Mead Recipes For Your Enjoyment

This entry was posted in Beverages, Foods by Cleave on

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.

The Site Is Back

This entry was posted in General Musings by Cleave on

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.

Tomorrowland (2015) Screenshots

Tomorrowland-2015-MoviePosterThis is one of the finer movies that I have seen to depict both dystopia and utopia all in the same film. You have both young and old, representing both and you see what happens when you feed the wrong wolf. That is something from the movie. It is making the point that is you feed the negative, all you will get is the negative but if you have a positive outlook then anything is possible, allowing you to see your dreams come true.

I found that the acting was both fun and frivolous and just a joy to watch. It has a high caliber cast and just with most Disney films a rollercoaster of highs and lows that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Since the film has already been reviewed by my wife, link below, I will not get into the specifics of the film right here. What I will tell you is that after watching this film you will want to watch it again. It is a film that the whole family can enjoy over and over again.

This racing game is one of the better ones that I have had the pleasure to play. It is for both the casual and avid racer with many different cars and track to race on. The game is literally all about the race with several different classes for the racer to work their way through. The graphics are stunning, Codemasters really outdid themselves with the making of this game. In many ways it is better than the Need For Speed games that are so popular and more enjoyable than Gran Turismo. The game is even multi player, if you want to play it that way.

I was fortunate to participate in the Welcome Back Weekend for Elder Scrolls Online. I was invited to download the game and play because I had been in the beta test in 2013. The reason I didn’t stay are no longer relevant anymore. I am glad they gave me a chance to look at the game in a new light. A lot has changed since beta and from what I can see it was for the better that those changes were made. So many changes that I can’t wait to play again, even with me having to use the WASD keys, yuck!

Even though I had a great time with the event there were a few hiccups along the way. The download was over 35 gigabytes and on a high speed instead of broadband connection it took me about 3 nights of downloading to get it all. So I was all set when the event started except when I tried to log in they have a computer verification system.
