The following is from a very VERY old site I used to have, Celtic Voice, not up anymore. It shows 2 of my recipes for the alcoholic beverage known as mead, or honey wine. I am sure those in the SCA will remember some of this.
First, let me apologize for the site being bonkward for the past few days. During a site update the database was misplaced and we had to go hunt for it. Was a odd journey, but everything is now up and running.
Remember folks, Twitter can be your friend at the oddest of times. This time it saved my but and the site as well.
Hope you all continue to enjoy the site. Even though I have not posted much of late, I do maintain all of the site and create all the graphics and make most of the screen shots that you have enjoyed over the years.
This will fe a Samhain to remember, Halloween for all those that are not history buffs.
While making a standard Southern version of No-Bake Cookies, Cleave tried the originals, and found at first he didn’t care for them because of the oats in them, but changed his mind after the second day. The he couldn’t help himself. He then suggested I try making them with some other kinds of cereals. So I tried toasted oat O’s, then he suggested we just don’t use any grains at all, and set them in a 9 x 13 pan and cut them like fudge. Just WOW! Using E.S.P (Experimentation, Sensibility, and Practicality), we came up with an amazing candy that was an instant hit! Hope this works out for you as well as it did for me.

Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft is the most painful and hardest game that I ever played. This game is more then Dark Souls. This game is like PS3 game Uncharted, but in the 1990s. This was before Uncharted. In this game, you have to find a strange ancient meteorite that crashed millions years ago. Lara is on her quest to find this meteorite. The first level was hard at first, when I figured things out I got used to it. After the first level, the game will get hard later on.
I hate the island in the South Pacific. That was most frustrating levels in that game. First you got look everywhere for a door or a key, then I had jump big giant leaves to go to plain crash, and finally, not least, jumping in the river and get eaten by piranhas! The graphics has changed from the first two games, but has some great texture and details. Read more...(305 words, 31 images, estimated 1:13 mins reading time)
It was the 1990s and animated movies were outstanding, no matter whether hand-drawn or computer animated. The tales come from the studios of Disney, Universal, and Warner Brothers were amazing, and our millennial kids could not get enough of them. The Magic Sword: Quest for Camelot is one of those movies. A new take on the Arthurian legend, this focuses on Kayley(Jessalyn Gilsig), the daughter of Sir Lionel (Gabriel Byrne) and Lady Juliana (Jane Seymour). Kayley is enamored with all the ideals of what a true Knight of the Round Table stands for, and wants to be a knight just like her father. At this time, the kingdom is very prosperous and at peace, but too peaceful for one knight in particular. Sir Ruber (Gary Oldman) has become greedy, and looks to take Arthur’s land for himself. To do this, he must obtain Excalibur, and after attacking Arthur to steal it, Sir Lionel is caught between them and takes a fatal wound. Ruber succeeds in getting the blade, and gives it to his hench-creature? Griffin (Bronson Pinchot) to fly back to his keep for safe-keeping.
