    We watched the day dawning. Deep blue turned to gold, On the road to the tournament To witness history unfold. There she sat beside him; They laughed, then laughed more. She would stand with arms open to watch her tyger roar. for Love fights the good fight. Love raises the sword. Love holds up the banner. It holds back the horde. Love cares for the broken. Love avenges the fall. Love elevates the simple. It elevates us all. A crowd was assembled; The sun now burned bright. Tears with cheering mingled as his red belt turned to white. Rose then our Sir Brennan As his pretty Caoilfhionn shone. In this, as in every other thing, He would never be alone. For

    Love fights the good fight. Love raises the sword. Love holds up the banner. It holds back the horde. Love cares for the broken. Love avenges the fall. Love elevates the simple. It elevates us all. The new Knight paced, ready. He entered the list, Gave honor to his lady From whom all honors exist. He took down his opponents. ’Twas hard to best his sword. His resolve seemed to double With each look from his adored. The autumn sun was waning when the final battle came. Determined to give her this, He fought now for her fame. It ended on a heart’s beat. His children with joy danced! He set a crown upon his lady; All who saw it were entranced.

    Love Conquers All – The Lay of Brennan and Caoilfhionn

    This song was inspired by the deed day of my friend, war-brother, pro- tector, Brennan MacFeargus on the day he became first, Sir Brennan,

    and then Prince Brennan. His love for his lady Caoilfhionn* and family served as his inspiration (for good reason – they’re wonderful) and so in

    return for her long love, he made her Princess Caoilfhionn. That is totally worth singing about. By Baroness Aneleda Falconbridge

    Love fights the good fight. Love raises the sword. Love holds up the banner. It holds back the horde. Love cares for the broken. Love avenges the fall. Love elevates the simple. It elevates us all. In one day a knight – a prince - Crowned true love with gold. Love lead all the virtues, for in it others must enfold. None forget the moment As the stars did rise that fall When Eastern prince and princess proved that love could really conquer all.

    Love fights the good fight. Love raises the sword. Love holds up the banner. It holds back the horde. Love cares for the broken. Love avenges the fall. Love elevates the simple. It elevates us all. We will do this together. Our love elevates us all. ________________________

    Ein gute fülle (A good filling) (Apples with Honey & Spices) Wiltu machen ein spise. besnide biern schoene und spalt in viere und lege sie in einen hafen und be- decke den hafen und beecleibe ez mit teyge daz der bradem iht uz müge. denne bestürtze den hafen mit einer witen stürtzen und lege dar umme glüende koln und laz ez lang sam backen. so nim denne die birn her uz und tu reines honiges dor zu. also vil als der birn ist und siude ez mit ein ander, daz ez dicke werde. und gibz hin. Also mahtu auch von epfeln un von küten aber man sol pfeffers genau dar zu tun. Translation: This is how you want to make a food. Trim fine pears and divide in four. And lay them in a pot and cover the pot and coat it with dough, so that the vapor can get out. Then cover the pot with a broad cover and lay there about glowing coals and let it slowly bake. So take then the pears out (of the fire?) and add clean honey therein, as much as the pear is, and boil it together so that it becomes thick and give it out. So you can make also from apples and from quinces but one should add pepper enough thereto. (Ein Büch von Güter Speise) Recipe: Peel & core apples. Roast until soft. Mash with honey, add spices (white pepper, ginger, cinna- mon, cloves, allspice, etc.). Keep warm in a hot oven. My version: I peel & core apples, & slice into wedges. Place apples into a baking dish, sprinkle with spices (white pepper (just a little), ginger, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, etc.) & pour enough hon- ey to coat apples. Mix ingredients together & place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes until tender. Also good for pie filling!!! Just place uncooked into pie shell, cover with another pie shell (vent) & bake

    bring them to a Royal Progress event. Their Majesties are also in need of cords for award medallions. These cords need to be fairly thin and be at least 32 inches long. If you have any questions, please contact me at richard- ffaukes@yahoo.com.

    The Century Challenge

    A number of us have been participating in a

    "Century Challenge" of Pell Work. Like most good ideas I stole this

    shamelessly from someone else (in this case from one of the Western

    Kingdoms). The idea is simple : Do 100 Pell blows a day, for 100 Days.

    (10,000 blows at the successful completion). Start over if you miss a

    day. Currently there are a number of us in the barony and around the

    kingdom that are completing our second pass through this drill for

    2013. (The first time we had four fighters: Me, Balin, Abran, and Henri-

    cus complete the drill for a combined 40,000 blows) We are using Social

    Media to keep a running tally and to help us stay focused and account-

    able. (we use an email list to share what drills we are doing to help

    share ideas and give us a pool of choices to pick from when deciding

    that days lesson plan.) As of this writing we in the mid 80's (early No-

    vember) and should finish up just before
