Anzac Day: Remember

It's Anzac Day today, and Radio Riel is presenting a special musical program hosted by my online pal and Aussie, "Edward Pearse". Tune in and remember the brave ones from the Southern Hemisphere who gave their all in World War 1.

How does the Faire fair?

The Washington Renaissance Fantasy Faire will actually go on this year (yay!)...but it will be in far-away Buckley (boo!), so I don't see the Warhorse Guild participating this year. We never make book, anyway, and commuting that far would be more than the pocketbook can allow. That, plus "Lady Devon" is still recovering from her ghastly hospital stay last Fall, and not really in any condition to donn armor, pick up a Zoppe-weight lance, and charge down the tilt.

I had an attack of the sillies and made a little "what if we DID decide to do faire this year?" short, which I present here. Fans of the Richardson version of "Charge of the Light Brigade" will get the obscure "noddles/doodles" reference.

Easter: a more serious post

Want to know more about Easter (and Passover)?

Pagan origins, Christian symbolism, the Feasts of Israel, and more here.

Happy Easter...!

...and a blessed (belated) Passover!

Yes, that's me, the bunny, in Second Life. Went to a Bunny Hop last night in Steelhead.

Fast Murders, Cheap

Blog Sloth

As has been pointed out by a reader of one of my other blogs, I haven't been posting a lot lately. At this time of the year, the yard/garden starts to explode and I have to spend every good day outside working on it, or I just throw up my hands by the end of May. We're entering the month where we have to mow the grass twice a week. No lie. Luckily it settles down after a bit. At times like this, I'm glad I discovered the Twitter thing. I can randomly post thoughts, links, and bad phone pics at the drop of a hat, from anywhere, something that suits my "lifestyle" pretty well right now.
