Erin Juliet and Elizabeth: our BRONTE CORNER




This is of glamorous Tigger (Erin) ... in her little pink dress. She is Elizabeth's and Jul's special friend a great lover of books, and birds & animals. We all encourage each other in everything we do. We've grown a lot since these pics of course, but it's fun looking back now we've got kids of our own. Then on the right is Pooh Bear (Juliet) with her long hair - - taken back in 1986, mother to Peter and Cherry, and now pregnant again with her #3

And then down below there is our beautiful friend Elizabeth (Eeyore) who is about the same build as Juliet and is Mom to dear Corbin, Nadia Rose and now also to Kaden who was born on November 6th 2002, weighing in at 6 lbs 8 ozs after a bit of a tough start in life.

All three of us share this website, and share our email addy and also meet regularly to have fun together and chat with each other on Yahoo Messenger.

Charlotte's Employment

Mr Brontė was a poor man and so it was necessary for the girls to earn their own living, which was quite an unusual thing for young women in those days. The Brontė sisters first became governesses. But because they were always happy when they were away from home they decided to start a school of their own. You can still see the school house  to this day situated just across the cobbled path from the Brontė Parsonage, and you can see the commemorative plaque on the wall.  But the school venture could hardly be considered a success. Very few people would send their children to the school because it was in a rather remote  place and another problem was that brother Branwell's bad behaviour had become widely known.

Pic of Pooh_Bear's Christmas Knickers Dec 2002 from Tigger

All three of us got Winnie the Pooh PJs and pantees for Christmas 2002, so we are like sisters. Up above is a pic of one pair of Jul's Christmas W-the-P Knickers from Erin ....oops sorry "pantees"... but of course Elizabeth has Eeyore pantees and Erin has got Tigger pantees. Jul's PJs are pale blue, Elizabeth's are pink and Erin's are pastel green. So we really ARE the Classicpooh girls, just like the signature on our Email Account says.


SO.... Hi there and welcome to our Bronte Corner!

We are young Moms of 21 and 22! So anyways I'm Erin, with 2 beautiful daughters called Emily and Elaina.
- - - and I'm Elizabeth ... I'm the one with the 2 lovely boys and a girl you just heard about, Corbin, Rose and Kaden ... oops, wait a sec, I just remembered that Jul has also got 2 boys and a girl. The difference between us is that I'm the senior Mom by just over 3 months. During that time baby Grant was giving Pooh-Bear a great big belly which she was very proud of and would dearly haved loved for us to massage and have us talk and sing to our new nephew before he came out to play.
- - - and I'm Juliet with the two boys and a girl who Elizabeth has just told you about. There's Peter (3), Cherry (2) and my precious Grant. I lost a baby in June 2001 when I was horse-riding and went sailing over a high fence. That was very sad. But now I'm very happy again because For so long (seemed like for ever) I was the proud pot-bellied podgy preggy Pooh-Bear with the two bestest-ever girlfriends in all the 100 Acre Wood.

Anyway YOU'RE IN LUCK ! ... know why? because you are just in time to get a sneek peek at the new POOEM which Pooh Bear had written specially for Tigger to celebrate the coming of Spring

Originally it was written for Spring 2001, but I guess it will do for any Spring and can be specially for my dearest Eeyore as well, and be a sort of little celebration for her coming back safe to us with her beautiful new baby boy.


A Spring Pooem for Tigger and Eeyore
by Pooh


(Sort of very sorry Mr Milne)


Wow! The Spring it's started springing,
Lots of birds have begun singing,
Soon the Harebells will be ringing
Table Tennis, ponging ... pinging,
Caution to the winds we're flinging.
Even to my words you're clinging,
Life's SO good.

100 Acre stream's a-gushing,
Owls witting, song-birds thrushing,
Eeyores thistles are a-crushing,
Tiggers bouncing, Poohs a-hushing,
Even Bulls in ponds are rushing,
Sleigh-dogs like as not are Mushing
Now it's Spring

As of old our steps are bending
Just to see the Lark ascending.
Ears to people now we're lending!
Even ways we'll be a-mending
Lots of Patents they're a-pending,
And your senses we're offending
All too soon!

Summer's certainly just coming.
Time for cakes to be a-crumbing,
All our depths to be a-plumbing
Time for truffles to be rumming.
Let's hope down we'll not be dumbing
And like kids our noses thumbing
Once it's May!

All the yarns we tell are ripping!
Maidens measures will be tripping,
On horizons there'll be blipping,
And soon Skinnies will be dipping
Loads of Cowslips will be slipping
Not to mention Parsnips nipping.
Into view.

May is definitely right for dreaming!
Ardent love can now start steaming.
"You's" start lambing, "I's" start gleaming!
Buttermilk can now start creaming,
Time for moonlight to be beaming.
And hems so high they're all a-seaming
Out of sight!.

But all the Hazelnuts see "nuttin",
Of teeth the babies are a-cutting,
Or water tubs which are a-butting.
Not even Tiger Wood's best putting.
They do not hear the stags a-rutting,
Nor hear Pooh's so loud tut-tutting
Nuts in May!

Yeah! May-weather stops demurring,
Frenzied kettles fast are furring,
Air-conditioners soon a-whirring
Sticky-Burrs can start their burring
Cats and kittens will be purring,
Even Tiggers will stop erring
{If they did!]

Lovers they can start a-choosing,
Those that don't will go a-boozing.
Woozles now can stop their woozing,
Kippers? Sure they must be snoozing!
If King-James Bible we're not losing,
Then faithful Widows still go cruseing
... Elijah Pooh is now confusing
In that way!

