110th Temporal Tuesday - 9 August

ZAmmi:Going back in time to 1848 to see how London's early police force; the Peelers dealt with riots #TemporalTues

ZAmmi: #TemporalTues 1848 like 2011,was a year when revolution was in the air.Uprisings were widespread across Europe,&Marx published his manifesto

ZAmmi: In 1848 when the world was rocked by uprisings & revolution, 1 man's words shaped the course of history for the next 150yrs #TemporalTues

ZAmmi: in 2011, with the world again shaken by chaos and regime change, who's manifesto dropped into the waters of politics #TemporalTues

ZAmmi: will ripple far into the 22nd century? I'm almost tempted to take a trip forward to find out. #TemporalTues

But I think I'll stick to discovering the future one day at a time. :) #TemporalTues

Captain_Zaphod: #TT100 took Heart of Gold in for it's 100th #TemporalTues tune-up. Galactic Police arriving reminded me that I'd stolen it. TTFN coppers!

Wendell_Howe: 1888 Glasgow - Forgot to tweet. Should use #TemporalTues to return to this morning to tell you of last night's lecture. The Infinite in Nature, in Man, and in the Self

@Canageek: @ZAmmi What is #tt100?

ZAmmi: @Canageek #TT100 is an on-goin celebration of the 100th #TemporalTues we're in the Edwardian era, tryin to stop Enforcers crashing the party

[And the adventure continues from 104th Temporal Tuesday]

@wildfeather: @CassieBarrister [feels a mite guilty for havin been gallavanting across the estate while u were buried under crockery & dishcloths] #tt100

@CassieBarrister: @wildfeather *takes ur arm* nevermindI'lltellulater. Cmon let's find the kid who mucks out the stables, I talked w him a little, #tt100

@CassieBarrister: @wildfeather he knows all the gossip, who comes and goes. Maybe he knows if they took a horse or something.*leads way 2 stable* #tt100

@CassieBarrister: @wildfeather he knows all the gossip, who comes and goes. Maybe he knows if they took a horse or something.*leads way 2 stable* #tt100

@wildfeather: @CassieBarrister *Blinks at you. somewhat at a loss for words* O.o #tt100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic I smile politely, but can't resist the draw of curiosity. My vow to remain invisible is fading fast. *takes Duke's arm* #TT100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords The duke escorts you over to the side table replete with silverware "Your hair looks particularly lovely- #Tt100

@MassTwitFic: @Mousewords "...this morning." he says politely as you walk. Plush carpeting beneath soft indoor shoes #Tt100

@mousewords I feel a blush climb into my cheeks, try to hide it with a pat of my hair. "Thank you.." #TT100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords The duke smiles and considerately deflects attention away. He reaches behind the larger teapots and decanters #tt100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords "This," he says, "if I have perceived my lady's preference aright, is just your cup of tea." #tt100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords "Or rather, coffee." he adds, pouring a delicious thick stream of fragrant black liquid into a china cup #tt100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords He presents it with delicate flare "It's from my own estate in Brazil," hot steam rises, wending its way up to your nose #tt100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic My curious interest flickers into a smile, & I laugh; then accept the cup with fascination. "You have an estate there?" #TT100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords he smiles. "That's why I came back from Huatanay Valley via Porto Velho and Belem on the Amazon" #tt100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords "It was a difficult trek, especially with a game leg," the duke admits."But it was worth it."his smile changes to private #tt100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords amusement, recalling something he does not say. But then his eyes trail back to your face and he adds candidly; #tt100

@MassTwitFic: @Mousewords "But it was better than being tossed about in a ship,seasick & delirious,all the way across the Pacific,&round the Cape!" #Tt100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords "Well, almost better." and that secret smile comes back again. #Tt100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic I take a sip of the hot, dark ambrosia, savoring its smoky-earth flavor; nothing like Starbucks in the 21st century #TT100

@mousewords: @massTwitFic (in a good way). I can't help watching the Duke's face; his eyes with their changing expressions & quiet humor.. #TT100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic his air of mystery is a tempting puzzle. I take a stinging swallow of coffee to shove me back on course. "It sounds- #TT100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic "as if your journey was..not uneventful?" #TT100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords his eyes lit up with hidden fire, he places his fingers across his lips. Pensively he begins "Yes, it..." #Tt100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords and then stops. #Tt100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic "It..what?" I ask, in a low, confidential tone--against my sense of decorum, but darn it I'm curious. #TT100

@MassTwitFic: @Mousewords "There was..." His eyes drop and flash about the room "Some difficulties. Did you detect the notes of caramel, and" #Tt100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords "red berries?" He goes on, "there's even a hint of chocolate. In fact," he slides another pot over "I find," #TT100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords "it goes very well together." He urges you to take another sip. "Is that dangerously revolutionary?" #Tt100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic "It might seem so to some," I say with a grin. "But I have to agree with you." Especially since #TT100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic -chocolate & coffee practically fuel my days back home.."But. You were saying..difficulties?" #TT100

@MassTwitFic: @Mousewords "Don't worry," he says, "I shall keep our deviant ways to myself." and his eyes light up with dancing merriment #Tt100

@MassTwitFic: @Mousewords then he exhales with bashful discomfort at your pressing "I.. was taken captive by a highwayman.." #TT100

@MassTwitFic: @mousewords "highway, woman, in fact." He glances at you amused, yet sheepish. "I almost got shot" #Tt100

@mousewords: @MassTwitFic "Oh my!"--I don't have to feign ladylike vapours; my hand darts to my lips automatically. #TT100

@ZAmmi: @mousewords ::hastens up to u and rudely interrupts.:: please pardon the intrusion, but, *hisses* we have a *mouthes* slight problem #Tt100

@mousewords: @ZAmmi I blink; glance from you to the Duke to you- & "problem" wins out. "Ohhum. Excuse me a moment plz." #TT100 @masstwitfic

@MassTwitFic: @ZAmmi the duke makes no objection to your interruption, but politely defers with a formal smile #tt100

@ZAmmi: @mousewords Wild's disappeared, and it seems she's not the problem. Rusty said something about FP #TT100
