this beverage was available at a recent "viking camp" associated with leipzig's famous Goth Festival.
for them what cain't understand deutsch... it is HEMP MEAD....   yes, folks, honey wine flavoured with hemp seeds...    pretty tasty...  no psycho-active effects...

miko as jacob in "joseph"

has it really been three months since we performed "joseph and the amazing technicolored dreamcoat"?
it was great fun; and we sold out all three performances....

after i stopped shaving, the horns grew back

local booze

some of my favourite exotic local beverages. odin trunk is honey beer. satan gold is a strong beer, quite full of hops. met is mead: there are mead-makers at the local tuesday market and the medieval fairs all have several meadmakers selling their wares. the hirschblut (deer-blood) is fruit wine. i confess i bought it because of the devils!

winter has come... (and gone already)

we had some excellent snow, and people were skating on the canals and ponds... but this is all just memories. it was a short winter. there was no snow at christmas, but it came in late january, even after my birthday. but two weeks of frozen canals and now we seem to have spring, although there are no buds nor crocuses yet...
