  1. So, I was watching a bit of medieval reconstruction when I remembered there was something odd about medieval glass I'd wanted to research. The short version: glass in many parts of northern and western Europe used to be made with wood ash to provide some of the necessary chemistry, so it had an interesting green-gold effect and was called "forest glass."

     

    Here's a window with forest glass and leading; I have been considering a medieval house model (from my favorite book) for some time, so now I at least have the windows for it!

  2. Well, since Todd--the birthday boy, @DragonsLion--is asleep, I just wanted to pop in and thank everyone for him. (Don't worry, he read quite a few of the posts.) He got new dress shoes, and tomorrow his folks are taking us out to dinner. No hot dogs involved for either of us. :)

     

    That was my only worry with our names being the way they are. My birthday isn't until December. :)

    Are you calling BoltBait old  😃 

    When my kids are home I've found myself turning into my parents when I ask, " what is this shi  rubbish"   Music is always subjective.  I bet I'm the only person here who likes this.  But it's amazing on headphones

     

     

     

    You're not the only one, don't worry. :)

     


  4. @welshblue, they taste like cheap sadness. Corn dogs are a mildly-spiced sausage coated in cornbread (which, if that hasn't made it to the UK, is a crumbly and lightly-sweet bread made of corn meal) and then fried. Usually, the eater dunks them in ketchup.

     

    Most people I know like them. I think they're a waste of perfectly good cornbread.

     

    ...Maybe somebody who actually likes them could chime in.
