A couple of quick notes

Hello all!

First up, I'm pretty sure that I'm coming down with a cold, so there is the possibility that updates and comment approvals might be a little slow over the weekend if I'm not feeling well. I despise getting sick in the heat of the summer (not that I really enjoy it in the cooler months, but I'm sure most of you know what I mean). So anyway, depending on how foggy my head is, I may or may not be on the computer much.

And the other note is about people including their email addresses in the question submission form. Although I leave it as optional, I strongly encourage people to put an address in there so I can email you to get a clarification of your question or answer it directly if it is something that is just a quick answer or already has been addressed on the blog. If you don't see your question show up on the blog after a couple of days, it might mean that it was already answered or that I wanted to clarify something, but without an email address I couldn't contact you. It might also mean that I did email you but my message ended up in a spam folder. Messages will come from either tudorhistory or lara

Have a nice weekend y'all!


  1. I hope you feel better soon. Break out the hartshorn ...

  2. Thanks. I think I'll stick to the hypertonic saline spray to keep my sinuses open though. :) (And breathe-right strips are my best friend for sleeping when I have a cold!)

  3. Crush a few pearls and steep 'em in vinegar. Then pour the entire concotion down your throat. Hal VIII swore by that method, especially for the plague. Imagine what wonders it'll do for 'just' a cold!!


  4. I think I'll save the pearls for wearing and the vinegar for making pickles. Although the reaction of the vinegar and calcium carbonate would be fizzy, I think, so at least it would be like drinking a really tart soda. :)
