These instructions should also work for single handed weapons, but the collar of foam is overkill for the "low profile" tips currently allowed on broad swords.

Janine & Tom's Rehearsal

Thanks Tom and Mrs. Leary, we had a fun time.

Long Island catering is pretty sumptuous, and we met some fun people. Stacy promised me embarrassing stories about Janine, but only came through with one story of a drunken night that resulted in the loss of the command cell phone. Hopefully we'll get more stories in the future! Pictures below.

For those who are interested, pics from the weekend in NY should be live today here. But not 'til this afternoon.

<-These were all unchecked until a few minutes ago.

Many thanks to Lord William for pointing out that he couldn't post.
So now the floodgates will open, right? Just click under your name where it says "create content."

I've tested it below, with an account that isn't me.

Wow, IE Sucks

This web browser is so bad, if it weren't for Microsoft's forcing it on the majority of people as the default, no one would use it. If I'm going to be stuck using Windoze, I should definitely switch to Firefox, available from
