  11. Funny! Both my sister and I remember having to memorize what happened to each of Henry VIII's wives exactly in order (D,B,died,D,B,survived -- I think)when we were in school in England. I also did a pretty good color sketch of him that I hope will turn up again someday... Enjoyed watching several episodes of The Tudors on BBC this past weekend while my husband and son were away and I could be in charge of the remote.

  12. London Underground uses Transport for London's Travelcard zones to calculate fares, including fares for use on the Underground only. Travelcard Zone 1 is the most central, with a boundary just beyond the Circle Line and Travelcard Zone 6 is the most outlying and includes London Heathrow Airport. londonunderground.ws

  13. The outbreak of World War II delayed all the expansion schemes. From mid-1940, the Blitz led to the use of many Underground stations as shelters during air raids and overnight. The Underground helped over 200,000 children escape to the countryside and sheltered another 177,500 people. The authorities initially tried to discourage and prevent people from sleeping in the tube, but later supplied 22,000 bunks, latrines, and catering facilities. After a time there were even special stations with libraries and classrooms for night classes.
