Pride and Prejudice

I really adore the Pride and Prejudice storyline. The BBC version pushed quite heavily on the 'Darcy is Evil' aspect of the story, as well as the 'Father Bennett was a Jerk', but other than that, it was fun to see the normally under 2 hours storyline expanded into a much longer set.

The English back in this period really loved their wine! There were not 'standard' bottle sizes in these days - consumers would go to a wine shop with their own container, and fill up a set amount from a barrel there. Sort of like when you go to a deli counter and they cut off a pound of ham for you. That is why you typically see the people serving out of crystal decanters with stoppers in them. This is their 'serving vessel'.
