Have you gotten a 2021 Calendar yet! If you love Ren Fests and the performers who make them magical, check out RCEAF's Blursday Calendar!

We’ve teamed up with some of your favorite entertainers to bring you “Blursday - What Happens in Quarantine (.....ends up in a calendar).” Are you wondering what some of your favorite Ren Fest performers have been up to during the shut down? (Because we can tell you, some of these entertainers may need more supervision.) None of these photos have ever been seen before and they are hysterical, disturbing, and just plain not right. Some of your favorites who are included in this EPIC Quarantine Calendar:

Acrobatrix

Barely Balanced

Broon

Clan Tynker

Ded Bob

Don Juan and Miguel

Gypsy Geoff

Hey Nunnie Nunnie

The London Broil Show

MooNiE the Magnif'Cent

Oakley the Tree Man

Tartanic

The Jousters

The Raven

The Tortuga Twins

The Wyld Men

Twig the Fairy

Washing Well Wenches

We have created an 18 month wall calendar chock-full of more people than you’ve seen since March! Our first month started with July 2020, because why the heck not? The calendar goes all the way through to December of 2021 (the month where we all start forgetting what happened in 2020) so there’s still more than enough time to enjoy this calendar!

Are you tired of not knowing what day it is? Are you in danger of missing critical holidays like Shower With a Friend Day or International Sticky Bun Day? Did you catch yourself eating your Sunday roast on a Tuesday or afraid you might have had a burger on Ash Wednesday? The struggle is real my friends and we are here to help!

All proceeds go to benefit the Renaissance Catastrophic Emergency Foundation (RCEAF)501c3 charity. The price is $24 which includes shipping anywhere in the US.

How to order:

1. Comment to this post how many you're ordering.

2. Click this link ( https://checkout.square.site/buy/KWMMUB2SCGBUC2UUWIJTFYML ) and place your orders today...whatever day this is.

Buy one for you, one for a friend! Share this to your friends who also love these acts!

Help others while also helping yourself to a delightful time! It's laugh or cry, baby! We can get through this together!

You need to know when Naked Day really falls...because there’s a good chance your significant other is lying to you when they try to convince you it’s everyday.

The Elders

The Elders

Right about this time in 1998, Norm Dahlor and Brent Hoad approached their musical friend, Steve Phillips, and asked him if he’d be interested in putting an Irish folk rock band together. He said yes. After a few rehearsals and songwriting sessions, The Elders were born.

Not long after, Ian Byrne entered the mix and the rest, as they say, is history.

Over the years, the band’s lineup has changed a bit, but the unique songwriting, compelling live shows and the irresistible connection with fans has earned The Elders a place in the hearts of fans worldwide.

During twenty-two years of touring and sharing songs and stories, The Elders have created a circle of friends as tight as family. Many nights were shared at festivals, clubs, and late night sessions. Many bars were closed, and many after-parties became legends. A bond was created that will never be broken. Steve was there for every one of those stories.

This project was spearheaded by a dear friend of The Elders: guitarist & singer, Trevor Lewington of the great Canadian band, Enter the Haggis. He brought our music community together and created a beautiful piece of art for our brother, Steve Phillips. This collaboration features members of Enter The Haggis, Gaelic Storm, The High Kings, We Banjo 3, The Young Dubliners, House of Hamill, and Searson, and the video was edited by our friend Rose Baldino. We hope you’ll sing along in your living rooms at the top of your lungs.

We believe Steve would appreciate, beyond words, the act of friendship displayed here. We know he would love the video and the way the song was mixed too!

We hope you will enjoy this special gift. You can download the collaboration for free here (scroll down for the download link):

Hello one and all! It has been a while but we have been trying to get through the covid-19 Pandemic like everyone else. since my last post the Carolina Renaissance Festival has been cancelled. We just got notice that The Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival has also been cancelled. So that means we have lost all of our shows this year. We still can take orders and ship them to you. If interested please send a message or give us a call. We are just one of the thousands vendors, entertainers, promoters, etc that has lost there income this year. Hope all make it through and look forward to 2021.

Annabelle & Aiden

The first modern flushable toilet was invented in 1596 by Sir John Harrington who installed one for his godmother, Queen Elizabeth 1.

His invention came complete with a water tank and a flush valve. However, the flush toilet wouldn't really take off for another 250 years. Most of the toilets in Medieval Europe were either holes in the ground, communal outhouses or chamber pots.

If you were lucky and born into tremendous wealth, you would have the luxury of using a garderobe (derived from the French word for "wardrobe"), which was a small rooms built adjacent to the wall of a medieval castle. The toilet would be connected to a vertical shaft that would run all the way down to the ground. Garderobes which literally translates to "guarding one's robes" originated from the practice of hanging clothes in the shaft as a way to kill fleas by using the ammonia in urine.

Occasionally some brave knights would conduct sneak attacks by entering the castle via the shaft connected to the garderobe. Throughout history, there have been a number of famous people who have died on the toilet. Several of them were stabbed from below while in the process of defecating.

These people include King Edmund II of England (30 November 1016), Jaromír Duke of Bohemia (4 November 1035), Godfrey IV Duke of Lower Lorraine (Circa. 26 or 27 of February 1076), Wenceslaus III of Bohemia (4 August 1306) and Uesugi Kenshin (19 April 1578).

Hello everyone. We hope all are safe and well. We have missed seeing those of you we met at the shows. So far due to Covid-19 the WVA festival was cancelled this year. Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival has had to moved their dates to the same time as the Carolina Renaissance Festival. So we will not be in Pittsburgh this year. They plan to lease out the booths for those vendors that can't be there. We hope the show will still be going on but there is a possibility it still maybe canceled. BIG BUMMER ALL AROUND. Of course We are hoping the Carolina Renaissance will still be able to open. We will see. Will keep you updated.
If we can help or be of service please let us know. Be safe out there one and all.

En direct : Confinement au Mont Saint-Michel

Aujourd'hui je fais des prises de vue pour un institut National au Mont Saint-Michel autorisées par DÉROGATION EXCEPTIONNELLE du préfet. L'ambiance est incroyable avec le bruit unique des goélands, des pigeons, du coq, et les seules personnes que j'ai croisées sont les sœurs qui vivent dans l'abbaye... Incroyable... Voici la visite du Mont du pied jusqu'à l'abbaye en vidéo.

Bonne journée à toutes et à tous - Partage autorisé
