Thank you for the follow on G+.

I have the public +1 turned off, so you shouldn't see what makes me say "plusgood." I find it annoying, and assume other people feel the same way.

Most posts happen in my Collections. If I have their settings as I mean them, then by following me you automatically follow all but two of my collections. You'll follow Video Monday, Library Tuesday, Comics Wednesday, Gaming Thursday, and Audio Friday.

Don't let the names fool you. I post to them regardless of the weekday.

The remaining two collections require user opt-in: Reading Wikipedia's Vital Articles and Regularly Rebarbative. Feel free to join them. The former just serves as a link blog for my ongoing project to read Wikipedia's level 1, 2 and 3 Vital articles (q.v.).

Regularly Rebarbative has a blurry picture I took just before yelling "Get out of my yard, you damn kids!" As the name suggests, that collection holds everything I post that I reasonably expect others to find irritating or repellent, even by my own unsympathetic and curmudgeonly standards.

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss tea, the first truly global commodity. After air and water, tea is the most widely consumed substance on the planet and the British national drink. In this country it helped define class and gender, it funded wars and propped up the economy of the Empire. The trade started in the 1660s with an official import of just 2 ounces, by 1801 24 million pounds of tea were coming in every year and people of all classes were drinking an average two cups a day. It was the first mass commodity, and the merchant philanthropist Jonas Hanway decried its hold on the nation, “your servants' servants, down to the very beggars, will not be satisfied unless they consume the produce of the remote country of China”.What drove the extraordinary take up of tea in this country? What role did it play in the global economy of the Empire and at what point did it stop becoming an exotic foreign luxury and start to define the essence of Englishness?With Huw Bowen, Senior Lecturer in Economic and Social History at the University of Leicester; James Walvin, Professor of History at the University of York; Amanda Vickery, Reader in History at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Theanine /ˈθiːəniːn/, also known as L-γ-glutamylethylamide and N5-ethyl-L-glutamine, is an amino acid analogue of the proteinogenic amino acids L-glutamate and L-glutamine and is found primarily in particular plant and fungal species. It was discovered as a constituent of green tea in 1949 and in 1950 was isolated from gyokuro leaves, which have high theanine content.[4] Appearance of the name "theanine" without a prefix is understood to imply the L-enantiomer, which is the form found in fresh teas and in some, but not all dietary supplements. The opposite D-enantiomer has far less studied pharmacologic properties, but is present in racemic chemical preparations, and substantially in some studied theanine supplements.

Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub native to Asia.[3] After water, it is the most widely consumed drink in the world.[4] There are many different types of tea; some teas, like Darjeeling and Chinese greens, have a cooling, slightly bitter, and astringent flavour,[5] while others have vastly different profiles that include sweet, nutty, floral or grassy notes.

ISO 3103 is a standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (commonly referred to as ISO), specifying a standardized method for brewing tea, possibly sampled by the standardized methods described in ISO 1839. It was originally laid down in 1980 as BS 6008:1980 by the British Standards Institution.[1] It was produced by ISO Technical Committee 34 (Food products), Sub-Committee 8 (Tea).

Introduction
I have the public +1 turned off, so you shouldn't see what makes me say "plusgood." I find it annoying, and assume other people feel the same way.

Most posts happen in my Collections. If I have their settings as I mean them, then by following me you automatically follow all but two of my collections. You'll follow 
  • Video Monday, 
  • Library Tuesday, 
  • Comics Wednesday, 
  • Gaming Thursday, 
  • and Audio Friday.

Don't let the names fool you. I post to them regardless of the weekday.

The remaining two collections require user opt-in.
  • Reading Wikipedia's Vital Articles
  • Regularly Rebarbative
Feel free to join them. The former just serves as a link blog for my ongoing project to read Wikipedia's level 1, 2 and 3 Vital articles (q.v.).

Regularly Rebarbative has a blurry picture I took just before yelling "Get out of my yard, you damn kids!" As the name suggests, that collection holds everything I post that I reasonably expect others to find irritating or repellent, even by my own unsympathetic and curmudgeonly standards.
