  1. Thank you! Some of the bits I have been working on for over a year.

     

    Also, there's no such thing as an uninteresting language fact (used to be a librarian, moi). This one actually had me squeeing; the book is set in Shropshire, so everyone is basically Welsh at heart. The name Sarn now makes SO much sense in context (narrator has a very ambitious brother). ❤️

  2. 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!

  3. 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. :)
