Nice one. It is believed to be connected with fertility. The current Marquis of Bath (Longleat) claims that he was concieved on the figure, ending his parent's difficulties in that respect. As it happens, his father was a rabid Facist, and did his damnest to indoctrinate his sons. No luck with the current Marquis, who is a real character, famous for his large band of wifelets and 'interesting' murals.

Of course, here in the west country we have a great amount of Roman inheritance.

....and i'd heard you British didn't like to bathe much...




Sorry I really couldn't help myself there, it had to be said just being a cheeky imp, hope you know i'm just kidding hey...

...think I might be getting into some deep water there, so I'd better go before I get myself into trouble...so see ya!


Seriously, thanks for the 'fertile' history lesson Del Boy...interesting stuff, I believe you are correct and also well informed.

Fertile from Latin fertilis, from ferre to carry, bear....when applied figuratively, it suggests readiness of invention and development <a fertile imagination>.

Yup - I've always dealt in fact as well as fine antique art. Especially with Rome and the rest of Italy. No-one misses the Italians more than I.

Batheing - not so, we always insist on houses with at least 4 bedrooms and three bathrooms, and nowhere in England is far from the sea. Some of us swim the channel, and it rains constantly. You must be confusing us with people who live on continents.

Yeah - but we painted ourselves blue and got on with it. As it happens, as a cockney, I might just be part of the remnants of the Roman garrison in London. Part of the legacy they left behind to fend for themselves when they cleared off after so many years. How about that for relics?
