This page is where I am gathering my non-woodworking stuff as it comes up.

This is a series of articles that I have written for newcomers to Thor's Mountain, Meridies, or the SCA.
Lilies vs. Gulf Wars - A comparison of two of the week-long SCA opportunities out there to choose from.
Chosing the Right Tent for YOU! - A discussion of the many and sundry features of medieval-style pavilions and making the right choices for your chosen medieval lifestlye.
A Typical War - This is a VERY short description of what goes on at a typical SCA war.
A "Typical" Event - This is a somewhat longer article on what to expect from your average weekend-long event in the northeast corner of Old Meridies.
A "Typical" Tournament - This article describes what you can expect from your average tournament fought in northeastern Meridies.
Rank and Protocol - This is a very simplified article on formal forms of address, intended for newcomers to get the basics.
Cloven Fruit - A short operators manual, should you ever be presented with a fruit studded with cloves. (It's a kissing game.)
Costs - A brief essay on how much money it costs to participate in the SCA in Meridies.
Clan Bluefeather - This is a short article explaining the origins and purpose of Clan Bluefeather, a support group for alternative lifestyles.
No Laurel is an island unto himself . . . (blah blah blah) Below find links to family, friends, supporters, and worthy opponents who have helped me get where I am. Now if I could only figure out where I'm going . . .
Here's something I'm sure everybody is facinated by: my bars.
Okay, that's not fair. These are really small concert venues that also happen to serve good Irish beer. One of the hazards of participating in the SCA is that your hobby grows hobbies. One of the "overlap" areas of SCA participants is traditional Irish music. Irish tunes tend to show up at our bardic fires and sing-alongs. While almost all traditional Irish tunes are post-medieval, for some reason that doesn't seem to bother too many people.
Be that as it may, along the way I've accumulated a few favorite artists and a few favorite venues outside medieval re-enactment, and here are the ones I visit whenever I can.
