Howdy, folks.

Here are the daily updates I have posted on and the facebook fan page over the past month -

You'll notice that I'm starting to list a lot of one-of-a-kind items and sometimes more than the usual one new thing a day. This trend will continue and accelerate this next month, as I'll be clearing out the armory and workshop for items that can go to new homes (and not-so-coincidentally help me cover some unexpected expenses.) This will begin to include more antiques from around the world, so keep your eye on the website and facebook!

and here it is, your wisdom of the month:

And when he enters the combat,
let every man of good lineage
think of nothing but splitting heads and hacking arms;
for it is better to die than to live in defeat.
-- Bertran de Born, ca.1184
