four haiku masters, he helped develop the modern form of haiku poetry, and he personally wrote nearly 20,000 haiku verses in his all-too-short life. Now in researching Masaoka, I stumbled on a wonderful video by Roger Pulvers, who not only reads some of his haikus but does a masterful job explaining his most controversial haiku, which happened to be about the coxcomb. It was about a simple flower. Now I'm not going to ruin it for you. I don't want to spoil it, but you really should head on over to the Facebook group and check out this video by Roger Pulvers, where he helps us to better understand and appreciate Masaoka's poetry - plus I think you'll really enjoy hearing that haiku that he wrote about coxcomb. I do not know the day my pain will end yet in the little garden I had them plant seeds of autumn flowers   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener. And remember: "For a happy, healthy life, garden every day."

Episode Description:  In this week's episode, the Duchess journeys to the beautiful Birdsall House to meet Lady Cara Willoughby. In the show, Lady Cara tells the Duchess about the incredible, swashbuckling life story of Britain's most reckless naval officer, Lady Cara reveals how Jane Austen was influenced by Birdsall in her novels, and the ladies explore more ghostly-goings-on in heritage.  Top Quotes: "Living in heritage you become extremely aware through portraits on the wall, and the history of the family, that you are a very small link in the chain and, therefore, you inherit it, you do what you feel is right in your generation, and you hand it on." - Lady Cara "As custodians, we are guardians of the house." - Lady Cara "In heritage you always seem to be planning your life for your death." - Duchess "The magic of Downton Abbey and The Crown is that they show these houses to be full of riches and staff but, of course, now they are not at all. We as custodians are juggling all the time to keep the reality and the magic." - Duchess About the Guest and Stately Home: Lady Cara Boyle was born in 1976 and is the daughter of John Richard Boyle, 15th Earl of Cork and Hon. Rebecca Juliet Noble. Her father is a hereditary peer with the house of lords. Lady Cara married her husband, James Willoughby, 13th Baron of Middleton, in 2005. The couple have three young children together. Lady Cara is a graphic designer having attended the Glasgow School of Art. The decision to end the family's 478 years of exclusive use was made by Lady Cara Willoughby, and her husband.  Birdsall House has been the home of the Willoughby family since 1729. The Willoughby family have had a long line of MPs, public officials, and military personnel providing service to the crown. Birdsall was built on the ruins of a 12th century monastery, some of which are still visible at the front of the house. Birdsall is a grade II* listed structure. The Jacobean building was enlarged and owes its stunning looks to the Georgians and to Victorian architect Anthony Salvin who designed the North wing. The Oval Room's width was built to equal the jump of Henry Willoughby's horse in 1790. The walls of the home are also lined with an unbroken line of family portraits dating from 1588 to the present Lord Middleton and to Lady Cara herself. About the Host: Emma Rutland, The Duchess of Rutland, did not always stride the halls of stately homes. Born Emma Watkins, the Duchess grew up the daughter of a Quaker farmer, in the Welsh marsh countryside. She trained as an opera singer in the Guildhall School of Music, and worked as a successful interior designer before meeting her future husband David Manners, the 11th Duke of Rutland, at a dinner party. Their marriage in 1992 would transform Emma Watkins into the 11th Duchess of Rutland, thrusting her into the world of aristocracy, and handing her the responsibility of one of the nation's great treasures: Belvoir Castle. While simultaneously running the day to day operations of the castle, and raising five children, The Duchess became fascinated with the history and importance of the other stately homes of the UK. Join The Duchess as she embarks on a wonderful journey through time, to learn more about the incredible homes that have defined Great Britain and, most importantly, meet the other extraordinary women who work tirelessly behind their doors to preserve their history and magic for future generations.  Resources: To find out more about our Sponsor CircleDNA, visit their website https://circledna.com/en-us/ (here) https://www.onefineplay.com/ (https://www.onefineplay.com/) https://www.belvoircastle.com/ (https://www.belvoircastle.com/) https://www.emmaduchessrutland.com/ (https://www.emmaduchessrutland.com/) https://birdsallestates.co.uk/weddings/ (https://birdsallestates.co.uk/weddings/)
