Thanks for the website, tom.  Interesting.


(Of course, people who read the blog as well will know that it's because Little Pear and company are all Chinese.  Coupled with the knowledge that diaboloing originated from China around 4000 years ago we can conclude that Eleanor was a person peculiarly interested in Chinese culture (like I am with Japanese culture  :D)...)
