      I think maybe the vodka is seeping into my brain but...
      What a Viscount? Is it vise-count? I only have one vise you'll be happy to note. Can anyone guess?

      Khriss - I thinks you got a good point
      My mind slipped to lower depth and thought of Vise - count
      and vise counts for sure. But dis - count, that's a big deal or a good deal. But I see your a Baroness. Could play with that spelling but won't.
      lol

      If you believe in royalty - which I don't - it is a title that falls just below an earl and just above a baron. Women generally have that title if they are married to a viscount, but can have it in their own right.

      But I must admit I did like being an empress there for a while. If I could be any empress I would first choose Elizabeth of Austria, who was one of the most beautiful women in Europe. Too bad she was married to that old sourpuss Franz Josef. Unfortunately she was assassinated. Now I'm a goddess, so it doesn't matter.

      Hey, I have to know the enemy to fight the enemy!

      Still, Empress Elizabeth was gorgeous!

      In Richard Morton's book "A Nervous Splendor," which is about Vienna during the late 1880s there is this gorgeous full-length image of Elizabeth wearing this stunning gown. Wow!

      All this talk of biscuits is making me hungry, and I just ate lunch!
