A Little Ceremony





Sir Gui took two new men at arms tester day, for a year and a day, nice ceremony, they pledged to obey him, he pledged to protect them and theirs. Then the Barony had Fry Night, and I was off to bardic at Bards Haven.

This morning, the sun rose. Imagine that!

A Dog and a Pig?


So, yesterday, about 0900ish, the watch cart calls in to base, and tells them there is a pig cavorting with a dog. Watch Commander Ronan asked somewhat tenuously, real animals? Well, yes, 'fraid so. It took over an hour to round them up,and load them into a cart for transportation... I don't know if the owners were ever found! Ah, Pennsic, it is unique!

Chemistry Stinks!

Beginning to boil the milk to make a period non stick coating on my pot. I mean, what does boiled milk make? Casein, right? Non-petroleum based plastic. Should work, right?


Almost there. Smelly. But effective, I hope. Now I just let it cool, and.... What? Rinse? Surely not wash. Yeah, rinse. I'll let y'all know how it turns out!



Barley, chicken, onions, garlic, herbs, and good friends. Well, not in the pot. And they brought pomegranate wine!


This was the night before...bacon wrapped chicken, or as Gil says, meat candy.

I was too busy to get a picture of my steak last night, but overall, I would say I am eating well!
