Here is a story that I found quite interesting.  The current Earl of Shaftesbury was a techno DJ in New York City's hipster occupied East Village.  Then his father the Earl went missing, only to be found dead at the bottom of a ravine, apparently murdered by the Countess and her brother.  Then this young man's elder brother came to visit him in New York only to die of a heart attack during his visit at age 27.  This young heavily tattooed floppy haired New York hipster then went back home to do an extraordinary job restoring his ancestral seat and ensuring the continuation of his legacy.

A case of divine self correction or a divine blessing for the young Earl, it could be remarked by others more acquainted with such matters. A remarkable turnaround for someone more accustomed to the turntables, is what I'd remark in wishing him well with the continuing recovery of the family estate.

Why are you rattling off the plot of a soap opera ?

Seriously this is odd to say the least.

They're a remarkable family. The first earl was a leading figure in Restoration politics, a member of the sinister Cabal (second a). His grandson the third earl was a famous philosopher in his day, and the seventh earl perhaps Britain's greatest ever humanitarian, his name still revered. The present earl's late father appears to have been notable for nothing except oddity, though quite harmless by all accounts and his grisly death was a tragedy (for which his wife and brother-in-law unquestionably were responsible). One can only wish the current incumbent well in his efforts to preserve the family heritage.

Perhaps they should change or adopt a new or second family motto: Expectantly Unexpected?

  Real life can be as dramatic as any soap opera.
