The AEther field guide

What is AEther? AEther is a gas that exists in the atmosphere around us at all times. There is six different types each existing in different forms, and different levels of abundance. The most common and easiest to explain is Universal AEther (Uni). This AEther is in the greatest abundance, surrounding us at all times and in all places. This AEther can exist in 3 forms. Gas, liquid, and solid. In gas form only mages, human beings genetically capable of manipulating the AEther, can wield it. In… Continue

Lost Cities and Unexplored Lands

Many 19th century world explorers and their discoveries made a tremendous impact on history. One of my favorite Egyptologist, Jean François Champollion, journeyed to Egypt, as one of the four members of the Franco-Tuscan Expedition, in 1827.  Of course he is primarily known for deciphering the rosette stone and unlocking the knowledge and history of the ancients Egyptians. Jean Francois Champollion is also the first curator of the Egyptian collection at the Louvre. Another great Egyptologist…

Convention Extravaganza–Reporting from Nova Albion: The Wild, Wild East

 First stop in this Con Extravaganza series is Nova Albion, based in Santa Clara, California. This con was formerly named Steam Powered, and I first heard about it from Mike Perschon's blog years ago. This year's Nova Albion is the first steampunk convention to address a non-Western theme, and I was intrigued when they had invited me as a speaker back in… Continue

Renewal of Wedding Vows

We renewed our wedding vows yesterday in a little town called Wick. Beautiful ceremony in a lovely chapel that is situated in what amounts to a private park. I have some lovely photos to post on Flickr and Facebook when we return home. Some people have already posted a few on their Facebook pages.



Off to Glastonbury today for some sightseeing and a meet-up with a brother-in-law for some family business.

England is quite lovely this time of year. The weather changes from…

Steampunk Tea Time

Like most little girls, I grew up playing tea party. Ceramic and plastic tea sets are still some of the most popular toys, if you have daughters or granddaughters, they probably have at least one. I don’t know if you’ve seen a show called Pregnant in Heels, but they had a proper English tea on one episode, serving scones, and Spotted Dick with the tea. I learned the correct pronunciation of scones from that episode. I use to mistakenly say scone with the o sound pronounced as in bone when…

Upcoming Event: SPWF Performers

So previously gave probably the briefest of the brief overviews of the Steampunk World's Fair, and to be perfectly fair, I gave you just enough to pique your interest so you'd come back for more.

And if you're reading this, I've probably done just that. 

So moving on, we will address some of the Special events that will be happening at the fair.  If you've watched yesterday's video (link for those too lazy to scroll…

Vacation in England - 2011

We arrived at Gatwick airport on May 5th, had tea & coffee, then hopped a train for Portsmouth. Sightseeing in Southsea, Guildford, and having a grand time with my wife's family in Cosham took up most of the time between then and now. Took a train to Bristol today, to spend a few days with friends. Tomorrow, we're off to renew our wedding vows in Wick. Sunday or Monday we'll motor over to Glastonbury for a picknick and then tour the grounds of the abby & then the town. Or the other…
