No time to really digest this information, but I wanted to get the news out there while you still have a little time left to celebrate the actual occasion.  A fascinating story about Mary Neal (1860-1944) appears in today’s Guardian.  It is well told by her descendant, Lucy Neal, who has been researching the life of the great-great-aunt, who was “a suffragette, social reformer and morris dance revivalist who has been almost written out of history.”  Equally compelling and filled with great content is the Web site of the Mary Neal Project, which I look forward to exploring in more depth.
