It was a merry camp with much song and libation. I had brought out my djembe and we played and sung deep into the night. The passing rains could not hinder the spirit of this house! Their fire roared ever on!

Brouhaha was such a good time, I had to remind myself to make use of my camera to capture it! Thank you to our hosts, Penda and Sibylla for using your farm, and all of Northgeatham for their work in making this event possible. I hope to join you all here for many years to come!

In my case, I was grateful that I packed a large sea sponge that I liberally soaked and squeezed onto myself and others. Linen kerchiefs soaked and snapped a few times now and then and worn around the neck were highly effective for keeping cool. Others enjoyed foot baths in the shade.

Sometimes I want to use some funny medieval imagery that I’ve seen before, but can’t seem to find again. This is where I decided to collect them here in “Them Historical Funnies On The Web ROUND UP” and once I collected enough to be worth looking through, make a post out of them.

Brouhaha is one of the smallest events, but that also makes it one of the most relaxed events too. Even so, there is something for everyone. And this year had a special component, The Baron and Baroness of Ramshaven were going to select their Champions of Ramshaven at this event.

This year was hot with waves of rainstorms. But that did not stop the attendees from having a good time.

I have been quiet of late, and that is perhaps due to a lot of SCA (medieval living history) stuff that was going on. So without further delay, here is an overdue update on what exactly went on with this SCA stuff.

Song Sheets, “Diggy Diggy Hole” by Simon Lane ‘Honeydew’. Both Latin Alphabet, English writing and a Futhark version – a Norse alphabet, because most stories we encounter about Dwarves originated from Norse stories. The words on that version are still English and spaced the exact same way as the Latin Alphabet version so you can directly learn how to read Futhark!

Recently I read and joined a discussion that occurred on our SCA Kingdom’s facebook page about achieving that highly sought after ambience – that full immersion sensation where you forget about the modern world and feel like you’ve stepped back in time.

The day before I had gathered the kids in camp who wanted to try the faux woad (blue coloring pencils with tips soaked in water). They really enjoyed drawing on themselves and eventually ended up having a blast drawing all over me.

take the opportunity this summer to participate in the SCA to learn the Arts & Sciences we could use, that are there and waiting to be learned, provided by people enthusiastic to share it. Its an opportunity just sitting there, it would be a shame to waste it.

I had big plans for improving upon or making entirely new camping gear for the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) this coming camping season. All these plans being lined up to work on during the late winter early spring. And low, doth I find my heraldry submission to reach it culmination at peak camp prepping season – only to discover that it requires an IAP (Individually Attested Pattern)

I’ve managed to go through a few more Medieval Heraldry Books, and now have enough memery to warrant another post. Enjoy!
