    They did not become wealthy by spending money on fixing chimneys that would only fall on the gardener anyway.

    I dunno ... ... when you look at the chimney - IT IS plumb, from where it turns, the house is crooked.

    Got it!

    "Up there", they build houses on the slope of the hill instead of building them level.

    Thanks, learned something new.

    Still, though, wouldn't all the furniture slide "downhill", so to speak?

    BTW, what's the technical term for the differential expansion that causes chimneys to curve like that - I used to know it, but I've forgotten....
