If you are into big band jazz, I highly recommend a movie a saw just a few days ago,

"Whiplash" I don't have any links but it is well worth searching for !!


Hi D,
I've actually got "Whiplash" on DVD! Very intense, but a great movie!

The weather has been a bit wild overnight here and the snow is on the way...
(Winds hit 129mph at the top of Cairngorm Mountain last night!)
Luckily it was only half of that down where we are but if the snow comes when they think it will.... and it's still this windy.... it will be a bit on the... fun side for the next few days!

Good Morning!

Busy day today for me - probably won't be on too much. I'll see about posting another episode - kind of ended on a cliff hanger didn't I?

We got another inch or two this morning. I love fresh snow! It's when it gets all icy and muddy and icky that I would just as soon have it melt. Oh well, there's a rhythm to everything.

Timely, do you have a dog named whisky?

JD, I don't know how you can work that many hours in a day. That is exhausting!

Gordi, hope you are doing well in your Storm.

Mac, be careful down in the mine!

Tom, that gif cracked me up! Love it! JinMI has a funny peaking gif that always makes me laugh too.

Hope everyone is well. It took me a long time to get any sleep last night/early Morning. The only reason I'm up is because we got a couple of phone calls that woke me up. Might be napping soon.

Today's episode: Lives Given, Lives Saved

Cons Tolin heard the ring of metal on metal and cursed. His eyes flicked up toward the alleyway on the other side of the road. Master Cons Remmen had sent him and Cons Loerval outside the gate to disperse the throng and redirect them to the other arches into the market.

He edged through the crowd until he drew far enough back to see around the corner into the alleyway. A Bastion Lanceguard was locked in combat with two men, and three bodies lay on the ground.

“Oh bloody…Loerval!” He shouted. Hoisting his spear, he sprinted toward the alleyway just as the taller of the two men got inside the Lanceguard’s defense. Tolin watched as he slashed at the Lanceguard’s leg, nearly severing it. The guard went down, and the tall man’s blade came around viciously to finish the Lanceguard off with a thrust through his neck. The men turned away, starting down the alley away from Tolin and Loerval.

Tolin felt more than heard Loerval behind him as they dashed up the alleyway. “In the name of the Queen, halt! Drop your weapons!”

The two men stopped, then turned and advanced on them, swords still drawn. Just past the dead bodies – he noticed one was a woman – he and Loerval took position. He spread his stance, threw his cloak back, and set himself in a crouch. The tall man grinned.

“You want to die too, then, eh?” He had a malicious glint in his eye, as if eager for the fight.

“Galphan, we need to get out of here,” said the shorter man.

The taller of the two – Galphan, apparently – shot the other a nasty look, then suddenly lunged at Tolin while the shorter man went after Loerval. Tolin was surprised at the man’s skill with his blade, and immediately went on the defensive. The man pushed Tolin back toward the bodies on the ground, and out of the corner of his eye he caught sight of Loerval moving back as well. The tall man got past his defense and scored a glancing blow, but a plate on his chain link armor deflected most of the hit. Still, Tolin knew he was going to lose this fight.

The tall man was frighteningly fast. With quick reflexes he knocked Tolin’s spear aside, darted in and swung hard. Tolin brought his buckler to bear just in time to catch the brunt of the cut, but his buckler only redirected the sword blade to glance off his helmet and Tolin went down. Head ringing, he tried to clear his vision, find his weapon, and pick himself up off the ground. Through the fog he dimly heard Loerval shriek.

Then another concussion rocked him and he felt his cheek hit the dirt of the alley floor. Dazed, he pulled himself up enough to see both attackers sprawled several feet from where they had been fighting. He turned his head the other way and was stunned to see the woman – whom he had presumed dead – standing above him. One entire side of her torso was soaked red. She dropped a bloody knife from her hand, swayed slightly, then fell to all fours. Chest heaving, she spat blood on the ground, then lifted her head and reached for him. She gripped his cloak in her fist.

“Help me get to the Temple, Keeper,” she panted. “Must see…Poliara.”

What in the bloody Abyss is happening here? His faculties were steadily returning, and he reached toward the woman. He glanced at Loerval, but his friend’s glazed eyes stared blankly into the sky. He helped the woman to her feet.

It all fit together then, and Tolin reconsidered everything that had just happened. The woman – the Seeress, she had to be a Seeress, despite looking barely older than a teenager – moved a few steps down the alley, but her legs seemed to give out and she pulled on him as she went down. He looked quickly back down the alleyway, now empty except for the four bodies on the ground. Gently he picked her up, and she relaxed as he carried her from the alley. “Take me to the Temple!” He felt a Command. Weak, but it pulled at him.
