Do the kids of today know they are watching Upstairs Downstairs? I never followed that show too closely back in the day, but I saw the episode when Prince Edward visited and the one with the servant showing up at the back door pregnant. Today I got far enough in Downton Abbey to see a servant show up at the back door pregnant.
Speaking of the nobility, I have ravens in my backyard the size of the Other Queen's Ravens at the Tower of London. Ravens the size of cats. The size of ponies. The size of Mini-Coopers. They are particularly terrifying when they come in for a landing. For a moment before they land they hover with a few extra flaps. It's just hang time. No reason. They just do it to intimidate the other animals.
