For my David- Prayers and Healing Please!!

I have come to ask you for your prayers for my beloved David. I received a call Friday morning that he was in a diabetic coma and not expected to live beyond a few hours but most certainly not the day. We did not know he was diabetic. David also has some other medical issues such as COPD and high blood pressure.

As of Sunday I found out that David was taken off the sedative they gave him when they put the vent in. He has not…

Time, Talent, Treasure


Twas the month before Yuletide

And all through the land

People were rallying

and lending a hand.

There’s Mary Malone

who knits up a storm

To keep those less fortunate

toasty and warm.

Benny’s talent lies in baking

He bakes wonderful cookies and cakes

Benny has a secret

He shares everything he makes.

Olga keeps her coins

in the cushions of her chair.

Although her funds are… Continue

Purple Rose and her Child

I would like to send my best and some reiki to them both if that is ok and I hope it is ok to do what I am doing on this blog. I don't know her or her child but my heart goes out to those in pain. I don't know what happened but it does not matter I just know they are in the hospital and there is no improvement from what was said and I offer candle lighting and reiki healing energies being sent and offer to put them both in my reiki crystal healing grid. Many many healing blessing to them both.… Continue

The following is a letter that I wrote to a friend of mine who is a paranormal expert:

I took this photo outside today. I took

others at the same time and, in the same place but they are okay, even

the color is right on them.

This is my familiar B W. Bat Cat. He is very intuitive, more than any

cat I have had in a long time. But the thing that gets me is, in this

spot of the woods "the exact spot" I heard an owl all night… Continue

Good to be Back!

Well, I'm happy to be back from my October travels and all caught up! Glad to see the site is buzzing with activity!
Tons of updates have been going on. If you haven't already noticed, the profile questions have been updated as well. Some of you may need to go back and revise your answers accordingly.

Marino Lecchi: geometria, cosmo, armonia e dinamica

MARINO Lecchi studia il cosmo dal proprio punto di vista globale, da un interesse

pittorico per i colori caldi, ricercando l'impronta della plasticità nella complessità,

cercando di superare il visibile.

Strutture geometriche, piani, prospettive aeree dominano tutta la composizione…

Gifts,Uniting, Partnerships,

Sometimes the gift is something we have to give up. Think about that and see how a smoker could be well rewarded with that gift. I never said it would be an easy thing to do. Then there's gifts to loyal companions. A necklace for the Lady. tools for a Lord,even armor for both.

Now do that with no reward expected or infered.

A gift of uniting for the simple joy of the partnership. The best Gifts are always to oneself, Knowledge, Enlightenment, Peace. A timely warning can be a gift.And… Continue

Mary Poppins' Bag

Yes, its like the Mary Poppins' Bag of never-ending projects.

In a nutshell

-Invite and make welcome.

The Facebook fanpage is in slightly better standing though the Facebook staff could stand to communicate more. If you are a facebook user, please stop in and say hi! I am very… Continue

Yes, progress has been made and can be seen! I believe I am well on my way to conquering the beast we lovingly refer to as The Castle Life Department. I've also taken the reigns of the Facebook fanpage. I hope to see you all there as well!

Once Mercury relieves my computer I will be tackling graphics, logos and all that fun stuff. I have been learning CSS and I even joined a ning group all about...CSS! I have been ninja-ing around, tweeking here and there for the sake of legibility.

So,… Continue

The other night I dreamt of a zebra. Not just any zebra though. It was rainbow colored and shimmered like a dragonfly in the sun. Any ideas on what this could mean? The zebra felt like a friend and perhaps from a fairy-type...? Also, later that day my mother called to let me know my grandmother who helped to raise me was passing over. She is still on this side, she is 95 years old. Could this be my answer?

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
