    Odd bit-o-irony; Corin Redgrave’s birthday is July 16 and Sir Walter Elliot married his Elizabeth on July 15th. 1784. Not sure what the gift for that anniversary is!

    I call dibs on giving Tom Mison his birthday spankings! 😉 I had no idea he played in Lost in Austen; haven’t seen it in forever.
