I had discovered a rather interesting story about an uncharted area of the skies and discovered the legends about a floating island there within.

The steampunks at Dragon*Con this year set a new world record, beating the record set at San Diego Comic Con. Here is a link to the huge panoramic photo of the group. Each individual can be zoomed in on, just like a Google Earth map.

Lady Gwendolyn Chapter 2

Ahh my childhood the first 10 years. As I mentioned I had four siblings and our life was initially filled with hard work but many joys living in the vast wilderness. Hard work never fazed me it was in my blood you could say. Both my parents worked from daylight to sunset everyday of their life on our small farm. In the morning you could find them tending to the livestock: of a few cows, chickens, pigs, goats and our main stay horses. My father’s family raised horses in the old country and now… Continue

Edison's Anti-gravity Underclothing, 1879

Anti-gravity seems much more a thing that would have been invented by Nikola Tesla rather than Edison. Of course, given Tesla's. . . . eccentricities, I could not imagine him turning his spectacular invention into undergarments. THAT I can well imagine being something Edison would do.

 

And, just a comment on the illustration itself, I think the young…

I think it is time to start learning to sew...

Ugh,

 

I remember the horrible black and gold pillow I made in middle school home ec. Somehow that is what haunts me when I sit in front of a sewing machine,and just throw my hands up before I even put my foot on a peddle but this could change it for me.

Gun Fight! The 13th of November, continued...

    From my vantage point on the ancient stone bridge, the sight before my eyes was truly amazing. To my right was the two colossal statues who's bottom halves I had become acquainted with in our dim lantern light. Now fully revealed by my illumination spell, the statues could be seen in their complete glory reaching upwards to the ceiling of the great cave. Two my left across the bridge, much to my wonderment, stood two  statues of a similar nature! So great was my surprise at the…
