I admit. My toilet runs intermittently.

It usually does when I do. At least, when they don't have the water shut off in my building, which happens at least 2 or three times a month.

I hate it when toilets get the runs. Uppity toilets. We need more bidets here in the U.S. to keep the toilets in their places.

Drink plenty of liquids. Get lots of rest. In ten days to two weeks it'll pass.

Sorry that is quick.

If I had Internet access at home this wouldn't be so hard Ezra.

But I'm doing the best I can so I guess that counts for something!

Amazingly enough, prostitution was legal during the Victorian period. There were tons of brothels all over the major cities of England, and of all different kinds. There were lots of flagellation brothels; these were places where primarily men would go to be whipped by women or by men. There were also gay male brothels. You could go to a park in London at night, pick up what were called the “park whores” and give them a very small amount of money to have sex openly in the park. I also write about gay “cruising,” which was quite common. If you knew the right place to go and knew the right signals, you could pick up a man on the street and have sex in an alley.

I wonder if they were like baseball signals? A touch to your cap followed by tapping your arm with two fingers could mean either to bunt or have sex in the alley.
