I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I currently live in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, because of cheap real estate. I have lived in Stillwater, Norman, Midwest City, Oklahoma City, Waco, Austin, and El Paso. I have been a Boy Scout, Boy Scout Leader, member of the SCA, Amtguard, Kappa Kappa Psi and two college marching bands. I have played D&D, Champions, and other RPGs. I have attended Baylor, Tulsa Community College, Oklahoma State, Rose State, and the Universtiy of Oklahoma. I did graduate work at the University of Texas. I read Latin and French, both with some difficulty. I used to better with both. I am married with two children. I am a lapsed Anglican. I am an admin at Wikipedia.
This blog is essentially an amalgamation of my interests. I sporadically write several other blogs, but the vast majority of those post are cross posted here. I have a variety of interests and each interest has it's own blog. These include Medieval Art and Medievalism, historic architecture of Tulsa and surrounding areas, interesting places to visit in Oklahoma, English and Celtic traditional music and other music, and surgical technology. Everything I write on these blogs ends up here, and I occasionally will write things here that only show up here.
We had snow today, about four inches. This was the first big snow in years that fell on a day that I could take the kids out to play in it. Sophia built a snowman, using the traditional three ball form; dark stones for eyes and mouth, carrot nose. Rosemary made a snow angel, and then we came in and had hot cherry turnovers and made maple syrup and snow candy. All good fun. It may well be the last snow of the year. Don't let The Elder Daughter here me say it, but I hope so.
