It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)

Thanks, Elfreda! I think we are getting close to a possible design for our cooking stove/ fire pit. The original, found in Pompeii, is not designed to be portable. But we can adapt the design to something that breaks down and fits in a sturdy tote or box. The original is estimated to weigh upwards of forty pounds. I'd like our to be lighter. :D

Here's a German site that shows a reproduction.

here's a British site with various metal-y bits for cooking and lighting.

I am really looking forward to a summer of eventing where:

A. I am not reigning
B. I am not exhausted from school/reign/work.


I've been a very good girl this year and I've asked Santa for a cooking firepit. I know there are a lot of really good cooks on the Hive and I'd like your suggestions. I do a lot of Dutch Oven cooking already, but the grill on our firepit just can't stand the weight. It needs to be portable and break-down-able.

So, what makes a good fire pit? Bonus points if it is even close to Frankish-ish.

(I'm going to make this a public post, so if you know someone who might be able to comment, please pass this on)

I got a book through ILL. It's Harmand's 1929 treatise on Jeanne d'Arc armor and costume, basically late 14th/ early 15th century. I've put a test image here. Can you please let me know if this type of image is useful? The work is out of print and way out of copyright, so I don't think I'm breaking any laws. I will be photographing it for myself. It's rather fragile so I don't want to scan it.
