Finally reading the rapier war point melee scenarios. WTF. Can we just have some straightforward melees for a change? I think copious amounts of alcohol were involved in the planning of the combined mountain battle.

Why yes, 12 lbs of turkey breasts DO fit in a single crockpot. Mwahahaha....

I kinda want one of us old and broken types to use this design. 😜

Time to start another onomastics article! (Because having a dozen in various states isn't enough?)


I just finished an onomastics article. Is it possible to put it up on the Walburgan page you're hosting for us? (PDF, size is 1.22 MB)

So glad we pack an electric kettle for tea when we travel by car. 😁

So, think we can get anyone to submit Crasie Catledy?


Hard deadline to finish proofing and editing an article for KWHSS. So what am I doing? Working on extracting names for a totally different article that will take months to a year to complete.

OTOH, I realized far later than I should have that the book had a place name index that explained most of the weird variants (such as Caineseam = Cainessam = Keynsham). I’d figured out a fair number already, but help with the few that were left was nice.

A girl needs to change it up sometimes, I guess.

Police formed a human chain to save the Crown of Thorns, Tunic of St. Louis, and other artworks.

Just a reminder that the submission deadline for KWHSS Proceedings is May 15.

Heh. Just found this in the MED.
