Things I didn't know

Well, that would be a long list, here's just two.

(1) Maeve Binchy was 6ft tall at least in high school, and weighed - (her own estimation) - 15 stone.
That is 182.2 or more centimetres. 95+ kilos.
I had never imagined her as a big girl.

(2) L.M. Montgomery feared as she grew older that she was losing her mind. Some of her relatives believe that she commited suicide.

Ah, Maeve Binchy - a girl after my own girth!

There is sooooo much I don't know, and now you have shown a bit of light into areas I didn't even realise I was ignorant. Thank you.
And I love, and echo, Relatively Retiring's response.

Well, MB was very jolly. I would be more than 15 stone if I were 6feet tall, I fear!
