My hermitage is not listed as such in any directories. Haven't been to Jackson's, but I suspect mine is less grand by far. Feral cats cavort outside and z compost pile smolders in the summer heat.

Quite rustic, it is...


As i said, i rather think i would prefer your "Hermitage" . . .

This image only gives a partial idea of the huge house which Jackson rather quixotically referred to as The Hermitage. Perhaps it felt as such after having established one to the two major political parties in our country's history, as well as winning the Creek War and the ultimate battle of the War of 1812. The gardens are beautiful and extensive, and it certainly is worth the visit. You couldn't pay me to live in such a house.

Yes, it is a grand pile. I love when places like that are titled so modestly...

If ever you're in Nashville, do stop by, it's a pleasant afternoon . . .

I'm Saudi, and I wasn't so surprised to hear that the King Fahad has died. In fact, I think he was dead long time ago, well, mentally at least.
And his brothers were running the country instead of him anyway. So I think it'll still be the same.