Capricorn's Tropic sun's now clearing!
And Winter will once more be nearing,
When old Shakespeare would be peering
To-see why Kings are best a-Learing
Through his verse.
So "Shutten-Sie-nun" you dear old Duffer,
Bevor sein bestest Freund must Zuffer
Somsing Vorse.

New Brontė novella offers another perspective on author
By SUE LEEMAN
Associated Press
LONDON

-- For many years, the kingdom of Angria has been known only to scholars who struggled through a manuscript crammed with tiny, spidery writing.
Now, Charlotte Brontė's novella Stancliffe's Hotel, set in a fictional land she and her brother Branwell created, will be published for the first time, shedding new light on one of Britain's most famous writers.

Brontė scholar Heather Glen said Friday, "I think it will change the way in which she's still seen, rather patronizingly, as a woman writer who wrote only about her own concerns," said Glen, who teaches at Cambridge University. "It's very humorous and racy; there's something almost modernist about it with the odd juxtaposition of scenes."

Written in 1838, when Brontė was 23,Stancliffe's Hotel is a series of ironic vignettes that debunk some of the manners and fashions of 1830s England, Glen said.

Edited by Glen, it will be published by Penguin in June [2003]and later this year in a volume with four other novellas set in the fictional kingdom. The others have been published before, but Glen is editing them for the new edition. A U.S. publication date was not immediately available.

Ann Dinsdale, librarian of the Brontė Parsonage Museum in northern England, said the novellas "have been in our collection for many years."
She said most of the work was in the minute handwriting that originated when the Brontės were children, and readers needed a magnifying glass. "They used to compile little books that were designed to be small enough to be read by a set of toy soldiers Branwell had been given," she said. "It was also a way of keeping the material from adults and an economy measure. They carried on the tiny writing after they grew up."

Glen said Stancliffe's Hotel had not been published before "because there's been a mystique about it because it alludes to this fictional country. So there was a feeling that it was inaccessible, and many people regarded it as juvenilia."

Brontė is best known for Jane Eyre, the tale of a poor governess who survives traumatic events to marry the master of the house. Her sister Emily wrote Wuthering Heights, and another sister, Anne, produced The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

In Stancliffe's Hotel, the story is told in a series of disconnected episodes, and there are sudden changes in mood and scene. The narrator, Charles Townsend, is a dandy who confesses that he takes "a full half-hour to dress and another half-hour to view myself over from head to foot."

"By the way Pooh", said Tigger, "Did you really and truly make up that Pooem up above specially for me?"
"Yep", said Pooh, "Really and Truly. In fact it was hot off the press that day I scent it 2 U by E-mail."

"By the way Tigger," said Pooh in his best 'trying to be clever' voice, "I suppose you DO KNOW about Email and stuff like that do you? It's shorter and quicker than 'Eeyore Mail', which is why it's just called E-mail".

"Oh ha ha Pooh, very funny" said Tigger. "Well here's something much more serious for you to think about..... Do you know anyone who's pregnant but worried about it? 'Cos if you do there is a helpful Website called "Maternal Outreach Ministries". Anyone who's worried about being pregg can CLICK HERE So make sure you spread the news all round the 100 Acre Wood will you Pooh? ....and you too please Eeyore.

'Anyone worried about being preggo can CLICK ON "Maternal Outreach Ministries"

"Got that Eeyore? Think you can remember what I've said?..... "Yes Tigger I think I can. I'll try. Not that many people get pregnant near my Patch. It's the Thistles you know" Then after a long pause Pooh said,

"Remember the way you told those Ladies the way to make the most of their figures?

"Oh? What's that you're talking about?", asked Tigger.

"You know", said Pooh,... "when you told them about that wonderful new store called The Goddess Within - 931 Commercial Drive - Wasilla - Alaska - 99654 - (907) 357-2640, and told them to come here and CLICK ON "The Goddess Within" to read about weight loss at this "Daniel's Challenge" offering you a better circulation and a new shape, and loads of other important stuff like "Suddenly Slender", The Body Wrap to end all body wraps, and Homeopathic sprays and Weight-loss supplements

"You mean about Misty's wonderful new place? Yes, now I remember.......Funny old Bear, fancy you remembering that.

"Oh yes", said Pooh, "I know all about Misty's wonderful new place from Little Jenni, my sister. She heard all about it, then read about it on the internet ...

Know what Tigger?.... I really do like the way you always think of other people. In spite of all your bouncing you are so very kind and thoughtful about other people. .... and as for you Eeyore dear, I know you are very gloomy in the books and videos and such, but I just love the way you are such a wonderful best-friend to my own dear friend Tigger. She tells me such lovely things about you and it makes me very happy to know she has such a very special friend living close by.

said Pooh, as they all walked off together to see Piglet. And although Tigger and Eeyore and Pooh may not be girls in the Book Story they certainly ARE very much girls in our Real Life story right here.


Please be patient with us as we carry on constructing a website about our families and our interests in books and animals. We are starting with some pics and chat about our babies and hope to carry on adding pages, or even 1/2 pages, as the weeks go by. You'll be able to tell which pages are ready to view because we'll show the text IN RED to let you know

Hope you like the music on this page. Juliet chose it specially cos it reminds her of Erin, the way it's interesting and makes her feel happy the way Erin does. And now since Elizabeth started to be Juliet's friend as well, the music is starting to remind Jul of BOTH her friends in Alaska.

See you again soon we hope!

THE PAGES BELOW ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION
and only the ones IN RED are finished
